The Land Rover Discovery Landmark Edition has been announced and it's coming to South Africa. Here's what you need to know.
To celebrate 30 years of Discovery, Land Rover has announced a special edition. Called the Discovery Landmark Edition, this newcomer boasts more standard features and some subtle design changes. Since the Discovery was first announced at the 1989 Frankfurt Motor Show, the big SUV has offered luxury and offroad capability in one sweet package.
Based on the Discovery SE, the Landmark Edition features the Dynamic Pack which has some visual tweaks such as new-look bumpers and grills. The vehicle also features a fixed panoramic roof, front fog lights and signature tail lights, while privacy glass and 20-inch Gloss Black wheels complete the modern and contemporary look. Inside, the cabin offers a choice of three premium Windsor leather colourways with contrast micropiping. A Satin Brushed Aluminium centre console and titanium mesh finishers also set it apart, with the 380W Meridian Sound System, helping to create a truly first-class travel experience.
Nick Collins, Vehicle Line Director, Jaguar Land Rover, said: “The Land Rover Discovery has set the standard for all-terrain adventure for 30 years. Whether tackling jungles, mountains or the school run, it has delivered at every turn with class-leading all-terrain capability and seven-seat versatility. The Landmark Edition is a fitting celebration of the ultimate family SUV.”
South African-spec Discovery Landmark Edition will feature a 190 kW / 600 Nm 3.0-litre TD6 engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. It'll retain the legendary 4x4 capability too and the vehicle features Terrain Response 2 as well as a class-leading wading depth of 900 mm and a 3 500kg towing capacity.
The new Land Rover Discovery Landmark Edition will be available in South Africa in the third quarter of 2019 with pricing to be announced closer to the time.
