The Range Rover Velar has been judged the most beautifully designed vehicle on the planet, winning the World Car Design of the Year title at the 2018 World Car Awards. 

The stunning SUV is available for viewing and test drive at Indera Motors Sdn Bhd, the sole distributor and retailer of Land Rover vehicles in Brunei. 

World-renowned elegance and beauty

Velar’s design is beautifully balanced, from its powerful proportions to its continuous waist line through to the taut tapered lines of the rear. 

The generous wheelbase contributes significantly to its elegant profile while helping to provide a spacious interior.

The SUV’s large alloy wheels, offered at 20” standard optimise the vehicle’s stunning silhouette, while further enhancing Velar’s dramatic presence, unmatched and unrivalled in the mid-range SUV segment.

Inside, Velar’s interior is synonymous with elegant simplicity, sophistication and refinement.  

An unwavering belief in reductionism has been fully employed, with switches being kept to an absolute minimum to help create a calm sanctuary.

Unique in the mid-size SUV segment, the Velar offers a sustainable, premium textile seat material as an alternative to leather.

The material was developed together with Kvadrat, Europe’s leading manufacturer of high-quality design textiles, and is complemented with Suedecloth inserts in Ebony. Velar’s Seat comfort is enhanced on SE variants with 14-way driver memory front seats.

Built for the future

Advanced technology is pivotal to the contemporary design: the slender Matrix LED headlights with signature DRL deliver a sophisticated appearance to the vehicle.

The flush deployable door handles emphasise Velar’s reductive, sculptured form, and contribute to the low drag coefficient from 0.32.

Design-enabling technology has been engaged fully to create the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system, which is the centrepiece of Velar’s interior.

Touch Pro Duo features two 10-inch high-definition touchscreens integrated seamlessly behind hidden-until-lit surfaces.

These slim, intuitive displays work in harmony with the cabin architecture while adding an overall sense of modernity that complements the vehicle’s exterior design.

All of this is equalled by the Velar’s practicality: luggage compartment volume is an impressive 673-litres.

Unrivalled safety capability

Velar’s 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, and the Velar has been developed to meet the most demanding crash test regulations worldwide, securing a five-star Euro NCAP Safety rating in 2017.

Further safety features include a 360◦ Camera, Front, Rear Parking Aids, Driver Condition Monitor, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) which are all fitted as standard. High-Speed Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control are available as option drive pack.
