“That’s an ugly Land Rover,” said no one ever. Land Rover doesn’t do ugly. Never has. The designs of its Land Rover and Range Rover luxury suvs are renowned around the globe, and Gerry McGovern, who became the design director at Land Rover in 2004, has overseen the luxury brands ascension to style icon. The 2019 Range Rover Velar may be his masterpiece.
Land Rover calls the design of the 2019 Range Rover Velar avant-garde, and last year this stunning SUV was judged to be the most beautiful vehicle on the planet, winning the World Car Design of the Year title. But the Velar is so much more than just a pretty face. The five-passenger SUV is also refined, family-friendly, and fun to drive. It’s built in the UK and competes against a long list of popular, high-quality luxury SUVs including the BMW X3, Porsche Macan, Volvo XC60, Audi Q5, and Mercedes-Benz GLC.
