Land Rover will be launching the all new coupe-like SUV, the Velar in India next month. Ahead of the launch, dealers have begun taking bookings for the vehicle and have shared indicative pricing of the same.
Petrol: S: Rs 79 lakhs, SE: Rs 81 lakhs and HSE: Rs 85 lakhs
Diesel 2.0: S: Rs 79 lakhs, SE: Rs 81 lakhs and HSE: Rs 85 lakhs
Diesel 3.0: S: Rs 1.10 crores, SE: Rs 1.12 crores and HSE: Rs 1.18 crores
There will be 3 engine options on offer, 2 diesels and 1 petrol. The petrol is the same 2.0 liter 4 cylinder unit that powers the whole range currently. The unit produces 247 Bhp and 365 Nm and is mated to an 8 speed automatic transmission. The base diesel is the 2.0 liter 4 cylinder unit which produces 177 Bhp and 430 Nm. The same engine is on offer on the F-Pace as well, which is Jaguar’s first and only SUV. The top spec Velar will be powered by the 3.0 liter V6 which makes 296 Bhp and 700 Nm. This is a stonker of an engine and is the one you should opt for, if the budget permits.
The car gets LED headlamps with DRLs up front and LED tail lamps at the back. The vehicle sits on air suspension and it can lowered by as much as 50 mm. It also has a water wading depth of 650 mm with the suspension at the highest setting.
On the inside, the car gets a 20 way adjustable front seat with heating, cooling and the massage function. The car has 4-zone climate control and two 10″ touchscreen systems which can be personalized. Variants from the SE onward come with a 12.3 inch MFD giving all vital vehicle information. The car also gets heads up display.
Most dealers have started taking bookings with the tentative deliveries scheduled towards the end of 2017. The launch will be taking place mid September though.
