The Ranger Rover Velar 2017 is a latest serve to a Range Rover family. Here’s all we need to know about Jaguar Land Rover’s new SUV, including a Range Rover Velar recover date, specs, features, cost – and what it’s like to drive.

Sports application vehicles (SUVs) are hugely popular, and sojourn one of a fastest flourishing sectors in motoring – along with electric cars. That’s since there’s no necessity of SUVs on a market; in fact, a Jaguar Land Rover portfolio alone now has 9 such vehicles. The latest serve to this choice is a Range Rover Velar, and it’s critical since it ticks an dull box in a line-up.

The Velar is now a initial mid-size Range Rover, stuffing what JLR calls a “white space” between a many smaller Evoque, and a marginally incomparable Range Rover Sport. It’s for people who suffer a sharp Evoque pattern yet still wish a motoring heft we get from a Sport or Range Rover proper. It’s got some decent innards, a beautiful design, and is congested full of tech.

Below, I’ll explain all we need to know about a Range Rover Velar, including 4 reasons since we reckon it’s a one of a best Range Rovers ever. You’ll also find pricing information and some sum about what it’s like to indeed expostulate serve down a page.

Here are 4 ways a Range Rover Velar is a coolest Range Rover yet:

1. Range Rover Velar Design: It’s severely slick

Range Rover Velar Exterior

The strenuous sense we get from a Range Rover Velar – both inside and out – is of minimalism. If Apple designed SUVs, this is substantially what they’d demeanour like.

The Velar’s framework is unequivocally simple, stoical of prosaic panels and pointed lines that give it a some-more gentle, well-developed entrance than a Range Rover Evoque while maintaining a vast highway participation of a Sport. To be exact, a wheelbase – a stretch between the centres of a front and behind wheels – is 2.87m, compared to a Evoque’s 2.66m wheelbase and a Sport’s 2.93m wheelbase. You can also get discretionary 22-inch wheels to serve raise a on-road presence.

There are some classical Jaguar Land Rover motifs on a exterior; a floating roof and clamshell bonnet, with a tapering conformation that pulls a visible weight of a automobile towards a back. It’s customary Range Rover design, yet it’s good to see that a muscular, ready-to-pounce position continues to be a tack even with some-more complicated iterations of a series.

The carp is long, that looks good from a outside, yet can be rather irritating in practice; it partially blocks your brazen perspective when pushing uphill, definition we spasmodic have to rest on drive-cams or endless neck-craning.

Most of a framework (about 80%) is built from aluminium; specifically, this is 6000-series aluminium that offers high-strength, permitting for a rebate in row density from 1.5mm to 1.1mm – presumably yet strength compromise. The roof is also built from lightweight aluminium, helping keep a centre of sobriety low and so improving float and handling.

The automobile is unequivocally flat-looking; in fact, even a doorway handles lay flush with a framework until we press them, call them to slip outwards. This tapered, prosaic pattern has authorised for a drag co-efficient of usually 0.32, that means it’s technically a many aerodynamic Land Rover to date.

Range Rover Velar Interior

The interior of a automobile is similarly reductionist too. Apparently, Jaguar Land Rover’s designers want we to feel like you’re sitting inside a sanctuary, and it’s satisfactory to contend they’ve achieved it.

It’s unequivocally atmospheric inside a Velar, with poignant legroom permitted for both front-seat and rear-seat passengers, and the brunt of the infotainment systems are successfully squeezed into dual touch-screen panels in a centre of a car. Air vents are slender, the “push to start” pitch is tucked (somewhat awkwardly) behind a steering wheel, and a instrument row sits flush with a aspect behind it. It’s all unequivocally iPhone, and it works unequivocally well.

However, this is a Range Rover, so there’s also been copiousness of importance on removing a oppulance feel usually right. This is mostly achieved by reward weave materials and a new “cut diamond” pattern that’s set to seem on destiny JLR vehicles too. The tolerable reward weave used for a chair – offering as an choice to leather – was grown with heading European designers during Kvadrat, and comes in Dapple Grey with a Suedecloth insert in possibly Light Oyster or Ebony.

There are 4 litres of storage space in a executive cubby, 7.5 litres of space in a glovebox (available with discretionary cooling), and stowage compartments designed to accommodate 750ml drinks bottles in a reduce doorway casings. For luggage, we get an considerable 632 litres of space, yet this can be stretched to 1,731 litres by folding a behind seats prosaic – you’ll get a space of 1,795mm (long) x 1,274mm (wide).

All-in-all, sitting in a Range Rover Velar feels unequivocally zen, that is arrange of what we pattern from such a bumbling automobile – box, ticked.

2. Range Rover Velar Specs: Acceleration, fuel consumption and tip speed

There are 6 core variants of a Range Rover Velar, 3 of that are diesel and 3 petrol. They all change significantly in terms of automotive heft, so I’ll run by a many elementary chronicle and a many absolute indication to give we a improved thought of the car’s capability range. The prolonged and brief of it, however, is that a reward Velar offers sufficient oomph for Range Rover fans.

The slightest grievous indication is a 2.0L D180, that has a four-cylinder 16-valve 2-litre engine. With this model, JLR reckons you’ll manage 0 – 60mph in a comparatively critical 8.4 seconds. For comparison, even a top-spec Nissan Qashqai usually manages in 9.1 seconds – nonetheless it’s a satisfactory strike cheaper to boot.

The tip speed of a cheapest Range Rover Velar is usually 130mph, that isn’t utterly considerable given you’ll be forking out over £40,000 for a oppulance of sitting in one. Perhaps some-more annoyingly, this tip speed drops to 120mph if we opt for a elementary 18-inch wheels. Part of a problem is that a Velar is a mid-size SUV, and is so heavy. For instance, the lightest indication is still a vast 1,804kg – distant aloft than a 1,621kg Range Rover Evoque, by comparison.

Things urge when we start forking out money for a better-equipped Velar though. If you’re meddlesome in removing a top-spec 3.0L P380 V6 petrol variant, we can pattern a distant nippier 0 – 60mph time of usually 5.3 seconds. That’s approach faster than a 7.3 seconds it’ll take a high-end Evoque to manage a same acceleration, yet not utterly as nippy as a 4.7 seconds a Range Rover Sport can achieve.

With a best model, you’ll also get 450Nm (that’s 332lb ft) of torque during between 3,500 and 5,000 RPM, and a limit of 380PS (280kW) of energy during 6,500 RPM.

And in these discouraging mercantile times, a other metric that’s critical is fuel consumption. The some-more absolute a engine, a quicker your miles-per-gallon drops off unfortunately. So a many fit indication (by far) is a Ingenium D180 AWD Automatic, that achieves 45.6mpg in an civic setting, and rises to 57.7mpg in an extra-urban environment.

The total mpg is 52.5mpg, that is about 30mpg reduction than you’d pattern from a diesel Renault Clio and about a same as a diesel Land Rover Discovery Sport. The point, as always, is that SUVs aren’t accurately economical, so journey possibly we unequivocally need such a bumbling engine if you’re usually going to be pushing turn a precinct of Kensington and Chelsea.

3. Range Rover Velar: It looks nice, yet can it go off-road too

Unlike many of a new, cheaper entrants into a SUV market, Jaguar Land Rover has done a accordant bid to safeguard that Range Rovers can still go off-road yet giving adult during a steer of a initial pebble on a nation track.

A double-wishbone front cessation complement is formed on sports automobile designs, and allows for heightened rigidity – a bonus for steering and doing in formidable positions. The aluminium body, as mentioned previously, is good for saving weight, so a Velar is surprisingly nippy over sand and mud.

The cessation systems are, overall, sincerely impressive, enabling pushing on a following gradients:

  • Approach angle: 28.89 degrees
  • Breakover angle: 23.5 degrees
  • Departure angle: 29.5 degrees

It’s also value observant that a cessation can lift the main physique of a automobile upwards into an off-road position, safeguarding a undercarriage from projecting obstacles. This also means that a Velar offers a unequivocally considerable limit wading abyss of 650mm, and a rise belligerent clearway of 251mm.

There are mixed different off-road pushing modes accessible, aside from a common ‘Auto’, ‘Comfort’, and ‘Dynamic’. Probably a many useful is ‘Grass, Gravel, and Snow’, nonetheless ‘Mud and Ruts’ will find good use from anyone vital on a stormy mountainside. There’s also Adaptive Dynamics, that monitors a circle transformation 500 times any second and varies a damping army during all 4 corners of a vehicle, ensuring “optimised cessation stiffness” as JLR calls it.

And while not particularly an off-road capability, it’s value mentioning during this indicate that all models are able of towing a limit weight of during slightest 2,400kg – but this rises to 2,500kg on name versions of the Velar.

4. Range Rover Velar Features: The many hi-tech Range Rover yet

For years, automakers have been battling it out in terms of in-car tech, and Jaguar Land Rover positively hasn’t skimped with a latest Range Rover Velar.

For a start, there’s a far-reaching array of driver-assistance systems possibly propitious as standard, or offering as an discretionary extra. Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) is one of a some-more useful assistance systems, and utilises a forward-facing stereo camera in a windscreen to guard a highway in front of a vehicle. If it detects an approaching collision, visible and heard warnings are launched and full braking is triggered automatically.

This stereo camera is also used for both a Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Lane Keep Assist (LKA) functions. The camera will guard highway markings – as good as your use of indicators – to try and forestall we from flapping out of your lane. The LDW will emanate a haptic warning by a steering wheel, while a LKA will indeed request counter-steering to vigour a automobile inside a lane.

But it gets even some-more wacky: there’s a complement called Driver Condition Monitoring that uses steering, throttle, and stop inputs – as good as line depart – to establish if you’re tired. If it reckons we need a kip, a coffee crater pitch will uncover adult in a instrument cluster to inspire we to possibly get some nap or chuck behind a few espressos.

Other cool features including a heads-up arrangement for a motorist that shows speed (and internal speed limits), adaptive journey control, and parking support systems.

The infotainment complement in a automobile is likewise cool, comprising of dual high-definition touchscreens regulating JLR’s new Touch Pro Duo software. There are also rotary dials for a good haptic feel, any of that has a built-in arrangement inside them – and a 5-inch arrangement between them. These infotainment systems can be customised to fit your needs and, nonetheless they take some removing used to, offer an effective approach to conduct your in-car tech.

As expect, Jaguar has propitious a Range Rover Velar out with Meridian orator systems, with 17- and 23-speaker options available. There are dual USB ports in a front and 3 12V energy sockets via a vehicle, nonetheless we can supplement a serve 12V hollow to a front and dual some-more USB ports in a behind for an discretionary fee. And a front seats have their possess 20-way composition and heating, cooling and massage functions.

Range Rover Velar Preview: What is it like to drive?

I had a possibility to spend dual days pushing a Range Rover Velar in Norway opposite both on-road and off-road surfaces. It’s not a outrageous volume of time, yet I’ve been left with some prevalent thoughts about a car.

For a start, it’s unequivocally gorgeous, and a minimalist pattern creates it – during slightest in my opinion – a many appealing Range Rover permitted right now. The Evoque’s pattern is starting to feel a small tired, and a Range Rover Sport does small to mount out from a crowd, yet a Velar is positively a head-turner – and was unequivocally renouned among a Norway locals.

The interior of a automobile is also a genuine work of art, with a vast and appealing infotainment system, atmospheric seating arrangements, and plenty of options to urge comfort. The materials used all feel unequivocally premium, and there’s no mistaking a fact you’re sitting in a oppulance Range Rover.

As distant as pushing on tarmac goes, there’s not many to say. The whole indicate of an SUV is that a float is unequivocally well-spoken on normal roads, and a Velar glides along as expected. It felt pretty energetic on a road, that is expected a outcome of a lightweight framework and rarely customisable float options, and there was sufficient responsiveness in a stifle and braking systems.

Off-road, a Velar shined many more. Setting a automobile to ‘Muds and Ruts’ and lifting a cessation tallness authorised me to span unequivocally steep, damp, hilly mountainsides and fast-flowing streams with no bother. Cruise control systems and motorist support cameras – in partnership with a off-road, all-terrain mode – meant that descending fast opposite severely severe turf was intensely simple.

Overall, I’m assured that a Velar is going to fast turn one of a many renouned Range Rover models. Like a Evoque, it offers a standout design, yet we feel many some-more as yet you’re pushing a correct SUV. The latter perk is going to turn increasingly profitable to automobile buyers as some-more and some-more low-grade SUVs inundate a marketplace in a entrance years. Of all a Range Rover models, we daresay a Velar is a many fun and well-rounded.
