If you think the Velar looks like a show car from the outside, you should see inside it.
Again, it’s a natural, logical progression from other Range Rovers, but one that has resulted in one of the most striking interiors to step out of a British car factory.
In HSE specification, you get practically all you see here as standard, bar a £930 head-up display and £2225 of rear-seat entertainment, and we’d probably live without both.
Certainly, you won’t feel short-changed when it comes to screens to look at. There’s a fully digitised instrument panel, with two touchscreens, on the centre console, whose graphical resolution and functionality mark serious improvements on those used on other JLR models.
The Velar gets a multimedia system all new to Jaguar Land Rover and it’s finally one that should fear nothing offered by any rival.
Key to it is its intuitiveness. Granted, there are a few idiosyncracies, but once you’re attuned to its ways, it’s as straightforward as you’ll find in, say, a Mercedes-Benz.
