Range Rover Velar HST Edition launched Bedford News

Range Rover has updated its Velar SUV with three new variants, including two new high-performance HST models.

Following the Evoque and Range Rover Sport, the Velar is the latest model to get the HST treatment, which offers a choice of two mild-hybrid six-cylinder engines and a host of styling and technology upgrades.

At the same time, Range Rover is reintroducing the Velar edition to sit lower in the range.

The Velar HST is now on sale with a choice of 3.0-litre straight-six petrol or diesel engines, both featuring mild-hybrid technology.

The range-topping P400 HST features a turbocharged gasoline that delivers 395 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque, enough to take the Velar from 0-60 mph in a brisk 5.2 seconds. The P300 HST uses a twin-turbocharged diesel to produce 296 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque, and will cover the 0-60 mph sprint in 6.1 seconds. Both engines have also recently been added to the associated Jaguar F-Pace range.

As in the Jaguar, both Ingenium engines feature a mild-hybrid system to aid performance and economy. The integrated belt-driven starter-alternator replaces a traditional alternator and recovers braking energy to give the engine a little boost during acceleration and to help the start-stop system.

Both HST models also come standard with electronic adaptive air suspension, as well as all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission.

HST models are distinguished from the R-Dynamic range on which they are based by a black contrast roof and a comprehensive Black Exterior Pack, including 21-inch gloss black alloys. Buyers can choose from the regular Velar color palette or opt for the exclusive Arroios Grey.

Inside, all HST models feature black suedecloth headlining and steering wheel and a sliding panoramic roof.

Prices for the Velar P300 HST start at £69,865 while the P400 HST sits at the top of the Velar range and costs from £73,815.

Range Rover has also revived the mid-range Velar edition. Based on the R-Dynamic SE, the Special Edition is now available with the full Velar paint scheme and, like the HST, features a black contrast roof, Black Pack exterior details, sliding panoramic roof and side panels. a privacy glass with a 20-inch gloss black alloys.

Velar Edition is available with D200 or P250 transmissions, both of which include all-wheel drive and automatic transmission. The 200hp 2.0-litre diesel version costs from £61,005 while the 246hp 2.0-litre petrol version starts at £62,020.
