Land Rover has now started accepting bookings for its Range Rover Velar facelift in India. This means that the prices of the new Velar could be announced in the coming weeks, while deliveries are slated to begin in September 2023. The SUV will go on sale only in the Dynamic HSE avatar with two drivetrain options - a 2.0-litre petrol as well as a 2.0-litre diesel unit. The all-wheel-drive system is available as standard here, with a water-wading depth of 580mm. Additionally, the Velar also brings with it an electronic air suspension system with Automatic Access Height, allowing you to get in and out of the car with ease and sophistication.  

Introduced in the Indian market in 2018, the Range Rover Velar is underpinned by the same modular Lightweight Aluminum Architecture found on the Jaguar F-Pace. The Velar is the fourth member of the Range Rover series and slots in between the Evoque and the Sport.
