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 D275 improves the options across the range and enables customers 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 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.
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 enables 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 radar-based High-Speed Emergency Braking enables enhanced forward collision detection. The system works between 6-99 mph and is able to detect an imminent collision, alerting the driver and applying the brakes if the driver fails to respond.
As standard, there is a Rear Camera, Front and Rear Parking Aids, Driver Condition Monitor, Emergency Braking and Lane Keep Assist.
The new Range Rover Velar also now has four-corner air suspension now an option on all models with V6 engines, the four-cylinder 240PS diesel and 300PS petrol. This system delivers additional comfort with increased off-road capability.
Customer convenience is also bolstered by bigger 82-litre fuel (up from 63-litres) tank fitted to a number of petrol models, delivering greater range (the models benefiting from the increase in tank capacity are the P250 and P300 2.0-litre petrol Ingenium engine options).
