Safety

Both the Range Rover Velar and Allroad have child safety locks to prevent children from opening the rear doors. The Range Rover Velar has power child safety locks, allowing the driver to activate and deactivate them from the driver's seat and to know when they're engaged. The Allroad’s child locks have to be individually engaged at each rear door with a manual switch. The driver can’t know the status of the locks without opening the doors and checking them.

The Range Rover Velar’s optional driver alert monitor detects an inattentive driver then sounds a warning and suggests a break. According to the NHTSA, drivers who fall asleep cause about 100,000 crashes and 1500 deaths a year. The Allroad doesn’t offer a driver alert monitor.

Both the Range Rover Velar and the Allroad have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front and rear seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, all wheel drive, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, crash mitigating brakes, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, available blind spot warning systems, around view monitors and rear cross-path warning.

Engine

The Range Rover Velar P380’s standard 3.0 supercharged V6 produces 132 more horsepower (380 vs. 248) and 59 lbs.-ft. more torque (332 vs. 273) than the Allroad’s 2.0 turbo 4 cyl.

The Range Rover Velar’s 2.0 turbo diesel produces 44 lbs.-ft. more torque (317 vs. 273) than the Allroad’s 2.0 turbo 4 cyl.

Fuel Economy and Range

Regenerative brakes improve the Range Rover Velar’s fuel efficiency by converting inertia back into energy instead of wasting it. The Allroad doesn’t offer a regenerative braking system.

The Range Rover Velar’s standard fuel tank has 6.3 gallons more fuel capacity than the Allroad (21.6 vs. 15.3 gallons).

Transmission

An eight-speed automatic is standard on the Land Rover Range Rover Velar, for better acceleration and lower engine speed on the highway. Only a seven-speed automatic is available for the Allroad.

Brakes and Stopping

For better stopping power the Range Rover Velar’s front brake rotors are larger than those on the Allroad:

Tires and Wheels

For better traction, the Range Rover Velar has larger standard tires than the Allroad (255/50R20 vs. 245/45R18). The Range Rover Velar’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the Allroad (265/45R21 vs. 245/45R18).

The Range Rover Velar’s optional tires provide better handling because they have a lower 40 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the Allroad’s 45 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Range Rover Velar offers optional 21-inch wheels. The Allroad’s largest wheels are only 18-inches.

Suspension and Handling

The Range Rover Velar P380 has a standard automatic front and rear load leveling suspension to keep ride height level with a heavy load or when towing. The Range Rover Velar’s height leveling suspension allows the driver to raise ride height for better off-road clearance and then lower it again for easier entering and exiting and better on-road handling. The Allroad doesn’t offer a load leveling suspension.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Range Rover Velar’s wheelbase is 2.2 inches longer than on the Allroad (113.1 inches vs. 110.9 inches).

For better handling and stability, the average track (width between the wheels) on the Range Rover Velar is 2.6 inches wider in the front and 3.6 inches wider in the rear than the track on the Allroad.

The Range Rover Velar S handles at .82 G’s, while the Allroad Premium Plus pulls only .81 G’s of cornering force in a Motor Trend skidpad test.

For greater off-road capability the Range Rover Velar has a 1.9 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the Allroad (8.4 vs. 6.5 inches), allowing the Range Rover Velar to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged. The Range Rover Velar P380’s minimum ground clearance is 3.4 inches higher than on the Allroad (9.9 vs. 6.5 inches).

Passenger Space

The Range Rover Velar has 1.3 inches more front shoulder room, .6 inches more rear headroom, 1.5 inches more rear legroom and 1.1 inches more rear shoulder room than the Allroad.

For enhanced passenger comfort on long trips the Range Rover Velar S/SE/HSE’s rear seats recline. The Allroad’s rear seats don’t recline.

Cargo Capacity

The Range Rover Velar has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat up than the Allroad with its rear seat up (34.4 vs. 24.2 cubic feet). The Range Rover Velar has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat folded than the Allroad with its rear seat folded (70.1 vs. 58.5 cubic feet).

Pressing a switch automatically lowers the Range Rover Velar’s optional rear seats, to make changing between passengers and cargo easier. The Allroad doesn’t offer automatic folding seats.

Ergonomics

Unlike the driver-only memory seat and mirrors optional at extra cost in the Allroad, the Range Rover Velar HSE has a passenger memory, so that when drivers switch, the memory setting adjusts the driver’s seat, steering wheel position (with optional power wheel adjuster) and outside mirror angle and the front passenger seat also adjusts to the new passenger’s preset preferences.

The Range Rover Velar (except Base)’s optional Entry and Exit Mode raises the steering wheel when the door is unlocked or the ignition is switched off, making it easier for the driver to get in and out. The Allroad doesn’t offer an easy entry system.

To improve rear visibility by keeping the rear window clear, the Range Rover Velar has a standard rear speed-sensitive intermittent wiper with a full on position. The rear wiper standard on the Allroad only has an intermittent setting, so in a hard rain visibility isn’t as good.

When the Range Rover Velar S/SE/HSE is put in reverse, both rearview mirrors tilt from their original position. This gives the driver a better view of the curb during parallel parking maneuvers. Shifting out of reverse puts the mirrors into their original positions. The Allroad’s mirrors don’t automatically adjust for backing.

The Range Rover Velar’s optional Park Assist can parallel park or back into a parking spot by itself, with the driver only controlling speed with the brake pedal. The Allroad doesn’t offer an automated parking system.
