Land Rover Discovery launches new design

Land Rover has moved to reveal the details of its new 2014 Discovery model, with the vehicle featuring a new look and improved driver comfort.

It is hoped that the new model will see the Discovery's appeal stretched even further, building on its existing popularity.

The new Discovery has undergone something of a face lift, with a new front grille, front bumper and headlamp design. Furthermore, the vehicle has implemented new daytime running lights with an LED signature, as well as new alloy wheels designs.

Fans of the vehicle's previous incarnations will notice the the emblazoned 'Land Rover' badging on the bonnet has been replaced by the word 'Discovery' to increase recognition of the well-loved brand, whilst improving its existing identity.

In addition to all of the aesthetic and identity changes, the fuel efficiency of the vehicle has also been improved.

The 2014 Discovery is set to underline Land Rover's commitment to sustainability, with CO2 emissions seeing a reduction from 230g/km to 213g/km. Fuel consumption has also seen an improvement to 35.3 mpg.

John Edwards, Land Rover global brand director, said: "The hugely popular Discovery continues to move from strength to strength and the addition of improvements in fuel economy and emissions underpins our commitment to delivering power with sustainability.

"As one of the world’s most stylish, capable and versatile SUVs, the Discovery is the perfect vehicle for people who enjoy living an active lifestyle to the full,” he added.

Drivers will also be able to benefit from an improved ride, with the Discovery including a number of new safety and comfort features.

In addition to Land Rover's unique wade sensing technology, the vehicle will have blind spot monitoring, closing vehicle sensing, reverse traffic detection and t-junction cameras.

Drivers will be able to experience the road in the vehicle like never before, whether on- or off-road.
