The Range Rover Velar, the fourth SUV in the popular Range Rover family will be launched in India in November this year. Velar will be placed between the Evoque and Range Rover Sport. Velar was showcased earlier this year in March and it promises new “levels of luxury, refinement and all-terrain capability”.
Velar is defined by a visually reductive approach and meticulous attention to every detail. It will be competing with Audi Q7, BMW X5, Porsche Macan, Jaguar F-Pace and Volvo XC90. The beautiful Range Rover Velar has a balanced design that is further complemented by its powerful proportions and generous wheelbase that not only provides a spacious interior but also contributes to the overall charm of the car. Other than its attractive design, the SUV also has a number of advanced technologies like the super-slim matrix-laser LED headlights and Touch Pro Duo infotainment system featuring two high-definition 10-inch touchscreens among others.
Land Rover also provides a number of safety provisions on the new Velar including 6 airbags, and a suite of advanced driver assistance systems including Autonomous Emergency Braking with pedestrian detection, Adaptive Cruise Control with Queue Assist (standard on HSE) and an Adaptive Speed Limiter. However, some of these features might be missing in the Indian version due to rules and regulations.
It will be available in both petrol and diesel engine options globally. The list of Velar’s petrol engine options includes the 2-litre Ingenuium in two states of tune and a 3-litre supercharged V6. The list of the SUV’s diesel engine options also comprises the 2-litre Ingenuium in two states of tune and a 3-litre V6.
