Range Rover Velar was named the most beautiful car in the world and won the “The World Car Design Of The Year” as part of the 2018 World Car Awards.
Velar offers a unique combination of excellent design and engineering integrity, bringing glamor, modernity and elegance to the Range Rover family.
“Range Rover Velar is a remarkable, superior SUV. Exquisite modernity, appealing design, innovative Touch Pro Duo information and entertainment technology and a clear focus on sustainability – what combination. This product speaks for itself. – said the CEO of Jaguar Land Rover, prof. Dr. Ralph Spet.
After F-TYPE, Evoqué and F-PACE, Range Rover Velar now receives the “World Car Of The Year Design” award. This means a lot for us. I feel very proud and honored and I want to thank all jury members for their confidence and for their support in encouraging the Land Rover team to continue on their unique journey.
I also want to thank our Velar team for their passion and dedication with which they have moved their borders and came up with excellent solutions.”
The Range Rover Velar’s revolutionary design has perfectly optimized proportions and incredible silhouette. Its super-slim Matrix Laser-LED headlamps, flat door handles and the elegance of the Touch Pro Duo are features for the Range Rover Reduction Design philosophy.
“The continuing evolution of our design philosophy is fueled by the tireless focus of creating many desired vehicles that our customers will want lifelong. Range Rover Velar brings a new dimension of modernity to the Range Rover family, with an abundance of innovative technologies that create great feelings while driving this vehicle, “said Jaguar Land Rover, design chief designer, Gary McGovern.
We are honored that the jury has recognized the efforts of our designers and engineers to deliver a vehicle with irresistible design, tailor-made technology and relevant innovations that come together to create an instantly desirable vehicle.”
The luxury SUV has beaten the Volvo XC60 and the Lexus LC 500 to win the “The World Car Design” award, as voted by the The World Car Awards jury, composed of 82 influential journalists from 24 countries around the world.
Velar’s success follows the double victory in 2017 of the Jaguar F-PACE. Launched last year and named after the original Range Rover concept from the late 1960s, Velar fills space between Range Rover Evoque and Range Rover Sport.
The engine is available with a choice of six engines, ranging from a clean and rewarding 2.0-liter Ingenium diesel to 180 hp to the powerful 3.0-liter V6 gasoline engine of 380 hp.
Designed and manufactured in the UK, Velar delivers the convenience, connectivity and capability expected of the Range Rover family. With the latest technology and the inclusion of more sustainable materials, this luxurious SUV is designed to go “Above and Beyond”.
