The Discovery may be getting a little long in the tooth now but Land Rover believes there's still plenty of life left in the current series and has treated it to a nip and tuck, and some new gizmos, to see it through 2014 and beyond.
To emphasise the vehicle's "established identity", the 'Land Rover' lettering on the bonnet has been replaced by 'Discovery' lettering.
The redesigned front end makes no radical shifts, but the new bumper, grille and headlight design does give it a notably fresh appearance, as do the new alloy wheel designs. Those seeking further distinction can opt for a new 'Black Design Pack' that includes revised detailing and 20-inch black alloy wheels.
Another new high-end option is the 825W Meridian Surround sound system with 17 speakers and Land Rover will also offer a lower-end 380W, 8-speaker version for those that want to save money for some of the other new features on the options list.
These include driver assistance systems like Reverse Traffic Detection, T-Junction Cameras, Wade Sensing, Blind Spot Monitoring and Closing Vehicle Sensing.
On the engine front, the 2014 Discovery retains the familiar 3-litre V6 turbodiesel - rated at 188kW and 600Nm and mated to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.
While outputs remain the same, engineers have managed to reduce CO2 emissions from 230g/km to 213g/km, on the back of combined cycle fuel consumption improved to 8.0 l/100km.
