2023 Range Rover Velar Facelift Exterior Changes

The changes to the exterior of the Velar facelift are minor. Up front, the Velar facelift gets updated pixel LED headlights that are slimmer and incorporate a redesigned daytime running lamp (DRL). The 2023 Velar also features a new grille with slim cylindrical elements. Around the side, the Velar continues to offer an unbroken waistline and flush-fitting door handles. At the rear, the Velar facelift gets updated LED tail lights, a lower bumper and a couple of dark accents.

2023 Range Rover Velar Interior

On the inside, the biggest change is the new 11.4-inch curved Pivi Pro infotainment system. The new touchscreen replaces the old twin screen setup and leaves the dashboard with a minimalist look. The curved screen cuts unnecessary reflections and offers wireless functionality for both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Furthermore, the new Velar facelift offers improved active noise cancellation, a flowing centre console with wooden inserts and a redesigned steering wheel.

2023 Range Rover Velar Powertrain Options

The Velar facelift continues to offer a range of Ingenium petrol and diesel engine options with mild-hybrid support. In India, Land Rover offer the Velar with a 2.0L turbo petrol and a 2.0L turbo diesel engine and we expect the brand to continue with the same powertrain options. The updated model also brings a new P400e plug-in-hybrid model but that is unlikely to hit our shores. The plug-in-hybrid model uses a 2.0L turbo petrol engine and a larger 19.2kWh battery pack to offer an all-electric driving range of 64km.

2023 Range Rover Velar India Launch And Rivals

Land Rover are likely to launch the Velar facelift in India around mid-2023. It will go up against the likes of the BMW X4, Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe and Audi Q5. However, since the Velar comes to our shores via the CBU route, it is priced considerably higher than its arch rivals. For instance, the Mercedes Benz GLC Coupe prices start from Rs. 72.50 lakh whereas the Velar prices start from Rs. 89.41 lakh ex-showroom.
