British carmaker Jaguar Land Rover has launched the updated Range Rover, Range Rover Sport facelifts at a starting price of Rs 1.74 crore and Rs 99.48 lakh respectively (all prices, ex-showroom, India).

Land Rover unveiled the mid-life facelifted versions of both the models last year. The flagship Range Rover as well as the Q7-rival Range Rover Sport, both receive styling tweaks to the front bumper which bring them more in line with the Velar. The rear bumper design and the vent trims along the sides are new. While both the SUVs get matrix LED headlights as standard, buyers now get the option of stylish pixel-laser LEDs. The Range Rover is available in standard and long-wheelbase forms as well.

Both the models come equipped with the addition of the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system borrowed from the Range Rover Velar. It comes with a twin 10.10-inch setup which promises sharp graphics.

Other features include a leather steering wheel, ambient lighting, three-zone climate control, 360-degree surround camera (optional), aluminium tread plates with the Range Rover script on the higher trims, air cabin ionisation that cleanses and purifies the cabin air and adaptive cruise control with queue assist. The flagship Range Rover additionally gets heated and cooled front seats.

Both SUVs get four engine options; with each powered by either V6 or V8, petrol and diesel motors. The two petrol powertrains are the 340hp, V6 mill and the 525hp, V8 motor, while the diesel line-up consists of a 258hp unit and a 340hp engine.

Rohit Suri, president and managing director, Jaguar Land Rover India said, "Both these iconic SUVs carry forth the legacy of Land Rover by offering heightened levels of luxury, capability, technology and refinement. We are sure our Range Rover fans and discerning customers would be delighted with the last offerings."
