With an unwavering belief in minimalism, the new Range Rover Velar has been designed to combine elegant simplicity, sophistication and refinement.
Outside, its taut, sculpted surfaces draw attention to its stunning silhouette. And pulling one of the flush deployable door handles reveals Velar’s calm sanctuary: an interior crafted using premium materials, featuring uncluttered controls and with meticulous attention to detail.
The technological centrepieces of Velar’s interior are complemented by authentic materials of the finest quality – contemporary finishes that underline Velar’s luxury status. The cockpit’s distinctive horizontal architecture is celebrated with a new, embossed cut diamond signature design, which flows from the instrument panel through to the door casings to emphasise the width of the spacious cabin.
Windsor Leather and premium textile seats
Windsor Leather and premium textile seats feature a perforated interpretation, and the cut diamond motif forms an integral part of the stainless-steel speaker frets’ structure on the meridian 17- and 23-speaker audio systems.
Unique to the luxury SUV segment, Velar offers an innovative premium textile seat material as an alternative to leather upholstery. Developed with Kvadrat, this sustainable material comes in dapple grey and features wool-blend textile contrasted with a suedecloth insert available in light oyster or ebony.
High-quality, sustainable design textiles
Kvadrat is Europe’s leading manufacturer of high-quality design textiles, and it worked closely with Land Rover to develop a unique and luxurious alternative to leather upholstery. The suedecloth fibres are created from recycled plastic bottles and crafted into a textured non-woven material that’s soft to the touch.
This UK-made, sustainable material has been designed and created to meet Land Rover’s leading standards for premium appearance, comfort and durability. Exhibiting many natural characteristics, this rich wool yarn is extremely hard-wearing and appropriate for all climates, staying cool in the heat and warm in the cold. An advanced coating system ensures the Kvadrat textiles pass Land Rover’s most rigorous tests for durability and ease-of-cleaning.
Perfectly-crafted trim finishes celebrate the natural look and texture of authentic materials
Choices include satin blonde linear veneer, which is pale-stained and has a satin feel open-pore finish to give a very modern, airy character, and the prestigious Argento pin-stripe, which is distinguished by its high-gloss finish and silver streaks to emphasise the wood grain. Another highlight is carbon fibre copper weave trim, created by weaving carbon fibre and copper filaments together under a high gloss finish to signify sporting luxury.
Calming interior and ambience
Velar’s calming interior ambience is enhanced through LED lighting, which casts a soft glow to subtly highlight the strong architectural lines and authentic materials. Configurable ambient lighting technology offers a choice of 10 different colour options.
