Range Rover Velar Is A Very Capable Vehicle



What’s an Irish journalist to do when given a Range Rover Velar to test drive? Why, take it to the fjords and mountains of Norway of course! Most Range Rover Velars will never see a muddy trail or cross a river, but if there’s ever a need, do know that it’s more than capable of handling whatever you throw at it within reason of course.


Spanning over 200km, the Velar first had to go off-road through a deserted mountain pass at Tresfjord. On a road riddled with bumps and a few potholes, the SUV handled sharp turns effortlessly whilst providing passengers with a comfortable ride in its luxurious cabin. Meant to be yacht-inspired, drivers will find twin rotary dials, JLR’s new Touch Pro Duo infotainment system, a HUD and more. Such features most likely made their ferry ride across the Storfjorden feel short.

At their next location, the Velar tackled a ski slope near Stranda in gravel/sand/snow mode, drove over slippery surfaces, took on steep inclines and it managed to reach 3,500 feet in elevation before slowly descending the mountain with hill descent control activated.

Of course, no test is complete without trudging through a fast-flowing river as the Velar was designed to go through water up to 650mm in depth without leaking.

Talking about it is one thing but they need to show it in action much like what they did with the Evoque which was put through a lot of impressive testing, beyond what any of its typical owners will do.
