For the first time in One Decade, there’s an entirely new Range Rover version in town. Its name is Velar, it ports in between the Evoque and also the Sporting activity and also it actually, really hopes you don’t mind touchscreens.
The 2018 Land Vagabond Array Wanderer Velar uses the exact same aluminum framework as the Jaguar F-Pace, yet both look fairly different. The Velar is a great mix of present Range Wanderer design, with a few bonus, like deployable door manages and available copper specificing on the hood vents, bumper blades and also fender vents. Its 0.32 drag coefficient makes this the slipperiest Land Rover ever constructed.
