Designed to sit perfectly between the Range Rover Evoque and Range Rover Sport, the new Velar brings an enhanced level of modernity, glamour and elegance to the Range Rover family. The Velar reaches new heights for luxury, refinement and all-terrain capability, never before reached in the mid-size SUV segment.
Beautifully balanced, the Velar is ideally proportioned from its taut tapered lines at the rear to its continuous waistline. Enabling a generous amount of space inside, the long wheelbase contributes significantly to the vehicles elegance. Adding the finishing touch to the stunning silhouette are the dynamic alloy wheels, especially the dramatic 22" designs. Aiding the contemporary design of the exterior is impressive advanced technology, such as the full-LED headlights that are slender than ever before and the flush deployable door handles which contribute to the low drag coefficient of only 0.32.
Inside, the Velar is simple and elegant with a refined design giving the cabin an air of sophistication. Switches are kept to a minimum, coherent with Land Rover's belief in reductionism and helping to create a calm atmosphere. The centrepiece to the Velar's interior design is the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system, seamlessly blending with the surrounding fascia. The Touch Pro Duo consists of two 10" touchscreens that are hidden behind secret-until-lit surfaces.
To tailor the perfect look for you, customers can choose from a range of exterior design treatments to make the Velar even more distinctive. For a unique front bumper with enlarged apertures to increase cooling and create greater visual presence, the R-Dynamic model is sure to impress. Copper-coloured detailing across the front bumper blades and fender vents draws the eye, whilst customers can opt for a black contrast roof that lowers the visual centre of gravity and complements the Dark Grey Satin alloy wheels.
For added visual differentiation, Black and Luxury Packs are available. The Black Pack is available on both the standard and R-Dynamic models and introduces black detailing across the exterior, including the bonnet and tailgate lettering. Reserved exclusively for the standard model, the Luxury Pack enhances the Velar's natural elegance with high-gloss detailing to the lower exterior trim as well as fog lamps and much more.
"The Velar interior is a calming sanctuary combining exceptional space with authentic materials and finishes, precise execution and beautiful details such as hidden-until-lit controls."

Making the Range Rover Velar even safer, the 19MY Velar will feature additional driver assistance systems.

What's more, customers will now benefit from a Rear Camera, Front and Rear Parking Aids, Driver Condition Monitor, Emergency Braking and Lane Keep Assist as standard.
