A crossover SUV with performance and style

The 2020 Range Rover Velar underwent several trim level changes to meet the needs of discerning SUV buyers. This crossover SUV’s cabin minimizes road and wind noise with its aerodynamic spoiler, undertrays, and acoustically laminated front glazing. Rear-seat passengers will be more comfortable with optional reclining seats, climate control, and infotainment screens.

Slide into the Sports Command Driving Position with the help of the Velar’s optional electronic air suspension, and enhance your drive with better visibility. Range Rover Velar trim packages were enriched with rear seat heaters, a heated steering wheel, and SiriusXM satellite radio ready as standard equipment in 2020.

5 reasons to buy the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar

1. Enhanced interior styling  

Most 2020 Range Rover Velar surfaces are covered in leather, carbon fiber finishers, or wood grain veneers. You may opt for leather and suede seating for extra opulence in the R-Dynamic S. The Touch Pro Duo infotainment system offers rich features, however, it may take some time for you to master it.   

2. Captivating aerodynamic exterior body shape 

Most 2020 Range Rover Velar features are common to other Range Rover vehicles. The fastback sloped body styling, on the other hand, is a stand-out difference that adds sleek style. You won’t be bothered by disruptive wind or engine noise in the Velar either. For daily practicality, its body styling offers about 60 cu-ft of storage space, more than rival SUVs in its class. It is even more appealing than some of its Land Rover siblings like the Land Rover Sport. 

3. Wide range of driver assist features 

Once you're up to speed on how the Touch Duo Pro screen, you can configure the 2020 Range Rover Velar’s assistive features like Terrain Response® for the many road and off-road conditions you may find yourself faced with like snow, gravel, grass, and sand. The active rear locking differential enhances traction in these kinds of weather conditions to support Terrain Response. 

4. Capable performance 

If you use your SUV as your daily driver and seldom leave your comfort zone of smoothly paved asphalt, you are depriving yourself of a unique, fun experience. Grab an adventurous friend, and head out to a secluded area with some uneven terrain. Discover your 2020 Range Rover Velar's traction and power capabilities. The 360° surround camera, and parking space locator capabilities available in appropriately equipped Velars also need to be experienced to be appreciated. The driver condition monitor will let you know if you need a break from driving. Traffic sign recognition cameras and adaptive speed limiters are a subtle but helpful way of keeping within limits and identifying any hazards before you encounter them.  

5. Loads of standard features and packaged options 

The 2020 SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition is a superlative SUV with loads of features. Power, luxury, and invigorating driving experiences come standard in this vehicle, which is custom-designed by Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations. Unique front grille design, corner following headlights, and quad tailpipes are just some of the options you can own with this exceptional SUV.
