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.

Trim: S

S trim has a slightly higher resale value that, in part, offsets the extra initial outlay. It also adds the 14-way powered front seats, leather seat trim, an upgraded 10-speaker/ 380-watt stereo, traffic sign recognition, a Wi-Fi hotspot, in-built sat-nav, premium LED headlights, power-folding door mirrors, 19in alloy wheels and a powered tailgate, so we think it's the trim to buy.

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.
