Review

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.

Trim: R-Dynamic Black

Adding the Black Pack to R-Dynamic trim adds a Narvik Black grille with bonnet vents, plus black 'Range Rover' badging to the already sporty looks.

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.
