Comparison Review

The Land Rover Range Rover Velar offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Mercedes-Benz AMG GLC 43, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Land Rover Range Rover Velar and the Mercedes-Benz AMG GLC 43.

Convenience

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP).

If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Land Rover Range Rover Velar, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz AMG GLC 43.
