Land Rover has introduced a host of enhancements to the Range Rover Velar including a broader engine choice, new safety technology and more features.

Steering assist is now available. It operates between 0-110mph and uses the existing adaptive cruise control functionality with lane centring to steer the vehicle within its lane as it maintains a set distance from the vehicle in front.

It also includes a stop and go function that allows the driver to follow a vehicle to a smooth stop and resume from stationary when the driver prompts the system by tapping the accelerator pedal.

The radar-based High-Speed Emergency Braking enables enhanced forward collision detection. It works between 6-99mph and is able to detect an imminent collision, alerting the driver and applying the brakes if the driver fails to respond.

All Velar models now benefit from a rear view camera, front and rear parking sensors, driver condition monitor, emergency braking and lane keep assist as standard.

Adaptive Dynamics is now optionally available on a number of models throughout the range. By monitoring wheel movement 500 times per second, and body movements 100 times per second, the system continuously varies the damping forces at all four corners of vehicle. This ensures that suspension stiffness is optimised for the driving conditions, improving ride comfort and handling – there’s even a specific calibration for off-road driving.

Four-corner air suspension is now an option on all models with V6 engines, the four-cylinder 240PS diesel and 300PS petrol. This system delivers higher level of comfort and significantly increased off-road capability.

The Velar now has a D275 engine option, a 275PS 3.0-litre V6 diesel, producing 625Nm of torque. The new D275 enhances the options across the range and enables customers the flexibility to specify the perfect car for them.

A larger 82-litre fuel (up from 63-litres) tank fitted to a number of petrol models, delivering greater range.

The Velar’s two petrol engine options are also now equipped with particulate filters to make them even cleaner.  The highly efficient, close-coupled filters are neatly integrated into the after treatment system and trap ultrafine particles as the exhaust gas passes through them. Under normal driving conditions, the trapped particles will be oxidised into CO2 and the filter regenerated whenever the driver lifts off the accelerator. 

The 19MY Range Rover Velar is available to order now with a starting price of £44,735.
