What You Will Like

The Velar looks like it should cost considerably more than its base price of around $50,000. That price puts it in competition with other mid-sized luxury SUV's such as the BMW X4, and while BMW have tried to nail the odd combination of an SUV merged with a coupe, the end results aren't nearly as cohesive as what Land Rover have come up with for the Velar. Other than its styling, the Velar is still a good buy, as a sporty handling and extremely practical vehicle.

What's New For 2018

The Range Rover Velar is a brand new vehicle from Land Rover. It's a sporty alternative to the more utilitarian Land Rover Discovery. All it takes is one look at the Velar to see its appeal. The styling is incredibly sporty for an SUV and most people would look at it and swear they were seeing some concept car that somehow escaped an auto show. That swoopy styling is draped over a usable SUV however, one that is able to seat 5 people and stow a ton of baggage, making the Velar one of the few ultra-stylish vehicles to also be extremely practical.


  • Basic Warranty: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain Warranty: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles
  • Roadside Assistance: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Loading Comparison...


Introduced for 2018, Range Rover Velar follows a fresh design path and winds up as a stunning rendition of the authentic SUV. A sleek, gorgeous shape reveals a long hood, sloping roofline, and big open wheel arches. Its designer even omitted door handles, which might detract visually from the gracious body lines.

Gambling on uncommon beauty, inside and out, Land Rover hit a home run with Velar, creating a new benchmark in the luxury SUV category. Rugged, offroad-ready hardware, lets the new Velar live up to Land Rover heritage and its record of rough-country dominance.

A midsize luxury SUV, Velar is smaller than Land Rover’s Range Rover Sport but larger than the Evoque. It shares powertrains and a similar structure with the new Jaguar F-Pace.

Velar comes standard with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that develops 247 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque.

Stepping up on the performance scale, a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 whips up 380 horsepower and 332 pound-feet. The supercharged V6 is paired with an adjustable, highly capable air suspension. The adjustable setup can raise or lower the Velar by as much as 3 inches, up to total ground clearance of 9.9 inches.

Land Rover also offers a turbodiesel four-cylinder option. Particularly adept off-road, the diesel generates 180 horsepower and a brawny 317 pound-feet of torque, available at low engine speeds. The fuel-efficient turbodiesel yields up to 30 mpg in highway driving.

Each engine mates with an 8-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. Velars are rated to tow up to 5,500 pounds with a V6, or 5,200 pounds with the turbo four.

Range Rover offers five trim levels: standard, S, SE, HSE, and the limited-production First Edition. All three engines are available in S, SE, and HSE trim, but that standard version comes only with the gasoline four-cylinder and the First Edition is V6-only. Only 500 First Editions are to be built.

All Velars come with automatic emergency braking, a rearview camera, and lane-departure warning. R-Dynamic trim levels add blind-spot monitoring, drowsy driver monitoring, traffic sign detection, and adaptive speed limiter. R-Dynamic HSE includes adaptive cruise control, blind-spot assist, and lane-keep assist.


The Range Rover Velar P250 Standard ($49,900) comes with the 2.0-liter turbo four, 18-inch wheels, LED headlights, synthetic leather upholstery, 10-way power seats, emergency braking, rear park assist, a rearview camera, eight-speaker audio, and dual 10-inch touchscreens. Velar P250 S ($54,700) upgrades with 19-inch wheels, perforated leather upholstery, Driver’s memory, power-folding heated mirrors, 11-speaker Meridian audio, navigation, and telematics services. (Prices are MSRP and do not include $995 destination charge.)

Velar P250 R-Dynamic SE ($60,100) includes 20-inch wheels, 17-speaker audio, a 12.3-inch driver information cluster, aluminum interior accents, and advanced safety features. Velar P250 R-Dynamic HSE ($67,600) comes with 22-inch wheels, 20-way power seats with memory and massage, heated/cooled front seats, and additional safety features.

The more powerful supercharged 3.0-liter V6 comes with the Velar P380 S ($64,200), P380 R-Dynamic SE ($69,600), P380 R-Dynamic HSE ($77,100). The P380 First Edition ($89,300) features 22-inch wheels, a full extended leather interior with two-tone seats, 23-speaker 1600-watt Meridian sound, head-up display, and surround-view camera. A Fitbit-like activity key can replace the keyfob.

The 2.0-liter diesel four-cylinder engine comes with the Velar D180 S ($56,200), D180 R-Dynamic SE ($61,600), and D180 R-Dynamic HSE ($69,100).


Simply stunning, the Range Rover Velar sets a new benchmark for design of a modern SUV. Few would deny that it’s one of the best-looking SUVs; if not Number One.

Evolved from Jaguar’s F-Pace, the cleanly profiled Velar shies away from superfluous curves, omits door handles, and holds back on decoration. Up front, the hood seems unusually long. An uninterrupted character line extends back from the headlights.

Designers maintained a pinpoint focus on basic proportions. As a result, the Velar is the most aerodynamically efficient vehicle in Land Rover’s history.


If the Velar’s exterior represents a narrowed focus, its cabin takes an opposing path, emphasizing expressive lines, colors, and detail work. Sleekly modern, it’s one of Range Rover’s prime examples of interior opulence.

Leather covers most Velar seats, but optional premium grey textile (cloth) upholstery exudes an even greater sense of refined quality. Brushed aluminum accents and a leather-covered upper dashboard add to the premium aura. The base model uses synthetic leather and suede, but every Velar feels expensive.

Otherwise understated, the central console holds twin 10-inch infotainment touchscreens. Upper trim levels add a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. The infotainment system not only looks great, it responds well, despite lacking Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Front seats promise comfort during the longest drives. Rear seats are reasonably comfortable for most riders, but short on legroom for taller passengers. With rear seatbacks upright, cargo volume totals 34.4 cubic feet, expanding to 70.1 cubic feet with those seats folded down.

Driving Impressions

All three engines supply sufficient power, though they’re not especially refined. The supercharged V6 propels the Velar to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds, an impressive performance, but it doesn’t feel that swift.

Acceleration to 60 mph takes only a second longer with the gasoline turbo four, which doesn’t emit a confident note when pushed. Passing demands some planning ahead.

Despite abundant sound-deadening material, even the V6 doesn’t sound satisfying when accelerating hard. Picking the turbodiesel costs only $1,500 additional, though its economic value is most notable in long highway trips.

Behaving willingly but unobtrusively, the 8-speed automatic blends into the background. Slight hesitation might stifle downshifting to pass, with the four-cylinder engine. Paddle shifters help.

While steering accurately and confidently, the Velar provides limited feel through the steering wheel. Even in Sport mode, electric power steering feels somewhat artificial.

Big tires translate to a relatively rough ride. Picking tires no bigger than 20-inch is a sensible compromise, but a V6 version with its adjustable suspension might be wiser yet.

Off road, Velar performs as expected of a Land Rover, extremely well, in other words.

Neither Velar nor its rivals qualify as frugal. V6 versions are EPA-rated at 18/24 mpg City/Highway, or 20 mpg Combined. Gasoline-powered turbo-four models rate higher: 21/27/23 mpg. Turbodiesel models are the most efficient, EPA-rated at 26/30 mpg City/Highway, or 28 mpg Combined.


Every luscious Velar is opulently trimmed, down to the base model with its leatherette upholstery. Front seats are superior, cargo space excellent, materials exceptional. Technology is admirable, though active-safety features come mainly on upper trim levels. Multi-screen infotainment ranks as remarkable.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
