Test mules are currently in the final stages of development, with UK sales of the 2014-model-year Discovery tipped to get under way later this year.
The light nip and tuck to the Discovery’s styling includes the ditching of its current fairy-light-style headlights in favour of a solid LED graphic inspired by the look of the new Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models. A revised front grille can also be seen on this test car, as can subtly revised foglights, new door mirrors and new light graphics at the rear.
The current engine line-up in the UK is tipped to be retained, with small performance and economy improvements likely. Outside of the UK, the normally aspirated 5.0-litre V8 petrol engine is to be dropped in favour of Jaguar Land Rover’s new supercharged 3.0-litre V6.
The facelifted model was recently spotted testing alongside other Land Rover models.
