V6 models get an optional locking rear differential, and the infotainment system's rotary controller can be used to back the vehicle up when a trailer is attached.

There's also a First Edition variant, which is limited to 500 units and packs more luxury than any other trim, but its price tag is a whopping $89,300. (Velar's base price is $49,900.)
