For enhanced safety, the front and rear seat shoulder belts of the Land Rover Range Rover Velar have pretensioners to tighten the seatbelts and eliminate dangerous slack in the event of a collision and force limiters to limit the pressure the belts will exert on the passengers. The Buick Envision doesn’t offer pretensioners for the rear seat belts.

To provide maximum traction and stability on all roads, All-Wheel Drive is standard on the Range Rover Velar. But it costs extra on the Envision.

The Range Rover Velar’s 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 Envision doesn’t offer a driver alert monitor.

Both the Range Rover Velar and the Envision have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights, rearview cameras and available around view monitors.

Tires and Wheels

For better traction, the Range Rover Velar has larger standard tires than the Envision (255/50R20 vs. 225/60R18). The Range Rover Velar’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the Envision (265/45R21 vs. 235/50R19).

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 Envision Premium’s 50 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Range Rover Velar offers optional 21-inch wheels. The Envision’s largest wheels are only 19-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 Envision, it requires you to depend on a temporary spare, which limits mileage and speed before replacement.

Suspension and Handling

The Range Rover Velar offers an optional continuously variable suspension system. Using sensors on steering angle, speed and other driver inputs, the shocks soften to improve ride, or stiffen when appropriate to aid handling on tricky roads or off-road. The Envision’s suspension doesn’t offer adjustable shock absorbers.

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 Envision doesn’t offer a load leveling suspension.

The Range Rover Velar has vehicle speed sensitive variable-assist power steering, for low-effort parking, better control at highway speeds and during hard cornering, and a better feel of the road. The Envision doesn’t offer variable-assist power steering.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Range Rover Velar’s wheelbase is 4.8 inches longer than on the Envision (113.1 inches vs. 108.3 inches).

For better handling and stability, the average track (width between the wheels) on the Range Rover Velar is 2.7 inches wider in the front and 3.3 inches wider in the rear than the track on the Envision.

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

The Range Rover Velar R-Dynamic executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 1.3 seconds quicker than the Envision Premium (26.2 seconds @ .7 average G’s vs. 27.5 seconds @ .63 average G’s).

The Range Rover Velar has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat up than the Envision with its rear seat up (34.4 vs. 26.9 cubic feet). The Range Rover Velar has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat folded than the Envision with its rear seat folded (70.1 vs. 57.3 cubic feet).

A standard locking glovebox (which can’t be accessed with the valet key) keeps your small valuables safer in the Range Rover Velar. The Envision doesn’t offer locking storage for small valuables.

The Range Rover Velar’s standard towing capacity is much higher than the Envision’s (5291 vs. 1500 pounds). Maximum trailer towing in the Buick Envision is only 1500 pounds. The Range Rover Velar offers up to a 5511 lbs. towing capacity.

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

Unlike the driver-only memory system in the Envision Essence/Premium, 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’s front and rear power windows all open or close with one touch of the switches, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths, or when talking with someone outside of the car. The Envision’s passenger windows don’t close automatically.

The Range Rover Velar’s rain-sensitive wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically based on the amount of rainfall on the windshield. This allows the driver to concentrate on driving without constantly adjusting the wipers. The Envision’s standard manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted.

Heated windshield washer nozzles are optional on the Range Rover Velar to prevent washer fluid and nozzles from freezing and help continue to keep the windshield clear in sub-freezing temperatures. The Envision doesn’t offer heated windshield washer nozzles.

In poor weather, headlights can lose their effectiveness as grime builds up on their lenses. This can reduce visibility without the driver realizing. The Range Rover Velar offers available headlight washers to keep headlight output high. The Envision doesn’t offer headlight washers.

The Range Rover Velar HSE/SVAutobiography has standard massaging front seats in order to maximize comfort and eliminate fatigue on long trips. Massaging seats aren’t available in the Envision.

The Range Rover Velar will cost the buyer less in the long run because of its superior resale value. The IntelliChoice estimates that the Range Rover Velar will retain 45.5% to 45.64% of its original price after five years, while the Envision only retains 39.59% to 40.17%.
