The Range Rover Velar has received a host of new features to make it more appealing. The 2022 Range Rover Velar isn’t a facelift, though, just a feature-packed version of the original design.
The Range Rover Velar broke cover nearly three and half years ago, but its timeless design has kept it attractive and fresh. The MY2022 update builds on that with new equipment. Land Rover offers two new paint options: Ostuni Pearl White (replacement for Yulong White) and Lantau Bronze. Moreover, the SV Bespoke Premium Palette and Match To Sample service are available for the Velar. So, customers can order their SUV in specially developed colors, such as Tourmaline Brown (pictured below), and a wide range of finishes such as satin and ultra-metallic. The MY2022 update has brought new wheel designs in two finishes as well.
A new Cabin Air Purification Plus air filter ensures that the occupants breathe clean air. It can filter ultrafine particulates up to PM2.5 and even below. Purify Cycle is another new air quality feature in the 2022 Velar. Customers can set a departure time, and the vehicle would automatically schedule a cabin air clean-up before that time. They can monitor the air quality outside and inside the vehicle anytime.
The Pivi and Pivi Pro infotainment systems of the 2022 Velar will receive wireless Apple CarPlay and wireless Android Auto compatibility with an OTA software update later this year.
The 2022 Range Rover Velar has a new backup camera, which offers improved visibility when reversing. Land Rover has placed it above the rear registration plate. The new backup camera is a standard fitment, and it gives three views: Rear Junction View (180° wide-angle view), Reverse View, and Hitch Assist.
Also new in the ADAS department are Adaptive Cruise Control with Steering Assist and Park Assist Pack. The latter includes the 3D Surround Camera (360-degree camera/around view monitor) and Park Assist (automated parking).
Variants & Specifications
The 2022 Range Rover Velar’s range includes a new Auric Edition based on the R-Dynamic S trim, but the engine variants and specs are the same.
The 2022 Range Rover Velar Auric Edition flaunts exclusive design elements, including special Auric Atlas exterior trim finishes on the grille, badges, bonnet, door, and front fender vents, distinctive 20-inch Gloss Sparkle Silver alloy wheels, and privacy glass. Customers can upgrade to 22-inch Pincer wheels and a contrast roof optionally. Charente Grey, Ostuni Pearl White, and Santorini Black are the color options, of which the gray shade is exclusive to this special edition model.
