Space wise, the evoque is more in line with the xc40.Velar is a larger SUV than the XC60, the XC90 class
Q8 is in class X6 and GLE Coupe, Volvo has nothing to compare. XC60 is in class with Q5, as well as Evoque
Generally every Range Rover has a lot are problems with electronics
Q8 is a great choice, it's expensive but has a similar price as its competitors X6 and GLE Coupe
Hi sportsguy...Anyone here cross shop the Land Rover Evoque or Velar vs XC60 ? I like the XC60 a lot but feel like the Velar and Evoque are more stylish. I feel like Range Rover has more style but XC60 is smarter choice and likely a better value.
Like you I think the JLR products look good, BUT.... and it's a big BUT...
I had a Discovery 3 and it was a great car but decided to "downsize", worst thing I aver did.
I had 2 x Discovery Sports and both were rejected for poor build quality, I loved them both but they didn't love me at all. First one went after 8 months, second one went after 3 weeks... both with the exact same problem with a BIG rattle in the B-Pillar. Have a good look at how they wanted to fix this issue (see Tech Bulletins 1 through 8 - from UK Disco Sport Forum) and they will paint a very good picture on how they do things.
JLR treated me like crap for over 6 months during the first reject and didn't treat me much better for the second car until I took it in to the dealer and told him to "shove it", handed the keys over and told them to sort the reject out with JLR. Swapped over to XC60 and have never looked back.
I do also believe that there are many JLR owners who are very happy, BUT look at the JLR forums for an insight into their quality, DPF and customer support issues you may be very surprised. As mentioned I don't actually think there are any better looking SUV's out there.
JLR products you either love 'm or leave them very quickly. I may be considered a bit "one eyed", but I did stay with them from the Disco 3, I thought after all the money that Tata put into JLR they would be pretty good. There are also many reports of "financial issues" and the possibility that JLR could be sold of by Tata as they are loosing money hand over fist!
Hi .LMS.I had a similar experience to S5156.
I purchased an F-Pace (shares components with the Land Rover), and was so miserable with it that I traded it in for my XC60 after 6 months, taking a gigantic financial bath, but I am still glad I finally got rid of it. On the other hand, I had an F-Type, and it was very reliable.
Unlike S5156, I had a great relationship with my dealer, they tried and tried, but in the end they can't change the software in the car. My primary beef was with the infotainment system - it was so unreliable I would be angry every time I drove the car. I got all the updates as soon as available, but some things would get better, some things would change, some would be worse.
When I hear folks complain about the Volvo Infotainment system, I smile, because even with its faults, it's so far ahead of the JLR one.
XC60 is not as sexy, for sure, but still damn nice in my book.

I like the Evoque but I feel it is priced much higher than it should be. Its small size is in line with the XC40, X1, and Q3 but it is priced along with the larger sized XC60, X3, and Q5. There’s very little bang for your buck.Anyone here cross shop the Land Rover Evoque or Velar vs XC60 ? I like the XC60 a lot but feel like the Velar and Evoque are more stylish.
