The 2018 Range Rover Velar Arrives At Geneva
Land Rover aims to cover any particular taste or need its customers talk about, hence the 2018 Range Rover Velar and its arrival at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. This new sports crossover was specially designed to fill the gap between the Evoque and the Range Rover Sport, starting off at just $49,900 in the US (£44,830 in the UK) – you’ll probably have to pay a little bit more for the top of the line ‘First Edition’.
Showing off familiar lines, the exterior of this new gorgeous addition to the Range Rover family looks clean and stylish. The vehicle sports an aluminum architecture that’s quite spacious, both for passengers and for your luggage as well, while looking quite cool. We’re guessing BMW X4 and Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe enthusiasts are teased to switch to Range Rover with this sporty crossover.
On the inside, the next owners of this beauty will get to experience the brand’s stylish design, as well as two ultra-wide 10″ touchscreens for entertainment – Land Rover calls this new infotainment setup “Touch Pro Duo” and it comes backed up by an Intel Quad Core CPU, 60GB SSD and ultra-fast Ethernet network.
The Matrix-Laser LED Headlights, gesture-controlled power tailgate, and the digital instrument cluster are also part of the offering. North America will allow Land Rover buyers to receive one of two gasoline engines, a 247-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged and a 380-hp 3.0-liter supercharged V6.
There’s also a 2.0-liter diesel version, which might not sound that interesting, but it’s well worth mentioning that an eight-speed automatic transmission will be available all across the range. Keep your fingers crossed for an SVR version!
