Range Rover are proud to announce they have received the title of the most beautifully designed vehicle on the planet, winning the World Car Design of the Year title at the 2018 World Car Awards for their new Range Rover Velar.


Range Rover describe their new family member as achieving ‘glamour, modernity and elegance’ offering an exclusive combination of design excellence and engineering integrity.

Jaguar Land Rover CEO, Dr Ralf Speth, 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. F TYPE, Evoque, F PACE and now the Range Rover Velar wins the World Car of the Year design award. This means a lot to us. I feel very honoured and I want to thank all jury members for their trust and support in encouraging the Land Rover team to continue on their unique path. I also want to thank our Velar team for their passion and commitment, for going the extra mile to move boundaries for extraordinary solutions.”

Chief Design Officer at Land Rover Gerry McGovern 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.”

This 4x4 is luxurious and eclipsed the Volvo XC60 and the Lexus LC 500 to take the World Car Design of the Year award, as voted for by the World Car Awards jury which was made up of 82 influential motoring journalists from 24 countries.

The Velar was created to fit between the Range Rover Evoque and Range Rover Sport and its success follows the 2017 double win for the Jaguar F-PACE. Launched last year and named after the codename for the original concept Range Rovers of the late 1960s, it comes in a choice of six powertrains, ranging from the clean and responsive 180HP 2.0 litre Ingenium diesel to the potent 380HP supercharged 3.0 litre V6 petrol engine.

Designed, engineered and produced in the UK, the Velar delivers high levels of practicality, connectivity and capability along with the most advanced technology and the inclusion of more sustainable materials, this luxury 4x4 is designed to go Above and Beyond.

The Range Rover velar is available to hire from Range Rover Hire London UK.
