The Range Rover Velar: spacious and sporty
The Range Rover Velar is a 5-door SUV with the comfort level of a luxury saloon and head and leg room for a family of six footers. The supercharged engine and eight speed automatic gearbox deliver the acceleration of a sports car. But all this nimbleness doesn't diminish the Velar's rugged appeal, thanks to its responsive four-wheel drive and locking rear differential that makes short work of steep gradients.
First revealed to the world at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2017, the Range Rover Velar is aimed squarely at the SUV crossover market. With its sleek looks and powerful engine, it sits somewhere between the compact Evoque and the latest version of the Range Rover Sport. It has bells and whistles to match most modern luxury cars, including rear parking sensors and two touchscreens (so that you can use one to adjust various settings while enjoying the Velar's entertainment system on the other). At the same time, it has a towing capacity of 2400-2500 kg, 632 litres of boot space, plus an interior well equipped with door bins, cup-holders and USB sockets. And if you're heading to the piste in your luxury car rental, the rear bench splits in the middle to accommodate a pair of skis.
The glory of the car, however, is what's under the hood. Depending on whether you're driving the four cylinder 2-litre or the 2-litre V6, the engine can unleash anything from 296 to 375 bhp, notching up speeds of 0 to 60 in 5.3 seconds. Whichever version you encounter on your luxury car hire, you can expect a combination of whisper quiet refinement and impressive fuel economy.

The Land Rover story
Land Rover didn't become a company until 1978, but the name dates back to three decades earlier, when the original Series 1 vehicle was masterminded by Maurice Wilks, Rover's chief designer. Its reliability quickly saw it being adopted by organisations operating in some of the most inhospitable parts of the world. In 1970, the company introduced the larger Range Rover. Early models maintained the same tough, utilitarian feeling, but 1989's mid-size Discover marked a shift upmarket. Targeted at the sporting SUV sector, the Range Rover Velar has several worthy rivals – including the BMW X4, Porsche Macan, Audi Q5 – but none can match the Velar's illustrious off-road pedigree.
