Now ladies within the SUV Segment I've driven some really nice cars, but shuuuuuuu the Velar is currently leading in this segment, it is luxury personified!
Arguably the most stylish SUV on the market today, the 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar is also one of the most well-rounded models on the market.
In 1970 Land Rover launched the original Range Rover. Almost half a century later that spirit of innovation continues with the introduction of the fourth member of the Range Rover family, to be unveiled on March 1, 2017. Elegant simplicity, a visually reductive approach and all-new consumer technologies are the hallmarks of the new Range Rover Velar. Land Rover Chief Design Officer, Gerry McGovern, said: “We call the Velar the avant-garde Range Rover. It brings a new dimension of glamour, modernity and elegance to the brand. The Range Rover Velar changes everything.” Refined for every occasion and for various terrains, the Range Rover Velar uses unique sustainable materials and advanced engineering to continue Land Rover’s drive to go Above and Beyond. The origin of the Velar name (pronounced vel-ar) dates back to the first Range Rover prototypes of the Sixties: the pioneers of the luxury SUV landscape.
Range Rover offers the Velar in four trims and we advise side-stepping the (unnamed) entry-level model in favour of at least S or SE trim, as these bring leather seats and sat nav. which seems something of a tipping point in terms of value-for-money.
With 1385 litres of space, yes 1385 litres halala! This seating configuration allows you to carry plenty of luggage whilst still having room for two passengers, this is a poshglam dream some of our friends in this category look big from the outside, but leave you disappointed once you get inside! That was my first impression of this car- All of the space! I don't necessarily need space but "too much space" said no one ever!
Stand out features
Coming home from a long day of work the range of seats available are powered by 8, 20, 18 and 20-way movement with a variety of functionalities such as memory, massage, heating and cooling front seats make for a driving dream, a massage at the end of a long day? yes please! Comfort is paramount in the Velar!
Climate control with two-zone temperature control allows you to set separate temperatures for the driver and front passenger areas of Range Rover Velar, this means me and my husband don't have to fight about the car temperature as we always do, already making the drive a good one, that doesn't start with the hot or cold argument!
Range Rover Velar's elegant proportions and unmistakable design cues create a vehicle that without a fail demands attention and gets it!Heightened luxury and enhanced technology intensifying Range Rover Velar's strong allure.
There's a little diamond button on the steering wheel that can be assigned not one but two frequently used functions. Options include cancel nav guidance, next audio source, audio mute, audio play/pause, access phone voicemail, microphone-mute, telephone hold, auto-reject a call, upper-screen off, and traffic alerts, which makes operating the entertainment system a breeze.
We also got to take this beauty on a fabulous off road luxury bush break and she didn't let me down once! A beauty with brains! Fact is, there are technological assists for just about every aspect of off-roading, including All-Terrain Progress Control (think: Low-speed off-road cruise control), as well as a particularly helpful 360-degree, multi-angle camera system that shows what's directly ahead of the vehicle when you're climbing an obstacle and all you see ahead is hood and sky. it really offers a luxurious driving experience.
