The Velar is a stylish, refined and seriously appealing Coupe SUV. It’s best to stick to the cheaper engines – including the award-winning D180 – and trims, though; once you start moving farther up the range it pushes the price into the realms of better-resolved cars, such as the Audi Q8 and BMW X6.get the best price
Trim: RANGE ROVER VELAR
The entry-level model gets a twin-screen touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth, a DAB radio, Apple CarPlay/ Andoid Auto. Other luxuries include keyless entry, 18in alloy wheels, heated front seats, front and rear parking sensors and a rear-view camera. It's well worth considering because it keeps the costs down and you still get a great car.
Engine: 2.0 D180
This is our pick. It's the D180 2.0-litre diesel with 187bhp, and while its 0-62mph time of 8.9sec won't get you foaming at the mouth, it's solid enough in the mid-range to get you going easily in town or on the motorway. And as we'll discuss later on in this review, factor in the purchase price and running costs, and it makes a lot of sense if you're not a speed freak. It also has the best economy in the Velar range, and we managed over 35mpg through town with ease. Being a four-cylinder diesel it can be a little grumbly around at low speeds but quietens down on the motorway.
Loads of space but limited to five seats; far less...
The Land Rover Discovery is hugely capable and very desirable...
Comfy and well built but hardly exciting
The RX is comfortable and well equipped, but it's not as good...
