2018 Range Rover Velar Earns the Distinction of "World Car Design of the Year" at 2018 World Car Awards

There isn't any one single thing that unites all Land Rover drivers—some love the Land Rover models for their off-road prowess, some love them for their incredible features, and others still for their highly refined tech—but certainly all Land Rover owners (and those who wish they owned a Land Rover vehicle) know the Land Rover lineup for its incredible beauty.

That is none so clear as at this year's New York International Auto Show, where the 2018 Range Rover Velar accepted the incredible honor of "World Car Design of the Year" from the 2018 World Car Awards.



Gerry McGovern, Chief Design Officer, Land Rover, 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 recognized the tireless endeavors 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.” —from the March 28, 2018 Lanr Rover USA Press Release

Design Highlights from the 2018 Land Rover Velar

  • Optimized proportions deliver an incredible profile and silhouette, allowing the eye to feel both full and balanced.
  • With slim, Premium LED Headlights, the Range Rover Velar creates a distinct and eye-catching front fascia with just a hint of fierceness.
  • The Velar brings a sense of modernity to the Land Rover lineup, with a plethora of cutting-edge technologies inside, like the seamlessly integrated, innovative Touch Pro Duo infotainment system that features inside.

This award is special, not simply because it designates the 2018 Range Rover Velar as the "2018 World Car Design of the Year," but because of who the 2018 Range Rover Velar had to beat out to earn that title; both the 2018 Volvo XC60 and the Lexus LC 500—two of its top competitors—were in the running for this high distinction, but it speaks to the quality and luxury of the 2018 Range Rover Velar to beat out two such strong competitors.
