If you’re comparing the 2023 Range Rover Evoque vs. Range Rover Velar, then it’s pretty safe to say that you can’t lose. With that said, these two models fulfill different roles in the Range Rover lineup: the Evoque is an accessible entry-level luxury off-road SUV; the Velar is a stylish and even more luxurious alternative that costs $14,000 more. Our in-depth guide covers the main differences between 2023 Range Rover Evoque and Range Rover Velar SUVs, so you can make the right choice.

Range Rover Evoque vs. Velar: Pricing

A new 2023 Range Rover Velar starts at $60,300 MSRP*—which is already more expensive than the most luxurious Range Rover Evoque. The latter SUV starts at just $46,400 MSRP when purchased brand new, and that means it’s often a better choice for buyers on a strict budget.

The new Evoque offers five trims in total, while the Velar offers four. You’ll pay just under $80,000 for the most expensive Velar—but since this model offers more power and more features than any Evoque on the market, you just might decide that it’s worth every penny.

Range Rover Evoque vs. Velar: Performance and Capability

Both of these models come standard with a four-cylinder engine, and you’ll get either 246 hp and 247 hp with the Evoque or the Velar, respectively. If you don’t want or need more power, you may be able to save by choosing the Evoque over its sibling.

With that said, Delray Beach’s performance enthusiasts may not be satisfied by the Evoque’s sole upgrade: a 296-hp i4 that’s restricted to the range-topping trim.

Those who choose the Velar will have two upgrade options: a 340-hp i6 and a 400-hp i6.

Choosing the stronger vehicle gives you an edge in practical matters, too: the Velar can tow up to 5,511 pounds, around 1,500 pounds more than the strongest Range Rover Evoque.

Range Rover Evoque vs. Velar: Standard Features

You’ll get features like Pivi Pro, Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, and leather seats no matter which model you select. However, those who compare these Range Rover SUVs will notice several important differences inside the cabin:

  • Audio: The Velar comes standard with 12 speakers from Meridian™. The Evoque has just six speakers as standard.
  • Infotainment: You’ll get two central touchscreens in the Velar: one upper screen for your entertainment controls, and a lower one for climate settings. The Evoque has just one central touchscreen, unless you decide to upgrade your trim level.

So, should you choose the 2023 Range Rover Evoque or Range Rover Velar? Savvy Boca Raton and Wellington drivers will recognize that the cheaper Evoque actually has advantages in two important areas: it’s the only model in this matchup to offer standard wireless device charging and standard Terrain Response® 2. If you’re hoping to go off-road (and save money for bigger trips and toys), the Evoque just might be the smarter choice.

Range Rover Evoque vs. Velar: Dimensions

And yet: drivers who choose the Velar over the Evoque will have more room for cargo behind the rear seats! The Velar also has a lot more second-row legroom, making it the more comfortable choice for longer drives:

2023 Range Rover Evoque Dimensions

  • 21.6 cubic feet of cargo space behind the 2nd row
  • 38.9 inches / 38.3 inches of front / rear headroom
  • 40 inches / 34 inches of front / rear legroom

2023 Range Rover Velar Dimensions

  • 30.9 cubic feet of cargo space behind the 2nd row
  • 38.1 inches / 38.9 inches of front / rear headroom
  • 40.3 inches / 37.2 inches of front / rear legroom
