2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar vs. Its Competition

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography

Since the Velar shares its underpinnings with the Jaguar F-Pace, it’s worth cross-shopping the two.

The Jag costs less and isn’t as plush inside, but the ride quality is similar.

Mercedes-Benz has a GLC-Class SUV for any need, so don’t miss it.

Volvo’s XC60 boasts a broad lineup and subtle Scandinavian style throughout, plus plenty of power from its 4-cylinder engine lineup, including a plug-in hybrid.

Audi’s Q5 is just right and even better as the rorty SQ5.

Don’t leave the Porsche Macan off your list.

There’s not a better-handling SUV, although the Alfa Romeo Stelvio could contend.
