- Distinctive exterior design features enhance fourth generation Land Rover Discovery
- World-renowned all-terrain capability and versatility retained

Whitley, UK, October 22 2015 - Land Rover continues to broaden the appeal of the Discovery with the launch of two new special editions – the Landmark and the Graphite*. New distinctive exterior design features to both editions enhance the design of the fourth generation Discovery, while unique interior touches to the Landmark bring more luxury and exclusivity.
These special editions give the Discovery even greater on-road presence than ever before. Available to order from the end of October, they will be seen on the Australian roads from April 2016 onwards.
"The appeal of the Land Rover Discovery has just got even greater. We have launched two new special editions – the Landmark and Graphite, which offer the customer greater on-road presence and enhanced comfort to complement the Discovery's existing versatility and capability attributes," says Finbar McFall, Jaguar Land Rover Product Marketing Director.
The Discovery Landmark builds on the generous specification of the SDV6 HSE derivative* with new interior and exterior features that offer the customer a more premium and unique look and feel to their Discovery.
The exterior upgrade sees the addition of full length roof rails in a bright finish that highlight the familiar stepped roof design of the Discovery. Distinctive black fender vents, grille and mirror caps complement silver bonnet and tailgate badges, alongside Landmark badging to the side and rear to further distinguish this model. 20-inch 5-split spoke alloy wheels complete the design.
The Landmark is available in a limited range of five body colours, including Zanzibar which has been exclusively reserved for the Landmark edition and is not available on any other Discovery. The other four available body colours are Waitomo Grey, Santorini Black, Yulong White and Indus Silver.
Enhancements to interior refinement come as standard inside the Landmark with the addition of Windsor Leather seats and the Extended Leather Pack throughout, furnishing the dashboard, door casings and fascia. The interior is purposefully limited to three colourways – Ebony, Almond and Tan. The latter is offered for the first time ever in a Discovery, with Tan Windsor Leather Seats complemented by Ebony door casings and fascia and a Grand Black Lacquer veneer trim finisher. In addition to the Landmark specific interior upgrades a centre console cooler box and cold climate pack including, heated steering wheel, heated front and rear seats have also been specified.
The Landmark also adds customer convenience and technology features that extend the HSE's already comprehensive specifications. The 825W Meridian surround sound audio system and DAB+ provides the clearest and most powerful system available in the Discovery range. The Vison Assist Pack includes Adaptive Xenon headlamps, Automatic High Beam Assist and the Surround Camera system including 5 cameras to provide exceptional vision in all directions.
The Discovery Graphite builds on the success of the Black Pack and introduces a modern and distinctive look to the model range with striking finishes. A grey Graphite finish to the fender vents and grille, which also sports a gloss black and lighter grey frame, blend with existing grey highlights appointed to the door handles and the Discovery badging to the bonnet and tailgate. Exclusive to the Graphite is the 19-inch 7-split spoke alloy wheel in a high gloss dark grey as standard. The customer can choose between a spectrum of nine body colours and three interior colourways*.
Available in the 3.0L TDV6 or 3.0L SDV6 SE the Graphite will stand out from the other models in the range. The 3.0L SDV6 SE also adds the centre console cooler box, keyless entry and HDD navigation to the standard specification.
The optional Land Rover InControl Apps* complements the Discovery's existing infotainment system to provide the ultimate in-car connectivity. It brings the convenience, familiarity and original look and feel of compatible smartphone apps into the owner's vehicle, which are displayed and controlled from the vehicle's touchscreen. The customer can find parking spaces, stream their favourite music or simply locate the nearest hotel for that invaluable pit-stop.
The acclaimed Terrain Response® and Hill Descent Control drive technologies ensure optimal and responsive driving across any terrain as standard. Add in the choice of the single-speed transfer box or twin-speed – the latter offering high and low range for the most demanding off-road conditions, and optional Wade Sensing™ technology to alert the driver to deep water, and the Discovery is equipped to tackle whatever path the customer decides to travel.
To support the Discovery's award-winning towing capacity of 3,500kg, Trailer Stability Assist is provided as standard and to help hitch a trailer to the tow bar, Tow Hitch Assist acts as an extra pair of eyes as the vehicle is maneuvered into position.
A full 7-seater with stadium seating and 2,600-litre stowage capacity, the Discovery can be reconfigured and equipped to fit seamlessly into the changing lifestyle of its owner. Its versatile interior with variable seating and a range of essential hard-wearing and practical accessories, ensure everyone travels in premium class comfort without compromise. The split tailgate and height adjustable air suspension are an added bonus for easier loading and unloading.
The Land Rover Discovery continues to drive power and all-terrain capability with efficient diesel and petrol engine options when matched with fuel-stretching Stop/Start** technology and the refined ZF 8-speed automatic transmission.
The 155kW 3.0-litre TDV6 remains the diesel engine entry level option, delivering 8.8l/100km and a CO2 figure from 230g/km on a combined cycle. The higher-powered 188kW 3.0-litre SDV6 gives equivalent fuel consumption and CO2 figures.
The Land Rover Discovery retains its position as the ultimate vehicle for all-terrain capability and versatility, with over 1,160,000 retail sales and 225 international awards since its launch in 1989.
