Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

“The Velar plugs a gap in, er, Land Rover's range of Range Rovers. It's bigger than the Evoque but smaller than the Sport ”

PROS
Achingly stylish inside and out.
Improved engines and plug-in option make the heavy-duty bits more competitive.
Relaxed and refined, yet unusually superb off-road.

CONS
Infotainment screen not quite Land Rover’s latest and greatest.
Expensive once you start speccing it

By:

The Range Rover Velar is a stylish, refined and seriously appealing coupé SUV. If you keep to small wheels, it's a comfy companion while our favoured S trim gets plenty of kit. It’s best to stick to the cheaper trims and engines – once you start moving up the range, the price rises into the realms of better-resolved cars, such as the Audi Q8 and BMW X6.

PROS
Decent economy with diesels and plug-in
Smooth and punchy D300 engine
Good off road

CONS
Average rear leg room
Wallowy handling
Some cheap plastics inside
