Check out the features of the New 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar
After some serious Research and discovery of a balanced integration of cutting edge technologies to take the comfort and ease of driving to an all new level, the Land Rover Automobile company has come up with the New 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar which is a millennium piece of elegance, torque and comfort on the road. Check out the features of the Super machine;
Acceleration and Power
The Velar comes standard with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that cranks out 247 horsepower. It's one of the most fuel-efficient engines in the class, with Land Rover estimating fuel economy at 21 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway (the EPA has not released gas mileage estimates on the Velar). The polished eight-speed automatic transmission is the only gearbox available.
Land Rover offers two upgraded engines. Available in select models is a 180-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter diesel engine that gets 26 mpg city/30 mpg highway. Spirited drivers will want to spring for the supercharged 3.0-liter V6. This 380-horsepower engine accelerates the Velar with authority, reaching 60 mph in 5.3 seconds. Still, this V6 isn't as meaty as the V8 under the hood of the Porsche Cayenne Turbo, to the dismay of performance junkies. Fuel economy for the V6 engine is predicted to be 18 mpg city/24 mpg highway.
Handling and Braking
Every Range Rover Velar is outfitted with all-wheel drive and the Terrain Response system (with Eco, Comfort, Grass-Gravel-Snow, Mud-Ruts, Sand, and Dynamic drive modes). Also standard is a rapidly adjusting Adaptive Dynamics suspension system and torque vectoring, which add stability when cornering. The Velar mimics the quiet, soft ride of a luxury vehicle. Though it handles corners with minimal body lean, this SUV focuses on comfort, with few athletic tendencies.
The five-seat Range Rover Velar comes standard with synthetic leather and suede seats, 10-way-power adjustable front seats, a leather steering wheel, and 40/20/40-split-folding rear seats. Upgrades include perforated, grained leather seats, a premium textile upholstery (a wool blend), and 20-way power-adjustable front seats with massage, heat, and ventilation.
For child safety seats, the back seat comes with two sets of lower anchors and three tether anchors.
The cabin feels airy and spacious. There's plenty of room to stretch out in either row, and the cushions offer all-day comfort.
The standard Touch Pro Duo infotainment system features two 10-inch touch screens, Bluetooth, eight-speakers, voice commands, two USB ports, and smart phone integration via InControl Apps. Dual-zone climate control, a panoramic sunroof, ambient lighting, push-button start, a proximity key, a rear view camera, rear parking sensors, autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning, and rain-sensing windshield wipers are also standard.
Available interior features include an 11-speaker Meridian sound system, a 17-speaker Meridian surround-sound system, navigation, a Wi-Fi hot spot that can connect up to eight devices, an interactive driver display, an activity key (which locks the car using a wearable, waterproof wristband), and two USB ports in the second row.
Available driver assistance features include automatic high beams, driver drowsiness monitoring, rear cross traffic monitoring, traffic sign recognition with adaptive speed limiter, blind spot monitoring, active park assist for parallel and perpendicular parking, active blind spot assist, lane keep assist, a 360-degree camera system, a head-up display, and adaptive cruise control with stop-start functionality and intelligent emergency braking.
The Velar marks the debut of Land Rover's new Touch Pro Duo infotainment interface. Test drivers say it's more intuitive and responsive than Land Rover's InControl interface and like the two-screen arrangement.
When it comes to loading up the back, the Velar can carry more stuff than most other luxury SUVs this size. It has 34.4 cubic feet behind the seats, and you can expand this to 70.1 cubic feet by laying down the split rear seat. A hands-free power liftgate is available.
Land Rover has a peculiar approach when distinguishing between configurations, separating trim levels first by model and then by specification packages. Every model has seating for five and all-wheel drive, and you can select from among three engines, depending on the specification package. The base model is the Velar, which comes as the Velar, Velar S, and Velar SE. The Velar R-Dynamic has distinctive styling and is available in SE and HSE specification packages. The top-of-the-line model is the Velar First Edition.
The base Velar tenders a good value with its lengthy list of posh features. It's a good pick if you want to keep your costs in the $50,000 range. For more power than the standard turbocharged four-cylinder can supply, we recommend starting with the Velar S. You can upgrade to either the supercharged V6 or turbodiesel while enjoying luxuries like perforated leather seats and an alluring Meridian sound system.
