The plug-in hybrid is actually the sportiest of the Velars

The baby Evoque even adopted most of the Velar’s styling cues in its update a couple of years ago, but the Velar still looks fresh and is arguably more futuristic and sleeker than its bigger brothers, though remains as elegant as its elevated siblings.Continue reading “Range Rover Velar P400e PHEV Review”
