The New Range Rover Velar

The new Porsche Macan rival that sits between the Evoque and Range Rover Sport is Land Rovers most road-biased model yet

The fourth member of an expanded Range Rover family - The all-new Range Rover Velar, is described by its chief designer as the most “car-like” model the off-road brand has produced.

The Velar, on show at the Geneva motor show, is underpinned by the same technology as the similarly sized Jaguar F-Pace. It will slot between the Evoque and Range Rover Sport in Land Rover’s range. The Velar will be priced from £44,830 and go on sale this summer.

Land Rover’s new Porsche Macan rival is acording to director Gerry McGovern. “a new type of Range Rover for a new type of customer.” The car ushers in a new, more high-tech Land Rover interior design that is expected to be rolled out across the rest of the range as the next generation of Range Rver models are introduced.

The Velar shares its 2874mm wheelbase and aluminium architecture with the F-Pace and it will be built at the Solihull, Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) plant.

Unlike the F-Pace, the Velar is all-wheel drive only and comes with Land Rover’s full suite of off-road technology, including Terrain Response 2. Wade depth is 650mm.  While the model is fully capable for off-roading, it has been developed as the most road-biased model yet in the Range Rover line-up. "As a mid-sized SUV, it has less inertia" said David Doody, vehicle programme director. "It's a lot more agile. The intention is that it's a lot more sporty than a full Range Rover."

Buyers will be able to choose from six engines, each driving through an eight-speed automatic gearbox. There’s a base 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium diesel unit in 178bhp and 237bhp guises. The entry-level petrol engine is a new 2.0-litre Ingenium unit with 247bhp. A more potent 296bhp version of this engine will follow by the end of this year.
