2021 F-Pace vs. Range Rover Velar
When shopping for a luxury SUV, there are many options on the market. But when you are serious about your vehicles and want more than just a pretty face on four wheels, the choices get narrowed down very quickly. The two selections that always seem to end up in a head-to-head showdown are the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace and the Ranger Rover Velar. And in any driver’s eyes, this is a very fair and worthy competition between two of the highest quality SUVs in the luxury marketplace. It comes down to which features or functions best meet your needs.
A Look at Design
The profile of the 2021 F-Pace is the perfect perspective to appreciate the smooth, streamline design of this SUV. While providing ample space and comfort inside, it remains very aerodynamic with a clean exterior line. From the seamless hood, the air slips over the spacious cabin and off the very athletic-looking rear hatch to add downforce to the already exceptional handling. The Range Rover Levar also offers a very sleek and sporty shape for its size and capacity. The primary difference in these two luxury SUVs’ outward appearance is the retractable door handles for a slightly more streamlined appearance.
The Technology Included
The Jaguar F-Pace provides all of the technology and connectivity drivers need in a simple and straightforward manner. The 11.4-inch touchscreen in the center of the dash is easy to view and reach. The large instrument panel provides navigation without the need to look away from the roadway. And the heads-up display goes even further to reduce driver distraction and any need to look away from the vehicle’s front. The addition of wireless charging and cabin air ionizers are also nice upgrades. The Velar takes a slightly different approach to deliver its technology. The center dash is home to two smaller touch screens for the infotainment system. And the gauge cluster is more a traditional display than that of the F-Pace. But both meet and exceed the expectations of most drivers.
The Performance Numbers
The F-Pace delivers 246 horsepower to go from 0-60 in a respectable 6.9 seconds. And for those headed to a safe track environment, the top end is around 135mph. In comparison, the Velar wins the horsepower battle by less than a nose with 247. But it comes in second in the 0 to 60 challenge at 7.4 seconds. When considering fuel economy, the Jag delivers 22 mpg in the city and 27 on the highway for a combined 24mpg. The Range Rover can match the 27 mpg on the highway but gives up one mile per gallon in the city to deliver only 21.
