Auric Edition joins streamlined Range Rover Velar range

The line-up has been cut from 19 to 13 models, with the powertrain choices remaining unchanged.

Changes to the Velar Auric Edition are largely cosmetic.

Having detailed the facelift Range Rover Velar less than three months ago, Jaguar-Land Rover (JLR) has revised the local line-up with the addition of a new limited edition model and removal of certain trim levels.

Cutting the range from 19 to 13 models, the previous SE R-Dynamic, Landmark and HSE R-Dynamic models depart in favour of three trim grades; S, S R-Dynamic and the new Auric Edition.

Based on the S R-Dynamic, the Auric Edition is the work of JLR’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division and takes its name from the Latin word for gold, “aurum”, with the moniker making reference to the auric grey finishes on the side vents, on the doors and bonnet, grille and badges.

Mounted on 20-inch gloss mercurial sparkle silver alloy wheels with the option of upgrading to the 22-inch pincer wheels, the Auric debuts a new model exclusive colour called Charente Grey, as well as three hues developed by the SV Bespoke division: Amethyst-Grey Purple, Tourmaline Brown and Petrolix Blue.

Despite no changes being applied inside where the 11.6-inch Pivi Pro infotainment comes as standard across the range, the only other exterior change is the replacing of Yulong White with Ostuni Pearl White and availability of Lantau Bronze on all models. Also kept unchanged are the powertrain options and features.
