The UK-bred SUV features improved fuel economy and reduced emissions
Land Rover announced upgrades to its 2014 Discovery: new look, badging, fuel stretching technology, audio systems, driver assistance, and comfort and safety features. The core attributes of the vehicle are retained in the 2014 models despite the newly added features.
The upgraded exterior includes changes in the grille, front bumper, headlights, and alloy wheels for aesthetic improvements. If you are paying close attention to the hood, this is the first time the ‘Discovery’ badge replaced ‘Land Rover’ while also having a ‘Discovery’ badge mounted on the tailgate. To make the vehicle more distinguished, there is the optional ‘Black Design Pack’ with revised detailing and 20” black alloy wheels available for the 2014 models.
The Discovery will continue using the 3.0 liter SDV6 capable of 256 PS and 600 Nm of torque enabling it to go from 0-100 km/h in 8.8 seconds. As for fuel consumption, the Discovery clocks in at 12.5 km/l and emits 213g/km of CO2.
Aside from the aesthetic upgrades and engine capabilities, the vehicle safety is supported by the Wade Sensing (unique to Land Rover), Blind Spot Monitoring, Closing Vehicle Sensing, Reverse Traffic Detection and T-junction Cameras.
Last but not least, Land Rover equips the Discovery with Meridian premium audio. The standard audio system features 8 speakers and 380 watts of power while the Meridian Surround system produces 825 watts with its 17 speakers.
With over 60 years in the 4x4 manufacturing, Land Rover continues to define its brand through the different models in its SUV line-up.
