2024 Range Rover Velar exterior
The exterior of the 2023 Range Rover Velar has been updated. It has a new front grille that adds a modern touch to its appearance. The addition of Pixel LED headlights prevents dazzling oncoming traffic by individually controlling LEDs in the headlights and controlling the throw. The rear lights have been updated as well. To maintain balance, the design incorporates a significant overhang at the back. Metallic Varesine Blue and Premium Metallic Zadar Grey are two new exterior colour options.

In addition, the manufacturer has added a wireless charging pad, four-zone temperature control, driver-seat memory settings, an air purifier, and an onboard Amazon Alexa assistant. The Velar also has an 11-speaker, 400-watt Meridian sound system, which provides an immersive audio experience. The driver and passengers are treated to enhanced comfort with 20-way powered front seats that include massage and heating/ventilation functions. A 360-degree camera system is installed on the vehicle to improve visibility and safety. Furthermore, it supports over-the-air software updates, ensuring that it is always up to date with the latest features and improvements. Metal pedals, active road noise cancellation technology for a quieter ride, multicoloured ambient lighting for added ambience, a fixed panoramic sunroof to bring the outdoors in, and powered rear seats for added convenience and flexibility are also notable interior additions.
