The Range Rover Velar gets a number of tweaks, including a new D275 V6 diesel engine option, particulate filters and more technology.
The Range Rover Velar is that very good looking (although that’s colour dependent to a degree) Range Rover built to fill a gap between the Evoque and Sport, although it looks to be stealing sales from the Evoque and Sport as well as garnering new customers.
Now, just a year after its arrival, Land Rover are giving the Velar range a few tweaks to make it even more appealing, including delivering a de-tuned 271bhp version of the V6 Diesel in a new Velar D275, presumably to get a V6 Diesel in under the magic £50k level (it costs £49,740).
Other updates for 2019 MY include the availability of Kvadrat seats (a specially developed woollen textile) in the Velar as an alternative to leather, and Adaptive Cruise with Steering Assist and Stop and Go join the Velar’s driver assist systems. Additionally, all Velars now come with a Rear Camera, Front and Rear Parking Aids, Driver Condition Monitor, Emergency Braking and Lane Keep Assist.
Other tweaks include a bigger fuel tank for P250 and P300 (up by 30 per cent – which may tell you something about their real world fuel economy), particulate filters for the petrol-engined models, air suspension option on the V6 engines and D240 and P300 and Adaptive Dynamics on a number of models.
The 2019 model year Range Rover Velar is now on sale with prices starting from £44,735.
