Land Rover has released the first pictures of its new Discovery model ahead of the vehicle's grand unveiling at this year's Frankfurt Motor Show, reports autoexpress.co.uk.
Car reviewers are backing the facelifted Land Rover Discovery 4 to become a popular option in the luxury SUV category when UK order books open in November.
The seven-seat vehicle has been given a new front end, where the 'Land Rover' lettering that once appeared on the bonnet has been replaced with 'Discovery'. Other changes come in the form of a fresh bumper, new headlamps and revised LED lights.
Land Rover's new vehicle also features two new alloy wheel designs, while buyers will be able to add gloss black details and unique 20-inch rims by snapping up the £1,900 Black Design pack.
The new Discovery returns a very respectable 35.3mpg for a car weighing 2.5 tonnes - a figure that could be confirmed through the use of a car tracker - while the 3.0-litre diesel engine produces 213g/km in CO2 emissions. The power of the previous model has been carried over, with this remaining at 253bhp with 600Nm of torque.
All models come equipped with a ZF automatic gearbox, with no manual option available.
Although a rough list of prices is yet to be released, carbuyer.co.uk says details are likely to be announced when the vehicle is revealed at next week's motor show.
