Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Velar sets new SUV style benchmarks with its captivating body and exquisite interior.

Pros
Gorgeous shape
Adjustable and capable air suspension
Modern and sleek interior
Opulent interior...
…made better by extra-cost cloth fabric

Cons
Six figures for a mid-size SUV is a thing now
Engines feel old now
Big wheels = tough ride
Did someone say more for cloth?
Just enough second-row space

The 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Velar ranked #12 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Land Rover Range Rover Velar has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 13 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Refined, energetic performance
Excellent fuel economy
Sophisticated cabin with high-quality materials
High-tech, responsive infotainment system

Cons
No potent V8 engine option
Questionable reliability

By: 
usnews.com

The lovely Velar's sophomore year is marked by some slight tweaks to its available content and a larger, 21.6-gallon fuel tank. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are available for the first time and are bundled together in the Smartphone Pack package and the Velar's Premium Textile interior upholstery can now be ordered as a standalone option.

PROS
Stunning to behold,
functional cargo area,
upscale interior materials.

CONS
Touchscreen-everything interior takes getting used to,
so-so powertrains, top-shelf models are pricey.

By: 
caranddriver.com

For 2020, the MDX carries over without any changes to its appearance, mechanical components, or available features. The lineup continues to offer a gasoline and gas-electric hybrid model as well as a second-row bench that allows up to seven passengers or captain's chairs that seat up to six. However, Acura did increase the base price of the regular MDX and the Sport Hybrid by $100.

Pros
Entertaining to drive—for a three-row crossover, quick and smooth hybrid powertrain, standard driver assists.

Cons
Unremarkable passenger space, quirky touchscreen setup, options inflate the price.

By: 
usnews.com

The 2020 Acura MDX is a stately three-row family crossover that has aged well.

PROS
Handsome looks
Confident power
Spread-out space
Good efficiency from hybrid
Standard active safety features

CONS
Pricey options packages
Top trims don’t feel quite as luxurious as we’d expect
Third row can be cramped for tall adults
Shallow cargo area

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2020 Acura MDX Hybrid comes with all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 7-speed automated manual.No significant changes for 2020.

Pros
Generous array of features and active driver aids for the money
Excellent all-wheel-drive system allows for sharp handling
Generous interior storage
Quiet, comfortable and spacious cabin

Cons
Cabin looks and feels less luxurious than those of some rivals
Adaptive cruise control can be slow to respond and abrupt when it does
Dual-screen infotainment system can be quite difficult to use
Handoff between all-electric and engine power is clunky
