2018 Range Rover family: How they compare
Helping you tell apart the Range Rover, Sport, Velar and Evoque
So, there’s this thing called the 2018 Land Rover Range Rover. But really, that’s just what it’s called in the realm of automotive websites that need a proper Year, Make and Model to make the 1’s and 0’s make sense of it. If you know someone who refers to it as a ” Land Rover Range Rover,” let us know, we’ll send them a scone. Really, what we’re talking about is the 2018 Range Rover, the literal range-topping model and an ancestor to the SUV that started the whole luxury off-roader craze in the first place. We just got our first drive of its first plug-in hybrid version, the 2019 Range Rover 400e.
However, “Range Rover” is also a sub-brand within Land Rover (other sub-brands now include Discovery and the upcoming Defender). Belonging to it, and slotting below the Range Rover (full stop), is the 2018 Range Rover Sport, the 2018 Range Rover Velar and the 2018 Range Rover Evoque.
How Do Their Dimensions Compare?
Range Rover Velar VS. 2020 Range Rover Evoque
It’s easy to decide that a Range Rover is the luxury SUV brand you are looking for, with outstanding on and off-road performance and stunning design inside and out. What may not be as easy is deciding which Range Rover you want to drive home. To help our customers, we have compared two of our most popular luxury SUVs, the Range Rover Velar and the Range Rover Evoque.
EXTERIOR DESIGN & STYLE
Right from the time you lay eyes on the Range Rover Velar and Range Rover Evoque you will notice they have two very different styles. The Velar has raised the bar of ultimate luxury with a sleek and modern design that flows effortlessly throughout the whole body from ultra-slim LED headlights. While the Range Rover Evoque has a sporty and bold exterior with defined curves and muscular wheel wells. Another difference between the two Range Rover is that the Velar is larger than the Evoque by about 17 inches long and two inches wider.
POWERTRAIN & PERFORMANCE
The next difference between the Range Rover Velar and the Range Rover Evoque is powertrain. While both vehicles deliver an exciting driving experience there are some technical differences. For example, the Range Rover Velar has a higher towing ability at 5,291 lbs. while the Evoque can tow 3,968. Or that the Range Rover Velar can wade through the same amount of water, 23.6 inches, as the Evoque can. But perhaps the biggest difference in performance is the engine options. The Range Rover Evoque is powered by either a 246 horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder or a high-performance 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 296 horsepower. The Range Rover Velar has four powertrain options. Choose between three gas-powered engines: a 247-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 that produces 340 horsepower or a 3.0-liter V6 that produces 380 horsepower. Or you can choose the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine with 180 horsepower.
INTERIOR DESIGN & SPACE
Like their respective exterior designs the inside of the Range Rover Velar and Range Rover Evoque are very different. Both Range Rover models utilize premium materials and finishes in an array of colors and can comfortably seat five. The Velars features a refined interior design with dual sliding front arm resets, ambient lighting, and two 10-inch touchscreens. While the Range Rover Evoque stays true to is sporty style with twin-needle stitched leather, an eight-inch touchscreen media system, and an available panoramic roof. The main difference between the interior space and seating for the two Range Rover models is cargo space. The Range Rover Evoque has a maximum space of 50.5 cubic feet while the Velar has 70 cubic feet.
Since the Velar and Evoque come from the same family they share many of the same features and both vehicles come standard with a rearview camera, Rear Parking Aid, Hill Descent Control, Start/Stop technology, and Cruise Control with Speed Limiter. Optional features on both vehicles include Head-Up Display, Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Monitor with Reverse Traffic Detection, and Traffic Sign Recognition. Equipping the right package of safety features helps guarantee an extra pair of eyes to help monitor the busy roads around you.
