Enhanced Range Rover Velar: Sophisticated Elegance And Exquisite Details
The New Range Rover Velar is a pure expression of modern luxury, featuring the latest technology, hallmark Range Rover refinement and a dramatic, clean and reductive new design.
A new grille combines with the characteristic floating roof, unbroken waistline and flush deployable door handles that define the world’s most desirable luxury SUV family. New headlights provide a technical, jewel-like appearance and optimized visibility while the exterior is enhanced by a new lower rear bumper and dark accents.
The Range Rover Velar pioneered the Range Rover reductive design philosophy, and it takes this approach to a new level inside. The new single floating 11.4-inch curved glass touchscreen is integrated into the center console, providing immediate and intuitive control of all key vehicle functions1.
A full suite of technologies promotes passenger comfort and wellbeing, making the mid-size luxury SUV even more desirable. The Range Rover Velar also offers a quiet cabin, thanks to refinement technologies including the pioneering Active Road Noise Cancellation8 system.
Clients can choose from Velar P250 S, P250 Dynamic SE, P400 Dynamic SE and P400 Dynamic HSE.
The Range Rover Velar is instantly recognizable as a Range Rover and its sophisticated elegance and dramatic presence remain undiluted. The vehicle pioneered the Range Rover reductive design philosophy and its new grille – alongside the introduction of new headlight design with jewel-like effect Signature Daytime Running Lights – ensure a unified look across the entire family.
At the rear, the powerful overhang provides balance and highlights the imposing length of the Range Rover Velar. Its pronounced kick adds to its muscular stance while a new lower rear bumper enhances its proportions.

The innovative textile has been subjected to rigorous in-house durability testing in the Range Rover materials lab to ensure it delivers customary robustness throughout the lifetime of the vehicle, going through 60,000 cycles of abrasion testing – the equivalent of 10 years of usage – and UV tests capable of simulating three years of unrelenting exposure to the sun in just a month.
Three new leather colorways are introduced: Cloud, Raven Blue and Deep Garnet. These are complemented by a curated choice of details, including new Moonlight Chrome on the steering wheel, center console surrounds, and air vents. Technical Light Anodised or Dark Anodised Aluminium, or tactile Shadow Grey Ash wood veneer trim finishers underline its elegance.
Two new color options join the exterior palette: Metallic Varesine Blue and Premium Metallic Zadar Grey.
New Range Rover Velar is the first to feature the next-generation Pivi Pro7 infotainment. It incorporates controls for all key vehicle functions within the new 11.4-inch curved glass touchscreen1; its clean design appearing as if it is floating.

New Range Rover Velar is also Wi-Fi Enabled with a Data Plan7, ensuring occupants remain entertained and connected. Pivi Pro7 features twin embedded eSIM technology and cloud-based architecture, meaning it provides full access to a range of online apps – including Spotify® and Deezer® – integrated within the infotainment system.
Amazon Alexa3 brings a new level of convenience, providing the ability to control various settings and features using natural voice commands while reducing the potential for distraction1. Alexa is embedded in Pivi Pro7 and can simply be activated by saying “Alexa” or tapping the Alexa button on the touchscreen.
For simple navigation, what3words® is also integrated within Pivi Pro7. The clever mapping technology divides the globe into a grid of 3m x 3m squares, each assigned a unique combination of three random words to provide a what3words® address. With these words drivers can navigate to an accurate and precise location.
Immersive sound and technology
The cosseting cabin of the Range Rover Velar minimizes road noise with pioneering Active Road Noise Cancellation technology8 – ensuring the New Range Rover Velar offers a quiet cabin. This technology senses external frequencies and automatically processes an anti-noise through the vehicle’s audio system, reducing overall interior noise levels.
A range of powerful Meridian audio systems for New Range Rover Velar is led by the optional Meridian™ 3D Surround Sound System, which delivers high-fidelity music playback using up to 17 speakers and 750W of amplifier power for an immersive listening experience.
The New Range Rover Velar provides customary Range Rover refinement in a calm sanctuary, with heightened comfort and optional convenience features that help to promote wellbeing.
The latest Cabin Air Purification Plus system is optional and helps promote occupant wellbeing, aiming to provide superior air quality. CO2 Management and PM2.5 Cabin Air Filtration improve the cabin environment by monitoring interior and exterior air and adjusting accordingly.
