2023 Range Rover Sport: Vs. the Velar....

 










While the new 2023 Range Rover Sport does look great, I don't think it looks better than the excellent Velar.

The Velar does look sportier and lower. And the new Sport still looks much more upright and square.

So yes, they do look different. But one doesn't really look more upscale than the other.

At $ 83 000 to start, it is over $25 000 over the base Velar. Although if you want a 6-cylinder in the Velar, it will set you back at least $65 000. 

The base Range Rover Sport engine in the US will be the 3.0 Liter I6 with 355HP. A PHEV will also be available. With 434HP and an excellent and very useable 48 miles EV range. Unfortunately, the cool PHEV powertrain is only available in the super lux Autobiography version and starts at a crazy        $105 000...

The Velar imo is the most attractive SUV on the road at the moment. That said, it is WAY out of my budget, and it's a Land Rover, so reliability is 🤷‍♂️ at best.
