With an unwavering belief in minimalism, the new Range Rover Velar has been designed to combine elegant simplicity, sophistication and refinement. Its taut, sculpted exteriors surfaces make for an attention-grabbing silhouette. But pulling one of the flush, deployable door handles reveals Velar’s calm interior: a sanctuary crafted using premium materials, featuring uncluttered controls and meticulous attention to detail.
The technological centrepieces of Velar’s interior are complemented by contemporary finishes in materials of the finest. The cockpit’s distinctive horizontal architecture is celebrated with a new, embossed Cut Diamond signature design, which flows from the instrument panel through to the door casings to emphasise the width of the spacious cabin.
Windsor leather and premium textile seats feature a perforated interpretation, and the Cut Diamond motif forms an integral part of the stainless-steel speaker frets’ structure on the Meridian 17- and 23-speaker audio systems.
Unique to luxury SUVs, Velar offers an innovative premium textile seat material as an alternative to leather upholstery. Developed with Kvadrat, this sustainable material comes in Dapple Grey and features wool-blend textile contrasted with a Suedecloth insert available in Light Oyster or Ebony. Kvadrat is Europe’s leading manufacturer of high-quality design textiles, and worked closely with Land Rover to develop a luxurious alternative to leather upholstery. The Suedecloth fibres are created from recycled plastic bottles and crafted into a textured non-woven material that’s soft to the touch. This rich wool yarn is hard-wearing and appropriate for all climates, staying cool in the heat and warm in the cold. An advanced coating system ensures the Kvadrat textiles pass Land Rover’s most rigorous tests for durability and ease-of-cleaning.
Velar’s calming interior is enhanced through LED lighting, which casts a soft glow to subtly highlight the strong architectural lines. Configurable ambient lighting technology offers a choice of 10 different colour options.
