Performance

The 2014 Discovery’s handling is unchanged when compared with the previous model. Ride experience has improved due to new technologies that include Blind Spot Monitoring and Closing Vehicle Sensing.

Exterior

The Discovery features geometrical shapes with a large front grill, large headlights and discreet vents hidden near the bumper.

The side of the SUV lack any kind of curves or lines while the rear has maintained its simplicity. At the same time, the car distance from the ground has been raised for a more aggressive off-road look and better navigation through high water.

Interior

The Discovery comes with an 8 speaker system with a total RMS power of 380 watts. An upgrade option is available that takes the system to a total of 825 watts. No other major interior changes have been planned.

While the interior and over-all performance have remained untouched, the 2014 Discovery features fuel efficient engine options but with enough power to make the it a viable choice for off-road drives.
