Range Rover Velar scores 5 star ANCAP rating

Following its five-star Euro NCAP rating, ANCAP has followed suit with the recently launched Range Rover Velar.

THE RANGE ROVER VELAR launched here last month has been awarded a five-star ANCAP rating to match its Euro NCAP rating. It joins the Land Rover Discovery and Discovery Sport with five-star ratings.

“The Velar arrives to our market with strong all-round safety performance resulting in a 5 star ANCAP safety rating,” said ANCAP Chief Executive Officer, James Goodwin.

“Autonomous emergency braking is provided as a standard feature on the Velar, and it operates effectively at high and low-speeds, and can detect and react to pedestrians.”

According to Euro NCAP results, the Velar saw ‘Good’ levels of protection offered to occupants in the side impact test. “Maximum points were scored for adult occupants in these two lateral crash tests, and child occupant protection – which looks at the protection offered for a 6-year-old and 10-year-old child – was also good,” Goodwin added.
