2019 Range Rover Velar Review
As you’ll see in our 2019 Range Rover Velar review, this avant-garde SUV brings plenty of power and style to the Santa Fe, White Rock, and La Cienega areas. In fact, the team at Land Rover Santa Fe found a lot to like about the Velar, which we’ll cover here. Be sure to contact us with any questions you might have!
2019 Range Rover Velar Efficient Engine Specs
The Range Rover Velar can be powered by one of three available engines:
- 2.0L Turbocharged I-4 Diesel: 180 horsepower, 317 lb-ft of torque
- 2.0L Turbocharged I-4 Gas: 247 horsepower, 269 lb-ft of torque
- 3.0L Supercharged V6: 380 horsepower, 332 lb-ft of torque
No matter which engine you choose, it’ll come paired with a highly responsive 8-speed automatic transmission that optimizes performance and efficiency.
Fuel economy is improved by standard Stop/Start Technology, as well. This feature prevents fuel waste by powering down your engine while idling at stop lights or sitting in traffic. When you hit the accelerator, the 2019 Velar’s engine quickly and seamlessly powers back on.
You’ll also conserve energy every time you hit the brakes with smart regenerative charging. This feature stores kinetic braking energy to charge the battery.
Handling Capabilities in the Range Rover Velar
The new Range Rover is not afraid to get a little adventurous. In fact, this SUV is always adventure-ready with a standard ground clearance of 9.9 inches and the ability to wade in up to 25.5 inches of water when necessary.
You can optimize your handling capabilities with the available Terrain Response® system that lets you choose between six different drive modes depending on the challenges you face:
- Mud and Ruts
- Dynamic Mode
With the available Terrain Response® 2 system, you can also choose Auto mode, which automatically selects the right mode for your needs based on your driving conditions.
Whether you’re heading off-road or cruising the highway, you’ll be sure that every ride is a smooth one with the available Electronic Air Suspension. This feature quickly adjusts the vehicle’s height to keep all four wheels on the ground when driving over uneven surfaces.
If you’re traveling at highway speeds, the suspension lowers to reduce aerodynamic drag and fuel consumption. Then, when you reach your destination, you can exit the vehicle with poise and elegance as the suspension automatically lowers by 1.6 inches to allow for a relaxed and comfortable dismount.
2019 Range Rover Velar Infotainment System Review
When you slide behind the wheel of this 2019 Range Rover model, you’ll be greeted by a refined and almost minimalistic interior. Instead of knobs and buttons, this SUV can feature two sleek touchscreens as part of the available Touch Pro™ Duo infotainment system.
This system allows you to control multiple features at once. For example, you can view navigation on the upper screen while selecting the perfect song on the lower screen. With standard Bluetooth® connectivity, you can easily stream music from your phone or make and take hands-free phone calls using the touchscreen or steering-wheel-mounted controls.
