It has been more than 30 years since the Range Rover Velar was improved by the car company. However, as the automaker redesigned the Jaguar F-pace model, they have also made similar changes to the 1969 prototype which will be available in the market soon. In fact, it was installed with impressive tech features.

First of all, the Range Rover Velar design seemed to be similar to the Evoque. It has low greenhouse sleek lines, has luminescent lighting design which is both bold and graphical, and exudes off the present day trademark of the brand's models, reported Jalopnik. Furthermore, it has black underbody cladding which enhanced the illusion of its rear end to appear larger with synthetic leanness features.

Secondly, the side exterior design emphasized the vehicle's lower front fascia. Its interior fabric textures also appeared impressively sleek and its transmission incorporated with a rotary-knob-like item. On top of which, Car Scoops reported that the Range Rover sports crossover would be showcased at the upcoming 2017 Geneva Motor Show. In fact, the event will be the first time the model will be featured for the public eye.

On its pricing, the model will be slightly pricier than the Evoque at $65,000 or so. It was also predicted to be a tough competitor against the BMW M4, Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe models, the BMW X6, and the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coups. On the model's interior technological features, ultra-wide touch screens, an infotainment system placed by the upper console and one on the right, along with three knobs for the air-conditioning controls were installed.

Although the carmaker has kept silent about the Range Rover Velar's hardware and its performance detail, car enthusiasts predict that it may have similar characteristics to that of the Jaguar F-Pace. Furthermore, the engine was also forecasted to be either a V6 or a V8 with a muscled up SVR performance variant.
