Land Rover has always been a brand less eager to change than most. But today's crossover and SUV market is far more competitive than it used to be, with a number of players vying for segment dominance.

The most obvious improvements are the slimmer headlights and generally more elegant sheetmetal. Interiors were also classed up and now boast 40/20/40 split-folding rear seats, more refined materials, and upgraded infotainment. Optional sustainable interior choices should please those especially concerned with our planet's fragility.
Headlining the updates is a new optional mild-hybrid four-cylinder powertrain. It uses a 48-volt electrical system and an underfloor battery designed to store energy regenerated during braking.
