We’ve given Range Rover #VELAR customers more choice with the addition of new petrol and diesel engine options, 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.

Joining the suite of driver assistance systems, 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 allows 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 10-160km/h and is able to detect an imminent collision, alerting the driver and applying the brakes if the driver fails to respond.

Now fitted as standard, all customers will benefit from a Rear Camera, Front and Rear Parking Aids, Driver Condition Monitor, Emergency Braking and Lane Keep Assist.

Adaptive Dynamics is now optionally available on a number of models throughout the range. By monitoring wheel movement 500 times per second, and body movements 100 times per second, the system continuously varies the damping forces at all four corners of vehicle. This ensures that suspension stiffness is optimised for the driving conditions, improving ride comfort and handling – there’s even a specific calibration for off-road driving.

Velar is offered with coil springs as standard with four-corner air suspension now an option on all models with V6 engines, the four-cylinder 240PS diesel and 300PS petrol. This system delivers truly outstanding comfort and significantly increased off-road capability.
