Land Rover Range Rover Velar 3.0 Si6 HSE R Dynamic Review
A Plush Revelation


13 Dec 2017
 

we simply love how refreshing the design 

The new Range Rover Velar fills the space between the fashionable Evoque, and the higher-end Range Rover Sport.

Designed around the principle of ‘reductionism”, the new Velar might look striking, yet simple in design. The Velar moniker was first seen in prototypes back in the late 60s, and the current car, according to Land Rover Chief Design Officer, Gerry McGovern, is the “Avant Garde” Range Rover… Whatever that means….

All we know is, we simply love how refreshing the design is, and in our lens, the second boldly-designed Range Rover after the Evoque.

The Land Rover brand has always been known for building among the best off-road capable vehicles, and as would market trends would have it, the world has seen a general shift in-favour of the SUV. Both the Land Rover and Range Rover brands are now bang-on with their product offerings, and with that demand, we are genuinely excited to see what Coventry’s best has to offer in the next few years!

In few simple, but well defined strokes, the Velar boasts a subtle rearward sloping roofline and a high waistline, delivering a quasi-coupe like appearance, while our R Dynamic HSE trim test car’s large 21”  ten spoke rims fill in those wheel arches very well. As a first, the car also gets some pretty rose gold accents on the front intakes, bonnet and between the fender and front door.

Talking about doors, they are flush with the door surface and only mechanically slide out when they need to be used. The R Dynamic trim does add more body kitting including a glossy front spoiler and some bits of kit at the rear, including a pair of large chromed exhaust finishers.
