The new Range Rover Velar, which gets its public debut at Geneva next week, is the first Land Rover to use the Lightweight Aluminium Architecture that underpins the Jaguar XE and the F-Pace, writes Brian Byrne.
The sleekly styled Velar has the same wheelbase as the F-Pace and is built on the same assembly line in Solihull, but will be significantly more expensive than the Jaguar cousin.
The Velar gives Range Rover its first mid-sized SUV and will target the Porsche Macan and BMW X4.
Power will be from 4-cylinder diesel and petrol engines, as well as V6s in both fuel kinds. Power outputs will range 177hp-375hp.
