Land Rover Range Rover Sport Vs Land Rover Range Rover Velar

Boot capacity comes in three sizes, depending on which seats are raised or lowered. With all seats upright, load space is a modest 157 litres, enough for a few grocery bags or some soft luggage. Worth noting the third-row seat is standard, and removing it is a no-cost option, the trade-off being the move to a full-size spare wheel and tyre rather than the otherwise standard space-saver. Where the Sport may leave something to be desired, though, is in the many driver-assist features that it doesn’t offer standard.

  • The Range Rover Sport is a midsize SUV that competes with the likes of the Porsche Cayenne and BMW X6.
  • Read on to learn more about which Range Rover might be right for you.
  • The new car has not only been designed with women buyers in mind, but even offers an ethical ‘vegetarian option’ which replaces the luxury leather seats with coverings made from recycled plastic bottles.
  • Land Rover is lining up alongside sister company Jaguar to push past Porsche in the super-sporty mid-size SUV class.
  • The variable rack means that Range Rover’s engineers didn’t sacrifice road responsiveness for off-road usability.
  • The waiting time for a new Velar is dependent on how weird a combination of options you choose.

The Velar also gets praise for its level of detailing throughout the cabin. These include All Terrain Progress Control, a low-speed cruise control for driving on slippery surfaces; and Terrain Response 2, which automatically selects the right driving mode for the traction conditions. Both SUVs offer a wide variety of engines, from high-performing V-8s to fuel-sipping turbo-fours.

Which Vehicle Is Right For You, The Sport Or The Velar?

With a top speed of 140 mph, a 395 hp engine on the HST model, and the ability to go from 0 to 60 in just 6.0 seconds, this vehicle has some truly robust capabilities. In fact, new for 2022, Land Rover has taken the diesel and plug-in-hybrid powertrains out of the Range Rover Sport’s lineup, leaving just the turbocharged inline-six on the market. While no Land Rover or Range Rover comes standard with 7-Seat capacity, many of our vehicles in stock do have that option, particularly on the Land Rover Discovery and the Defender 110. The four-cylinder engines get genuinely impressive service intervals of 24 months/34,000km, while the V6 requires a trip to the dealership every 12 months or 26,000km.

But the twin-scroll turbo’s contribution means every one of those torques (actually newton-metres) is available from just 1250rpm, all the way to 4500rpm. The SE builds again with about a $5000 price increase, with 20-inch alloys, a 17-speaker stereo, side parking sensors, digital dash, matrix LED headlights, self parking, scuff plates and reverse cross traffic alert. As mentioned earlier, Land Rover makes no bones about the fact that the third row is best for kids, but having that occasional seating capacity can be a godsend in helping the car accommodate extra family friends or relatives. There are cup/bottle holders and small elasticised storage pockets for each ‘way-back’ seater. When you’ve got 50-something models to choose from, it’s very difficult to suggest – or even guess – at the sweet spot in such a large range.

And a bellowing 405kW 5.0-litre supercharged V8, which, in other JLR cars, can wake the dead, so with the variable active exhaust, prepare for neighbours complaining. There’s no sat nav (an almost $2000 option) on this car, which would be fine if it hadApple CarPlay and Android Auto. Which, for a solid $520 via the ‘Smartphone Pack’, you can have. Cheaper than sat nav, yes, but it would be nice if it were standard.

Expect to pay around $5,000 per year for maintenance costs and nearly $4,500 in repairs. Still, our limited wheel time means we’ll be reserving final judgement until we can spend more time with each variant, but our taste-test sample reveals a car that does appear to straddle that line between capable and comfortable. On our brief tarmac drive we were surprised by the smooth and steady power delivery of the bigger four-cylinder diesel, which propels the two-tonne-plus Land Rover along with surprising ease.

The price variation is even bigger if you compare the top trims of both models. The 550-hp Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic starts at $91,815, and the 575-hp Sport SVR goes for an insane $115,795. JLR’s 2.0-litre four-cylinder ‘Ingenium’ range underpins the Velar’s powertrains and are available in petrol or diesel with single or twin turbos. Of course, being a Range Rover, four-wheel drive is standard across the range. Neither the Sport nor the Velar have been crash test rated by the Department of Transportation or IIHS. That said, both models come with automatic emergency braking and front and rear park assist.
