With a roofline that's lower but almost the same length as the Range Rover Sport, the Velar has been bestowed with a long, sleek design peppered with a number of smart looking exterior design touches. It’s hard not to look away with impressive design from whatever angle you happen to be taking it in from. It's a far cry from the generic SUV box-on-wheels designs of old.
Our test car also came with R-Dynamic body styling that adds air intakes at the front, the vents in the bonnet and the 'Burnished Copper' design flourishes.
Upon unlocking the Velar, the door handles, which sit flush against the door panels when locked, magically emerge to greet you. The cabin presents another excellent example of Range Rover luxury, featuring high quality materials and finishes throughout.
The massive panoramic glass roof ($3550) is a pricey option, but gives the feeling of light and space throughout the cabin.
