For better traction, the Range Rover Velar has larger standard tires than the V90 Cross Country (255/50R20 vs. 235/50R19). The Range Rover Velar’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the V90 Cross Country (265/45R21 vs. 245/45R20).

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 V90 Cross Country’s optional 45 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Range Rover Velar offers optional 21-inch wheels. The V90 Cross Country’s largest wheels are only 20-inches.

The Range Rover Velar offers an optional full size spare tire so a flat doesn’t interrupt your trip. A full size spare isn’t available on the V90 Cross Country, it requires you to depend on a temporary spare, which limits mileage and speed before replacement.

Suspension and Handling

The Range Rover Velar has standard front and rear gas-charged shocks for better control over choppy roads. The V90 Cross Country’s suspension doesn’t offer gas-charged shocks.

The front and rear suspension of the Range Rover Velar uses coil springs for better ride, handling and control than the V90 Cross Country, which uses transverse leafs springs in the rear. Coil springs compress more progressively and offer more suspension travel for a smoother ride with less bottoming out.

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 V90 Cross Country doesn’t offer a load leveling suspension.

For greater off-road capability the Range Rover Velar has a greater minimum ground clearance than the V90 Cross Country (8.4 vs. 8.3 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 1.6 inches higher than on the V90 Cross Country (9.9 vs. 8.3 inches).

The Land Rover Range Rover Velar may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs up to about 350 pounds less than the Volvo V90 Cross Country.

The Range Rover Velar is 5.5 inches shorter than the V90 Cross Country, making the Range Rover Velar easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

For enhanced passenger comfort on long trips the Range Rover Velar’s rear seats recline. The V90 Cross Country’s rear seats don’t recline.

The Range Rover Velar has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat folded than the V90 Cross Country with its rear seat folded (70.1 vs. 53.9 cubic feet).

The engine in the Range Rover Velar is mounted longitudinally (North-South), instead of sideways, as in the V90 Cross Country. This makes it easier to service and maintain, because the accessory belts are in front.

Unlike the driver-only memory seat and mirrors in the V90 Cross Country, 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 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 V90 Cross Country doesn’t offer an easy entry system.
