Review

The Velar has its faults but is a stylish, refined and seriously appealing SUV. It’s best to stick to the cheaper engines and trims, though; once you start moving farther up the range the price pushes into the realms of better-resolved cars, such as the Audi Q8 and BMW X6.

Trim: R-Dynamic

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

Engine: 3.0 D300

We like the 296bhp 3.0-litre V6 diesel for effortless performance. It may not be as outright fast as some of the petrols, but it pulls harder from low revs and can still officially manage 0-62mph in a hot hatch-rivalling 6.7sec. For everyday use, it’s definitely a good fit for the Velar.
