Well spotted and snapped!

I was just thinking the opposite to you, though. From that rear three-quarter view, I don't like it. The profile behind the 'C' pillar is odd, I can't see why they curved the window surround down instead of carrying the line on, and it's really noticeable without a black roof. The back end looks too 'lifted up' as well, in my opinion.

Agree with donny, rear quarter and spoiler junction just looks wrong... why not continue the black line straight across where it meets the spoiler rather than heading up at 90 degrees?

Also what height is the loadfloor ? Seems awfully high! Loading shopping or dogs etc could be quite hard.... RRS 2008 HSE in Java Black

The load floor has probably been raised to accommodate the 3 batteries that it will be equipped with to cope with electrical demand!!!!!

I thought that's what the mile long pair of jump leads was for... and also for reaching a charging point when every bu**er has parked in front of it ! RRS 2008 HSE in Java Black

2013 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Stornoway Grey

With the big C&D pillars one Land Rover philosophy has been blown out of the water with the Velar............. Land Rover supposedly designs cars that you can see all four corners/ extremities of the car from the driver's seat. I doubt that will apply to the Velar and reversing / surround cams and Blind Spot monitoring will be must have extras to get around the blind spots from the A pillar/ mirror area and the C/D pillars. 2015MY Corris Grey SDv6 HSE Dynamic, preceeded by a 2.7SE RRS, a 3.6TDv8 RRS, several FFRR's and 2 Evoques.

I caught a glimpse of the Velar article in What Car in the supermarket (quite a long glimpse actually! Wink ) and it was interesting to see that they describe it as the Evoque's bigger brother, or words to that effect. That puts it in its place in the range!

S'funny but to me the Velar is the RRS for people who don't want the off road gubbins. It's more RRS-lite than Evoque-XL to my mind. With air suspension and a decent output engine, it will make the RRS look a bit pointless.

Other than the horrible rear quarter light detail I think it's not a bad looking vehicle. Better than the early "scoop" shots suggested. Shame it also has the silly Evoque/RRS fake plastic bonnet vents. I wonder if the FFRR will get those next time around too... Big Cry 2012 SDV6
