Today, Land Rover introduced the latest addition to the Range Rover lineup, revealing the 2018 Range Rover Velar at the renowned Design Museum in London. Introducing a fresh infusion of contemporary style and sophistication to the Range Rover series, the Velar is strategically positioned between the Range Rover Evoque and Range Rover Sport. It sets a new standard for luxury, refinement, and off-road prowess in the mid-size SUV category, elevating the driving experience to unprecedented levels.

Five elements define the absolute desirability of the Range Rover Velar:

Unveiling True Quality through Simplicity.
Crafted and developed with a steadfast commitment to ‘reductionism,’ the opulent and expansive interior serves as a serene haven. This space seamlessly melds refined simplicity with premium materials, showcasing exquisite details, including controls that remain concealed until illuminated.

The Future Evolution of SUV Design, Exemplifying Precision in Every Aspect.
Bridging the gap between the Evoque and Range Rover Sport, the Range Rover Velar defines the ‘white space’ in the lineup. Embracing reductionist principles, the Velar is a testament to technology-infused design, marking the next evolutionary stride in the continuous expansion of the Range Rover portfolio.

Honoring Range Rover Heritage while Breaking Free from its Constraints.
With nearly five decades of Range Rover pedigree, there is a sense of confidence to reach new heights, empowering customers to enrich their own experiences. The regal legacy of the SUV realm traces back to the original prototypes in 1969, aptly named Velar.

Advancing a Legacy of Technology and Innovation for Range Rover.
Building upon a rich history of innovation, the Velar seamlessly integrates cutting-edge technologies, captivating design, and an unwavering focus on meticulous details that foreshadow the Range Rover design language for upcoming models. Features such as the dual touchscreen infotainment system, Touch Pro Duo, a vibrant Heads-Up Display, ultra-sleek LED headlights, seamlessly integrated flush deployable door handles, and the sophisticated touch of burnished copper detailing provide a preview of design trends for forthcoming Range Rover models.

Surpassing Expectations with Land Rover’s Time-Honored Versatility Across Diverse Terrains.
Fusing the anticipated refinement sought by customers with the unparalleled capability that defines Land Rover, the result is a harmonious blend. This entails exceptional on-road performance marked by agility, alongside an outstanding ride quality and composed handling that exemplify Land Rover’s legendary prowess across varying terrains.

Harmoniously Proportioned and Technologically Advanced: Introducing the Range Rover Velar

The Range Rover Velar effortlessly showcases its proud lineage through optimized proportions, accentuated by formal, horizontal feature lines, a floating roof, and a continuous waistline, culminating in taut and tapered lines at the rear. An optional 22-inch wheel complements the vehicle’s striking silhouette, heightening its commanding presence.

At the forefront of contemporary design, advanced technology is pivotal to the Velar’s allure. Full-LED headlights, the slimmest ever on a production Land Rover vehicle, and flush deployable door handles contribute to a sleek design language, achieving an impressive coefficient of drag of only 0.32Cd—an unmatched aerodynamic efficiency in Land Rover’s history.

Inside, the Velar’s interior is a serene sanctuary, combining spacious luxury with premium materials and finishes. A standout feature is the sustainable, premium textile seat material, a unique offering in the segment, developed in collaboration with Kvadrat. The Dapple Grey woolen upholstery is complemented by Suedecloth inserts in Ebony or Light Oyster.

The Range Rover Velar’s interior space is marked by the introduction of the Land Rover Touch Pro Duo infotainment system, featuring two 10-inch high-definition touchscreens seamlessly integrated into the cabin architecture. With seating for five and ample storage, the Velar provides a luggage compartment volume of 34.4 cu ft. behind the second-row seats.

Underpinning its performance is an incredibly lightweight and stiff aluminum-intensive body structure, coupled with double-wishbone front- and Integral Link rear suspension. This foundation ensures agile handling, exceptional ride comfort, and outstanding refinement.

Safety is paramount, with a comprehensive restraint system, including six airbags, and advanced driver assistance systems such as Autonomous Emergency Braking and Adaptive Cruise Control.

True to the Range Rover legacy, the Velar excels in capability across various terrains, thanks to features like all-wheel drive, four-corner air suspension, and a suite of traction technologies, including Terrain Response® 2 and All Terrain Progress Control.

The Velar offers a range of powertrains, including a refined 180HP four-cylinder Ingenium diesel, a new 247HP four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine, and a powerful 380HP supercharged V6 petrol engine.

The model lineup comprises Standard, S, SE, or HSE specifications, with the option to choose Black and Premium Exterior Packs for added distinction. For the most exclusive experience, the Velar First Edition, limited to approximately 500 units in the U.S., stands out with luxurious features, a 380HP 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine, extended leather interior, copper weave carbon fiber trim, a Meridian Signature Sound System, and special 22-inch Split-Spoke wheels with a diamond-turned finish, available in three exclusive colors.
