Product Overview

Land Rover Range Rover Velar (chassis code L560) facelift is a mid-size crossover in production from 2020. It is available with a range of inline-4 and inline-6 engines that displaced 2.0 to 3.0 liters.
Compared to the RR Sport, the Velar is notably shorter and less practical. It is, nonetheless, more handsome and capable compared to the joke called Evoque.
Those who drive offroad, for work or leisure, will appreciate the approach, departure, and breakover angles that the chassis offers. The official fuel economy rating is exceptionally rosy, though it may cast more doubts on the trustworthiness of the regulators and perhaps the owner's own sanity than it relates to reality.
Compared to the pre-facelift, the facelifted Velar has a new engine lineup.

Sentiment Score 69%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
Range Rover Velar is the latest addition to Land Rover's Range Rover line-up. The Velar name goes back to the 1960s, when it was used as an alias to disguise original Range Rover prototypes. It plugs the gap between the Evoque and the Range Rover Sport, meaning that there's now less of a gulf between Range Rover's entry-level offering and its larger SUVs.

Pros
  • Gorgeous design
  • Good range of engines
  • Stylish looks
Cons
  • High list price
  • Expensive for what you get

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography is a deeply impressive performance SUV. It prioritises comfort over handling, making its cabin a wonderful place to while away the miles. And then there's the ballistic engine, which for many will be worth the asking price on its own.

Pros
  • Powerful V8
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Excellent standard equipment
Cons
  • A little slow to respond

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
With 398bhp and 640NM of torque from the electric motor and 2.0-litre petrol engine combined, this Velar will get from 0-60mph in just 5.1 seconds. CO2 emissions is what gets the company car benefit-in-kind tax down to 11 per cent (versus 37 per cent for a pure petrol model). That equates to 130mpg if you can replicate the official WLTP economy tests. The 17.1kWh battery will supposedly get you 33 miles on electric power alone.

Pros
  • Powerful petrol engine
  • Impressive economy
  • Decent infotainment system
Cons
  • Pricier than rivals
  • Noisy in Hybrid mode

Sentiment Score 59%
Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following***:
The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition is the one to get. If you can afford it, the V8 powertrain adds a sporty character other Velar models are missing. Land Rover hasn't set a firm production cap, but a spokesperson told Digital Trends that the company only expects to make 500 of these special editions.

Pros
  • Powerful V8 engine
  • Comfortable ride
  • Good off-road performance
Cons
  • Lackluster infotainment system
  • Lack of standard features
