Land Rover Range Rover Velar is already a stylish vehicle, but the company gives it a bit more panache with the new HST model. The automaker is also launching the Edition model of the Velar with some dark accents.
The HST Edition features a stealthy yet aggressive look highlighted by new exterior features such as a Black contrast roof and full exterior Black Pack including Gloss Black 21-inch 5 split-spoke alloy wheels and privacy glass. The HST Edition is available in the full Range Rover colour palette, and exclusively in the eye-catching Arrois Grey.
Inside, there’s a black suede-like material for the headliner and steering wheel, a panoramic roof, and multiple electronic driver-assist features including adaptive cruise control with steering assist, as well as park assist, and a surround-view camera.
For the chassis, you get air suspension and adaptive dampers as standard. The latter relies on multiple sensors that read the road condition and adjust the damping to suit. There’s also a custom setting that lets the driver choose his or her own preferences
JLR’s new Ingenium straight-six will provide the motivation for the SUV, displacing 3.0 litres and pumping out 395 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque. The gasoline engine is connected to a mild hybrid system, the same as the one found in the Jaguar F-Pace.
“The new Range Rover Velar HST offers a combination of carefully curated design enhancements and chassis features; to add to its breadth of capability, without compromising its trademark refinement and comfort,” said Land Rover brand director Finbar McFall.
