Range Rover Velar Gains 542HP SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition

Enhanced by Jaguar Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations department, the Velar has been overhauled in order to offer a more dynamic drive than its more conventionally-powered stablemates.

Land Rover calls this the most handsome mid-size SUV ever made, and we're liable to agree. The engine motivates the SUV to crack the 0-60 miles per hour sprint in 4.3 seconds before it reaches a top speed of 170 miles per hour.

The Land Rover skunkworks tweaked the exterior styling to clue onlookers into its increased performance. The set-up can direct as much as 100 per cent to the rear depending on the conditions.

There's also a revamped Dynamic drive mode, again to take advantage of the bigger engine.

Uprated brakes and suspension components, plus bespoke settings for everything from the powertrain to the safety systems, ensure the SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition mixes the personality of a performance vehicle with the go-anywhere capability of a luxury mid-size SUV. For the ears, meanwhile, a new SV Variable Active Exhaust System adds valves to the exhaust system, adjusting the tailpipe sound; it also pays dividends in cutting weight by over 15 pounds and increasing gas flow for better performance. What's more, it's not just the eyes that get a treat. Land Rover will also offer Dynamic Edition in Satin Byron Blue-the only Velar model to feature the color. The grille is new, too, and there are new lower side moldings. Underneath the SUV, a transmission tunnel undertray helps the cut through the air more efficiently. Range Rover lettering is enhanced on the mid size SUV.

The Range Rover Velar SVA Dynamic Edition sits on 21-inch wheels, which weigh the same as the standard SUV's 20-inch wheels. Red brake calipers (four-piston at the front, sliding at the rear) are hard to miss.

The standard specification is generous and includes 20-way adjustable heated and cooled front seats with memory and massage functions, 12.3-inch Interactive Driver Display with a bespoke SVAutobiography Dynamic start-up screen, and more. Sporting changes to the cabin include a new steering wheel with aluminium flappy paddles, metal tread plates and an optional carbon fibre trim pack. The InControl Touch Pro Duo infotainment system gets knurled finish dials.

In short, it's the Velar that many hoped the original SUV would be. "The new Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition amplifies the highly desirable nature of the 2018 World Car Design victor by introducing a compelling combination of heightened performance and luxury".

Until the red-blooded Velar SVR arrives, probably sometime later this year, the SVAutobiography will also be quickest auto of the line-up, hitting 62mph in 4.5 seconds.

Sadly there's also a downside.
