Both SUVs get updated features and tech which mirrors the Range Rover Velar.

The refreshed Range Rover line-up will launch in India on June 28, 2018. The company began accepting bookings for the updated Range Rover and Range Rover Sport SUVs back in April, this year.

The Range Rover line-up in India will continue to be sold in two wheelbase options. The updated Range Rover now gets similar front styling to the Velar. It gets new Pixel-laser LED headlamps that inset into the gloss black fringes of the new-look grille, which is designed in a new Atlas mesh pattern. The front and rear bumper also get a new design, along with new tail-lamp inserts.

On the inside, the refreshed SUVs get a cabin which is, once again, similar to the Range Rover Velar. The highlight of the cabin is the new Touch Pro Duo infotainment system replete with two 10.0-inch touchscreens on the centre console, one of which can be adjusted for a better viewing angle.

The top-spec Range Rovers will come with restyled front seats coupled with heated armrests, up to 17 connecting points for charging and multimedia, a deployable centre console at the rear, a hot stone seat massage function, gesture-controlled sun blinds, a cabin air purifier, 4G Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity for up to eight devices and adaptive cruise control with the queue assist function.

Engine options for both SUVs are likely to include the 255hp, 3.0-litre V6 diesel motor and goes up to the 517hp, 5.0-litre supercharged V8 petrol engine.

The refreshed Range Rover line-up will take on the likes of multiple luxury SUVs starting from the Audi Q7 and the Mercedes GLS, going up to the recently launched Lexus LX SUV range.
