There comes a time, in every lucky woman’s life, where she gets to drive the brand new Range Rover. For a whole week. This was my first foray into Rangey territory, and I got to test the new model, the Velar which is bigger than the Evoque, but smaller than the Sport.
With so much going on at home - Christmas coming, the school term finishing, plus playdates, ballet concerts and swimming lessons coming out of my ears, I decided this week I needed to focus on me - to get healthy and re-energise for the busy weeks to come. And I had the Range Rover Velar for the challenge.
It was, quite simply, a pleasure to drive. Smooth and so so quiet, with an incredible 17 speakers so you can literally have a party in the car. I was stuck in traffic directly under the flight path where the planes are so low it feels like they’re flying through the trees, but all I had to do was shut the windows, turn the music up a bit and it honestly felt like I was in my living room. Stealth. Think of it like the car version of The Rock. Strong and solid, but gosh it looks good in a suit and can get around surprisingly quickly.
It’s got excellent interior space without compromising on agility while driving and parking, and has a luxurious feeling that lasts long after you exit the car. The advanced technology and attention to detail is fabulous.
