Range Rover has been building ritzy SUVs since the days of Nixon, and their traditional and evolutionary styling has never let anyone forget it. This past decade, however, the brand has ventured out from their 70's sandbox to play with new shapes and forms. One result of this was the Evoque; the other, the avant garde and profoundly elegant Velar.
Since debuting in 2017, the Velar has changed only in detail. Besides a new high-performance model - which we'll get to in a moment - this continues to be the case for 2020. A slightly revised lineup has cut last year's base model from the roster and leaves the old second-from-bottom trim, the S, as the new entry point. This means much more standard equipment - and a much higher base price.
On the other end of the scale is a new limited-edition SVAutobiography trim. Rocking a 550-horse supercharged V8 and equipped with nearly all the options on the menu, the decked-out SVA is the Beverly Hills hot rod of the lineup.
