The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar is offered across four trims and is priced at an MSRP range that starts at $49,600 and goes up to $74,000. There are 3 power trains on offer, a 2.0L, 3.0L, and a massive 5.0L. It further delivers average in terms of fuel economy e and wins hearts for its impeccable interiors. However, it faces staunch competition from the 2020 Jaguar F-Pace and the sporty 2020 Porsche Macan.

After its debut last year, the Land Rover Range Rover Velar stood as quite a performer amongst the other midsize luxury SUVs of its class. For 2020, it has just the same aggressive demeanor, although you can actually keep that in check this time around. The styling is well up to par with the likes of Porsche Macan and Mercedes GLC-Class, perhaps even surpassing them if you are a fan of the classic Discovery. The Land Rover Range Rover Velar is a sporty SUV that can carry 5 passengers with splendor and has no problem when you have to take it off the tarmac.

Overall Rating


The 2020 Range Rover Velar offers a couple of engine options to choose from. You can go for the turbocharged inline-4 that does the best of maintaining the balance between power and fuel economy. For a more thrilling experience, there is the supercharged 3.0L V6 that puts out almost 400 horsepower for the driver to play around with. Other features like an adaptive suspension, hill descent control, and configurable AWD make the Velar adept for off-road situations. You can expect a lot of creature comforts, too, with a wide variety of seats, sound systems, and other interior options to choose from. The cabin is highly customizable with several materials to choose from. From faux-suede and leather for the seats to wood and aluminum finish on the panels, it is as upscale as you can expect from a Range Rover.

2020 Velar, Land Rover Range Rover

Nevertheless, it is the price that is the biggest enemy of the Range Rover Velar. For a lineup that stretches up to nearly $80,000, you have a lot of alternatives if you wish for a sporty SUV. The Audi Q8 and Porsche Macan have power figures in the same ballpark as the Velar, with a considerably lower price tag. Just a bit more funds could fetch you the coveted 2020 Porsche Macan. The competition also sees the 2020 Jaguar F-Pace.

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar Features

7.7/10

"The 2020 Range Rover Velar has an elegant cabin, brawny engine performance, and composed handling, but its infotainment system is awkward to use" - Cars.USNews

The 2020 Range Rover Velar features 4 trims namely the Velar S, Velar R-Dynamic S, R-Dynamic HSE, SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition. They are available with two different engines i.e., the 2.0 Liter turbocharged inline 4 engine and the 3.0 Liter Supercharged V6 engine. But this year the R-Dynamic does not offer the inline 4 engine. The base trim i.e., the Velar S comes equipped with synthetic leather and suede upholstery, 10-way power-adjustable front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a panoramic sunroof, and proximity key entry.

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar

On the other hand, the R-Dynamic S gets upgrades such as perforated grained leather seats, an 11-speaker Meridian sound system, a navigation system, etc. In addition to these, the R-Dynamic SE and HSE trim get the Driver Assistance Package from the get-go. The top-level trims also grant you access to the 23-speaker Meridian Signature Audio System, massaging seats, and a heated steering wheel.

We Recommend

The one to pick here is P250 R-Dynamic S since it is specced quite well. With a decent mix of style and equipment such as 20-inch wheels, leather seats, a 17-speaker Meridian audio system, and a power rear liftgate, you get most of what the Range Rover Velar has to offer. We also recommend adding in the Driver Assistance Package for improved safety.

8.4/10

"The supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 is powerful but drinks plenty of fuel and transmits a gritty song through the dash." - Car and Driver

Engine specs of the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar

The base two trims of the 2020 Range Rover Velar come with a 2.0 Liter turbocharged inline 4 engine. This engine is capable of providing a horsepower of 247 hp and a torque of 269 lb. ft. They are also offered with a more powerful engine I.e., the 3.0 Liter supercharged V6 engine which generates a horsepower of 340hp.

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar 

Moreover, both these engines are paired with an 8 Speed Automatic transmission and an All-Wheel-Drive system. The ultimate high-end trim, the SVAutobiographty gets a massive 5.0L 8-cylinder engine, generating as much as 550 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque.

The base inline 4 engine of the Velar is quite powerful as it generates power on par with the other midsize luxury SUVs of the class such as the Porsche Macan, Jaguar F-Pace, and BMW X3. The Porsche is a tad bit above with 248 hp and 273 lb-ft to offer.

Acceleration of the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar

The turbocharged inline 4 engine of the 2020 Range Rover Velar produces enough power to make this SUV speed up with ease. It is capable of accelerating to a speed of 60MPH in about 6.4 seconds. Decent for an off-roader.

The 2020 Velar is quick enough to pace up with the Macan and is quicker than the Jaguar F-Pace. Despite a common 2.0L engine in all the cars considered, the ower outputs vary and so do the 0-60 MPH timings. A split second ahead and the 2020 Porsche Macan grabs the first position at 6.3 sec.

Ride and Handling of the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar

The 2020 Range Rover Velar might feel very aggressive at times but is capable of handling steep curves with finesse and confidence. Due to its standard adjustable suspension system, it is always quite composed and maintains its on-road behavior. Although this Range Rover might not feel as sporty as its elder brother, the Range Rover Sport, it provides quite a comfortable ride.

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar

In addition to four-wheel drive, the Velar has been installed with low traction launch, hill launch assist, and hill descent control to keep the SUV fixed to the track on steep roads. Moreover, the Terrain Response system is capable of adjusting performance for a grippy ride due to the availability of various drive modes such as Eco, Comfort, Grass-Gravel-Snow, Mud-Ruts, Sand, and Dynamic.

Braking of the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar

One aspect of performance the previous Velar lacked was braking. Looks like the 2020 Range Rover Velar has also inherited this drawback. It comes equipped with the same brakes i.e., 12.8-inch disc brakes on the front and back as its predecessor and weighs almost the same.

In terms of comparative brake performance, we only can measure the rotor sizes as installed in there. Even here, we lack the rotor size info of the 2020 Jaguar F-Pace. Of the given information we conclude the 2020 Macan to be superior as the rotors are larger and the curb weight is significantly lower. 

Towing Capacity of the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar

The 2020 Range Rover Velar is quite capable of dragging quite a weight on the back. It has a towing capacity of 5291 lbs, which looks quite impressive for others in its class.

This Velar is quite competent when it comes to towing capacity compared to others of its class. However, the F-Pace tows are capable of tow weight on par with this Range Rover. The Porsche Macan is set back by its limited ability of 4409 lbs.

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar Fuel Economy

7.0/10

"Our Velar test vehicle with the V-6 was a laggard, with a posted 22 mpg in our real-world highway fuel-economy test." - Car and Driver 

The inline 4 engine of the 2020 Range Rover Velar is fairly thirsty. It provides an average of 23 MPG with a fuel economy of 21 MPG in the city and 27 MPG on the highway. Though slightly better than the rest, it isn't a desirable gas mileage as per industry standards.

The 2020 Range Rover Velar has a tad less fuel economy than others in the class. It runs a mile less per gallon of fuel than other sports SUVs in this segment. The difference is made even more distinct with the supercharged V6 engine. The 2020 Porsche Macan records the lowest fuel efficiency in class.

"Related to the Jaguar F-Pace, the Land Rover Range Rover Velar presents nearly as striking a shape, wrapped around an interior that’s useful and versatile, one that comes with a few minor compromises." -The Car Connection

Seating and Comfort of the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar

This 5 seater luxury SUV has quite roomy space to make you sit comfortably without feeling congested. The Velar has an interior space on par with most of its competitors. The design sense is kept simple and the materials are all top-notch, furthermore, it has been inserted really craft fully. The owners get to choose the wood and metal inserts' texture and grade, the detailing of which is spellbound.

Up against its rivals, the 2020 Land Rover Velar proves to be significantly spacious, the most in comparison. Since we find the details of the 2020 Porsche Macan to be missing, we conclude that the former is better, The Jaguar lands the most compact interior in class.

Infotainment System of the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar

The Velar comes with the Land Rovers Touch Control Pro which was introduced in it when it debuted last year. This Infotainment replaces the previous outdated infotainment system in the other Land Rovers this year. It comes with two screens and an associated interface but the touch control might be a bit glitchy at times. Apart from that it also has the following infotainment features to keep you entertained during your drive:

  • Digital Signal Processor
  • Streaming Audio
  • Window Grid And Roof Mount Diversity Antenna
  • Bluetooth Wireless Phone Connectivity
  • 3 LCD Monitors In The Front
  • Turn-By-Turn Navigation Directions

Cargo Volume of the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar

The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar might not have the roomiest seating area. But looks like it has the most spacious cargo cabin in the class. It has a cargo volume of 34.4 cu.ft which can be increased to 70.1 cu.ft by folding the second seat.

"Land Rover makes available the latest driver-assistance technologies such as automated emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control on the Velar. " - Car and Driver

The Safety rating of the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar

Both the esteemed organizations haven't yet rated the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar for its safety, the NHTSA, and the IIHS. They usually tend to skip out on these expensive buys. Probably only because it is too pricey to crash. However, backed by its repute of being a sturdy and quality built off-roader and track machine, the 2020 Velar doesn't let us down in this front.

Safety Features of the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar

The 2020 Range Rover Velar has a handful list of features to keep you safe while driving. Features such as Emergency brake assist, a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, and rain-sensing windshield wipers come standard on the Velar as part of the Driver Assistance Package.

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar Competition

6.0/10

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar vs 2020 Jaguar F-Pace

The F-Pace might be a bit older player in the market than the Velar. It might sure have captured its position first but with the Velar on the run, it started to get tough competition. Both of them come with equally powerful engines but it looks like the Velar turns out to be a better performer. Its interior space and cargo volume are also spacious than the F-Pace. Also, their towing capacity is on par with each other. However, one drawback is that the Velar is a bit thirsty than the F-Pace. But overall the Velar has quite some reasons to justify the extra bucks that you are going to pay for it.

2020 Jaguar F Pace

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar vs 2020 Porsche Macan

This year the Porsche introduces the Flagship Model for the Second Generation of Macan. Although the new Macan might not flaunt a powerful engine as its predecessor but still is capable of running on par with the Velar and capable of giving a bit better performance than the velar. Its new infotainment also looks quite advanced than that of Velar. However, it still lags behind when it comes to space and a couple of other factors that an SUV should have. Hence here also looks like the Velar is a more justified option for the price being paid for an SUV. But if you are looking for a sports car for 5 you can always go for the Macan.

2020 Porsche Macan

 

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar Final Verdict

This is the second year for the Land Rover Range Velar into the market and it still has much more to improve. Although it is quite spacious and roomy and is a better hauler than most in the class, It still lags behind in terms of Power and Performance. Moreover, it should also try to control its thirst because there are many other better performers in the market which are less thirsty than the 2020 Range Rover Velar.
