Handling Capabilities in the Range Rover Velar
If you don’t let rough roads or heavy snows get in your way, you’ll like the standard 4-wheel drive (4WD) with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics that comes standard on the 2018 Velar. This drivetrain continually optimizes torque distribution between the front and rear wheels to provide improved traction control in a variety of environments.
This SUV also includes an available Wade Sensing feature that allows the Velar to wade in up to 25.5 inches of water when necessary. In addition to tackling high waters, the Range Rover Velar can also manage any other terrain you throw its way with the standard Terrain Response® system and available Terrain Response® 2 system.
These systems allow you to choose between six different drive modes to suit your needs. These modes are:
The available Terrain Response® 2 system also monitors your driving conditions and automatically selects the appropriate drive mode.
Safety Technology Features
When you return from your adventure and merge onto the main roads, you’ll have several smart safety features to help you stay in line. The available Lane Departure Warning System, for example, issues a visual alert, as well as a steering wheel vibration, if it senses you veering from your intended lane of travel.
Available Cruise Control with Speed Limiter helps you out on long drives by allowing you to set a preferred following distance when cruise control is active. This means that, if the cars ahead of slow down or stop, your car automatically adjusts its speed to accommodate the flow of traffic.
