The limited offer for the 2020 Range Rover Velar will include top of the class SVAutobiography Dynamic edition. The trim level is going to deliver the most power. Of course, that means the highest price as well. On the other hand, if you plan to spend big for the compact premium crossover, plan the leasing quickly, since the SVAutobiography Dynamic for the new Velar is not going to be available for the purchase after 2020 season.
Well, this is not the only trim level available for the crossover. The 2020 Range Rover Velar is also offering various kinds of engines, starting from four-cylinder units, over V6 drivetrain, and the new edition comes with a V8. An output of 550 hp seems to be too much for the compact crossover. Furthermore, lovers of a diesel power can find a mill consuming this type of fuel as well. Different trim levels are there, and additional features come extra and boost the overall impression and price. Velar remains a bigger version of the Evoque.
2020 Range Rover Velar Features
The 2020 Range Rover Velar belongs to the premium compact crossover segment. As every luxury model by JLR, this one comes with some of the most advanced features in the entire class. For example, the dual 10-inch screen is something you can’t find elsewhere. One is used for the entertaining system and another one is part of a dashboard. Both are possible to tilt and set them up for better transparency. As a premium model, Velar will come with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard accessories. 8-speaker audio is installed in base models. Upper trims come with Meridian surround audio with more speakers. Navigation is left out from the base list of features, while there are audio commands, USB ports, and many other available accessories.
Options and Safety
The biggest upgrade for the 2020 Range Rover Velar is an addition of the SVAutobiography Dynamic model. The features list is not available yet, but be sure this one will come with the most exclusive offer Velar have ever had. Still, the price of the compact model will skyrocket. Well, the base MSRP is above the competition. The new Velar will start at $50k.Other options include R-Dynamic SE and HSE models. All of them are coming with different engines.
Another thing why you should consider the 2020 Range Rover Velar as one of the options for purchase is safety. The previous edition was rated pretty high. The new crossover will use a rearview camera for all trims. Also, there is an emergency braking system and lane departure alert. Of course, buyers can upgrade the safety with traffic recognition system, or blind-spot monitor. A 360-degree camera is available as an additional purchase, or through upper trim levels.
2020 Range Rover Velar Specs
The engine room of the 2020 Range Rover Velar is one of the most versatile ever. Diesel and petrol engines could be found there. This is not as impressive as the option to build a compact crossover with a V8 engine. That is exactly what the new SVAutobiography Dynamic brings. A 5.0-liter supercharged unit is already part of the lineup in some larger vehicles by JLR. Now, it will be ready to crunch over 550 hp for the crossover. We are sure that engineers are building only an AWD system with this drivetrain. An 8-speed automatic transmission is a power router, and the new version will return only 20 mpg on the highway.
This is a huge drop from 30 mpg a 2.0-liter four-pot unit is returning. Well, this is a diesel engine that puts out 180 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque. The same displacement that uses petrol as fuel comes with higher outputs – 250 horsepower and 270 pound-feet. The most powerful edition so far offered a 3.0-liter V6 engine with 380 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque. All engines are paired with an eight-speed transmission and all-wheel drive is standard. Some models will come with different drive modes.
One thing is sure – the 2020 Range Rover Velar will come with the hefty price. A compact crossover that costs $50,000 must offer impressive features. Yes, the JLR is a leader in this, but still, for this amount of money, you can purchase the full-size Toyota Sequoia. Since the lineup is unchanged, we expect the same prices for the rest of the lineup which is currently available. The base price is not staying put for too long, and the R-Dynamic HSE version will cost you over $75,000.
The new 2020 Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic will cost the most. We still don’t have estimations, but don’t be surprised if the new crossover hits $100,000. The full-size Range Rover with this package costs $177,000. The smaller crossover is not going to offer all the things its largest sibling can do. Still, this is the luxury model with a V8 engine and it is really hard to find the competitor that will offer 550 hp.
