Range Rover Velar has been awarded a 5-star

The Range Rover Velar has been awarded a 5-star crash protection rating from safety body Euro NCAP, ranking it among the safest SUVs on the market today.

Scoring 93% for adult occupant protection, 85% for child occupant protection, 74% for pedestrian protection and 72% for assistance systems, the Velar beats its Land Rover stablemate, the Discovery, in overall score.

In its segment, however, it’s topped by the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, which scored 97% for adult occupant protection and 84% in child occupant protection, but the Velar beats the Italian car in the pedestrian and assistance categories by three and 12 percentage points respectively.

Its adult and child occupant protection scores match those of the Audi Q5 but beats the latter’s 73% pedestrian protection and 58% assistance system scores. The Velar even beats the Volvo XC90’s 72% pedestrian protection score – the XC90 famously being the safest car Euro NCAP has ever tested.

The Velar scored five stars across all variants; Euro NCAP recently introduced a two-tier score system, with one score for cars in their standard form and another for the same car with optional safety equipment fitted.

Jaguar Land Rover’s UK managing director, Jeremy Hicks, said: “For Velar customers, only the best is good enough and we are delighted the fourth Range Rover has been awarded five-star safety credentials. This, combined with excellent residual values and stunning design, really set Velar out as a car that appeals to the heart and the head.”
