2018 Range Rover Velar Handles Dirt Trails With Ease



Some may not be a fan of the 2018 Range Rover Velar, perhaps due to its design or off-road capabilities, but Basem Wasef from AutoBlog seemed to like it during his trip around Norway. Heaping praise upon Range Rover's first midsize SUV after driving it both on and off road.

Sitting between the Evoque and Range Rover Sport, the Velar is around 2 inches shorter than the new Sport but that doesn’t mean it can’t handle a bit of off-road driving, especially aided by an air suspension system that raises ground clearance to 9.9 inches. Combined with the Terrain Response system which is set to “Mud and Ruts”, the Velar easily navigated around an inclining dirt trail with plenty of tight turns.

Helping you become more aware of your surroundings whilst driving over some small rocks are multiple camera angles of the exterior displayed on the navigation screen. If necessary, one can even find information on suspension travel, steering angle, and incline/decline/roll angles. There’s even the option to make select information more readily accessible by depicting it on the heads-up display.

Sure, it may not be as off-road worthy as the Discovery, but the Velar took on a man-made course spectacularly and on road-focused 22-inch wheels to boot. Sounds like a well-rounded package and we haven’t even discussed the engine options; a 247-horsepower four-cylinder turbo gas unit, a 180-hp four-cylinder turbo diesel, and a 380-hp supercharged V6.

Too bad with as capable as the Velar is there will be a small percent that actually go on the sort of terrain talked about here. I know in North America that will be the case but in places like the middle east... it will be put to the test:
