It’s no surprise that the premium 4x4 has taken home a prize at the What Car? Car of the Year Awards.

The luxurious and increasingly popular Range Rover Velar has taken the top spot as the Best Coupe SUV for 2020, in the price bracket of £35,000 - £60,000.

It’s become an iconic member of the Range Rover family, providing owners with state-of-the art Driver Assistance technology, the most modern Infotainment System and class-leading safety features to ensure the best driving experience possible.

What Car? declared online that: ‘You couldn't ask for a broader range of engines than that offered by the Range Rover Velar.

‘The flagship SVAutobiography model is powered by a huge 5.0-litre petrol V8 that lends it sports car-humbling performance, yet our favourite – the entry-level 2.0-litre D180 diesel – feels just as at home under the Velar’s sleek bonnet.

‘The effortless way it accelerates you up to motorway speeds is perfectly in keeping with this SUV’s relaxed demeanour, complementing a more cosseting ride than its rivals can offer.’

It seems the Velar really impressed. What Car? went on to muse about the Range Rover’s interior:

‘The Velar’s interior doesn’t let the side down, either, particularly with the standard 14-way electrically adjustable seats of our favourite S trim.

‘The driving position is spot on and there’s plenty of space in the back. There’s no disputing the high-tech wow factor of the twin touchscreens for the infotainment and climate controls, either, and rotary dials ensure key functions are still easily accessed.’

What Car? concludes:

The Range Rover Velar ‘balances style and substance without losing its grip on the realities of daily life, and our favourite engine/trim combo keeps its price down. High fashion has never been so rational.’
