The Velar refresh only included subtle external tweaks. New, thinner-pixel LED headlights with an upgraded daytime running lamp are found at the front of the Velar refresh (DRL). New, thin cylindrical grille pieces are included on the 2023 Velar as well.

The most noticeable upgrade to the cabin is the new 11.4-inch curved Pivi Pro infotainment system. The old dual-screen layout has been replaced by the new touchscreen, leaving the dashboard with a clean and uncluttered appearance.

Land Rover now sells the Velar in India with a choice between a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine and a 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel engine. It’s unlikely that we’ll see the P400e plug-in hybrid version that was included with the redesign. The plug-in hybrid has a bigger 19.2kWh battery pack and a 2.0L turbo petrol engine to provide up to 64km of all-electric range.

For comparison’s sake, the base price of a Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe is around Rs. 72.50 lakh, while the base price of a Velar is around Rs. 89.41 lakh (both prices are ex-showroom).
