Designed to plug the gap between the Evoque and the Sport, the Velar does so with real panache. It might have familiar features, but they’ve been honed, elongated and smoothed out until the resulting design is a real showstopper. With similar underpinnings to the Jaguar F-Pace, it drives more like a sports saloon than an SUV too, with excellent steering and poise. The Velar ushered in Land Rover’s new dual-screen infotainment system and perfectly blends the feel of new technology with traditional fittings.
