Jaguar Land Rover has unveiled its latest addition to the Range Rover family, the New Range Rover Velar. The mid-size luxury SUV promises to deliver a modern luxury experience with a clean, reductive design and advanced technology features.
The exterior of the Range Rover Velar features a new grille, Pixel LED headlights, and dark accents to enhance its sophisticated appearance. The design is further complemented by a powerful overhang, pronounced kick and a new lower rear bumper that features hidden tailpipes.
Inside the Range Rover Velar, passengers are treated to an elegant and reductive cabin that showcases outstanding craftsmanship and new materials. The centerpiece of the cabin is the latest evolution of the Pivi Pro infotainment system, which features a single floating 11.4-inch curved glass interface that is ergonomically positioned to reduce reflections and minimize distractions. Clients have the option of a leather-free cabin, with a range of new seat designs and materials that combine wool from Danish textile experts Kvadrat with Ultrafabrics polyurethane textile inserts.
The Range Rover Velar is equipped with a range of technologies that promote passenger comfort and wellbeing. The SUV promises to be the quietest in its class for road noise, thanks to refinement technologies including the Active Road Noise Cancellation system. The Velar is also available as a plug-in electric hybrid that delivers a pure-electric driving range of up to 69km and features mild hybrid technology.
In terms of connectivity, the Range Rover Velar features the next-generation Pivi Pro infotainment system, which provides immediate and intuitive control of all key vehicle functions. Drivers are presented with a Pre-Drive mode that offers a simplified interface for quick and easy navigation to the most frequently used features.
