2023 Land Rover Range Rover Velar has gotten more stylish without any changes. With the arrival of Velar in 2018, it pushed the brand’s design aesthetic farther than it had ever gone before. The car’s experience is not as engaging or refined as the BMW X3’s, Genesis GV70’s, or Porsche Macan’s. This is a high-style SUV with an undeniable road presence and a well-respected luxury name.
For the year 2023, the Range Rover Velar gains a sporty-looking HST model. It is finished with an exclusive Arroios Grey paint option and unique 21-inch black wheels. The HST will sit above the Velar’s trims and will be equipped only with the 395-hp turbocharged-and-supercharged inline-six engine. Along with an adjustable air suspension and adaptive damper system which are standard, too.
The Velar’s simple interior will be most loved by modern architecture enthusiasts, inspired mostly by horizontal lines and bold rectilinear forms. Also, the materials used are of high quality and implemented in interesting ways. For the door trim, instead of using their material i.e., wood or carbon fiber, Land Rover adds the owner’s choice of wood or metal into the section of the door. The dash features savagely futuristic-looking dual dashboard-touchscreen displays.
These dual 10.0-inch displays live on Land Rover’s new Pivi Pro infotainment interface, which is easier to use and more responsive. Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, voice control, eight speakers, in-dash navigation, and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration are all standard. The latest safety driver-assistance technologies include automated emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control on the Velar.
Engine, Performance, Top-Speed, 0-60 Mph & Mileage
The base trim sports a 247 hp turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine, which rides smooth but struggles to pull Velar’s heft when required. The four-cylinder Velar just takes 7.4 seconds to hit 0-60 mph. lastly, the turbocharged-and-supercharged 3.0L inline-six provides better acceleration which offers 395 hp. The car has a top speed of 135 mph and an EPA mileage rating of 20 mpg city and 26 mpg highway.
For the best bang for the buck, one should go with the P250 R-Dynamic S, adding 19-inch wheels, dual exhaust with polished finishers, a blacked-out grille, and leather-and-suede interior upholstery. Also, adding the Dynamic Handling package, which includes an adjustable suspension system, a drive-mode selector, and All-Terrain Progress Control. But, hence do make your decisions wisely as the base starts from $61,575 and goes all the way up to $80,475 for the HST.
