- Discovery Landmark Edition marks three decades
- Discovery SUV with more features / design enhancements
- Special model set to land in SA third quarter of 2019
PRETORIA, Gauteng – The Land Rover Discovery SUV has been around now for 30 years so to celebrate the automaker – now linked with British car-builder Jaguar – has revealed a Discovery Landmark Edition.
The intention, Landy says, is to showcases everything that defines a Discovery with upgraded standard features and subtle design enhancement, all based on the existing Land Rover SE, that include the Dynamic Pack which adds a more purposeful front bumper design and black mesh grille and fender vents. Black nameplate scripting on the bonnet and tail door carry the same logo.
Other additions include a fixed skyroof, front foul-weather lights, ”signature” tail lights, privacy glass and 20” gloss-back wheel rims.
The cabin is available with a choice of three leather colours with contrast micro-piping. A brushed aluminium centre console and titanium mesh finishers also set it apart and the off-roader will make itself heard with a 380W Meridian sound system.
Nick Collins, Jaguar Land Rover’s production-line director , told The Corner in a media release: “The Discovery has set the standard for all-terrain adventure for 30 years. Whether tackling jungle, mountains or the school run, its delivered class-leading all-terrain capability and seven-seat versatility.
”The Landmark Edition is a fitting celebration of this family SUV.”
The Discovery Landmark Edition will be available in South Africa in the third quarter of 2019 with a 190kW/600Nm three-litre TD6 engine and an eight-speed auto transmission.
