It's difficult to distinguish yourself in the crowded compact luxury SUV segment. However, the 2019 Range Rover Velar stands out for its style, and drivers in New Orleans and Metairie are already paying attention.

In this car review, we at Land Rover New Orleans want to walk you through some of the standout qualities in this crossover. From its looks to its cabin comforts to its performance, there's a lot to get excited about!

Velar Engine Performance Specs

There's a trio of engines available in the 2019 Range Rover Velar, each of which comes mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Let's look closer at those engines:

  • Turbocharged 2.0L Gasoline 4-Cylinder: 247 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque
  • Turbocharged 2.0L Diesel 4-Cylinder: 180 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque
  • Supercharged 3.0L Gasoline V6: 380 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque

The supercharged V6 is the most potent in the lineup, and it boosts towing capacity to an impressive 5,512 pounds. That's enough pulling power to trailer a small boat or RV!

Sophisticated Exterior Features

With its slim headlamps, clamshell bonnet, signature squarish frame, and a tapering roof, the 2019 Range Rover Velar looks strikingly contemporary for a crossover SUV. Its continuous waistline trails unbroken from the windshield to the very back of the vehicle, lending this ride an athletic, sporty look.

The A, B, and C pillars are blacked out, too, creating a "floating roof" that appears visually separate from the body of the vehicle. It adds a sense of lightness and speed to your ride, so the Range Rover Velar looks fast even while standing still.

Among our favorite features are the flush door handles. These handles retract into the doors when not in use, lending this crossover a clean, smooth outer shell with incredible aerodynamism-and reduced wind noise.

Stylish Cabin: Interior Features

The cabin of the 2019 Range Rover Velar looks just as modern as the exterior-and it earns an A+ for comfort, too. Configurable ambient lighting lets you add some visual brilliance to your ride, as well as change it to match your mood.

The split-sliding armrests are another luxury feature. They're designed to help driver and front passenger maximize their comfort, all without interrupting the other. Top-notch upholstery options like perforated leather and a rich wool blend only add to rider comfort.

Technology is another strong point in this SUV. The InControl® Touch Pro Duo™ infotainment features two 10-inch touchscreens. One is mounted in the dash and can turn up to 30 degrees for better viewing, while the other is mounted directly underneath.
