Range Rover Velar, an eye-catching and stylish SUV with Robust Engines

While expanding its business, Land Rover went on to introduce vehicles to plug the gaps in the market. There was a considerable demand for a vehicle that was above the capabilities of a Range Rover Evoque and was priced under the price tag of a very capable yet a little old-fashioned Range Rover Sport. Land Rover went to lengths to ensure that they provide a 4 WD SUV that drives and handles like a car.

An aluminium monocoque body means more precision and control in handling the vehicle and Range Rover Velar uses the same platform that is being used in Jaguar XE and Jaguar XF. This is the most road-focused vehicle ever built by Land Rover. The amazing thing is that it has not lost any off-road capabilities and is excellent at dealing with difficult terrain with the help of mechanical and technological superiority.

Technologically Advanced Engines

Range Rover Velar owes a lot of its success to the robust and meticulously made diesel and petrol engines that powered them for years. Land Rover Range Rover Velar was introduced in 2017 and a range of engines was introduced.

Stunning Exterior

Velar was introduced in 2018 and is responsible for modernizing the style language of the Land Rover to a whole new level. Its exterior styling was so good that it was later implemented on most of the Range Rover models and variants.

Its body gives an impression of a classy and minimal yet flowing and elegant style. Aerodynamic shape, reclining roofline, and pinched tail hint at the performance that is in the reserves.

Its side profile consists of clean minimal lines and the front is studded with beautiful headlights and strong looking grill with air vents adding some drama to the style language. The roof is finished with black glass finishing. The tail is beautifully finished with striking tail lights and a pinched tail.

Rich and Elegant Interior

The real beauty of the Land Rover interiors is that it does not confuse you with a clutter of dials, knobs and buttons and keeps the styling minimal. The interior of the Range Rover Velar is a brilliant place to be at. The ambience is spectacular and the materials look and feel is exquisite.

The dashboard is a delight for minimalism fans as they have kept it clean and used just a few dials and buttons. Most of the functionality is dependent on the infotainment screen and that helps lower the cluster. There are many controls right on the steering wheel that makes a driver’s life easy.

Another advantage of the minimalistic approach is that you get plenty of space in the cabin. You are provided with more than enough headroom and legroom for both driver and passengers. If you are going for a long commute, there is plenty of space for your extended luggage in the boot as well.

Final Verdict
