Land Rover India has given the 2024 Range Rover a price cut of Rs. 640,000 (US$ 7,720) in India, with the SUV now priced at Rs. 8,790,000, ex-showroom.
Upon launch in July in 2023, the 2024 Velar was priced at Rs. 9.3 million and received a price hike towards the end of the year that took it up to Rs. 9,430,000.
Compared to the previous model, the 2024 Range Rover Velar gets a new lighting signature along with a pixel LED setup in the front and a new tail-light at the rear.
The biggest changes are on the inside, with the brand giving the Velar a new minimalist look by doing away with the physical touch buttons for the climate control and moving all controls to a new, 11.4-inch curved infotainment screen.
It comes loaded with features such as a 360-degree camera with an under-bonnet view, 20-way massage front seats, a power recline for the rear seats, an air purifier, wireless charging, a Meridian sound system, a powered tailgate, a panoramic sunroof and four-zone climate control.
The Range Rover Velar is available with a choice of a 2.0-litre petrol engine that produces 253 PS and 365 Nm, and a 2.0-litre diesel engine that's mated to a mild-hybrid system making a total of 207 PS and 430 Nm; both engines get all-wheel-drive and are mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox. The petrol Velar can go from 0-100 kph in 7.5 seconds while the diesel-powered Velar can do the same sprint in 8.3 seconds.
At this price point, the Range Rover Velar rivals the Mercedes-Benz GLE (Rs. 9,640,000), BMW X5 (Rs. 9.6 million), Porsche Macan (Rs. 8,806,000) and Jaguar F-Pace (Rs. 7,290,000).
