Land Rover reveals new mid-sized Range Rover Velar



Land Rover has pulled the covers off its all-new Range Rover Velar, which is due to go on sale in the UK this summer.

The new SUV is the fourth vehicle to join the Range Rover line-up and will sit between the baby Evoque and larger Sport models.

The British manufacturer claims that the Velar will bring un-paralleled levels of luxury, refinement and off-road capability to the mid-size SUV segment.

Jaguar Land Rover UK managing director Jeremy Hicks said: "The new Range Rover Velar is a stunning addition to the Range Rover family. It enhances a model line-up that originally defined the luxury SUV segment and continues to do so.

"Velar brings increased choice to new and existing customers in a growing SUV market. It leads the way in terms of design, usable technology, new materials and of course Land Rover's legendary go-anywhere, do-anything capability.

"The whole team is enormously excited about bringing the new Range Rover Velar to customers across the UK."

The Velar will be available with a selection of six petrol and diesel powertrains, all of which are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission manufactured by German company ZF.

The diesel engine line-up consists of two four-cylinder units that produce 178bhp and 237bhp, with the less-powerful engine emitting 142 grams of CO2 per kilometre. A V6 diesel will also be available, boasting an impressive 700Nm of torque with CO2 emissions of 167g/km.

As far as petrol engines go, the Range Rover Velar will be available with a 247bhp four-cylinder unit, as well as a 378bhp supercharged V6. A 296bhp four-cylinder petrol will also join the line-up at a later date.

The Range Rover Velar will cost from £44,830 when it goes on sale this summer.
