Range Rover Velar: 3 Engine Options
There are three engines to choose from with the Velar, and all of them are mated to a smooth 8-speed automatic transmission. The base engine is a turbocharged 4-cylinder, capable of producing 247-horsepower. The Velar also offers a supercharged V6 engine, which packs a powerful 380-horsepower punch for those looking to get a leg up when driving on the highway. The last engine is a 2-liter 180-horsepower turbocharged diesel, which provides better fuel economy than the other two engines.
The base 4-cylinder engine gets 21 MPG in the city and 27 MPG on the highway, competitive numbers when compared to other vehicles in this class. The turbodiesel engine requires even fewer trips the pump, getting 26 MPG in the city and 30 MPG on the highway.
Cargo Space and Interior Dimensions
There are voluminous amounts of cargo space in the Range Rover Velar, and you can play around with the space to customize it to your liking. There’s 34.4 cu. ft. of space behind the second row, enough room for quite a few bags from the store or even a piece of furniture. The three-way split-folding rear seat can be folded down for even more space. When folding the seat down, it can open up a whole new way to store items, providing just over 70 cu. ft. of space.
This five-seater is cozy for those riding in the front and the back, too. The 40.3 in. of front leg room gives both driver and front passenger enough room to stretch out, and the second-row leg room, which checks in at 37.2 in., is spacious enough for daily driving.

Dual-zone climate control also comes standard, so everyone in the vehicle is comfortable at all times. A panoramic sunroof also comes standard if you’re looking to let a little light in.
Making a few upgrades is easy, too. The base 2018 Velar comes with a powerful 8-speaker sound system, but you can step up to the 11-speaker Meridian system, or 17-speaker surround-sound system. An available Wi-Fi hotspot also lets you connect up to eight devices, so everyone in the cabin can use phones or tablets with ease on a long drive.
