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.

get the best price

Trim: R-Dynamic S

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

Engine: 2.0 P300

The P300 is punchy but requires plenty of revs before it really gets going. Rev it hard, though, and you won't find it very economical. It's better to stick to a diesel as a result.
