For better traction, the Range Rover Velar’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the V90 (265/45R21 vs. 255/40R19).

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Range Rover Velar offers optional 21-inch wheels. The V90’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; it requires you to depend on a temporary spare, which limits mileage and speed before replacement.

The Range Rover Velar has standard front and rear gas-charged shocks for better control over choppy roads. The V90’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, 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 doesn’t offer a load leveling suspension.

For better handling and stability, the average track (width between the wheels) on the Range Rover Velar is 1 inch wider in the front and 1.6 inches wider in the rear than the track on the V90.

The Range Rover Velar’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (50% to 50%) than the V90’s (53.7% to 46.3%). This gives the Range Rover Velar more stable handling and braking.

For better maneuverability, the Range Rover Velar’s turning circle is .6 feet tighter than the V90’s (38.1 feet vs. 38.7 feet).

For greater off-road capability the Range Rover Velar has a 2.4 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the V90 (8.4 vs. 6 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 3.9 inches higher than on the V90 (9.9 vs. 6 inches).

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 doesn’t offer an easy entry system.

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 V90.
