Last month, the world got a small taste of the 2018 Range Rover Velar. That taste was a photo of its roof, which has the biggest sunroof (if you even want to call it that) that we have ever seen. As we mentioned in the Velar teaser post, the SUV gets its name from the Land Rove first ever prototype model.
With three models in the Range Rover family (the traditional, the Sport, and the Evoque), you might ask why the need to add a fourth? Well, truth is the price and quality gap between the Sport and the Evoque is sizable. Now Range Rover can actually compete against the likes of BMW, Mercedes and other such luxury brands.
The price of the Range Rover Velar will start at $49,000. That’s certainly not cheap, but it isn’t way out of reach either.
The Velar comes with your choice of three different engines, all with varying levels of power. Starting with 180 horsepower diesel up to a 380 horsepower supercharged 3.0-liter V6.
As you’ll see below, the interior is full of technology, including two 10-inch touchscreens and a windshield projected HUD.
The dual arm rest is a nice touch. Especially if your co-pilot thinks they have a right to use it.
