Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The base SE model now comes with more standard equipment, including LED headlamps, a power-operated inner tailgate, lane-keeping assist, rear cross-traffic alert, and a new steering wheel with capacitive-touch button controls; a four-zone automatic climate-control system is now optional on the SE. The InControl Touch Pro infotainment system sees a few software updates and offers optional Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Upscale HSE and HSE Luxury models now come with a real-time wading-depth information system and a heated windshield is now available as a standalone option on all models.

Pros
Handsome square-jawed appearance,
upscale cabin,
superior off-road capability.

Cons
Thirsty gasoline engine,
clumsy on-road dynamics,
lackluster braking performance.

Available transmissions include: 8-speed shiftable automatic.A new Landmark Edition trim debuts above the base SE model.Blind-spot monitoring and upgraded mirrors are now standard.The SE trim loses standard navigation but gains Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

PROS
Smooth driving manners on the road
Above-average capabilities off-road
Interior is luxurious with excellent materials
Clever features in terms of utility and technology

CONS
Touchscreen interface can be slow and difficult to operate
Diesel engine option has little advantage over standard gas engine

“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
