For instance, what is the difference between the Range Rover Velar and the Range Rover Sport? Which would be a better option for you?

Range Rover Velar vs. Range Rover Sport

The first thing to notice about these two vehicles is that their differences lie beneath the surface. They both provide drivers with chiseled, and muscular, exterior designs that are sure to command the road with authority and power. However, the Velar is slightly more aerodynamic with more curves in its body, and a roof better designed to slice through wind.

Speaking of power, the Range Rover Sport provides you with more raw power than the Range Rover Velar. With the former you can get from 254 to 575 horsepower, depending on the trim level you choose. The Range Rover Velar can provide you from 247 to 380 horsepower -- still respectable, but if you are looking for power in your driving experience the Range Rover Sport has more of an edge. However, if you are choosing the SE trim level, the Range Rover Velar will offer you a slight edge in power (380 horsepower to the Sport's 254 horsepower), as most of the true power of the Sport comes with trim levels like the SVR.

In terms of fuel economy, both of these vehicles are very efficient on the road. However, the Range Rover Sport has a larger fuel tank capacity, which means it can store more fuel and ultimately get you further with each tank of gas.

If you are interested in towing capacities, then you may love the Sport that much more! The Range Rover Velar SE can tow up to 5,511 pounds, while the Range Rover Sport SE can tow up to 7,716 pounds.

When comparing these factors, it is also important to compare price, so you can get an ideas as to where your money is going. These two vehicles are closely priced, however the Range Rover Velar is slightly more affordable with a base MSRP of $67,400, as compared to the Range Rover Sport's base MSRP of $68,750.

All in all, the Range Rover Velar is more affordable, and has a slightly more aerodynamic body, while the Range Rover Sport is more expensive, but offers a better range of horsepower, a large fuel tank, and a higher towing capacity.
