Car on Display at Al Tayer Motors and Premier Motors Showrooms

Dubai, 29 October 2017:  One of the most hotly anticipated vehicles announced by Land Rover, the Range Rover Velar, has arrived at official UAE importer-dealer Al Tayer Motors and Premier Motors showrooms.

Velar, which fills the white space between the Range Rover Evoque and the Range Rover Sport, is a mid-size luxury SUV that delivers new levels of refinement, elegance and technology.

The Range Rover Velar brings a new dimension of glamour, modernity and elegance to the Range Rover family and offers levels of luxury, refinement and all-terrain capability never before seen in the mid-size SUV segment. This is a new type of Range Rover for a new type of customer.

“The Velar is an exciting new addition to the Range Rover family and a great new choice for customers looking to buy a distinctive, modern vehicle. We have received tremendous interest in the car from customers since it was announced and we look forward to seeing it on the beautiful roads of the UAE,” said Talal Merheb, Senior Vice-President, Jaguar Land Rover, Al Tayer Motors.

The car is priced starting from AED 246,400/- and can be viewed at Al Tayer Motors showrooms in Dubai, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah as well as Premier Motors showrooms in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain

Details
Created from a clean sheet using Jaguar Land Rover's Lightweight Aluminium Architecture, the Velar represents the next chapter of the Range Rover success story. Velar is defined by a visually reductive approach and meticulous attention to precision in every detail, which evolves Range Rover DNA and previews the next generation of Range Rover vehicles.

Velar's design is beautifully balanced, from its powerful proportions to its continuous waist line through to the taut tapered lines of the rear. The generous wheelbase contributes significantly to its elegance while helping to provide a spacious interior. The large alloy wheels – in particular the range of 22-inch designs – optimise the vehicle's stunning silhouette, while further enhancing Velar's dramatic presence.

Advanced technology is pivotal to the contemporary design: the full-LED headlights are the most slender ever to appear on a production Land Rover vehicle. Flush deployable door handles emphasise Velar's reductive, sculptured form, and contribute to the low drag coefficient of only 0.32 – this is the most aerodynamically-efficient Land Rover ever produced.

Look inside Velar's interior and you will see elegant simplicity, sophistication and refinement.  An unwavering belief in reductionism has been fully employed, with switches being kept to an absolute minimum to help create a calm sanctuary.

Design enabling technology has been engaged fully to create the new Touch Pro Duo infotainment system which is the centrepiece of Velar's interior. Touch Pro Duo features two 10-inch high-definition touchscreens integrated seamlessly behind secret-until-lit surfaces. These slim, intuitive displays work in harmony with the cabin architecture while adding an overall sense of modernity congruent with the vehicle's exterior design. All of this is equalled by the Velar's practicality: luggage compartment volume is an impressive 673-litres.

The light, stiff, aluminium-intensive body, together with double-wishbone front- and Integral Link rear suspension provides the perfect basis for agile handling, superior ride comfort and outstanding refinement. It also delivers exceptional levels of crash protection, and the Velar has been developed to meet the most demanding crash test regulations worldwide.

Combined with a comprehensive restraints system that includes six airbags, and a suite of advanced driver assistance systems including Autonomous Emergency Braking with pedestrian detection, Adaptive Cruise Control with Queue Assist and an Adaptive Speed Limiter, the Velar integrates the latest safety technology.

The Velar features a sophisticated all-wheel drive system, four-corner air suspension, class-leading ground clearance of 251mm (213mm with coil springs), class-leading wading depth of 650mm (600mm with coil springs) and Land Rover's unmatched suite of traction technologies including Terrain Response 2 and All Terrain Progress Control. The Velar – like all Range Rovers – offers world-class all-terrain capability.

Exceptional performance and efficiency comes from the range of two petrol powertrains, matched to smooth-shifting ZF eight-speed automatic transmissions and all-wheel drive with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics.

The Velar is equipped with the new, highly-advanced four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine which delivers 250PS and enables acceleration from 0-100km/h in just 6.7 seconds (0-60mph in 6.4 seconds). The 380PS supercharged V6 petrol engine combines exhilarating performance with a unique soundtrack and enables the Velar to reach 100km/h in only 5.7 seconds (0-60mph in 5.3 seconds) before reaching an electronically-limited top speed of 250km/h (155mph).

In the UAE, the Velar and Velar R-Dynamic core range comprises S, SE and HSE specifications. Customers can also specify Black and Luxury Exterior Packs for an even more distinguished appearance.

Of all Velar models, the most exclusive of all will be the First Edition, which will be available for one model year only. Even more luxurious than the HSE specification, this model is powered solely by the 3.0-litre V6 petrol engines and features a wealth of extra features as standard, including full extended leather interior trim to complement the perforated Windsor leather seats in Light Oyster or Ebony, 1,600W Meridian Signature Sound System, Matrix-Laser LED headlights and 22-inch split-spoke wheels with diamond-turned finish.

Exterior paint colours for the First Edition are Corris Grey, Silicon Silver, and Flux Grey – a unique satin finish exclusive to the First Edition for the first model year only – which is meticulously hand-sprayed at Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations' Oxford Road Technical Centre in the UK.

Designed and engineered at Jaguar Land Rover's development centres in the UK, Velar is produced at the company's Solihull production facility, UK.
