The Disappearing SUV

The 2018 Range Rover Velar continues the British brand's march toward minimalism, with reductive lines and clean surfaces that work to belie the bulk of this SUV. Take, for example, the flush door handles, which emerge from the Velar's body when you hit a button on the key fob or on the handle itself. The sleek handles are more than a style flourish: They reduce the vehicle's drag coefficient to .32, the automaker's most impressive figure yet. The minimalist bent continues with a floating roof, steely slim LED headlights, and controls that are hidden until lit. [From $49,900; landroverusa.com]
