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.

R-Dynamic pack brings dark wheels and sportier looks inside and out, including swish, satin-chrome gearshifters and metal pedals to the SE trim.

You need to work this entry-level petrol fairly hard but it’s brisk enough when you do. We’d suggest the stronger low-down shove of the diesels makes them a better bet, though.
