The luxury SUV segment has plenty of options that provide you with standout choices. Here at Land Rover Glen Cove, we have the answers in our collection of standout luxury vehicles in our showroom serving Oyster Bay, Port Washington, and New Hyde Park. Among these is the new and exciting Range Rover Velar. It's been attracting a lot of attention as a small SUV that delivers on quality, performance, and luxury features that everyone craves.

Of course, learning how it stands up against rivals in its segment is important, and we understand that. It's why we've taken the time to compare the Range Rover Velar to the Porsche Macan, so you can see that though similar in nature, both are very different vehicles. We're confident that you'll see when it comes to a full luxury SUV experience, the Range Rover Velar covers all the bases.

Land Rover Velar vs. Porsche Macan

Design and Appearance

The Range Rover Velar and the Porsche Macan differ in their overall design and style. Each take after specific brand cues, as the Porsche goes for the sporty look, while the Range Rover Velar certainly has plenty of sporty features, it also comes with the iconic styling of the Land Rover Range Rover brand. That includes its grille and headlight combination, as well as its roofline and rear, which offers you more space in back over the Porsche Macan, as the Range Rover Velar is meant for those who seek out adventure and need the room for their supplies and cargo, as it's a bigger vehicle. The Range Rover Velar also features flush door handles, which means the door handles deploy and are retractable when not in use for a clean look through the exterior or the vehicle, while also giving it that futuristic innovative feel all around, which is something you won't find on the Macan.

Interior and Technology

Inside is where innovation and luxury lives with the Range Rover Velar. Drivers will find that the entire inside provides a comfortable experience with the finest materials, highlighting earthy tones and putting your comfort first. Drivers will find Land Rover InControl® for your infotainment needs, a full 12.3-inch information display, a simple and easy to utilize central stack with climate control, and much more in a touchscreen setup, along with available rear seat entertainment with two eight-inch screens, and much more in the way of protective safety and connective technology. The Porsche Macan offers similar features, but has a different experience inside as it is designed as a sports car. The Range Rover Velar provides a comprehensive luxury experience, and smooth ride that you know is fully capable and ready to service you in a variety of ways.

Performance and Capability

Both the Range Rover and Porsche Macan feature four-cylinder engines, as well as available V6 options and deliver similar numbers in horsepower, but in terms of being a comprehensive overall drive that can do more with its engine and capability, the Range Rover Velar has the advantage. You'll find that with the Range Rover Velar, you're getting Terrain Response® 2 on an all-wheel drive platform available. The Macan has all-wheel drive as well, but when it comes to off-road pedigree, you go with the Range Rover Velar. Drivers will find features like Hill Descent Control and an electronic air suspension which allows you to lift the vehicle up slightly for better ground clearance on uneven surfaces, something that the Macan doesn't offer. You'll also feel confident towing and loading up the Range Rover Velar and taking it out on an adventure, while the Macan has some of that capability, but is better suited on the pavement.
