Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia has just rolled out the 3.0L R-Dynamic variant of the Range Rover Velar for local motoring enthusiasts who want to experience more power in their drive while enjoying the “modernity and elegance” that this luxurious mid-sized SUV has to offer. Priced at RM722,787, this variant is now available at all LR showrooms nationwide.
The P380 Supercharged V6 petrol engine, this variant offers exhilarating performance that enables the Velar to reach 100km/h in only 5.7 seconds before reaching an electronically limited top speed of 250km/h. The exhaust note has been enhanced to produce a deep powerful note that is sweet sounding to match the refined cabin.
The Velar is known for its exquisite cabin which uses premium and luxury materials to reflect extravagance. The instrument panel’s strong, horizontal beam is the defining element of the Velar’s interior architecture while the slender air vents reinforce the Velar’s reductive, technology-enabled design. The seats are covered with perforated leather combined with Kvadrat’s* luxurious fabric for an opulent plush.
*Only available with the Premium Textile Interior Pack.
More on the Range Rover Velar 3.0…
Pioneering consumer technologies such as the flush deployable door handles and the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system are among the advanced features of the Velar. The Touch Pro Duo features two 10-inch high-definition touchscreens integrated seamlessly behind secret-until-lit surfaces. These slim, intuitive displays work in harmony with the cabin architecture while adding an overall sense of modernity to the vehicle’s design.
The flush deployable door handles are a futuristic feature and deploy when the vehicle is unlocked and retract once the vehicle is locked. The door handle design contributes to the low drag coefficient. At only 0.32, it is the most aerodynamically-efficient Land Rover ever produced. Another great feature that adds to the aesthetics of the Velar is the Matrix LED Headlights, one of the most slender headlights to appear on a Land Rover vehicle. These boldly designed headlights produce a quality of light close to daylight, giving excellent illumination and reducing eye fatigue.
The Velar’s body is built with aluminium-intensive monocoque using Jaguar Land Rover’s Lightweight Aluminium Architecture. Aluminium alloys account for more than 81 percent of the body-in-white – a figure no competitor can match. Its light, stiff, aluminium-intensive body, together with double-wishbone front and Integral Link rear suspension provides the perfect basis for agile handling, superior ride comfort and outstanding refinement. It also delivers exceptional levels of crash protection that the Velar has been developed to meet.
It is also one of the safest vehicles due to its comprehensive safety system that includes six airbags and a suite of technology advanced driver assistance system. The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Stop & Go and Emergency Braking system that is equipped in the Velar adds on to the driver’s convenience when cruising on the highway or driving in traffic. The ACC maintains a set cruising speed, and a driver-selectable gap to the vehicle in front. The technology ensures that the vehicle will come to a complete stop when the vehicle in front does.
The radar-based High-Speed Emergency Braking technology increases the capacity and speed at which Emergency Braking is able to function, operating between 10-160km/h. If the radar detects an imminent collision, it will sound an audible alert to the driver and, if the driver doesn’t take any avoiding action, the vehicle will brake in order to mitigate a collision.
The 3.0L Velar features a sophisticated all-wheel drive system, four-corner air suspension, class-leading ground clearance of 251mm, class-leading wading depth of 650mm. The air suspension’s ride height drops by 10mm when cruising at speeds above 105km/h to reduce aerodynamic drag and improve fuel efficiency.
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 Velar is recognised globally and locally as one of the best SUVs of 2018. Among its recent awards include the Premium Large SUV of Malaysia by the 2018 Cars of Malaysia Aurizn Awards and Best Large-size Luxury SUV/Crossover by Star Carsifu Editor’s Choice Awards 2018.
