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: 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.
