2024 Land Rover Range Rover Velar Changes
The Land Rover Range Rover Velar’s design dates back to 2018 but it still looks fresh and modern, even next to the recently redesigned Range Rover and Range Rover Sport. That might be why, even after five years, the 2024 Velar is only getting a slight facelift, powertrain updates, and a curved interior display with the latest infotainment system, like its more expensive siblings. Also to keep with the trends, there are new leather colors and a wool blend leather-free cabin option.
Choosing Your 2024 Land Rover Range Rover Velar
The 2024 Land Rover Range Rover Velar is available in three trim levels, the S, Dynamic SE, and Dynamic HSE with designations that include its P250 or P400 powertrain. Base prices range from $62,775 to $79,675.
2024 Land Rover Range Rover Velar Engine Options
The 2024 Land Rover Range Rover Velar is offered with two different engines as designated by the P250 and P400 badging. The P250 is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 247 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque across the 1,300-4,500 RPM range. The P400 is Land Rover’s turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine with a mild-hybrid powertrain - a configuration that is becoming common at this price point. It puts out 395 horsepower and a plateau of 406 pound-feet of torque from 2,000-5,000 RPM.
The smaller engine is standard on the S and Dynamic SE while the more powerful engine is available on the Dynamic SE and standard on the Dynamic HSE.
Both engines are hooked up to an eight-speed automatic transmission that distributes power through an all-wheel-drive system with different terrain modes. A low-range gearbox is not offered.
2024 Land Rover Range Rover Velar Fuel Economy
The Range Rover Velar with the P250 powertrain returns EPA estimates of 22 miles per gallon city, 26 MPG highway, and 23 combined whereas the P400 manages 19, 25, and 21 MPG combined.
2024 Land Rover Range Rover Velar Towing Capacity
The Range Rover Velar is rated for towing up to 5,500 pounds with the P400 engine and 5,300 pounds with the P250. The available air suspension can lower and raise the rear of the Velar to help with hooking up to a trailer and keep the body level when heading down the road.
2024 Land Rover Range Rover Velar Dimensions & Cargo Capacity
The Range Rover Velar is a few inches longer than a BMW X3 or Mercedes-Benz GLC crossover and despite its sloping rear roofline, the rear seat is sufficiently roomy with 37.2 inches of rear legroom and 38 inches of headroom.
The cargo area is equally impressive for the styling-focused Velar with 34.4 cubic feet behind the second row and 70.1 cubic feet with the seat backs folded.
For those curious about off-road numbers, the Velar’s air suspension can raise the body for 9.9 inches of ground clearance and 27.5/27-degree approach and departure angles.
2024 Land Rover Range Rover Velar Safety
The 2024 Range Rover Velar is well equipped right out of the box with automatic emergency braking, blind-spot detection, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, rear cross-traffic alert, front and rear parking sensors, automatic wipers, and a driver-condition monitor.
For those desiring the impressive 3D-view surround-view camera system, it is paired with a wade-sensing feature. The Velar is capable of 22.83 inches - likely enough for making your way home during the next urban flash flood but not quite as adventure-ready as the Range Rover Sport or Range Rover.
2024 Land Rover Range Rover Velar Technology
All trims feature an 11-speaker 400-watt sound system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, SiriusXM, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. An 11.4-inch curved touchscreen sits proud of the instrument panel and operates with Land Rover’s latest infotainment system which incorporates over-the-air upgrade capability. A 16-speaker, 750-watt Meridian sound system with additional sound processing capability is available for $600.

The starting trim of the Velar brings more than just its dynamic looks and roomy interior. It also presents typical Land Rover off-road technology such as low-traction launch, all-terrain progress control, and hill descent control but in a very stylish package with new LED headlights with signature lighting, updated tail lights with animated turn signals, a revised grille, 19-inch wheels, a panoramic sunroof, flush door handles, power-folding heated mirrors with auto-dimming for the driver, and a power tailgate.
Inside, the front seats are heated and offer eight-way power adjustability and the driver’s seat additionally features position memory. A 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, a heated steering wheel with paddle shifters and a power-adjustable steering column are also among its notable standard features. A textile interior is a no-cost option instead of the standard perforated leather.
There are several option packages offered and most are available through the entire Velar trim range. A Black Styling Pack is just $750 and adds gloss black trim on the hood, grille, front bumper, side vents, and for the front and rear Range Rover script.
The Dynamic Handling Pack is $2,275 and adds red brake calipers as well as functional features such as air suspension, adaptable dampers, and additional driving modes. The Cold Climate Package is $1,175 and includes a heated windshield, headlight washing nozzles, ventilated front seats (with heating), and heated rear seats. The $1,530 Comfort Pack adds configurable ambient lighting, four-zone climate control, air purification (new for 2024), and a cooled glovebox. There are a few stand-alone options as well, such as a $12,000 paint job, heated and cooled seats ($300), and a full-size spare tire ($550).

It is limited to three colors and offers the same packages as the Dynamic SE trim with a lesser price for the Dynamic Handling Package ($775) and the Cold Climate Pack ($920).
The Range Rover Velar is all about style so we feel that the Dynamic SE trim is worth the price premium.
