The newest member of the Range Rover family, the Velar has been revealed in London.
The Velar will sit between the Evoque and Sport models.
Full Australian specifications are yet to be confirmed, however, prices will range from $70,300 - $135,400 plus on-roads. A unique ‘First Edition’ model will also be available at launch priced from $167,600 plus on-road costs.
Land Rover claims the Velar is the ‘avant garde Range Rover’ that aims to deliver increased levels of refinement, elegance and technology.
Headlining features include a new infotainment system, featuring two 10-inch high definition touchscreens for improved functionality and intuitive operation.
There is also Matrix Laser-LED headlights and flush deployable door handles that form part of the brands visually reductive approach.
In Europe, six powertrains are available, ranging from the 132kW 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel to the 280kW supercharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine.
All models in the range will be matched to a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission.
Innovation is abundant and the attention to detail and changing market conditions is impressive. For instance, the Velar will offer a premium alternative to leather on the seats with a new textile offering codeveloped with leading European textile maker Kvadrat.
Built on  Jaguar Land Rover’s Lightweight Aluminium Architecture, the Velar will also be the most aerodynamically-efficient Range Rover with a drag coefficient from 0.32.
The Velar will also be equipped with Land Rover’s highly regarded Terrain Response 2 system that allows drivers to switch between different modes depending on the driving surface.
With a wheelbase measuring 2,874mm and a 558 litre capacity in the back, families will no doubt appreciate the space.
Being feature loaded with sharp pricing, the Velar is poised to be a very successful inclusion to the Range Rover line-up.
