Land Rover is readying a number of updates for its 2014 model year Discovery SUV

Land Rover's facelifted Discovery has been spotted testing in the Alps alongside the current model.

We already know the Land Rover Discovery 4 is in-line for a light nip and tuck for the 2014 model year, with the facelifted model going on sale in September.

Obvious changes on the car include a new front light cluster - possible echoing that of the new Range Rover's LED unit - and a larger, more prominent front grille. New indicator stalks and side mirrors can also be seen. 

Other revisions are expected to be minor, with new alloy wheel designs, trim level revisions, and economy and CO2 tweaks. 

Our Verdict

Land Rover Discovery

The Land Rover Discovery has an unbeatable combination of practicality, off-road ability and on-road manners

Come on JLR, stop pi55ing about with headlights and alloy wheels, we want a meaningful (>500kg) reduction in weight from what is otherwise a brilliant car.

It seems JLR are putting all their eggs in one basket and concentrating on the Range Rover line. The  new Range Rover Sport has just replaced the previous model which was based on the Disco 3/4, yet JLR are quite happy to facelift the current Disco for the 2nd time instead of replacing it with an all-new model which probably won't appear for a few more years. Couple that with constant undecisiveness about replacing the Defender, and a rather perculiar plan to replace the Freelander, you'd be forgiven for thinking that Land Rover (and Jaguar) is an unecessary distraction for JLR.

You think maybe Range Rovers were further along their product lifecycle than the Land Rovers, hence why they've been replaced first!?? THINK ABOUT IT!! RR L322 released 2001, L320 Sport 2005. Disco 4, 2009 (late), Freelander 2 2006 - to be replaced in 2015. It's nothing about neglect just JLR not, for blindingly obvious reasons such as those, developing every single car in their range at the same time!!

Oh dear, rant without looking at the bigger picture.

Disco 4, which is basically the same thing as Disco 3. Which if i can remember correctly has been around for 8 or so years

So Landrover are going to change the headlamps. When the RR Sport is all new just changing the headlights on the car it is based on seems a bit poor. But as the current ones are rather OTT maybe they are going to tone them down. Ok, probably not.

Actually (twinkly headlights aside) the current Discovery is a great car let down really just by its reliability. Sort that and who cares about weight etc.

The L320 (old RR Sport) was based on the Disco not the new one. The new RR Sport is based on the new RR. Reliability wise. The Disco has just came 3rd in a WhatCar survey due to its excellent reliability......http://www.whatcar.com/car-news/jd-power-survey-2013/large-suvs/265893

Why is that as soon as a JLR report pops up, all the neysayers have to put it down, I am so pleased that 99.9% of those that read these pages igore such blatent ignorance, someone comes in with facts and dates and gets blamed for having a rant.

LOL.. seems as though unles you adore anything German, your not welcome here, well, I loathe everything from BMW and mercedes has become more boring as the years pass, let alone Audi, who seem to make each car the same, but in differing sizes, and VW whose less than  exciting dynamics make it even more boring than Merc.

I like many brands, and have a liking for the JLR trio, but, to be honest, I find people opinions on here towards JLR rather weird, its like someone from a car forum like Merc, registers numerous profiles and slags everyone and everything off, I am awaiting that tossers arrival.
