The Velar, the avant-garde Range Rover

The Velar has landed at CVSL and we take a close look at the latest Range Rover release.
The mid-size luxury SUV was launched in March 2017 and has been available since this summer, and is now available for contract hire at CVSL.

Velar10

Design
The Velar is a refined and stylish SUV, as you would expect of Range Rover. It also has its distinctive ‘floating roof design’, which not only gives you more light inside the cabin but also makes the Velar stand out from other SUVs. We have also never been known to get excited about a car door handle, but we did with the Velar; ‘the flush deployable door handles’ means that they slide out as soon you hit the unlock button, improving efficiency. The 22-inch alloy wheels give the vehicle an elegant stance.

Interior
The Velar is the first Range Rover to offer new sustainable materials, suedecloth fibres (which are made of recycled plastic bottles).  The inside cabin is high spec, with two HD touchscreens and there is the option to include Head-up Display.  The steering wheel has hidden-until-lit switches which allow you to operate most functions without getting distracted.

Load space
The boot space of the Velar (632 litre capacity) is spacious in comparison with rival SUVS such as the BMW X6 and the Porsche Macan. If you drop the rear seats it will give you 1731 litres of space. More than enough space for the weekly shop!

Driving performance
With two 3.0 litre V6 engines, the Velar will give you a comfortable driving experience both on and off the road. The vehicle is also equipped with Adaptive Dynamics and optional Electronic Air Suspension giving you a smooth ride over bumps. It also has permanent All Wheel Drive systems giving you all-weather and surface capability.

  1. Knowledge – we have been leasing for over 30+ years.
  2. Expertise – we will give you extensive insight on the Velar.

To Infiniti and Beyond….

The Infiniti Q30 is a premium car that combines the sportiness of a coupe and the empowered stance of a crossover. Released to the UK market in 2016, the Q30 is gaining popularity due to it being manufactured to high standards, with the engine and interior having similarities to the much more expensive Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

The exterior grille-to-rear deep sculpted lines and sharp interior trim give the Q30 a stylish, upmarket feel.
The premium model comes with Infiniti’s own Intouch , a user-friendly built-in GPS system as well as dual zone climate control  and a Lane Departure Warning System, a handy gadget that will warn you if you are drifting in your lane, keeping you safe on the road.

The diesel engine has been designed to be as efficient as possible without compromising on acceleration, offering a smooth drive with quick response to throttle.

Overall, the Infiniti Q30 is an excellent vehicle that competes with rivals such as the Nissan Qashqai and Renault Kadjar, offering high specs for a great price, making this a very competitive model on the market.

If you are looking to get a Q30, you are in luck as we currently have a special offer on the Infiniti Q30 Premium. Get in touch today for more information.

Looking to lease a new van? Here are some things to consider…

By only considering an initial quote, you could find what seems to be a cheap option quickly becomes one of the most expensive. Take the time to investigate the following factors to make sure that you really are choosing the best van for you.

  1. Service interval. How far will your van go before it’s going to cost you money? Most vans will make it to around 25,000 miles before they need servicing, but there are some that can manage 30,000 miles before you may need to pay a visit to the garage. Doing your research before choosing a van will save you money in the long run.
  1. Service costs. When your van does need a service, how much is that going to cost you? Even if you don’t plan on having maintenance included in your lease contract, get a quote done anyway. Quotes are based on predicted mileage and predicted costs over the term, so can be quite telling as to when the cheapest van has the potential to turn into the most expensive.
  1. How far is your fuel going to go? If your mileage is high, this factor could well outweigh the initial leasing charges. For example, a newer model might cost more than previous versions, but at 10% better efficiency it will swiftly make up for that in fuel costs.

Everyone’s situation is different and it may well be that the cheapest headline quote ends up being the cheapest option for you. But it’s only when you investigate all the factors that you really get the true picture of how much your van is going to cost you in the long run.

Here at CVSL we guarantee our clients that we not only offer competitive prices but also good and honest advise on your fleet, which will keep your company’s books healthy. Get in touch today for more information.
