Driven: 2018 Range Rover Velar

Driven: 2018 Range Rover Velar

We recently hit the road from Palm Springs to test drive Land Rover’s new mid-size SUV. We were duly impressed with the styling, handling, and comfort of the Velar, which offers a smooth ride, slick new tech, off-road capabilities, and much more. Read our full review on 95octane.

Driven: 2018 Range Rover VelarThe Range Rover Velar seats five adults comfortably, and falls between the Evoque and the Range Rover Sport in the Land Rover lineup.

Driven: 2018 Range Rover VelarIt might look sexy and sleek, but the Velar is 100% Land Rover, and fully capable of driving off-road, crawling through dirt, mud, ruts, and over rocks.

Driven: 2018 Range Rover VelarThe Velar's impressive all-wheel drive system can send 100% of power to the front or rear wheels, ensuring you've got traction where you need it. An adaptive damping system dynamically adjusts suspension stiffness up to 500 times per second.

Driven: 2018 Range Rover VelarThere are three engines available in the US, a 180hp turbodiesel with 317 lb-ft. of torque, a 247 hp turbo 4 with 269 lb-ft. of torque, and a powerful 380 hp supercharged V6 with 332 lb-ft of torque. With that engine, the Velar launches from 0-to-60 in just 5.3 seconds.

Driven: 2018 Range Rover VelarThere's plenty of cargo space inside the Velar too - with up to 70.1 cubic feet when the rear seat is folded down. That's even more than the full-size Range Rover.

Driven: 2018 Range Rover VelarOn profile, the Velar really looks like a show car, with its clean, dynamic body lines, sloped roof, fold-flat door handles, and wheels up to 22".

Driven: 2018 Range Rover VelarThe interior of the Velar is comfortable, luxurious, and quiet, and comes in premium materials like leather, Suedecloth, and a sustainable, though unpronounceable wool fabric called Kvadrat.

Driven: 2018 Range Rover VelarOne of the slickest bits of tech in the Velar is the secondary display in the center console, which provides access to climate and vehicle dynamics controls using a touchscreen and contextual "smart" dials.

Driven: 2018 Range Rover VelarAmong the cool technology available in the Velar is a 12.3" digital dashboard, which can even display navigation maps. A bright, full-color HUD is also available.

Driven: 2018 Range Rover VelarOffering style and sophistication, performance and comfort, the latest technology and off-road capability, the Range Rover Velar is a worthy addition to the iconic Land Rover line.
