Land Rover has revealed a series of updates for the MY2024 Range Rover Velar SUV, with the lineup gaining a handful of styling tweaks, tech upgrades and a larger battery for the plug-in hybrid variant.

On the styling front there’s no major changes, other than the familiar fascia has gained a new grille design, new Pixel LED headlights, a lower rear bumper and some dark accents around the bodywork.

Underneath, Land Rover is sticking with its powertrain lineup, although the P400e plug-in hybrid has gained a larger 19.2kWh lithium-ion battery that increases the electric range 17 per cent up to 69km.

The entry-level powertrain remains the P250’s 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol four-cylinder kicking out 184kW/365Nm, while stepping up to the D300 adds a 3.0-litre six-cylinder turbo-diesel producing 221kW/650Nm. Acceleration claims across 0-100km/h are 7.5 seconds and 6.5 seconds, respectively.

The P400 retains its 3.0-litre turbo-petrol inline-six producing 294kW/550Nm, offering a claimed 0-100km/h time of 5.5 seconds, while the P400e’s 2.0-litre four-cylinder hybrid powertrain remains unchanged at 297kW/640Nm. It covers 0-100km/h in 5.4 seconds.

All variants throw power to all fours via an eight-speed automatic transmission, while all six-cylinder variants pick up air suspension with adaptive dampers and Land Rover’s clever Terrain Response system.

Inside, Land Rover is offering a completely leather-free upholstery option with polyurethane and wool highlights, while four new leather colourway options remain on the table, though the major highlight is the updated 11.4-inch curved infotainment display that floats atop the dashboard. The system is powered by JLR’s Pivi Pro7 system that now offers over-the-air software updates.
