Range Rover Velar claims the 2018 World Car Design Award

The Velar from Range Rover has been a visual treat right since day one when it was showcased in the concept form. What’s more, it emerged as a complete charmer when viewed in flesh. So it comes as no surprise that this time around, at the 2018 New York Auto Show, the Velar has rightfully earned the 2018 World Car Design of the Year award. Interestingly, the Velar was also one among three cars shortlisted for the coveted title of World Car of the year, however, it lost it to the Volvo XC60.   

The jury panel at the World Car Award consists of 82 members who represent 24 countries. The jury members are appointed by the World Car Steering Committee. Speaking on the occasion, Prof. Dr Ralf Speth, CEO, Jaguar Land Rover, said, “The Range Rover Velar is an outstanding, superior SUV. Compelling modernity, eye-catching design, innovative Touch Pro Duo infotainment technology and a clear focus on sustainability - what a combination. This product speaks for itself.” He also thanked the Velar team for their passion and commitment.

Adding to it, Gerry McGovern, Chief Design Officer, Land Rover, said, “The continued evolution of our design philosophy is driven by a relentless focus on creating highly desirable vehicles our customers will love for life. The Range Rover Velar brings a new dimension of modernity to the Range Rover family with an abundance of innovative technologies, all making this vehicle a joy to drive and be driven in. We’re honoured that the jury recognised the tireless endeavours of our designers and engineers in delivering a vehicle with compelling design, tailored technology and relevant innovation which come together to create a vehicle of instant desirability.”

Under the hood, the Velar SUV gets three engine options – two diesel and one petrol. The 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel generates 177bhp of power, while the 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine generates 296bhp of power. The petrol version gets a four-cylinder engine that generates 247bhp of power.
