Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar OVERVIEW

Land Rover is closing the aspirational gap in its Range Rover line this summer with its first all-new model in years. Priced and sized between the Evoque and Range Rover Sport lines, the Velar – a name first used to disguise the creation of the Range Rover itself – is a high-tech, high-lux styling masterpiece that just happens be an SUV.

Designed with boulevard cruising in mind, the Velar nonetheless can be had with just about every on- and off-road goodie in the Land Rover line, starting at $50,895 (including a $995 destination charge) for the base model with a 247-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and ramping up quickly to the top-spec First Edition model with a 380-hp, supercharged, 3.0-liter V6 and an MSRP of $90,295.

What's New for 2018

The Velar is all new for 2018.

Choosing Your Land Rover Range Rover Velar

Land Rover will sell the Velar with three separate powertrains when it arrives in US showrooms later this year. The base model uses a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder with 247 horsepower, although a thriftier option might be the new 2.0-liter, 180-horsepower turbodiesel four. If you like speed, don't care about fuel economy, or simply need to tow something, the optional 3.0-liter, supercharged V6 and its 380 horsepower is the way to go. The EPA hasn't had a chance to evaluate the Velar's fuel economy yet.

Like all Land Rover models, the Range Rover Velar should be an exceptionally capable off-roader. Four-wheel drive is standard, while owners with deeper pockets can attach much of the same off-road electronic wizardry found on pricier Range Rover models, including Land Rover's excellent Terrain Response 2 system and an active rear differential that can lock and unlock automatically, based on conditions. V6-models get a standard air suspension that promises almost ten inches of ground clearance and on-road comfort to match the outright off-road ability.

All Velars come with a range of standard luxuries, including a panoramic sunroof, LED headlights, 18-inch wheels, Jaguar Land Rover's Adaptive Dynamics driving system, auto emergency braking, lane departure warning, and an eight-speaker stereo.

Land Rover is also making available to Velar buyers an upholstery woven from “sustainable resources” and paired with synthetic suede as an alternative to various cow hides. If you want to make your rumbling off-roader a little bit greener, this is a good way to go.

The Range Rover Velar is available in five separate trims, including the limited-run First Edition.

Base

The base Velar is only available with a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder. Standard equipment includes the gear mentioned above. Prices start at $50,895.

Optional equipment combinations include a Climate Package (four-zone climate control and a cooled glovebox for $870) and an On/Off-Road Package (Terrain Response 2, All Terrain Progress Control, and configurable dynamics for $580). The only standalone features are a $385 heated windshield, a $410 full-size spare tire, a $715 parallel/perpendicular parking assistant, and a $615 HD/satellite radio upgrade for the standard 10-inch infotainment system.

S

The Range Rover Velar S is the first trim level available with all three powertrain options. The P250 four-cylinder, turbocharged model starts at $55,695, while the diesel demands a $1,500 premium and the V6 is a $9,500 upgrade. The S trim adds 19-inch alloys, "premium" LED headlights with a daytime-running-light signature, leather upholstery, an 11-speaker stereo, and navigation.

Unlike the base Velar, the S model opens the door to a lot of optional equipment. While the Climate and On/Off-Road packages carry over with the same price and equipment, four driver assistance packages, a tow package, and a Convenience Package join them.

The Drive Package and Drive Pro Package – $570 and $2,065, respectively – bring with them a suite of electronic aids. The former includes blind-spot monitoring and traffic sign recognition with an adaptive speed limiter, while the latter adds adaptive cruise control with stop/go tech and lane-keeping assist to the roster.

A $765 Park Package and a $1,585 Park Pro Package take the guesswork out of parallel and perpendicular parking as well as reversing by adding rear-cross traffic alert and an around-view camera in the lesser package, and an actual parking assistant with the pricier Pro setup.

The $505 Convenience Package adds Land Rover's neat Activity Key, a wearable, waterproof wrist band that can lock and unlock the Velar without removing the main key fob. Finally, a North American Towing Package adds an around-view camera (if not included elsewhere) and a towing helper called Advance Tow Assist.

SE

The Range Rover Velar SE is the top standard Velar trim level and is available with only the V6 engine. Its $68,395 base price includes a move to 20-inch alloys, an upgraded 17-speaker (including subwoofer) audio system, driver condition monitor, and Drive Package as standard.

Audiophiles who find the SE's 825-watt system insufficient can upgrade to RR's peak 1,600-watt, 23-speaker setup for $3,060, and the remainder of the Drive Pro Package items can be had for $1,495. The vast majority of the Velar S' option packages transition to the SE with no or very minor changes.

R-Dynamic (SE and HSE)

The Range Rover Velar R-Dynamic is an appearance package for the Velar that offers all three Velar powertrain options in combination with the Velar SE's standard equipment. Velar R-Dynamic is available in SE and HSE trim levels, starting at $61,095 and $68,595, respectively, with the four-cylinder engine. Adding the diesel or V6 to either runs the same $1,500 and $9,500 as on the Velar S.

Exterior changes include bumper accents, hood and side vents in Burnished Copper and graphite-colored hood badge, tailgate script and grille (all of which can be blacked out for $635). Inside, it adds satin chrome gearshift paddles and bright metal pedals.

Regardless of which engine you choose, making the $7,500 leap to an HSE adds exactly that amount in individually-available-on-an-SE options: 21-inch wheels ($1,430), perforated Windsor leather ($4,575), and the Drive Pro Package.

First Edition

For those who want things simple – or at least as simple as ordering such an option-rich vehicle can be – and are willing to spend six figures on a Velar rather than on the more established Range Rover Sport or larger Range Rover, Land Rover offers the $90,295 Velar First Edition model. As the name implies, the First Edition is limited to the first year of production, but it's even more limited than that: only 500 are being built.

Each will come with everything Land Rover offers on the V6-powered Velar R-Dynamic HSE plus "the very finest touches and options [i.e. everything you can pay extra for on "lesser" Velars] as standard." The one choice purchasers will have to make – if they act quickly enough – is which of the three different silver satin exterior paint colors they prefer.

CarsDirect Tip

With enough patience and attention to detail, you can actually outfit a Velar with most of the best equipment it has to offer without breaking the $70,000 barrier. Skipping the purely aesthetic R-Dynamic trim – actually, all the fancy paint, trim and wheel options – in favor of the better-equipped $55,695 Velar S will allow you to add the safety, climate control and entertainment packages you want without spending extra on things you don’t.
