Wheels for the SVR are horrendous . Will have to explore other options when mine comes , I going to do my cods on carbon though. Laughing

New seats look nice, and cooling is an option now which is nice.


Will go spec mine this week. 2017 Svr

Just had a look myself, some nice changes indeed, really liking the new rear end, Nice to see body coloured side sills are now standard on the Dynamic. wheels dont seem the best unless you have an extra couple of grand. new front end looks great, gives it a more sporty look. you where correct RRSman about the price increase even all the options have increased in price. i really do like it but only in Dynamic plus models. Thank god the changes are not enough to make me regret buying a MY17. but the healthy £8,500 discount i got is helping in this matter. but the face lift is something i may well go for in a couple of years. MY17 HSE Dynamic

Shame about the wheels, and losing the blue calipers. I don't like the new seat design. Nor the exhausts. Bonnet is nice, but not the CF. I like the new front bumper.

Phil, exactly the same comments from me regarding the SVR. Very disappointed with the new wheels.

Folks, it may be my blindness, stupidity or both, but....I can’t see anything about pricing?

The only reason I like the bonnet is that it reminds me of this:

The bonnet for me is a plus as from the looks of it they are actually functioning vents, better than the tacky false ones that were standard on the sport and svr. Either way mine is ordered and spcec'd just waiting for the delivery date now, had my deposit on this since april Big Cry Current

Oh well - just had a good play around and everything I said did happen bar the renaming of the cars which I guess will happen at a later date (R Dynamic rather than Autobiography etc Smile

New Lights
New leather style and design (from the Velar)
New Dual Screen Infotainment from the Velar
New Touch Control Steering wheel (from the Velar)
New headlamps including laser and led options
New Rear Lights
New Wheel Designs (which are frankly Censored !)
New Front and Rear Bumpers
No cost options like Santorini Black Paint are now chargeable!

It's a pretty substantial update IMHO and betters an already very good car. Is it enough to get me out of my FE Velar - well it depends on how much discount I can pick up on one of these and I am now seriously tempted on an SVR too!

The PHEV does look good but I don't think I trust JLR tech to take the plunge on one of the first cars with such new tech! 2017 Range Rover Velar First Edition - Corris Grey. Delivered 28/07/2017

Just watched the In control duo video and the screen does not tilt like the Velar - that is going to be a disaster as with a pan roof the sun glare is immense so getting a tilt is pretty much a must - big design error IMHO if this is the case!! 2017 Range Rover Velar First Edition - Corris Grey.
