Overcoming the likes of the Volvo XC60 and the Lexus LC 500 to take the World Car Design of the Year award, the Range Rover Velar has been judged by the World Car Awards jury, comprising 82 influential motoring journalists from 24 countries, to be the most beautifully designed vehicle on the planet, winning the World Car Design of the Year title at the 2018 World Car Awards.
Bringing glamour, modernity and elegance to the Range Rover family, Velar offers a unique combination of design excellence and engineering integrity.
The distinctive design of the Range Rover Velar features perfectly optimised proportions and a stunning silhouette. Its super-slim Matrix Laser-LED headlights, flush deployable door handles and sleek Touch Pro Duo infotainment are all hallmarks of Range Rover’s reductionist design philosophy.
Velar’s success follows the 2017 double win for the Jaguar F-PACE. Launched last year and named after the codename for the original concept Range Rovers of the late 1960s, the Velar fills the space between the Range Rover Evoque and Range Rover Sport.
It is available with a choice of six powertrains, ranging from the clean and responsive 180PS 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel to the potent 380PS supercharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine. Designed, engineered and manufactured in the UK, the Velar delivers the practicality, connectivity and capability expected from the Range Rover family. With the latest technology and the inclusion of more sustainable materials, this luxury SUV is designed to go Above and Beyond.
The Range Rover Velar, will reach Malaysia shores in April of 2018, is now open for booking at all Land Rover retailers.Customers can also register their interest and receive updates at www.landrover.com.my/keep-me-informed.
