The luxury SUV was created in 1970 when Land Rover launched the original Range Rover. Almost half a century later that spirit of innovation continues with the fourth member of the Range Rover family.

Positioned between Range Rover Evoque and Range Rover Sport, the Velar brings modernity and elegance to the Range Rover family. This feels like is a new type of Range Rover for a new type of client.

Velar brings increased choice to new and existing customers in a growing SUV market. It leads the way in terms of design, usable technology, new materials and of course Land Rover’s legendary go anywhere, do anything capability.”
