Went to a launch event for the new Range Rover Velar this evening.

Not sure about this one - the styling makes it look really long.

Range starts at about £44k but this particular model was an eye watering £84k!!

The wife and I are big LR fans (we currently have a Disco Sport and Freelander 2), but this one doesn't do it for me. A RR Sport or Jag F-Pace would take my money.

In the words of my mate who runs a RR franchise "I hope its more reliable than the rest of the range" Floor Some horror stories from him with both the discoveries and discovery sports.

My L405 has just been recalled for a new suspension and its on its second engine and turbos nooo

I still love them though and no doubt these will sell well

Re the F-Pace I was really disappointed with the finish on them so much plastic, a real step down from the RR's IMHO

I've been really impressed with SWMBO evoque with the new Jaguar engine but I specced active suspension which I think makes a big difference to the ride. Its is a fully loaded autobiography though which makes a massive difference to the cabin ie better / full leather etc...... It does feel like a small FFRR in full spec which is good but they are small compared to other SUV's in the same class especially in the rear.

The sport, I had a high spec loaner whilst my FFRR was having a new engine and compared to the FF I did not like it, yes it was sportier but its not in the same class as the Macan IMHO which is a direct comparison (whereas I don't think the KN is in the same class as FFRR)

I've only sat in the new Discovery and its erm BIG, looks a lot more like a FFRR inside but I'm not sure thats a good think as it shouldn't, it should be aimed at a different audience, lost me when I realised it no longer had a split tailgate, now the hell are you supposed to see over hedges now nooo

And dont' get me started on the disco sport, sooooo much plastic nooo

So where does the new one fit in Dont know

I saw a new Disco Sport on the M6 today nooo it looks like they have reverse engineered a Chinese " Landwind " POS and got it all wrong, have never seen an uglier car in my life Sad

Sadly my new daily isn`t going to be British at this rate nooo

I thought of this when I saw the new discovery:


The ssangyong Rodius.



Is that Velar trying to be like a BMW X6 and fill a gap in the market that doesn't actually exist?

I think they look nearly exactly the same as the Jaguar F Pace .... If I was to be buying a RR it would defiantly be the Sport. You can get a decent spec Sport for £84k!
