The Range Rover Velar is like no Ranger Rover before. The Velar is the exact name used for the very first Range Rover prototypes in the late 1960s. It would be an understatement to say that it is visually stunning because it’s just so much more.
Featuring big wheels, a tall beltline and an almost coupe-like profile over appealing proportions. The interior capitalizes on simplicity and modern design with a clean, uncluttered layout that looks as modern as it appears functional.
Design and Styling
From top to bottom, the Velar is the result of designers’ dreams. In photos, it apes the shape of the Range Rover and marries the distinctive design elements of the Evoque with more than a hint of Range Rover Sport about its side profile.
This is Land Rover’s enormous jump into a design-led future. All of the exterior lights are LEDs. The flush-fitted door handles are a triumph of engineering and less a gimmick. Its squat shape is enhanced by the contrast-colored glass roof. Oversized wheels give it a convoluted sense of balance. McGovern describes the exterior package as “glamour.” And we couldn’t agree more.
“Design is at the core of everything we do,” – Gerry McGovern, Chief Design Officer for Jaguar Land Rover.
The Velar started life using similar underpinnings to the Jaguar F-Pace, but don’t think of it as Land Rover’s F-Pace.
The Velar offers a trio of engine choices including with a 247-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter gas inline-four from the Ingenium engine family and a supercharged 380-hp 3.0-liter V-6. There’s also a 180-hp diesel 2.0-liter Ingenium four. An eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are standard across the board and it is said to do 5.3-second zero-to-60-mph run when equipped with the V-6 gasoline engine.
We absolutely love the Range Rover Velar, and we know you do too. With its stunning lines, refined interior, and incredible performance, the Velar is the ulitmate luxury SUV.
