About the Range Rover Velar

Located above the Range Rover Evoque and below the Range Rover Sport, the Velar takes glamour, elegance, and contemporary design to astounding new heights. True to the storied off-road heritage of Range Rover, the Velar can be equipped with your choice of a lightweight aluminum 4-cylinder, or sophisticated inline-6 mild-hybrid engine paired with an advanced 8-speed automatic transmission. Signature design attributes found on the exterior include flush deployable door handles, an integrated rear spoiler, and a foil-stamped front grille. An Electronic Air Suspension allows an accessible height for easy entry and the powered gesture tailgate allows for quick loading with hands-free access. Inside the cabin, both drivers and passengers will discover signature interior ambiance through available reclining rear seats, four-zone climate control, and two optional 8-inch Rear Seat Entertainment screens.

What The Critics Say

“Pretty can actually be practical. The Velar’s generally boxy shape and visually pleasing rear overhang—bodywork that extends behind the rear wheels—combine to swallow more carry-on suitcases than its immediate competitors with its rear seats up or folded. We fit 10 of our carry-on suitcases behind the rear seats and 23 with all seats folded.”
— Car and Driver

“Overall, the two-row Land Rover Range Rover Velar is a good SUV. It has one of the best interiors in our luxury midsize SUV class, with sumptuous materials, comfortable seats, and a cutting-edge infotainment system. Other hallmarks of the Velar are its refined, lively engines; superb fuel economy ratings; and smooth ride.”

What’s New for 2023

For 2023, the proven Range Rover Velar receives a new trim level. Now topping the Velar range, the exclusive HST grade is powered by the upgraded 395-horsepower 3.0L P400 i6 MHEV powertrain and also benefits from both an adjustable air suspension and adaptive damper system. HST variants are also recognizable for their exclusive Arroios Grey exterior paint and stylish 21-inch black alloy wheels. Aside from the arrival of this new model, the Range Rover Velar soldiers on unchanged from last year.
