New model arrives in September and it already has a price
The fourth model from Range Rover, the Velar arrives in September. Designed to bridge the gap between the Range Rover Evoque and the Range Rover Sport, the Velar promises “levels of luxury, refinement and capacities outside of the road never before seen from the medium SUV”.
The origin of the name goes back to the first prototypes of the original Range Rover, dating from the 1960s. It is 4.8 meters long, that is, more compact than the Porsche Macan, BMW X4 and Mercedes GLC. It is 24 centimetres shorter than its brother Range Rover Sport, although, it only loses 5cm distance between axes (2,87 m), like the Mercedes GLC and slightly superior to the BMW X4 and the Porsche Macan.
The new SUV sports softer lines than the other Range Rovers, a more sportive silhouette, a rear in coupe format, chrome details and panoramic roof. The infotainment has two screens, following the orientation of the Jaguar I-Pace concept.
It will be available with six motors, including the Diesel 2.0 of 180cv and 240cv, besides a 3.0 V6 of 300cv. The petrol range counts with the 2.0 of 250cv and the 3.0 V6 Supercharged of 380cv. All the motors are associated with an automatic box with eight speeds and four wheels integral traction.
It possesses a broad range of advanced security systems, such as the Autonomous Emergency Brake with detection of pedestrians, Detection of Vehicles Reversing and the Driver Condition Monitor.
The main models of the range, Velar and Velar R-Dynamic, are available in the Standard Version S, SE and HSE. The most exclusive version of the Velar will be the First Edition, that will be available in the first commercial year.
