SiriusXM® Satellite Radio Options For Land Rover

Land Rovers are great vehicles in their own right. The ride is smooth and comfortable. The parts are well-built and pretty reliable. However, when it comes to entertainment, you need SiriusXM® satellite radio. It’s something that will drastically improve your ride.

Do Land Rovers come with SiriusXM® built-in? Can you add it to your Land Rover? Read on to find out.

1. Does Land Rover Offer Satellite Radio On All Models?

Satellite radio doesn’t come readily available on all Land Rover and Range Rover models. Since SiriusXM® satellite radio is a popular feature in a car, you would think that Land Rover would put it in all of its models.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve got a Discovery, Velar, Evoque, or Defender. The truth is that Land Rover wants to encourage its customers to pay more money on a higher trim level, and adding SiriusXM® on only the higher trim levels is a way to do that. If you have a base trim Land Rover or Range Rover model, chances are it doesn’t come with satellite radio.

2. If My Land Rover Doesn’t Come With Satellite Radio, Can I Add SiriusXM® To It?

You absolutely can add SiriusXM® to your Land Rover if it doesn’t already have satellite radio built in. There are some aftermarket solutions designed to help you achieve this. Let’s go over the three most common aftermarket solutions:

  1. Stand-alone satellite radio: Mount it on the dash and then connect it to the vehicle’s electrical system and the FM modulator via two sets of wires
  2. AUX adapter kit with a satellite radio receiver: If you have an AUX input, you can mount a satellite receiver unit to your dash and then connect it to the car via the AUX input
  3. VAIS satellite radio adapter kit: A kit that converts your factory radio into a SiriusXM® radio

The only solution that doesn’t create any dash clutter is the VAIS satellite radio adapter kit. You can explore each option in more detail here.

3. Is There A Genuine OEM Satellite Radio Adapter Available From Land Rover?

Land Rover does not offer a genuine OEM satellite radio adapter. It’s because they want to encourage you to buy a more expensive trim level in the first place. If they offer an OEM satellite radio adapter kit, then there’s no reason not to buy a base model and then install the kit later on. Luckily, aftermarket solutions exist.
