Buyer beware
Lane Gleeson, 3/1/2018
I would strongly suggest anyone interested in purchasing a Velar to reconsider. The vehicle’s defrost does not work which is the largest issue. We’ve been told there is a temporary fix.. so we spent $75k on a car that is completely unsafe to drive. The thing that upsets me the most is that this was a demo, whoever drove the car that works at the dealership for 3k miles should have known this. Why wasn’t the issue fixed before selling it?!? In addition the screens continually stop working while driving so we cannot see any of the necessary items while driving (speed, rpms, etc.). Now the sunroof is refusing to close. BUYERS BEWARE. We will be trading in this car ASAP. It’s just so unfortunate that we will lose money on it when these should have been non issues. I will never purchase a Range Rover ever again and I will spread the word. They were clearly not ready to release the Velar but did so anyways.
Velar looks good, feels great
Glenn H, 1/2/2018
We were looking for a medium-size SUV with sharp exterior styling and luxurious interior, so settled on the new Velar as the best intersection of those qualities with reasonable cost. It seats five adults fairly comfortably and has enough cargo room for trips. We found a few other purchase options that were somewhat similar, but weighed at least 500 pounds more and cost at least $10K more. Only one option, the Porsche Macan, had a sportier look and drive feel, but it was compromised in terms of rear seat room and cargo space. We also like the bigger Range Rover Sport, but it's interior (at that time), while luxurious, was dated compared to the extremely modern, clean layout of the Velar's. We were reluctant to buy any four-cylinder car, but the surprising torque of the 247-hp Velar 250 won us over in the end. It's no hotrod, but we drove a long trip in it and never felt it was underpowered. We live in a moderate climate, so didn't care much about the Velar's cold weather features (four heated seats, heated steering wheel, remote start/warmup) , but they worked very well when we traveled to a colder area. The electronics may be the best thing about the Velar. The standard sound system is quite adequate and the navigation is good for an automotive system. (No built-in automobile nav is in in the same league as Google Maps on a cell phone.) But the three-section display of the Velar is as good as it gets. Big touchscreens and very configurable. The net result is a non-geek driver can set up the controls so they can actually be used without reading the manual every time you want to do something. Most modern cars have more electronic features than any driver can use, but the Velar's seem intuitive enough that someone can use the important ones. So far, we are getting a little over 21 miles to the gallon of premium gas. That seems subjectively a bit low, but for a 4200 pound car is acceptable. During the first six months of driving the Velar, the only glitch has been a dead battery, which is still somewhat mysterious, but very likely has to do with what I call "pseudo-shutdown." When in "eco" mode the engine can mimic a shut off when the transmission is placed in Park. The instrument panel does not give a clear indication of a problem (especially with lights in delayed-off auto mode), so it is possible to leave the car's ignition on in the garage. This will drain the battery completely within 36-48 hours. Or so it seems to me and the techs at the Range Rover dealership. The only other unwelcome surprise is the black roof trim of the R-Dynamic package. It looks great, but the pillars are made of plastic so soft that absolutely all brush-type car washes leave noticeable permanent swirl marks.
NOT WORTH THE MONEY, TOO MANY PROBLEMS
anonymous, 6/12/2018
Unfortunately I purchased the vehicle in 02/2018 and the car has been in the dealer 3 times already with check engine and just yesterday it went into malfunction of park brak & emergency park putting the car in no driveable mode, and again leaving me stranded, worst part is calling your dealer and they have no idea how to solve the problem, just give you the roadside assistance to tow your car. The other times the car has had the sensor for the gas cap replaced already since its also malfunction giving you a check engine problem
Disappointed Velar Owner
Dc89, 4/25/2018
P250 SE R-Dynamic. Nice but it has issues from DAY 1. □2 weeks in and the dealership has never gotten the data plan working. □MPG is reasonable but it has a small 15 gallon tank. □My biggest complaint is "voice control" isnt an option to use the GPS. What kinda BS is that? There is an App to enter your destinations from your phone but its inconvenient when your already on the move. □Cant lock the doors from the outside with the engine running. I have a few more questions for my tech when he/she visits that I won't air here. After 1 week, they give you a tutorial.(Im 2 weeks in) ■Great looking ■Very smooth ride ■Dash layout is very customizable Bottom line, I should have sat with the Tech guy before I made the purchase. The car has some great features but some things don't make since.

More about the 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar

The 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar is a stylish and comfortable addition to an exclusive family of luxury SUVs. In the Range Rover line, it slots between the subcompact Evoque and the midsize Sport. Like other Range Rovers, it comes in a variety of trim levels that reflect different levels of equipment and cosmetic changes, though all come with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.

Each trim level above the base model has access to three engine choices: a supercharged V6 and two turbocharged inline four-cylinders (one powered by gas and the other by diesel). Likewise, most features are available as stand-alone options, so you can pick upgrades that are standard on costlier models without having to pay for things you don't plan on using.

The 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar is offered in base, S, R-Dynamic SE, R-Dynamic HSE, and First Edition trim levels. The entry-level base trim is called Velar and has the bare minimum of features, including simulated-leather seating and a rearview camera. Also, it's only available with the gas-powered four-cylinder. That's why it's worth stepping up to the S. It not only includes the features you expect in a luxury SUV — such as leather seats and auto-dimming mirrors — but it also can be optioned with all the equipment and features available on higher trim levels.

The R-Dynamic SE and the HSE gain more expressive exteriors in the form of new bodywork and larger wheels, while additional comfort and driver assistance features, such as blind-spot monitoring and a more powerful stereo, warrant the jump in price. Lastly, you think of the First Edition as an HSE with most of the options as standard equipment, including a suite of off-road equipment and seats with heating, ventilation and massage functions.

The Velar is difficult to compare against other premium SUVs because it's bigger than traditional compacts and smaller than most midsize models. The Range Rover name also means a premium price, even among luxury marquees. Ultimately, these characteristics make the Velar a unique offering. And if that's what you're looking for, let Edmunds' superior shopping and research tools help find the perfect 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar for you.
