2024 Range Rover Evoque vs. Range Rover Velar

Range Rover Evoque vs. Land Rover Range Rover Velar at Land Rover Easton

The Range Rover essentially invented the luxury SUV segment when it debuted, and today it still sets the standard. And today it also includes new Range Rover models that offer all of the style and luxury of the flagship model, but in a smaller and more practical package. After all, not everyone needs space for 7 in their daily driver. But the differences between the newer Range Rovers might not be immediately apparent, so Land Rover Easton put together this helpful guide to explain just how the Velar and the Evoque differ.

As you can see, the base trims of these two are incredibly similar in a number of key ways. You get a bit more towing capacity from the Velar, and a higher top speed in the Evoque, although neither of those is likely to be major factors for the average buyer. It might leave you wondering why the Velar costs more, but that’s exactly why we’re going to dive a little deeper.

We can once again see a number of similarities between the two models, but some more differences start to emerge as well. The Velar is longer, with a longer wheelbase as well. It’s a bit taller too, even though it sits just as far off the ground. To see what this translates into for interior space, we’ll take another look.

Here it becomes much more obvious what the difference is between these two models. The Velar is more spacious across every category. And while this doesn’t make much of a difference in some areas, like front legroom; those who are looking to carry a lot of luggage, or will often have adults riding in the back seat, might want to look to the Velar rather than the Evoque.
