Range Rover Velar P250 R-Dynamic Updated For 2021 In Malaysia
The update brings plenty of new features to the luxury SUV
The Range Rover Velar, specifically the P250 R-Dynamic guise, has been updated for the 2021 model year in Malaysia. The latest round of update sees the sleek SUV from Solihull gain interior styling updates and a host of new features.
While its exterior design appears virtually unchanged from that of the previous model year, the interior of the 2021 Velar has been spruced up a bit with the presence of a new toggle shifter and a new steering wheel design with integrated smart buttons and hands-on wheel detection feature.
Other fitted hardware includes dual 10-inch touchscreens, a 12.3-inch Interactive Driver Display, a coloured Head-up Display as well as ambience lighting. The screens provide access to Jaguar Land Rover’s Pivi Pro infotainment system, which, in addition to having customisable displays, allows users to pair up to two smartphones simultaneously.
Also new to the Velar is Active Road Noise Cancellation (ARNC) that works alongside the standard Meridian sound system, as well as a 3D surround camera. The latter helps the Velar overcome treacherous terrains by providing a three dimensional view (including a 3D perspective view plan from above and ClearSight Ground View) around the vehicle.
Another new feature that gives an additional advantage to the Velar for off-road use is Wade Sensing, which provides audio alert to warn the driver if water approaches the vehicle’s wading depth.
Perhaps the bigger news here is the inclusion of the electronic air suspension that can alter the ride height by up to 50 mm to make entering or loading heavy objects much easier. When cruising above 105 km/h, the air suspension drops by 10 mm to improve the aerodynamic drag and enhance fuel efficiency.
The 2021 Range Rover Velar 2.0L P250 R-Dynamic is priced at RM612,207.74 (without road tax and insurance, with SST exemption).
The 2021 Range Rover Velar 2.0L R-Dynamic is refreshed with an enhanced interior design, improvements to the Driver Assistance Systems, Pivi Pro – an all-new intuitive infotainment system, and several other features including an Electronic Air Suspension.
The enhanced interior of the Velar takes inspiration from analogous industries such as interior design, fashion and consumer electronics to give the new interior a significant visual uplift. Noticeable changes include a new toggle shifter and a new steering wheel design with integrated smart buttons and hands-on wheel detection feature. It also comes with a host of innovative features that enhances the experience of everyone on board, including the premium cabin lighting, 10-inch dual touch screen, a 12.3-inch Interactive Driver Display, a coloured Head-up Display and more.
Driver Assistance Systems have been upgraded with a 3D Surround Camera that provides the driver with a 3-dimensional view around the Velar which makes manoeuvring across different terrains easier –displaying several views simultaneously including a 3D perspective view plan from above and ClearSight Ground View.
Inspired by the latest mobile devices, Pivi Pro, Jaguar Land Rover’s all-new infotainment system is customisable to display information that is most relevant to the driver and can be directly accessed in two taps or less. Users can also connect two smart phones at once so driver and passenger can enjoy hands-free connectivity without having to swap connection.
Another new great feature that comes with the Velar is the Active Road Noise Cancellation (ARNC) system. It comes standard with the Meridian Sound Systems that works just like a pair of high-end noise cancellation headphones to deliver a quiet and more refined cabin experience.
The Electronic Air Suspension with an automatic access height is another update found in the 2021 Range Rover Velar. It changes the vehicle‘s height quickly to keep all four wheels on the ground, even on the most uneven surfaces. This makes entering or loading heavy objects into the Velar so much easier and convenient. The vehicle’s height can be altered by +/- 50mm to suit your needs using the 10-inch touchscreen, key fob or control buttons in the loadspace area. In addition, the air suspension’s ride height drops by 10mm to improve the aerodynamic drag thereby improving fuel efficiency when cruising above 105km/h.
Wade Sensing, which is unique to Land Rover models is now available with the 2021 Range Rover Velar. The system uses ultrasonic sensors in the exterior mirrors to visually (via the touchscreen) and audibly alert the driver if water approaches the vehicle’s wading depth.
Maintaining the same P250 powertrain, the Velar produces 249 PS and high maximum torque of 365Nm, available from 1,300rpm and 4,500rpm. Exceptional performance and efficiency come from its Ingenium powertrain, that is matched to a smooth-shifting ZF eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics.
Designed and engineered at Jaguar Land Rover’s development centres in the UK, the Velar is manufactured at the company’s Solihull production facility.
