Review

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.

S trim adds the 14-way powered front seats, leather seat trim, an upgraded 10-speaker/380-watt stereo, traffic sign recognition, a Wi-Fi hotspot, premium LED headlights, power-folding door mirrors, 19in alloy wheels and a powered tailgate, so we think it's the trim to buy.

This entry-level engine is the pick of the lineup because it's the best value. The four-cylinder diesel is impressively hushed and smooth, plus performance is more than adequate for long motorway journeys. If performance is your main concern then the D300 is the better choice, but it's also a lot more money.
