2019 Land Rover Range Rover Velar vs. Its Competition

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Velar
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

Which mid-size luxury SUV sells what the Range Rover Velar is selling—style? The Jaguar F-Pace is related to the Velar and is better to drive, but falls down on tech and exterior looks.

The GLC-Class can be far more affordable, although GLC Coupes start at nearly the same price.

The Land Rover Range Rover Velar may align more closely with the Porsche Macan in terms of price, although the Velar is slightly bigger.

The Macan offers better on-road performance—especially in Macan Turbo models—for now, but the Velar wins in sheet metal.

The Audi Q5 is a conservative pick among the group, but its understated class could have its appeal.

The X5 makes its case in usable space, and this year’s new model has a knockout interior with touches such as crystal-tipped shifters.
