If you say that you have a SUV, saves no one more steep backwards; large and luxurious may go back. In 2011, the Evoque, a shrunken 40 thousand euro-dollar SUV for people who do have a Range Rover wanted, but not a ton from wanted to give. Because the step from 40 to 100 thousand euros, large, SUV’s are hot and Range Rover cars wants to sell, the Velar, which is from 74K to your driveway.
For that amount of Range Rover you at the Velar is always four-wheel drive and an automatic gearbox (the Evoque is also available with front wheel drive and manual gearbox). The loafers come with a four-cylinder diesel or petrol engine. I drove with the drieliter V6 diesel and there is also a drieliter V6 petrol. There’s something for everybody.
Minimalist and super sleek
The Range Rover Velar is what concerns me the most in its class. Its design is both inside and outside progressive, tight and distinctive. The car exudes class and everyone that I have spoken, ‘m beautiful. The Velar is simply nice and thick and in the car and you’re in a modern living room where all the comforts are provided. In this respect, the Velar much more on the primal Range Rover and Range Rover Sport, the Evoque.
The dashboard is, like the body tight. The digital dashboard gives bright colors clearly visible information to his rider. Futuristic are the 10 inch digital touchscreen infotainment monitor and the display to which the driving modes and climate control can be set. With the three knobs, you can control the climate in the car, the volume of the great-sounding Meridian sound system with 22 speakers) and also the AWD drive modes. Of course are controls for audio, phone and cruise control on the steering wheel.
The interior of the Range Rover Velar is minimalist, but super sleek and modern. Thanks to the huge glass panoramic roof seems to be the car even bigger, and the atmosphere in the interior to be spacious and exciting. Such as a Range Rover should be expected, the materials used in the premium plus and the finish of the car perfectionist.
Velar the new drive?
Perfectionists are also the performance of the Velar, he drives like a Range Rover, and as the Velar looks like: tight. Because the body a bit lower and a few hundred pounds lighter than that of the godfather, he feels more like a station wagon than as a great off-roader. The Velar feels a lot sportier than its bigger brothers. Because of this, he will very probably also very popular with discerning station wagon riders.
Thanks to its AWD and wagenhoogte-adjustment you can take the site in, but he is not really made for that. Although the Velar is less than its ‘terrain’brothers, I heard some wind noise in the car. But really a name, it must not wear. The six-cylinder diesel engine and eight speed automatic gearbox sourced from the high Range Rovers. They come in the Velar at least as good to their right. Thanks to great insulation, the motor, which is still a huge pack of 300 hp and 700 Nm of pulling power delivers, hardly audible. The seamless shifting gearbox ensures optimum comfort. The control of the Range is excellent, as it should be.
Range Rover has for the Velar of course, all of the available luxury and safety features. Also, there are abundant accessories for the ‘bridge’ between the Evoque and oer Range Rover available. You can for 75 thousand euro in a handsome car, but you can be just as crazy as you want and it was only around 140 thousand euros are ready.
Anyway, the Range Rover Velar is at this time in any case, the excentriekste and most pronounced SUV in its class. If you want to distinguish you what concerns me not to go. Thanks to the digital displays, make Range Rover even more luxury and comfort, making you even more relaxed on the road and even more equipped at the place of destination. If you do not want tons of to a car issue, but a Range Rover ride? Or are you looking for a low(er) SUV? Then, you will visit the dealer and take a test drive you are likely to convince.
