For example, if you're torn between the Land Rover Range Rover Velar and the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, we've got the inside scoop on all the details for both, to help you compare them and choose the one that suits your personality.

Exterior Design and Style

As members of the Range Rover family within the Land Rover lineup, both of these models have signature Range Rover design elements, including a prominent front grille and similar headlight designs. But dive a little deeper and you'll find a few areas where they differ. While both have four doors and a rear liftgate, the Range Rover Velar is the slightly larger SUV. It measures 2 inches wider, 1 inch taller, and 16 inches longer than the Range Rover Evoque. Plus, it has a wider wheelbase that is about 8 inches wider than the smaller model.

Power and Performance

The compact Range Rover Evoque offers a single engine for its entire lineup, a nice, turbocharged four-cylinder powertrain with a standard 246 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. Comparatively, the larger Range Rover Velar model has a menu of powertrains you can choose from to customize your ride, including a similar turbocharged four-cylinder base engine and a more-powerful, supercharged V6 that's augmented by a mildly hybrid 48-volt electrical system. Regardless of which you choose and how much power you want, however, both SUVs have the signature Land Rover off-road prowess and performance that fans have known and loved since the 1940s.

Interior Design and Space

As the larger of the two SUVs, it's no surprise that the Range Rover Velar has a larger cargo area than the Range Rover Evoque. Both offer plenty of space for your groceries, golf clubs, and more, but the larger model has 34.3 cubic feet available behind the back row, while the Range Rover Evoque has 21.6 cubic feet with all seats in place. When it comes to the comfort of your ride from Brooklyn to Freeport, both SUVs have similar amounts of headroom and legroom in the front seat, with the Range Rover Velar offering slightly more rear seat legroom.


As world-class Land Rover SUVs, you can count on both of these models to deliver the latest tech and safety features you're looking for. In fact, they offer similar rosters of standard and optional amenities, including the latest Land Rover infotainment technology called Pivi Pro, which both models get standard.
