    2018 Range Rover Velar Fully Revealed In New Photos

    A full set of images showing Land Roverís new Range Rover Velar sports crossover have made their way online, courtesy of Diariomotor, ahead of a Geneva Motor Show world premiere in a weekís time.

    The Velar was made to fill the gap between the most affordable Range Rover, the Evoque, which starts from around $41,000, and the Sport that can be had from $65,000 and upwards.

    Our guess is that, beyond the Porsche Macan, Land Rover will potentially try to steal buyers from both the upper end of the BMW X4 and Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe lineups, as well as the BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupes.

    The new gallery that follows Land Roverís single teaser photo last week, shows a familiar exterior styling with influences from both the Evoque (especially up front) and the Sport (the rest of the body), albeit with more rounded and softer lines, as well as a more rakish roof than either one.

    You can see how the Velarís profile compares to the other Land and Range Rover models after the gallery.

    Inside, while sporting similar lines to the other Range Rover models, the Velar progresses the brandís design further introducing two ultra-wide touch screens, one for the infotainment system in the upper console and another placed right under. The lower console display appears to retain three physical knobs for the air-conditioning controls.

    Nothing official about the Range Rover Velarís hardware has made it out yet, but we know that itís closely related to the Jaguar F-Pace, being built on the same IQ platform, with V6 and possibly, V8 engines to be on the menu cumulating with a muscled up SVR performance variant.

    I think it looks great. I just hope that its not an x4 rival. I want it to be bigger with a v8 option.

    The V8 fits, so does the I6

    Nice to see the adopted Camaro's ambient lighting and Escala's cloth interior ideas..

    gee they have dug in to the history books for the name. The first Range Rovers were badged as Velars during their road testing prior to release (1969 I think). Those particular vehicles are sort after. This one looks like it may be too. I quite like it as far as trucks go.

    Why the emphasis on the "Coupe" niche of the crossover space? This doesn't even try to pretend to pay lip service to being a coupe.

    I like the interior a lot. The exterior, however, doesn't really move the needle on the current design theme.

    That's Range Rover's take on a SUV coupe - Jaguar has a more conventional take

    I don't think RR has ever said that it's a "coupe."
    I think it's just meant to be more "sleek."
    Most people seem to think nowadays that if something is "sleeker" than normal, it's meant to be a "coupe."

    The exterior doesn't really move the needle a lot, but it's a nice evolution of a sleeker design, as is the interior. Seems like they took a few pages from Volvo in the overall design too, while keeping with the over all RR design and evolving it.

    The pricing is also perfect.

    The UK motoring press has labelled it a coupe, not that it counts for much.

    It was originally thought that it was to be a sort of "Range Rover Sport coupe."

    But since then, it's been realized (and announced) that it's just a smaller SUV to slot between the Evoque and Range Rover Sport, not intended to be an SUV coupe like X6, GLE coupe, etc.
