The new offering will be available in Standard, S, SE or HSE specifications, along with a flagship ‘First Edition’ version.
Some of the stand-out features that the new offering boasts include the distinctive flush door handles, up to 22” alloy wheels, and fully digital infotainment system and instrument panel.
An active locking rear diff and Terrain Response 2 system ensure the model has better than decent off-road ability.
While many potential buyers will be interested in the towing capacity – the Velar is rated to up to 2,500kg.
