    We help our reader decide between buying a BMW X5 40i M Sport or Range Rover Velar 2.0 petrol.

    Q: I would like some help for my uncle who is trying to buy a new luxury car priced around Rs 70-90 lakh. We have shortlisted two cars – the BMW X5 40i M Sport and the Range Rover Velar 2.0 petrol. Priorities are comfort, performance, good road presence and a good resale value after a few years. Should he go with a used Mercedes or BMW flagship model instead?

    The Velar and X5 are very different cars. If you are looking at style and a bit of class, the Velar, with its gorgeous design and well-appointed interiors, will be the one that turns heads more. However, the X5 is overall a better car. It is more spacious and nicer to drive, thanks to a stronger engine range. The X5 has good road presence too but has a more conventional shape and is nowhere near as masterfully designed as the Velar.
