2021 Range Rover Velar vs Porsche Macan: Power & Performance

Whether you're commuting to work, running errands around town, or driving towards your next vacation destination, you'll want to be seated behind the wheel of a powerful SUV. Luckily, the Range Rover Velar and Porsche Macan both come standard with impressive 2.0L engines that make them stand out.

Additionally, the 2021 Range Rover Velar pairs its powertrain with an 8-speed Automatic Transmission that ensures you have a smooth driving experience. The 2021 Porsche Macan, in comparison, has a standard 7-speed automatic transmission.


Range Rover Velar vs Porsche Macan: Off-Road Capabilities

If your adventures ever take you off-road, you'll need your SUV to be well-equipped to handle difficult terrain. Thanks to their selection of off-road features, the Range Rover Velar and Porsche Macan are equipped to help you tackle your next journey with confidence.

For example, the 2021 Range Rover Velar offers the following features:

  • Available Terrain Response® 2: This system offers six driving modes and automatically selects the one best-suited for your current driving conditions.
  • Available All-Terrain Progress Control: With this system, you can set and maintain a steady speed as you drive through mud, dirt, snow, and other difficult terrain.
  • Standard torque-on-demand All-Wheel Drive: While this feature is useful for regular driving, it's incredibly helpful for off-road adventures.

The 2021 Porsche Macan, in comparison, offers little support when traveling off the beaten path. This SUV has an off-road button and comes standard with all-wheel drive but shows an aversion to deep water or rugged landscapes.


2021 Range Rover Velar vs Porsche Macan: Interior Amenities

No matter where the road takes you, it's important that you and your passengers are comfortable when seated in your luxury SUV. With their wide selection of interior amenities, the Range Rover Velar and Porsche Macan help to ensure you and your passengers enjoy the journey.

The Range Rover Velar, for example, comes standard with Ebony perforated grained leather seats with Ebony interior and 14-way driver memory front seats. You and your front passenger can configure your seats to match your preferences. Unfortunately, the 2021 Porsche Macan only offers standard 8-way power front seats, so you may be less comfortable.


Range Rover Velar vs Porsche Macan: Technology Features

During long drives, you and your passengers will want access to high-tech features that can keep you entertained. Luckily, the Range Rover Velar and Porsche Macan offer advanced infotainment systems that are compatible with a variety of features.

For example, the 2021 Range Rover Velar comes standard with Pivi Pro, which includes the following features:

  • Apple CarPlay®
  • Android Auto™
  • Bluetooth®

Thanks to these systems, you can connect your smartphone to your in-car display and access your favorite apps, maps, music, and more.

The 2021 Porsche Macan also includes a standard infotainment system that's compatible with Apple CarPlay®, but you'll be less connected on the road.


2021 Range Rover Velar vs Porsche Macan: Audio Systems

If you like listening to music, audiobooks, or podcasts as you drive, you'll need a high-tech audio system that surrounds you in sound. Both the Range Rover Velar and Porsche Macan offer impressive standard audio systems that make them stand out.

The 2021 Range Rover Velar offers a standard Meridian™ Sound system, which includes 12 speakers and a dual-channel subwoofer. Additionally, this luxury SUV includes Meridian Digital Signal Processing, Meridian Cabin Correction, and Meridian Digital Dither Shaping. In comparison, the Porsche Macan comes standard with a Sound Package Plus, which includes 10 speakers.


Range Rover Velar vs Porsche Macan: Safety Systems

For example, the 2021 Range Rover Velar comes standard with a safety suite that includes:

  • Emergency Brake Assist

  • Driver Condition Monitor
  • Traffic Sign Recognition and Adaptive Speed Limiter

These systems all work to keep you and your passengers safe as you drive. Additionally, the standard Front and Rear Parking Aid and 3D Surround Camera make it easier and safer to park your SUV.

In comparison, the 2021 Porsche Macan comes standard with ParkAssist (front and rear) with reversing camera as well as Lane Departure Warning and Porsche Hill Control, so you won't have as many safety systems to protect you.
