Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Land Rover Range Rover Velar than in the Toyota Land Cruiser. The Toyota Land Cruiser will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Land Rover Range Rover Velar.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Land Rover Range Rover Velar as you will with the Toyota Land Cruiser, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). Clearly, the Land Rover Range Rover Velar is a better financial choice over the Toyota Land Cruiser, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Land Rover Range Rover Velar carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Dimensions
Since the Land Rover Range Rover Velar is much slimmer than the Toyota Land Cruiser, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Land Rover Range Rover Velar is slightly shorter than the Toyota Land Cruiser, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Land Rover Range Rover Velar has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Land Cruiser, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Land Rover Range Rover Velar has a little less horsepower than the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Land Rover Range Rover Velar doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Land Rover Range Rover Velar seats a lot fewer people than the Toyota Land Cruiser. The Land Rover Range Rover Velar has less cargo space than the Toyota Land Cruiser, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Land Rover Range Rover Velar than that of the Toyota Land Cruiser.
