2014 Land Rover Discovery facelift revealed

Land Rover has unveiled the Discovery facelift ahead if its debut at next week’s Frankfurt Motor Show. Land Rover says the Discovery now has a distinctive new face and new ‘Discovery’ badging.

To be honest the changes are quite minor and not easy to spot. The front bumper is revised, along with grille and headlights which have different LED daytime running lights. There are also new alloys wheels and the “Land Rover” badging on the bonnet has been replaced with the “Discovery” lettering as seen on recent Range Rover models.

Also the number 4 is removed from the tailgate leaving just the word ‘Discovery’.

The 2014 Discovery will continue to use the 256bhp 3.0 SDV6 with 600Nm of torque linked to an eight speed ZF automatic transmission. CO2 emissions are reduced from 230g/km to 213g/km, and fuel consumption improved to 35.3mpg.

The all-new fifth generation Discovery has just started testing so it will be at least two years before the new model arrives.
