Award-winning Range Rover Velar
Land Rover has announced a host of enhancements to the award-winning Range Rover Velar including a broader engine choice, the latest intelligent safety technology and more features such as air suspension and adaptive dynamics now available as options.
The luxury SUV was crowned World Car Design of the Year at the recent World Car Awards.
The Velar now has a D275 engine option, a 275PS 3.0-litre V6 diesel, producing 625Nm of torque. The new D275 enhances the options across the range and enables customers the flexibility to specify the perfect car for them.
Finbar McFall, global product marketing director, Jaguar Land Rover, said: “We’ve given Range Rover Velar customers more choice with the addition of a new diesel engine option, even more scope for personalisation and the latest safety technology. Creating the perfect Range Rover Velar is now easier than ever.”
For the 2019 model year, customers have a greater breadth of choice when specifying their vehicle. This includes the Kvadrat premium textile seat available more widely across the range.
Joining the suite of driver assistance systems, Adaptive Cruise Control with Steering Assist operates between 0-180km/h and uses the existing Adaptive Cruise Control functionality with Lane Centring to steer the vehicle within its lane as it maintains a set distance from the vehicle in front.
Other features include Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go that allows the driver to follow a vehicle to a smooth stop and resume from stationary when the driver prompts the system by tapping the accelerator pedal.
The Velar’s two petrol engine options are also now equipped with particulate filters to make them even cleaner. The highly efficient, close-coupled filters are neatly integrated into the after treatment system and trap ultrafine particles as the exhaust gas passes through them. Under normal driving conditions, the trapped particles will be oxidised into CO2 and the filter regenerated whenever the driver lifts off the accelerator.
