Velar features a reductive design emphasised with beautifully integrated digital screens that are fitted with Land Rover’s state-of-the-art infotainment system, Pivi and Pivi Pro.

Pivi is designed around ease of use, with a simple interface reducing the number of interactions to enhance safety. Crisp graphics and super-fast responsiveness are enabled with an advanced electrical architecture under the surface, ensuring the screens and navigation system are ready to go in seconds, thanks also to a dedicated power source.

The entire Range Rover Velar range has been enhanced to deliver the most rewarding and refined driving experience. Active Road Noise Cancellation** technology is accompanied by Cabin Air Purification Plus which optimises interior air quality, and the expanded Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) now include Rear Camera as standard and Adaptive Cruise Control with Steering Assist.

The experience inside the Range Rover Velar is an even calmer sanctuary enhanced by Active Road Noise Cancellation. The intelligent technology works like a pair of high-end noise cancellation headphones, constantly monitoring vibrations from the road surface and calculating the opposite phase sound wave needed to remove the noise heard by the occupants. The effect is subtle, but the minimum reduction of four decibels ensures an even more refined and calming interior space.

Cabin Air Purification Plus for Land Rover offers improved air quality for all occupants. Building on the existing Cabin Air Ionisation with PM2.5 filtration.
