Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

The Range Rover Velar is anything but small, so front space is generous. There’s plenty of head room and the seats go back a long way to accommodate taller drivers, with a big gap between them so you won’t be rubbing shoulders with your passenger when you both use the split centre armrests.

There are lots of storage spaces. The door bins can each take a 500ml bottle and a few oddments, and there are a couple of healthily sized cup holders behind the gear selector. There is more storage under the armrest, although it's surprisingly small.

If you try to fit three people in the rear of the Velar, the middle passenger has to straddle a small hump in the floor (it's not as annoying as the massive hump in some rivals, though). The door bins are smaller than those in the front, but are still useful.

Seat folding and flexibility

Entry-level Velar models have an eight-way manually adjustable front passenger seat, with S and SE models upgrading this to a 14-way electrically adjustable seat. R-Dynamic HSE goes one step further with 20-way adjustment.

All Velars feature a handy 40/20/40 split the rear bench so you can carry long items, such as skis or a ladder, between two passengers. With S trim you also get electrically reclining rear seats. A sliding rear bench, like the one you get in the Audi Q5Volvo XC90 and other large or luxury SUVs, isn’t available in the Velar.
