THE 2021 Range Rover Velar 2.0L R-Dynamic is refreshed with an enhanced interior design, improvements to the Driver Assistance Systems, Pivi Pro – an all-new intuitive infotainment system, and several other features including an Electronic Air Suspension.
The enhanced interior of the Velar takes inspiration from analogous industries such as interior design, fashion and consumer electronics to give the new interior a significant visual uplift.
Noticeable changes include a new toggle shifter and a new steering wheel design with integrated smart buttons and hands-on wheel detection feature.
It also comes with a host of innovative features that enhances the experience of everyone on board, including the premium cabin lighting, 10-inch dual touch screen, a 12.3-inch Interactive driver display, a coloured head-up display and more.
Driver Assistance Systems have been upgraded with a 3D surround camera that provides the driver with a 3-dimensional view around the Velar which makes manoeuvring across different terrains easier – displaying several views simultaneously including a 3D perspective view plan from above and ClearSight ground view.
Inspired by the latest mobile devices, Pivi Pro, Jaguar Land Rover’s all-new infotainment system is customisable to display information that is most relevant to the driver and can be directly accessed in two taps or less.
Users can also connect two smart phones at once so driver and passenger can enjoy hands-free connectivity without having to swap connection.
Another new great feature that comes with the Velar is the Active Road Noise Cancellation (ARNC) system.
It comes standard with the Meridian sound system that works just like a pair of high-end noise cancellation headphones to deliver a quiet and more refined cabin experience.
The electronic air suspension with an automatic access height is another update found in the 2021 Velar.
It changes the vehicle‘s height quickly to keep all four wheels on the ground, even on the most uneven surfaces.
This makes entering or loading heavy objects into the Velar so much easier and convenient.
The vehicle’s height can be altered by +/- 50mm to suit your needs using the 10-inch touchscreen, key fob or control buttons in the loadspace area.
In addition, the air suspension’s ride height drops by 10mm to improve the aerodynamic drag thereby improving fuel efficiency when cruising above 105km/h.
Wade Sensing, which is unique to Land Rover models is now available with the 2021 Velar.
The system uses ultrasonic sensors in the exterior mirrors to visually (via the touchscreen) and audibly alert the driver if water approaches the vehicle’s wading depth.
Maintaining the same P250 powertrain, the Velar produces 246hp and high maximum torque of 365Nm, available from 1,300rpm and 4,500rpm.
Exceptional performance and efficiency come from its Ingenium powertrain, matched to a smooth-shifting ZF eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics.
Designed and engineered at Jaguar Land Rover’s development centres in the UK, the Velar is manufactured at the company’s Solihull production facility.
The 2021 Velar 2.0L R-Dynamic is now on sale at a starting price of RM612,207.74 (inclusive of 50% Penjana sales tax waiver, excluding road tax, registration and insurance) and it comes with a five-year warranty, five years’ free service and three years’ roadside assistance.
