About the Range Rover Velar
Positioned between the Range Rover Evoque and Range Rover Sport, the Range Rover Velar takes modernity, glamour, and elegance to elevated new heights. Staying true to the legendary off-road reputation of Range Rover, the Velar is powered by your choice of lightweight aluminum 4-cylinder or sophisticated inline-6 mild-hybrid engines paired with an advanced 8-speed automatic transmission. Signature design cues found on the exterior include flush deployable door handles, an integrated rear spoiler, and a foil-stamped front grille. An Electronic Air Suspension enables automatic access height for easier entry and the powered gesture tailgate allows simple loading with hands-free access. Inside the cabin, both drivers and passengers will discover distinctive interior ambiance through optional reclining rear seats, four-zone climate control, and two optional 8-inch Rear Seat Entertainment screens.
What the Critics Say
What’s New for 2023
The biggest change to the dynamic Range Rover Velar for 2023 is the arrival of a new range-topping HST variant. Exclusive exterior appointments for HST models include Arroios Grey paint along with bold 21-inch black alloy wheels. Velar HST trims also come standard with the upgraded 395-horsepower 3.0L P400 i6 MHEV powertrain along with an adaptive damper system and adjustable air suspension. Otherwise, the Range Rover Velar carries on essentially unchanged from last year.
Range Rover Velar Features
From crisp acceleration to impressive fuel economy, the Range Rover Velar delivers it all through your choice of aluminum 4-cylinder and powerful 6-cylinder engine options. The specialized Intelligent Driveline Dynamics technology constantly monitors the conditions to deliver an appropriate level of torque depending on the terrain. Optional Configurable Dynamics allows drivers to choose specific chassis settings in order to prioritize comfort or the vehicle’s performance via transmission mapping, steering, and throttle inputs. Standard All-Wheel Drive (AWD) gives you confidence and stability across the entire spectrum of road conditions. A sure-footed, composed drive is a result of the latest Electronic Air Suspension found on the Range Rover Velar. An Active Rear Locking Differential ensures that no obstacle will stand between you and your next adventure. Drivers can also experience responsive power delivery combined with outstanding fuel efficiency thanks to the advanced plug-in hybrid powertrain offered on the Range Rover Velar.
Intelligent, sophisticated, and progressive are three adjectives to describe the exquisite exterior design of the Range Rover Velar. With an instantly-recognizable Range Rover lineage, the Velar wears beautifully-balanced and optimized exterior proportions. The commanding front fascia cascades across a continuous waistline until it culminates in a taut, tapered rear end. Flawlessly integrated deployable flush door handles contribute to the aerodynamic profile of the Velar. Available 22-inch alloy wheels enhance its already striking character lines. You’ll leave a memorable impression as you pull away thanks to quad tail light signature elements within a full-width graphic incorporating the iconic Range Rover script.
Elegant simplicity is the hallmark of the interior of the Range Rover Velar. Two seamlessly integrated 10-inch Touchscreens, and minimalist controls as standard, provide easy access to the latest advanced technology. Premium materials include supple leathers or premium textile and suede cloth which can be specified for seats, steering wheel, and accents throughout the cabin. Available Configurable Ambient Lighting gives you a selection of 10 colors to help personalize the mood inside the cabin. The renowned Sports Command Driving Position is designed to enable you to see further down the road and view your surroundings with greater clarity.
Unique to Range Rover, the cutting-edge Pivi Pro infotainment system not only looks like no other, but it also performs like no other. Two of the most innovative aspects of Pivi Pro include in-car artificial intelligence and a self-learning navigation system. Range Rover Velar models feature a 12.3-inch high-definition Interactive Driver Display that can receive and project a vast amount of driving information, entertainment, and data. An optional Head-Up Display reduces distraction by helping you keep your eyes on the road ahead. Even those riding in the back will stay free from boredom thanks to an optional Rear Seat Entertainment system with twin 8-inch screens integrated into the front headrests. Standard driver-assistive safety features designed to keep you protected include emergency braking, a rear camera, driver condition monitor, lane keep assist, along with front and rear parking sensors.
