This is the new, mildly updated Range Rover Velar
The luxury SUV is sporting a new (ish) futuristic front end
The new Range Rover Velar has been given a slight makeover. The luxury SUV gets a new grille and sleeker centre console display, in a light facelift that prioritises aesthetics and tech over engineering upgrades.
In the refresh, the Velar loses the chicken wire-esque grille and gains a sharper more contemporary design. Coupled with super-slim LED headlights at the front, a lower rear bumper - an immediate improvement - rounds up the exterior changes.
Inside, the Velar now has a redesigned touchscreen display which appears to float on the dash rather than sit on its own small shelf collecting dust. The infotainment system now features Amazon Alexa built-in, so you can, for example, switch your home lights on from your car.
What’s more, the Land Rover team no longer needs to play catch-up with premium manufacturer rivals BMW, Audi and Merc, because it’s integrated over-the-air software updates. Welcome to 2023.
Other tech upgrades include Active Road Noise Cancellation for those opting for a panoramic roof, making what was already a pretty quiet cabin even quieter. And to stay onboard with its sustainability objectives, the new Range Rover Velar will have a vegan-friendly, non-leather upholstery and a cabin air purification system among the optional extras.
Priced from £54,045 on-the-road, the new Range Rover Velar is available to order now.
