ACTIVE REAR LOCKING DIFFERENTIAL
Active Rear Locking Differential1 offers the additional benefit of more traction on corners and more grip off-road. It does so by controlling the slip between the left and right wheels on the rear axle.
LOW TRACTION LAUNCH
On slippery surfaces, such as grass and snow, torque can be balanced between the front and rear wheels to maximise traction. In extreme conditions where only the front wheels have traction, up to 100 percent of engine torque can be distributed to the front wheels for optimum grip.
ELECTRONIC AIR SUSPENSION
A competent, composed drive is enhanced by the latest optional four-corner Electronic Air Suspension2 providing exceptional wheel articulation and poise. Capable of taking on tough situations, this system keeps Range Rover Velar stable no matter how rough the terrain. For increased ride quality, it switches heights seamlessly when necessary.
Standard on Range Rover Velar models, our unique Terrain Response systems enable the driver to optimise the vehicle’s engine, gearbox, centre differential and chassis systems to match the demands of the terrain, by selecting one of the easily identifiable driving modes. Terrain Response 2 is an option that takes the capabilities of the award-winning system to a new level. This features an automatic setting which monitors the current driving conditions and systematically selects the most suitable terrain setting.
ADVANCED TOW ASSIST
Optional Advanced Tow Assist allows you to control the direction of your trailer when reversing. Using the Terrain Response 2 reconfigurable rotary dial via the Touch Pro controls, the system controls the vehicle's steering to achieve the desired trailer trajectory, as displayed on the Touchscreen.
HILL DESCENT CONTROL
Land Rover's patented Hill Descent Control (HDC) technology assists the driver with controlled descents of difficult slopes. It does so by maintaining a constant speed and applying braking separately to each wheel. Hill Start Assist, which comes as standard, ensures the vehicle doesn't roll backwards as it pulls away on an incline.
