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: SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition
The SVAutobiography gets quad tailpipes, forged 21in wheels, 20-way electrically adjustable leather seats and a heated steering wheel as the range-topping trim level.
Engine: 5.0 P550
At the top of the engine range sits the 5.0-litre supercharged V8, found only in the SVAutobiography. That'll crack off 0-62mph in just 4.5sec, and you certainly notice its effect when you’re out on the road. Thanks to a responsive automatic gearbox, its power kicks in rapidly to have you shooting away from traffic lights with impressive pace.

Comfy and well built but hardly exciting
The RX is comfortable and well equipped, but it's not as good...
