Range Rover Velar Is a No-Holds-Barred Luxury SUV

Range Rover Velar to join UK's best-selling luxury model line-up

Called the Range Rover Velar, the midsize luxury SUV aims to deliver new levels of refinement, elegance and technology to the segment.

Next week's Geneva Motor Show will see the unveiling a fourth version, the Range Rover Velar, it's name referring to that given to the original Range Rover prototypes in 1969. If those engine choices seem familiar (the smaller gas engine is new), that's because the Range Rover Velar is closely related to the Jaguar F-Pace in mechanicals and size. Although the press release studiously avoids mentioning the "J" word, one glace at the Velar's specifications make it clear it shares a platform with the Jaguar F-Pace, right down to its 113.2-inch wheelbase. Like all Range Rover vehicles, the Velar offers exceptional capability on a variety of surfaces, terrains and weather conditions.

The Velar is available with three powertrains: a 180-hp diesel four-cylinder engine, a 247-hp gasoline four-cylinder, and a 380-hp V6 gas engine that can go 0-60 miles per hour in 5.3 seconds. At the lowermost part of the range, the Velar has a 2.0-liter turbo diesel with 180 PS on tap. The First Edition will be available for a single year and sits above the HSE for the 3.0 litre V6 petrol and diesel models. Both the engines will come mated to a ZF 8-speed automatic gearbox. Bookings for Range Rover Velar in India have started along with other countries in the world. The Velar has 9.9 inches of ground clearance, and it can wade through up to 25.6 inches of water when equipped with the four-corner air suspension. The back end is markedly inspired by recent additions to the Land Rover lineup like the brand new Discovery, yet the overall design is more fluid than that of the aforementioned Evoque. The Velar gets laser technology for its headlights combined with a very tell-tale signature Range Rover LED daytime running light pattern and a large cross mesh style grille.

About The Author Andrew Charman is a freelance motoring journalist with over 30 years' experience. This gives it a look of coupe like styling making it sleeker in design.

The Range Rover brand is now nearly 50 years old with the first model unveiled in 1970. Acceleration from 0-60mph takes 8.4 seconds, with fuel consumption and Carbon dioxide emissions of 52.5mpg and 142g/km respectively.

There's also a 5 inch TFT display between two analogue dials for the driver's instruments. Or, in other words, the United Kingdom automaker sought to pare down the Velar's design, omitting any visually busy-looking features in order to make the new SUV as clean-looking and sleek as possible.

The fourth member of the Range Rover lineup inaugurates a futuristic infotainment system named Touch Pro Duo that brings concept vehicle tech to the showroom.

When the new model lands Down Under before Christmas, it will be available in a mind-numbing 42 versions.
But fear not, entry-level buyers - adaptive dampers are standard across the range.

The 2018 Range Rover Velar is perhaps less unexpected. The Range Rover brand has emerged as Britain's greatest luxury export since the 1970s.

First Editions are available in three unique colors, Corris Grey, Silicon Silver, or Flux Silver-a special satin finish that will be hand-sprayed at the Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations facility.
