When I first heard about the all-new Land Rover Range Rover Velar, I must admit I was a bit perplexed.

Would it really make sense in the company's product portfolio? Would it sell? Does it actually advance Land Rover from a product perspective?

After driving one, I can confidently say yes, yes and yes.

But what do normal folks think of the all-new Velar? Well, that's where our friends at Consumer Reports come into the picture.

The well-known publication recently got some seat time behind the wheel and in this short clip they go through the Velar from the 30,000-foot perspective. They spell out the good, the bad and the ugly. Give it a watch and let us know if you concur with their findings.

The Range Rover Velar has sleek styling cues, a luxurious interior and high-tech controls. But from behind the wheel, drivers may find an experience that's more akin to a sports sedan than an SUV.
