I agree. But I will say this... Velar is the best looking Range Rover I've ever seen, and the only one I would consider buying if F-Pace did not exist. I think the Velar will be a huge seller for Range Rover fans and will totally kill the Evoque. Once Velar hits the showrooms, Evoque is dead.I like it. Mostly the tech and that rear looks great with Range Rover styling. Still love my F-Pace for what it is though. A bit more to my sporty styling.
Agreed, mine comes out at a little more than 15k than what I paid for the F-pace. But if I am able to get a raise in the next couple of years the Velar will definitely be on my radar. I also think the air suspension will help a lot when driving in dynamic mode (or whatever LR calls their sport mode). Now if I could only remove the two sets of rear fog lights that would complete the car for me.I'm with Anenoso, if this was out back when I looked at the F-Pace I would have given it a good long look and test drive, but I think I would have still ended up with the F-Pace. My main gripe is that I doubt it's going to handle or scoot along like the F-Pace, it will be close, but its carrying more weight so that will be a handicap in the corners, but it would be interesting to see what dropping it a little bit with the air suspension might do in the twisties. And I would have been pushed due to that interior, it is a class above the F-Paces in the materials and such, but it should be due to the show stopper for me. The car in the video I did price out yesterday on the LR site and it tops out fully loaded with the stuff I would like at $100k with that matte finish or $31k more than I paid for my F-Pace FE. I just don't see $31k in value added capability and finishes that would warrant spending that much more.
