2019 Range Rover Velar getting more equipment?

NoT sure if this is limited to Australia only, but motoring says the 2019 Range Rover Velar will be getting more equipment including Steering Assist and Lane Centering features as standard. There's also mentions of a 3.0-litre V-6 diesel engine that's good for 271 bhp and 625 Nm of torque. I don't care for the diesel, but the extra features may convince me to wait a bit before getting one.

With how expensive the Velar can get with additional options, I'm happy to see more drive assist tech becoming standard. There's actually two new engine options that will be coming with the changes. A D275 3.0-liter V6 turbo-diesel that produces 200kW/625Nm and a P340 3.0-liter supercharged V6 that's rated at 250kW/450Nm.

Is the second engine option just limited to Australia or will that be offered globally? A 3.0-liter supercharged V6 sounds very enticing and I don't mind paying a bit more when the Velar already comes with so much standard equipment.

Seeing as how they are both turbo diesels I have a feeling they may stay exclusive to the UK. It also looks like they have announced a reversing camera, parking sensors, a driver condition monitor and emergency braking as standard on all models as well.

With the increase in standard safety equipment, the Velar could become a segment leader so long as it doesn't also come with a price increase.
