THE RANGE ROVER ONE JOURNALIST HAS TO HAVE
Crawford says any reservations he might have had about the Velar were quashed by the SVA, developed by the renowned Special Vehicle Operations team at Jaguar Land Rover. With a challenge to provide a significant lift in performance and handling without compromising composure, off-road ability and the refinement expected of a Range Rover, he was about to discover just how successful the team had been in achieving their goal
PERFORMANCE THAT PULLS NO PUNCHES
Crawford views the balance of power and handling as being dialled in just right, with everything honed to deliver more excitement. Switch to Dynamic mode and “you’re ready to assault your favourite roads. The chassis stiffens up and roll is reduced to a minimum. What’s more, it feels solid and very dependable with good feedback through the steering wheel.” He notes ride comfort is good in either drive mode, and overall the SVA gets full marks for delivering a refined and impressive ride.
LUXURY TO MATCH PERFORMANCE
Equally impressive is the giant instrument display, for both its clarity and colour as well as customisation and functionality. Crawford appreciates that the creature comforts are “laid on thick”, including a superb Meridian surround sound system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, four-zone climate control, and a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to eight devices. Massage front seats, heated rear seats, and “automatic everything” round out a truly comprehensive luxury offering.
