Review

The Range Rover Velar is a stylish, refined and seriously appealing coupé SUV. Keep to small wheels and 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.

get the best price

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

We like the 296bhp 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel for effortless performance. It may not be as outright fast as some of the petrols, but it pulls harder from low revs and is refined to boot. For everyday use, it’s definitely a great fit for the Velar.
