We have up to now shared various nuggets of information as well as images of the forthcoming Range Rover Velar. We were also fortunate in that one of our international correspondents, Damien Reid, gave you his first driving impression of the model at its international launch in Norway a few weeks ago. However, we are now happy to report that we have driven the model in SA prior to its official local introduction touted for October. Jaguar Land Rover SA (JLR SA) was, for the most part, clandestine about what we were going to drive at the SA Motoring Experience event, which took place at the Kyalami racetrack this past weekend. When we arrived at the event, we were told that there would be a surprise drive, but I never fathomed that it would be the new Range Rover Velar, particularly so soon after its international introduction.
