First Look On The 2018 Range Rover Velar Luxury SUV
Jaguar Land Rover unveiled tonight its latest product, the 2018 Range Rover Velar at the Design Museum in London. The announcement was made ahead of the Geneva Motor Show that will be held next week. Details on the new Luxury SUV kept heavily guarded, but rumors claimed that the Range Rover Velar will slot in between the smaller Evoque and the Range Rover Sport to complete the Range Rover lineup.
Range Rover Velar Luxury SUV Construction
The body of the 2018 Velar mid-size luxury SUV is similar as a Range Rover, but with a sportier look because of its lowered roof as well as the extended hood and side vents. The LED headlights of the vehicle require less height, making them the on of the slimmest headlights on any production that Land Rover had. It also features Land Rover's first delicate deployable door handles, which flattens with the doors when not in use. These features add up to an almost brilliant, attractive SUV and the most aerodynamic designed by Land Rover's design director Gerry McGovern.
As reported by Forbes, the term Velar comes from the Italian word "velare" which means to veil and it happens to be the codename for the 1969 Range Rover prototype. However, the 2018 Velar is based on the aluminum-intensive architecture of the company to be lightweight yet rigid. As of today, no official EPA mileage figures are available, but it promises great performance. “It will be a great vehicle to drive,” said McGovern.
Range Rover Velar Luxury SUV Inside
According to Edmunds, one of the many features that the firm can boast on the Range Rover Velar is its touchscreen InControl infotainment system. It features two 10-inch HD screens integrated seamlessly surfaces so the driver gets to choose what they want to see. While driving the Range Rover Velar, the bottom part of the screen will control climate, seat, and settings, while the upper part controls navigation, phone, and media.
A special First Edition will also be launched with limited to 500 units only. The First Edition Range Rover Velar comes exclusively with the V6 engine and incorporates a host of upgrades. These updates include a two-tone leather interior and 1,600-watt sound system. While the visual upgrades comprise copper weave carbon-fiber trim, an optional satin silver paint finish, and 22-inch wheels. The Range Rover Velar with the 2.0-liter gasoline engine costs $50,895 whereas the First Edition will be priced at $90,195.
