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

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.

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

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 2019, the XC90 has no major powertrain updates but some new standard features and updated option packages. Every model now has updated infotainment software, third-row seating, heated washer nozzles, a 12-volt outlet in the cargo area, and four-zone climate control, among other things. The higher trim levels have a Harman/Kardon premium stereo, navigation, sun shades in the rear side windows, and a tailored dashboard and upper door panels.

Pros
Astonishingly beautiful,
solid driving dynamics,
safety by Volvo.

Cons
Can approach starter-home prices,
minor powertrain flaws,
base trim lacks the lineup’s best features.

By:
