Locally, the facelifted Velar line-up – on sale now – has been shrunk, with the base R-Dynamic S deleted from the range, while the R-Dynamic styling pack is now simply known as the Dynamic. goes
List prices have increased between $700 and $7250, while the entry price has risen to $9550.
A diesel option is back on the SE, replacing the limited D300 edition launched in 2022.
For model year 2024, the Velar features a minor exterior redesign inspired by the latest generation Range Rover Sport and full-size Range Rover.
As such, it’s a slight evolution of the design language introduced by the mid-size SUV six years ago, with changes including new-look, thinner headlights with available Pixel LED technology.
A redesigned lower rear bumper, brighter taillights with an updated lighting signature, and darker accents round out the Velar’s revised exterior.
Instead, the cabin is the main focus for the facelift model, with a streamlined look derived from Range Rover’s latest vehicles – and some electric vehicles, including the Tesla Model 3.
The most noticeable change is the addition of a larger, curved 11.4-inch infotainment screen, which launches Jaguar Land Rover’s latest generation of Pivi Pro7 software.
This single screen replaces the dual-screen setup found in the pre-facelift Velar, which includes a 10-inch central display and a 10-inch climate control unit.
In the simplified interior, all physical controls have been deleted from the center stack – apart from the gear shifter – with climate, seating and audio settings now always visible on the infotainment screen.
A ‘pre-drive’ panel will appear on start-up showing frequently used controls, such as heated seats or window defrosters.
As before, the Pivi Pro system will support over-the-air software updates, with Land Rover claiming that 80 percent of the vehicle’s electronic control units – including the chassis and powertrain – can be updated without visiting a dealer. can be done
For variants equipped with a 17-speaker Meridian surround sound audio system, the Range Rover Velar will feature Active Noise Cancellation, which is said to reduce noise by more than 4dB.
Land Rover has updated the Velar’s plug-in hybrid system, which is now available on the entry-level SE in addition to the HSE.
It includes a large 19.2kWh lithium-ion battery pack – up to 2.1kWh – for an NEDC-rated electric-only driving range of 69km, up to 18km.
Following in the footsteps of its bigger siblings, the Velar gets the range-topping Autobiography grade, complete with 22-inch alloy wheels, cabin air purification system and copper trim.
