Land Rover has enhanced its record-breaking Discovery Sport range with a new special edition.
The new Landmark Edition salutes Discovery Sport's success as the fastest-selling Land Rover of all time – coinciding with the brand's year-long 70th anniversary celebrations. Powered by Land Rover’s TD4 180PS diesel Ingenium engine, the Landmark edition offers customers the best of the Discovery Sport range with a unique colour and trim combination - with prices starting at £40,400.
The first model to be built on Land Rover’s 70th birthday on 30 April was a Discovery Sport, at Land Rover’s Halewood plant in Merseyside. This vehicle will be used to support a number of projects in 2018, starting with a community resilience project in Scotland which will be announced in June.
The Discovery Sport Landmark is available in three colours: Narvik Black, Corris Grey and Yulong White, all crowned with a Carpathian Grey contrast roof. It features a sporty and dynamic front bumper, with Graphite Atlas exterior accents and 19in Style 521 ‘Mantis’ wheels in Gloss Dark Grey. The interior features Ebony grained leather seats and an Ebony headliner, complemented by dark grey aluminium finishers around the centre stack, a panoramic roof, MeridianTM sound system and heated steering wheel.
Diesel and petrol engine refinement
As part of the continual enhancement of Land Rover vehicle lines, all Discovery Sport powertrains including petrols are now equipped with particulate filters to make them even cleaner. The efficient, close-coupled filters are neatly integrated into the after treatment system and trap soot as the exhaust gas passes through them. Under normal driving conditions, the trapped soot will be oxidised into CO2 and the filter regenerated whenever the driver lifts off the accelerator.
