If the Range Rover Evoque is too small and the Range Rover Sport too big, there could still be a Range Rover for you with the release of the 2018 Range Rover Velar.
Underpinning the first-ever Velar is a lightweight and stiff aluminum-intensive body structure, together with double-wishbone front suspension and a multi-link setup at the rear. The wheelbase stretches 113.15 inches and inside you’ll find up to 34.4 cubic feet of storage. The Velar has a very distinct look with pretty details like hidden door handles and, if you like, you can have a blacked out roof.
Don’t worry, The Velar is still a Land Rover, though, and that means it is more than capable to handle the rough stuff. While it may not be on the same level as a Land Rover Discovery, the Velar is available with Land Rover’s top-shelf off-road driving aids.
These include hill descent (Hill Descent Control) and crawl (All Terrain Progress Control) functions as well as Land Rover’s brilliant off-road driving modes selector (Terrain Response 2). The latter optimizes performance on a variety of different surfaces.
The Velar is also equipped with LED headlights, an 8-speed automatic and all-wheel drive as standard. Air suspension and an active locking rear differential are available. The Velar’s interior dash features an uncluttered look with Land Rover’s latest infotainment system which integrates two 10-inch touchscreen displays. It includes all the usual safety features, in addition to six airbags, you’ll find useful electronic driver aids such as automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and various warning systems.
