The new addition to the Range Rover family will come with the reassurance of a maximum five-star ANCAP safety rating.
Perhaps not a great surprise given the consistently high safety ratings handed to Land Rover products today, the new Range Rover Velar performed well right across the board, according to ANCAP CEO James Goodwin.
“Autonomous emergency braking is provided as a standard feature on the Velar, and it operates effectively at high and low-speeds, and can detect and react to pedestrians.”
“Maximum points were scored for adult occupants in these two lateral crash tests, and child occupant protection – which looks at the protection offered for a 6-year-old and 10 year old child – was also good.”
ANCAP reports that the Velar achieved ‘Good’ levels of protection to occupants in the side impact and oblique poll tests.
While the all-new model, which sits between the Evoque and Range Rover Sport, a ‘Marginal’ level of protection was recorded for the chest of the rear seat adult occupant in the full width frontal test.
