Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar comes with all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed shiftable automatic.Trim lineup restructured, with fewer variants than before.Additional features on new base Velar S model.Diesel engine has been discontinued, while a new supercharged V8 appears on the new top trim level.

Pros
Distinctive styling inside and out
Strong V6 engine
High-quality materials in the cabin

Cons
Infotainment system is frustrating to use
Rear legroom is a little tight
Overly firm ride

The high-performance SV Autobiography Dynamic edition joins the lineup for 2020, powered by a rip-snorting supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 making 550 horsepower. We've driven it already, and it's awesome. Elsewhere, Land Rover has made more minor updates, such as making Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration across the Velar lineup and fitting the base S model with driver-assistance tech such as blind-spot monitoring, 14-way power-adjustable front seats, a power-adjustable steering column, and SiriusXM satellite radio.

Pros
Avant-garde styling, large cargo space, high-end interior design.

Cons
Finicky infotainment system, grumbly engines, eye-popping price tags.

The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar is unranked in Luxury Midsize SUVs due to missing safety data. Currently, the Land Rover Range Rover Velar's overall score is not available, though its Critics' Rating, Performance score, and Interior score are based on our evaluation of 17 pieces of research and data.

Pros
Elegant, high-quality interior
Powerful engine options
Composed ride and handling

Cons
Distracting dual-screen infotainment system

By: 
usnews.com

No significant changes for 2021.

Pros
Turbocharged 500-hp V8 moves the SQ8 with authority
Four-wheel steering keeps the big SUV feeling nimble
Surprisingly comfortable given its performance bent
Stylish, distinctive exterior

Cons
Infotainment system can be distracting to use
Driver's seat has few adjustments
Limited interior storage

By:

For its sophomore year, the SQ8 soldiers on with only one change: It now comes standard with a built-in toll-road-payment transmission feature.Upgrading to the Prestige trim costs $5500 but adds a host of driver-assistance and luxury features, such as adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, a head-up display with navigation guidance, fancier LED exterior lighting elements, soft-close doors, headlamp washers, heated rear seats, and power rear sunshades. If none of that sounds particularly important to you, save the cash and go with the Premium Plus. All SQ8 models come with the best performance-enhancing features Audi can throw at them, so no matter which one you choose, you're getting the same driving experience.

PROS
Powerful V-8 engine,
high-quality interior trimmings,
aggressive exterior design.

CONS
Some may regret not going with the RS Q8,
braking performance could be better,
thirsty powertrain.

Pros
Sports-car fast
Posh and spacious interior
Plenty of infotainment tech

Cons
Alternatives are more fun to drive
Cheaper Q8 50TDI makes more sense
Petrol-powered alternatives are more dramatic
