Released just over 1 year ago, Range Rover Velar has attracted full attention from Land Rover fans. Velar prices in Nigeria are updated as below.
1. The launch of Range Rover Velar
Velar, whose exact name must be Land Rover Range Rover Velar, was rolled out in March 2017 in its home market.
This compact luxury crossover SUV by Jaguar Land Rover is the fourth model in the lineup of Range Rover vehicles besides first-gen Rover, Range Rover Evoque and Range Rover Sport.
Range Rover Velar is a sub-brand of Range Rover line
Velar was named after a series of pre-production version for the very first Range Rovers 50 years ago.
Introduced by British Leyland in 1970, first-gen Range Rovers were built from the collective strengths of 26 Velar engineering development vehicles. The name Velar was then explained as “to veil” or “to cover,” hinting at the later release of Range Rover product line.
2. Range Rover Velar prices in Nigeria (brand new & tokunbo car prices)
Fresh and energetic, Range Rover Velar is in its high time of sales worldwide. It’s easy to order a brand new model from international Land Rover dealerships. However, this also means the prices of Range Rover Velar in Nigeria won’t be budget-friendly at all.
Prices of brand new Velar given below do not include delivery cost or any customs tariffs if any to get the car shipped right to your garage.
Should we spare-a-few year salary to take one Velar home?
The all-new Velar is influenced by the styling design of both classical and modern products from the same luxury brand, particularly the Evoque and Range Rover Sport.
Velar inherits certain styling cues from its corporate cousins
However, to enhance its aesthetic values, Velar features sleeker lines while still highlighting the sporty look.
Sharing certain similarities with its Jaguar brothers – Jaguar F-Pace, XF or XE, Range Rover Velar boasts aluminium platform with a 2,874 mm wheelbase. This means it is even 72 mm longer than the F-Pace.
The Range Rover Velar has been crowned the most beautifully designed vehicle on the planet, winning the World Car Design of the Year title at the 2018 World Car Awards.
Unlike its outside appearance, the inner design of Velar bears much resemblance to that of Jaguar I-Pace with 3 touchscreens taking control over almost all interior features.
The cockpit of this luxury vehicle is also adapted to be more driver-focused whereas the seating is lowered to boost the car sportiness as well as performance on road.
Rather than a rugged off-road SUV, Range Rover Velar gives out a more graceful vibe
3.3. Range Rover Velar performance
Regarding its powertrain options, this all-wheel-drive vehicle employs 4-cylinder twin-turbo diesel and turbocharged or supercharged petrol engines, staying in line with Jaguar Land Rover’s Ingenium. Six-cylinder engines are also offered as in other Jaguar cars.
All types of I4 or V6 engines are mated to different configurations of the ZF 8-speed automatic transmission.

Once you start driving the new Land Rover Range Rover Velar, it becomes obvious that this compact luxury SUV is a new breed of Land Rover. It sits lower than other Range Rover models and takes corners better, with quick steering and graceful handling over undulating roads. But the ride transmits nearly every bump to the cabin, and it can get jittery on rough surfaces.

I have only had this car for a couple of days but already love it so much! It is luxury on wheels and couldn’t imagine driving anything else. Love the panoramic sunroof and the ease of programming everything. Love this car!

I decided to lease a Velar SE Dynamic-R about 2 months ago. The look of the vehicle really got me. So far I have had zero issues with it as you would expect with it being so new. I was initially concerned about going with the 4-cylinder engine after only having V8s for the past 10 years but the turbo and power from the 4-cylinder were very impressive and adequate for me. The digital screens in the dash and console are amazing […] I really only have one complaint so far and that is with the Auto Start/Stop feature. It is defaulted to be on every time you start the car and I have to go into the menu and turn it off every time I get into drive. […] The red with the black interior and black out kit on the outside with the 21 inch wheels really stands out from the crowd.

The Velar’s first priority isn’t fuel-economy, even though this may be the first Range Rover in history that doesn’t share aerodynamic properties with an M1 Abrams tank.
Most shoppers will consider the V-6-powered Range Rover Velar, which is rated by the EPA at 18 mpg city, 24 highway, 20 combined. That’s good enough for a 6 out of 10 on our scale, although it’s possible to do better. Gas powered turbo-4 models are rated higher: 21/27/23 mpg. Turbodiesel models are the most efficient, but least popular. The EPA rates those at 26/30/28 mpg.
Opt for a red Velar if you’re a high-maintenance driver!

Our Velar came with paint distortions which took the dealership 3 visits to finally get resolved. We were promised that the car had voice activated navigation however very soon after taking delivery it did not have voice activated navigation. The car is equipped but Land Rover has not provided the software to make it work. You have to type on a screen in order to hopefully find the address you're looking for. Finally after two months a new software release was installed which provided "Go Home", "Cancel", "Navigate to previous destination", that's it. The car is beautiful, it's strong, and with the 380hp engine it really moves. We are hoping to get voice activated navigation, we use that a lot.
It’s time to make your choice now!
