What’s new?

As mentioned, a number of new technologies make life simpler with more options on a broad front.

Next generation: Range Rover Velar debuts the most advanced evolution of Pivi Pro9 infotainment technology featuring a single state-of-the-art 11.4-inch curved glass touchscreen. At the beginning of every journey, drivers are presented with a useful Pre-Drive panel for fast and convenient control of commonly used features at the beginning of every journey, such as window demisters and the optional heated seats.

Once on the move, the Pre-Drive panel disappears to reveal a three-panel home screen display that can be customised to suit individual preferences. The new Pivi Pro9 system allows the driver to control everything using the intuitive central touchscreen and positions climate controls higher up inside the vehicle, closer to the driver. It includes new sidebars featuring multi-functional sliding controls on either side of the display.

Seamless integration: Sophisticated, new floating touchscreen design is seamlessly integrated into the reductive centre console, providing access to a comprehensive set of vehicle features, including digital climate, volume and seat controls.

Quietest cabin: Active Road Noise Cancellation available with flagship MeridianTM sound systems ensures the Range Rover Velar offers the quietest vehicle in its class for road noise.

Superior sound: Advanced Meridian™ audio options include immersive 16-speaker 3D Surround Sound System with high-fidelity playback, subwoofer and 750W amplifier power.

Advanced lighting: Pixel LED Headlights with Signature Daytime Running Lights now offered, with Adaptive Driving Beam and Dynamic Bend Lighting technologies for better visibility and reduced dazzle.

Cleaner air: Cabin Air Purification Plus helps to ensure cleaner interior air via advanced cabin filtration systems with PM2.5 filtration as well as CO2 Management.

Connected convenience: Fully connected with Wireless Apple CarPlay™, smartphone integration is seamless. Wireless Android Auto® and Wireless Device Charging are also standard.

Always connected, always up to date: Software Over The Air enables the latest updates to be downloaded with no need to visit a retailer, while Wi-Fi capability provides constant connection and entertainment. For plug-in electric hybrid models, owners can check the level of remaining electric range, the charge status, charging time and set the cabin temperature through Pre-Conditioning, which uses the mains power rather than vehicle battery power.
