    The Range Rover Velar facelift gets Land Rover’s new pixel LED headlights with a revised daytime running lamps signature. Not much has been updated cosmetically in profile, but it now gets a refreshed rear bumper and redesigned tail-lights. 

    Inside, the Velar gets a new dashboard design that brings it in line with the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport. The highlight is the new 11.4-inch curved touchscreen running Land Rover’s Pivi Pro system with wireless Android Auto and Apple Carplay.
