As far as I'm aware, there are no changes to the sheetmetal of the car at all - lights are different, front bumper looks slightly different (vents etc.). Externally only minor changes; internally the adoption of the Velar-style dual screens, wheel buttons etc.

Seems clear in this picture from the Technical Manual that the new lights are the same size and shape:

I was told that the vehicle facelift has been specifically designed so it is VERY difficult/expensive for people to 'facelift' Gen 1 L405s. LR really weren't happy with what happened to the L322.

@ Trommel - having seen the back lights, I think you're right, but the way that they've been redesigned, they look a lot bulkier, even if it's no more than an optical illusion

Will the facelift and the PHEV be shown on Wednesday? I haven't seen any notification of such an event?

That autocar piece was very badly written. It even contradicts itself. They should just get rid of that author, he's useless.

Looks like the Velar interior - unsurprisingly.
