EXPERT RATING
8

Range Rover will hopefully see out 2019 with a bang by introducing the Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition. Hatched at JLR's SVO skunkworks, it comes with a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 that can wake the dead and delivers a 0-100km/h time of 4.5 seconds. Engine, suspension and transmission have all been fettled to make it a road rocket.

Standard on the SVAutobiography are 21-inch forged alloys, air suspension, massaging front seats with heating and ventilation, side parking sensors, digital dash, self parking, ambient interior lighting, electric front seats, sat nav, auto high beam, LED headlights with signature DRLS, puddle lamps, a wifi hotspot with on-board SIM card slot, powered and heated folding mirrors, leather interior, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, reversing camera, keyless entry and start, front and rear parking sensors, remote app, auto LED headlights and auto wipers.

Each Velar comes with JLR's new stacked touchscreen technology, Touch Pro Duo. With two big touchscreens, one high in the dash as before and one where the dash meets the console, it allows you to spread the different functions across the two screens. Annoyingly, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are a $520 privilege for the pair.

The Velar ships with six airbags, ABS, stability and traction controls, tyre-pressure monitoring, reversing camera, lane-keep assist, forward AEB with pedestrian avoidance, reverse cross traffic alert, road sign recognition and lane-departure warning.
