We go on the ultimate Land Rover off-road adventureOff road is where the real challenge lies and with a range of vehicles that crave the most rutted trucks and the steepest inclines, Land Rover Experience (LRE) centres offer the most accessible way to get down and dirty. We visited six LREs in the UK to find out how.

The Range Rover Velar SUV has been updated for 2020, with a refreshed powertrain line-up, including a new P400e plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and upgraded technology. You can order the new Velar now, with prices starting at £46,110.

Range Rover Velar P400e plug-in hybrid

The new Velar P400e plug-in hybrid combines a 2.0-litre petrol engine and an electric motor to produce a total power output of 398bhp and manages 0-62mph in only 5.4 seconds. It promises a pure-electric range of up to 33 miles, and fuel economy of up to 130mpg with CO2 emissions of only 49g/km. The latter figure will be of particular interest to company-car users, with the PHEV attracting a substantially lower BiK rate than the conventional petrol and diesel models.

Kia Ceed Sportswagon 1.6 GDi PHEV 2020 UK review

  Kia Ceed Sportswagon 1.6 GDi PHEV 2020 UK review Plug-in Ceed Sportswagon makes for a practical, no-frills PHEV. We see how this new Kia fares on UK roadsIt handles sweetly enough, too, with good front-end response and more than enough grip in day-to-day driving. Although there is a slightly fake-feeling sense of weight about the wheel as you add lock, the steering is nonetheless accurate. Body roll becomes a bit more pronounced as you pick up speed, but you’d never say the Ceed feels loose or wayward. It lacks the zest and some of the poise you’d get in a Ford Focus, sure, although many will probably like it for its slightly more no-frills approach to getting down a road.

Recharging the 17.1kWh battery takes less than two hours using a 7kW home wallbox, or you can top it up to 80% in half an hour from a fast-charger. The introduction of the Velar P400e plug-in hybrid means every Range Rover model is now electrified.

New D200, D300 and P400 engines

The Velar’s petrol and diesel engine line-up has been tweaked too. Kicking off the range is the D200 four-cylinder diesel engine, which produces 201bhp, and is capable of up to 44.9mpg. Its CO2 output of 165g/km means it sneaks under the highest BiK band.

The D300 diesel and P400 petrol engines both have six cylinders, and produce 296 and 395bhp respectively. The D300 model reaches 62mph from standstill in 6.5 seconds and manages up to 37.2mpg, while the powerful petrol engine accelerates a second quicker but promises to be even thirstier. All three of these engines feature mild-hybrid assistance.

Interior and technology

The Range Rover Velar is the latest model to benefit from Jaguar Land Rover’s new Pivi and Pivi Pro infotainment systems. It consists of two screens mounted in the centre console - one for the media and navigation, and a lower screen for the climate control functions making it easier to use than the outgoing system. Bluetooth connectivity with two phones is available for the first time, and Spotify is newly integrated within the infotainment system too. Software updates are completed wirelessly over-the-air, so you don’t have to visit the dealership so often.

Another new feature is Active Road Noise Cancellation, which works to reduce the outside noise you hear inside the cabin. We’re told the system reduces the sound level by a minimum of four decibels, which should make the interior even more refined, and the system can even adjust the sound level based on the number of passengers. Meanwhile, a Cabin Air Filtration system reduces your exposure to pollen and dirty air, and there’s a second-generation wearable Activity Key available that means you don’t have to take the key out with you when exercising.
