From old Velar, the abstraction that angry into a assembly car, to new Velar, the assembly car that looks like a concept. From dual-purpose 4×4 aimed at country folk, to road-biased SUV bought by anybody (but mostly townies). From anatomic to fashionable, from the shires to Shanghai.

The change of Range Rover, the brand, mirrors that of SUVs, the breed. The aboriginal 1970 Range Rover – prototypes of which were badged Velar – was additionally the aboriginal avant-garde SUV. It was appropriately acceptable on the bridleways and the motorways. There were some beforehand big American 4x4s additionally advised for on-road and off. Except they weren’t actual acceptable at either.

That aboriginal Range Rover was a big, bluff, handsome, able beast. Chief architect Spen King absolutely did not accede it a affluence car or in any way ‘premium’ – favoured cliché of today’s motoring marketers. Yet it acquired into one. Soon, Range Rovers became go-anywhere substitutes for controlling cars. The SUV was born. Rivals copied. The blow is history. And, in some cases, tragedy.

The SUV is now the fastest growing brand of car in the world. As they morph from anomaly to ubiquity, so their buying abject broadens. They now address to anybody from beefcake disciplinarian to cheeky motorist, from ancestors man to careful mum. Those of blowing disposition like their alarming size. Those of claimed crisis like their careful bulk.

Perhaps saddest of all, they are alike acceptable sports car substitutes, abnormally in affectable new markets such as Russia and China. There a adolescent man’s adorned is added acceptable to focus on a big-foot SUV than a wide-tyre sportster. They animalism afterwards a twin-turbo Cayenne, not a flat-six 911.

As the bazaar booms, so the offerings fragment. They alter from toy-like Suzukis to boxy Toyotas; from blowing Mercs to agreeable Maseratis; from chic Porsches to big BMWs; from Q2 to Qashqai. We acquisition bling Bentleys and behemothic Jaguars. The daddies of the genre, Jeep and Land Rover, aggrandize and diversify. Rather like the artist of the selfie stick, they apparently can’t absolutely accept what they’ve started.

SUVs now appear in all shapes and sizes, but two of the best appropriate angle afore me. The Porsche Macan GTS, in the aforementioned adumbration of red that adorns today’s 911, is apparently the sportiest SUV of all, if we exclude the carefully accompanying Macan Turbo. In abounding ways, it is added aggrandized hot bear than accelerated SUV, admitting Porsche refers to it as a activity account vehicle. It’s additionally abundantly spacious, analytic able and comfortable. It’s as abundant 4×4 ancestors car as all-wheel-drive sports car.

Then there is the new Range Rover Velar, Land Rover’s best road-biased SUV and its best beautiful car, too. In supercharged petrol 375bhp V6 form, as tested, it’s additionally Land Rover’s sportiest mid-range SUV, a accessible affection as it tackles Porsche. Top acceleration is 155mph and 0-62mph takes 5.7 seconds.

It is a actual arty car, breathtakingly handsome from abounding angles. Architecture bang-up Gerry McGovern is apparently the world’s best admired stylist of SUVs, and actuality absolutely is his masterpiece. Gerry doesn’t like anoraks, camping, sleeping bags, or any of that able old Ranulph Fiennes stuff. The Velar is no added acceptable to be acclimated on all-around chance than a brace of John Lobb bespoke Oxfords. This is actual abundant a Gerry McGovern Range Rover, achingly urban, alluring not gritty.

The appearance is amazingly clean. Aggregate is flush, including the aperture handles. It’s one big, bland allotment of sculpture. The attitude – generally a botheration with slab-sided, high-roof SUVs – is4 perfect. It’s big – abundant bigger than the Evoque, but abate than the Range Rover Sport. It’s additionally added than 100mm best than a Macan, admitting of agnate weight. Thank the Velar’s aluminium architecture, a Jaguar Land Rover hallmark.

The pop-out aperture handles coast advanced aback the car is unlocked, and acclaim abjure afresh aback the doors are shut. Inside, the architecture is aloof as aerial as the exterior, bare of advantage and causeless decoration. Apart from a brace of multifunctional rotary controllers, all aloft controls are handled by two touchscreens. The lower awning is alike with the centre console, while the aerial awning swivels advanced aback you booty up base abaft the wheel, and the admixture rotary ambassador rises acclaim from its nest. It’s all allotment of the ambrosial theatre of Velar ownership.

The accompanying screens accommodate a amazing array of functions, from the banal (radio approach selection, bang control, phone, sat-nav) to the cabalistic (g-meter and alarm including ‘best time’ – apparently for that bang about the ‘Ring). For best sportiness, there is a blast helmet figure that accesses a approach to acquiesce claimed agreement of your Velar’s mechanicals, dialling up the accurateness of steering, throttle, gearshift and suspension. There is additionally Eco, Comfort, additional the accepted Land Rover Terrain Response settings (sand, mud/ruts, grass/gravel/snow etc).

Though primarily a alley car, the Velar has cogent off-road potential. It’s the Land Rover brand’s key differentiator, afterwards all, from all the added SUV pretenders. We alike acquisition a Low Absorption Launch Ascendancy setting, abysmal in the touchscreen’s menu. Mind you, the extreme best Velars are acceptable to adventure off alley is a albino Norfolk car esplanade by the sea, or a accurately manicured academy sports field. Our car’s air abeyance permits acme acclimation too, all the bigger to basement rocks and ruts.

The high-resolution touchscreens are beautifully accomplished and accommodate able-bodied into a chic autogenous of perforated leather, piano-black wood, suede-effect Alcantara, and carbon appliqué. They are below automatic than any Apple product, or than Volvo’s or Tesla’s industry-leading distinct big touchscreens. They additionally accept an annoying addiction of highlighting fingerprint smudges, abacus some exceptionable dust to the glamour. (They additionally abridgement Apple CarPlay, an odd blank in a car so adherent to connectivity and geekery.)

In advanced of the disciplinarian the cyberbanking ball continues: a high-tech TFT looks affably analogue. There’s a head-up affectation as well, bulging key advice assimilate the windscreen, in the driver’s band of sight.

Front-seat abundance is excellent, and rear allowance accept for three. The rear backrests are electrically rake adjustable on our Aboriginal Edition analysis car, complete with every advantage imaginable, and a absurd £86,175 price. Losing the Aboriginal Edition blueprint but befitting the aforementioned supercharged petrol V6 doesn’t trim the amount much: you can get a Range Rover Activity with the aforementioned powertrain for less.

The accomplished berth works actual well, with one caveat: the lower allotment of the berth – bench foundations, attic trim, and aperture map pockets – are all fabricated from hard, low-grade plastic, the array you ability apprehend in a £10k Dacia but not an £80k Rangie.

We meet, for this accompanying test, in Telford, called afterwards alley and abuse architect Thomas Telford, the self-styled birthplace of the automated revolution. The Macan in its ablaze red paintjob is lower, below and narrower than the all-embracing Velar. Its body-work looks shrink-wrapped about its mechanicals, admitting the Velar is the absurd voluptuary. In the Porsche, you pay for what’s below the skin. You buy a Velar for its skin.

The Macan is not a handsome car, at atomic to my eyes, although it’s boilerplate abreast as bad as its big animal sister, the Cayenne – endlessly updated, atrociously repulsive. As with all Porsches, the stylists accept approved to bathe the architecture spirit of the 911, from abounding advanced wings, to characteristic advanced and rear lamps, to angled hips. You can absolutely see the 911 overtures. Sadly, this accent alone works on a 911. The Cayenne and (less so) the Macan attending like 911s on stilts. The poor Panamera like an continued 911 that’s spent too abundant time on a rack.

Inside the time-honoured Porsche architecture cues assignment far added successfully. We acquisition the big axial tacho, red on our GTS. The instruments are analogue, naturally. There is a admirable little atramentous Alcantara-rimmed council wheel. Active position is aloof so. The gearchange paddles feel like absolute metal (where the Velar’s feel like attenuate plastic).

Unlike the minimalist autogenous of the Velar, the Macan’s raked and advanced centre animate has switches for everything, from acrimonious advanced seats, to sports suspension, to added bankrupt bark, to absorption ascendancy off. Aloft this switchgear super-
abundance the touchscreen looks about inconsequential. The cartoon are poorer affection than the Velar’s. In connectivity4 and avant-garde electro-gadgetry, the Range Rover is a bearing advanced of the Porsche, and it’s been a continued time aback we’ve been able to say that of a British car over a German one. We’ve never been able to say it afore about a Jaguar Land Rover product, adept connectivity laggards. Heavens above, our Macan alike came with a CD player.

The Macan’s seats hug and anchor you. They are sports chairs, and they’re not alone adequate but badly supportive, abnormally at speed. Despite the 100mm or so aberration in length, there isn’t a big accessible aberration in rear-seat room. The Velar’s aback bench is added spacious, but not decidedly so. Its boot, though, is abundant bigger. If you charge endless of accustomed space, buy the Velar. Both accept accessible 40:20:40 folding rear seats, acceptable for able amount lugging.

So, the two cars accommodated in Telford. I’ve apprenticed up from London in the Macan. Colleague CJ Hubbard has apprenticed from Peterborough in the Velar. ‘Fast, a bit analgesic to drive, looks spectacular,’ is CJ’s early, cogent and prophetic aboriginal impression. The Macan, conversely, can be so far summed as ‘fast, agreeable to drive, so-so to attending at’.

I accumulate active the Macan to a ammunition stop abreast the Welsh border, area we swap. From there we drive abysmal into Wales, mostly on ambagious secondaries to Snowdonia, through appealing villages and on to Bala, area we accept lunch. Again it is abysmal into Snowdonia, including a ambagious B-road to Ffestiniog and Rhyd-y-sarn, accustomed from antecedent drives on Welsh acreage anchorage in supercars. Alone sheep and acceleration banned blemish the fun. We alike accept time for a abrupt atom of 4×4 off-roading on a attenuated rutted blooming clue (Velar 1, Macan 0).

A abounding and adamantine day’s active – swapping from Macan to Velar and aback – makes it bright that if active amusement is your priority, again it’s the Porsche’s keys you want. The Macan is the best-driving SUV in the world, and by some margin. The GTS is an abnormally appetizing iteration, 355bhp twin-turbo 3.0 petrol V6 meets seven-speed PDK gearbox. That may be 20bhp below than a Velar, and one arrangement fewer, but you never feel short-changed. It accelerates faster and consistently feels added lively. An added 30-odd lb ft of torque (369 vs 332) helps.

On the arced stuff, the Macan hunkers bottomward on its heels, while the Velar floats on its toes. The Macan is a added assured barbarian to advance hard; bigger feedback, sweeter brakes, bluff paddleshifting, added acknowledging throttle, added feelsome steering. My God, it’s about 911 good, admitting you still feel you’re benumbed too high. You appetite to be bottomward abutting to the action, not up with your arch in the clouds. It’s like active a 911 from the roof.

The Velar, by comparison, aloof feels like an SUV – too high, too heavy, too soft, too floaty, a appropriate car betrayed by its proportions. All SUVs are too big and too heavy; this ‘mid-sized SUV’ weighs about 1.9 tonnes. Nonetheless, accept Dynamic mode, about-face the rotary ambassador to the Activity Manual setting, and you can accept some fun on rural secondaries.4 That supercharged V6 is eager, adapted (though not so accordant as the Porsche’s V6), and at acceleration the abeyance does a appealing acceptable job of arresting the bumps and yet accouterment bright feedback. It still feels like an SUV alongside a sportster, though.

Even at lower speeds the Macan is the bigger drive. Added communicative, sharper, as abundant clue car as demi-truck. It rides better, too, on its 20-inch wheels. Alike in Activity mode, the Macan has a admirable alteration about the way it moves over the tarmac, activity meets sportiness. No SUV does it better.

The Velar’s ride disappoints. On air springs and 21-inch auto the ride is a bit thumpy at low speed, and sometimes active at bigger speeds (it absolutely improves aback blame hard). It lacks the active delivery of a Range Rover or Range Rover Sport. It charge be alike worse on 22-inch wheels. If you accept a Velar, go for the abate rubber, alike if it does abandon the concept-car-styling swagger.

In active appeal, it’s a bright win for the Porsche. The Macan is additionally added comfortable, attributable to its above ride, and has a berth of college all-embracing quality, if not architecture pizzazz. Area the Velar uses hard, bargain plastics on its lower flanks, the Macan uses soft-touch plastics of bigger tactility and, I’d expect, durability.

But should a Macan adjoin Velar challenge be acclimatized absolutely on dynamics, with the odd nod to plastics quality? Of advance not! The Velar is the added arresting to attending at, the added appropriate all-round buying experience. It’s an alluringly accomplished allotment of sculpture. It will get added acquisitive glances from neighbours and added drivers.

Its autogenous is additionally spectacular, and mostly able-bodied executed. It is a appropriate abode to absorb time, one of the best abundant car cabins. It is roomier than the Macan, abnormally if we accommodate the boot. It has added connectivity. It goes fast. It drives okay. You can authenticate the touchscreen appearance for hours. It is a actual avant-garde SUV admitting the Porsche is, in abounding ways, rather old fashioned. (Although CJ admired the CD player: ‘At last, about I can comedy all my old discs!’)

So is it horses for courses? The Macan for agog drivers, the Velar for those who prioritise architecture and functionality? That ability be the analytic conclusion. Personally, though, I’d buy the Macan. Bigger to drive – fast or apathetic – and additionally bigger amount as tested: £68,506 adjoin a absurd £86,175.

If the Velar appeals – and I can see your point – again about £60k is the candied spot. That gets you 2.0 turbo petrol power, apparently all you need. It gets you all the concept-car drama, the start-her-up theatre, and the chic cabin. It gets you a car of amazing appearance and cogent substance. But for the aforementioned money you can still get a Macan GTS, complete with bouncy twin-turbo V6. And aback the alley opens, cartage thins and the corners arrive, you’ll be animated you chose the Porsche.
