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.

FEATURES

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.

Whether you choose to go with the Range Rover Evoque or you try out the Range Rover Velar, there is a model to accommodate any of your needs. At Land Rover Huntington, we offer a wide selection of Range Rover models and we’re happy to help you pick out the one that suits you best.

Touareg Review

Volkswagen is keen to remind buyers that the Touareg SUV is now, and will always be, its flagship car. It’s always been an imposing technical marvel, but since the departure of the Phaeton (remember that?), it sits alone at the top of the VW price list – and up against some very impressive rivals.

Considering this opposition includes the Audi Q7, the BMW X5, the Land Rover Discovery and the Mercedes-Benz GLE, it’s understandable that Volkswagen has thrown its developmental kitchen sink at this car. This explains why it has packed the new Touareg with a range of newly-introduced technology to make it the sharpest driving, most tech-laden vehicle it offers.

On paper, it looks like the Touareg is more than capable of answering the questions posed by its rivals, as well as its interesting, but discontinued Phaeton saloon in-house alternative.
