2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar Review: Opulence Prime

Few come close to offering the level of style and sophistication of a Range Rover, and the compact luxury SUV class is ruled by one of Land Rover's most talented SUVs: the Range Rover Velar. The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar is packed with luxury features, class-leading refinement, and an impressive range of engines that will suit most needs. Under the hood of the Range Rover Velar SUV, you'll find everything from a base 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, all the way to a 542-horsepower supercharged 5.0-liter gas V8 motor. Despite this first generation of the Velar sharing underpinnings with the Jaguar F-Pace, the Range Rover Velar steps up in size and opulence to face off against luxury midsize competitors such as the BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz GLE.

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar Changes: 🚙What's the difference vs. 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Velar?

The 2020 Range Rover Velar gains several standard features for the new model year in the US, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other notable additions include standard blind-spot monitoring, 14-way power-adjustable front seats, SiriusXM satellite radio, and two new paint colors. The diesel engine has been scrapped and in its place is the arch-enemy of economy - a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 that is only available with a new trim level called SVAutobiography Dynamic. This model is more than just a beefy SUV, too, as various performance and trim enhancements help set it apart.

Pros and Cons

  • Stunning minimalist looks
  • Luxurious interior
  • Lots of cargo space
  • Glorious V8 option
  • Capable of going off-road
  • Unintuitive infotainment system
  • 4-cylinder engine lacks refinement
  • Expensive. Very expensive.
  • Not exactly light on fuel

Verdict: 🏁Is the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar a good SUV?

The Range Rover Velar, in any configuration, is one of those cars that you buy because of the image rather than the capabilities of the car. We're not saying the Velar is a lousy vehicle; we're just saying that people are posers. Despite this, the Land Rover Range Rover Velar is a surprisingly effective tool: it is very spacious and awesomely luxurious on the inside, highly customizable (can someone say $9,000 paint jobs?) and is still a highly effective off-road tool. Under the hood, all four engine choices have their merits, although the four-pot is slightly unrefined and the V6 lacks the potency its soundtrack suggests it might possess. The V8 is a stand-out choice here and makes the Velar feel like a true sports SUV, and doesn't have any negative consequences on the reliability of the SUV. However, the price of the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar SUV in SVAutobiography guise with the V8 is a hefty $90,790, which is a bitter pill to swallow when aspects like unintuitive infotainment get in the way of complete enjoyment. But you can't put a price on style, can you? While others might give you more for less, our review of the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar leaves us with just one thought - it's worth it.
