As shown by a development car seen testing with an undisguised interior, the Range Rover will get a larger, dual-touchscreen area in its centre console - a design clearly inspired by the Velar’s system.
The Velar has two configurable 10.0in touchscreens for its Touch Pro Duo infotainment system, reducing switchgear to an absolute minimum. The second screen is below the main infotainment screen, ahead of the gear selector, and controls systems including the air-conditioning and Terrain Response.
This tech-focused design philosophy will be rolled out in the updated Range Rover, although it’s not yet clear if the screen dimensions will remain the same. Given the Range Rover’s higher price point, it could get slightly larger units.
As in the Velar, the touchscreens expand around the controls for the Range Rover's climate control, removing several buttons from the dashboard.
Aided by the latest semi-autonomous driving technology, the added infotainment tech from the Velar, the Range Rover will remain the most advanced Land Rover model - at least until the next-generation Defender arrives.
The spotted test car has a fully camouflaged exterior, showing that design tweaks could be applied. The heavy covering on the Range Rover's headlights suggest that they will get new internals - likely the newer technology used on the Velar.
The current Range Rover was only updated late last year when it gained a new supercharged V6 engine. For this reason, no changes to the engine range are expected with this update.
