Gaining yet another feather for the major plumage in its cap, the new Range Rover Velar is named a 5-star car in EuroNCAP latest crash tests. The luxury SUV achieved such high scores in every test, the NCAP are calling it one of the safest SUVs they have ever tested.
The Velar scored 93% for adult occupant protection, 85% for child occupant protection and 74% for pedestrian protection. That is partly due to the design of the car which had crash protection in mind from the very beginning, and partly because of all the advanced safety systems the SUV boasts. The NCAP testers were particularly happy with the Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, a demonstration of which can be seen in the video below:
Euro NCAP’s findings state: “Tests of the autonomous emergency braking system at highway speeds demonstrated good performance, with collisions avoided or mitigated in all tests. In both the side barrier test and the more severe side pole impact, protection of all critical body areas was good and the Range Rover Velar scored maximum points.”
So luxury, style, prestige, and now safety. Range Rover Velar seems to have it all. And the best thing about this car is, it’s not even the most expensive Range Rover. The Velar makes both the Vogue and the Sport look rather pointless really. We don’t know what JLR was thinking when they green-lighted this model.
Velar’s advanced driver assistance systems include:
