The latest Range Rover is called Velar and it will hit the showrooms later this year. The vehicle features a rather compelling, stand out design. Some owners will, for example, love the segment-first flush deployable door handles – even though this kinda runs into the whole segment that the Tesla Model X is part of. But, I digress.
The vehicle is constructed from a lightweight and stiff aluminum-intensive body structure. In turn, this saves weight, consequently improving it’s performance as well – when compared to traditional steel construction. The Range Rover Velar boasts a 113.15 in. wheelbase and intelligently-designed interior deliver an exceptionally large 34.4 cu ft luggage compartment.
The Velar is powered by a variety of engines. Three available powertrains include a responsive 180HP 2.0-liter Ingenium diesel 4-cylinder, a 247HP 2.0-liter gas Ingenium 4-cylinder and a potent 380HP supercharged 3.0-liter gas V6 engine. Each engine is mated to an 8-speed ZF transmission with all-wheel drive standard.
Naturally, a full and rather capable all-wheel drive system, including the Intelligent Driveline Dynamics and an optional active locking rear differential (available on six-cylinder derivatives only) is available, delivering maximum driver engagement on-road and ensure Velar leads its segment in all-terrain capability. Furthermore, the traction technologies include Terrain Response®, All Terrain Progress Control, Low Traction Launch, Hill Descent Control(HDC®) and Gradient Release Control are available to maximize power/traction in different surfaces as well.
A full suite of available advanced drivers assistance systems including Autonomous Emergency Braking with pedestrian detection, Reverse Traffic Detection, and Driver Condition Monitoring is also part of the package, giving more safety & comfort to the driver as well. The vehicle will also see debut of a new, state-of-the-art, Land Rover InControl® infotainment system, Touch Pro Duo, featuring two high-definition 10-inch touchscreens for improved functionality and intuitive operation.
