Land Rover has announced updates to the Ranger Rover Velar line-up ahead of an Australian arrival in March 2021.
Priced from $87,000 plus on-road costs, the MY21 Velar gets new powertrains, addition tech and revised styling.
As is now the norm across the Jaguar Land Rover portfolio, the Velar range has been pared back and now consists of five models spread across S, SE and HSE trim levels.
Like the recently updated Defender, the P400 3.0-litre straight-six Ingenium engine augmented by 48-volt mild-hybrid technology is now available in the SE and HSE variants. It produces 294kW of power and 550Nm. Drive goes to all four corners through an eight-speed automatic transmission.
When equipped with the P400 engine, Land Rover says the Velar can sprint from 0-100km/h in 5.5 seconds.
The other new engine is the D200 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel Ingenium unit that’s also supplemented with a 48V mild-hybrid system. It offers 147kW of power and 500Nm of torque.
The P250 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine producing 184kW of power and 365Nm of torque is carried over in the entry models.
Aside from the powertrains, further updates include the Pivi Pro infotainment system that supports over-the-air updates, a revised steering wheel design, the new Active Road Noise
Cancellation function, a new cabin air filtration system, and the second-generation wearable Activity Key.
All Velar models also get adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and wade sensing as standard.
The 2021 Range Rover Velar line-up is available to order now with the first deliveries expected from March 2021.
