Introduced in 2018, the Land Rover Range Rover Velar is part of the British brand’s attempt to appeal to offer something for everyone in the luxury SUV market. Despite its posh styling, the Velar is the least-expensive mid-size model in Land Rover’s varied Range Rover lineup.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
There are no notable changes to the Velar for 2022.
Land Rover offers the Velar in P250 S, P340 S, P340 R-Dynamic S and P400 R-Dynamic HSE configurations. The P250 S uses a 2.0L turbo four-cylinder engine; P340 models get a mild hybrid 3.0L turbo six-cylinder; and P400 uses a more potent version of the turbo six-cylinder. All powertrains include an eight-speed transmission and four-wheel drive.
The Velar’s base spec comes with rain-sensing wipers, heated/power-folding side mirrors with driver’s auto dimming, a power tailgate, auto-levelling LED headlights, 19-inch wheels, a power-adjustable heated steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, two-zone A/C, and 14-way power front seats.
Safety kit includes front and rear parking sensors, lane keep assist, rear traffic monitor, traffic sign recognition, blind spot assist, automatic high beams, and an adaptive speed limiter.
R-Dynamic trim adds larger brakes, and adaptive suspension. R-Dynamic HSE gains 21-inch wheels, a hands-free tailgate, and premium front seats.
The Velar’s hot climate package adds four-zone A/C and a cooled glove box. A convenience package option enhances lower-spec models with a hands-free tailgate, remote rear seatback releases, and a wearable key. If you want to add off-road capability, get the dynamic handling package.
Land Rover has only published fuel consumption estimates for the P250 four-cylinder engine, which is rated at 11.5/9.0 L/100 km (city/highway).
