About Land Rover Range Rover Velar
After a few leaked pictures and more than a few teasers, the newest member of the Range Rover family has officially been unveiled. The new Velar (which means ‘To Veil’ or ‘To Cover’) is the forth SUV in the Range Rover family and sits snugly in between the Range Rover Evoque and the Range Rover Sport.
Land Rover Range Rover Velar Preview
The new Range Rover Velar is the fourth car in the Range Rover family and possibly one of the most stunning SUVs in the world today. We recently got you the exclusive news about how the Velar, which was originally supposed to come to India next year would be launched around January 2018 instead and now we have even more confirmed information. Bookings for the Range Rover Velar have already opened. The new Range Rover Velar will get both petrol and diesel engines at the time of launch too.
Range Rover Velar Exterior Design:
Apart from being sporty and discreetly muscular, the Velar is also very efficient with its design with a drag co-efficient of only 0.32 which makes it the most aerodynamic Land Rover ever produced. The floating roof design that Land Rover has pioneered and the clamshell bonnet both make an obvious appearance on the Velar too. Velar gets a set of 22-inch wheels on the top-end version, which perfectly fills up the large wheel arches.
Range Rover Velar Engine Specifications:
The diesel engine will be available in two power specs. The more powerful version will be a 3-litre V6 engine that makes 296 bhp of peak power and impressive 700Nm of peak torque! The lower powered diesel will most likely be the most popular version of the Velar in India and will be badged D180. The engine is a 2-litre 4-cylinder Ingenium unit that makes 177 bhp and 430 Nm of peak power. Both engines will be mated to an eight speed gearbox and all-wheel-drive.
The Range Rover will only have one petrol engine option for Indian buyers. The petrol engine will also be a 2-litre motor from the same Ingenium family as the diesel. The engine, badged P250 makes 246 bhp and 265 Nm of torque. Just like the diesel, the petrol too will get an 8-speed gearbox and all-wheel-drive as standard kit.
