The Range Rover family welcomed a new member to the SUV lineup for 2018, the 5-passenger Velar. It’s powerful design and sophisticated silhouette is a staple of the Land Rover brand and fits perfectly between the Evoque and Range Rover Sport models.
The 2018 Velar brings forward revolutionary changes with refined luxury, technology and off-road capability. One example is its aluminum architecture which is both lightweight and agile for enhanced performance.
Three variants of the Velar are available — Velar, R-Dynamic and the First Edition which is exclusive for 2018. There are also another three specification packages; the S, SE and HSE, for further upgrades to the Velar and R-Dynamic models.
The most memorable feature of the Velar is the InControl Touch Pro Duo system that includes dual 10-inch infotainment touch screens, InControl Apps and SSD Navigation. You simply download the smartphone app and have access to journey tracking, remote start and vehicle location.
When it comes to design, the Velar has a sleek curb appeal with flush door handles that deploy when touched. The continuous waistline and floating roof are kept as a signature design cue of the Land Rover brand.
For added safety and convenience; the R-Dynamic models come with Adaptive Cruise Control, Emergency Braking, Driver Condition Monitoring, Traffic Sign Recognition and Lane Keep Assist. Families will also appreciate the SOS Emergency call feature which utilizes vehicle health data and satellite positioning to direct help to your location.
Overall, the Velar is a very attractive vehicle coupled with luxurious textures and details throughout. Passengers will have lots of room in the spacious cabin to stretch out when riding for long distances. The seats can even be upgraded to include massage and heat inside the cushions for maximum comfort.
