Land Rover Discovery Sport Landmark Edition announced, confirmed for Oz

The Landmark Edition celebrates the fact the vehicle broke the single-year sales record for Land Rover, with 126,078 units sold in 2017.

JLR is celebrating sales success of the SUV by introducing a special edition model - Land Rover Discovery Sport Landmark. Customers can choose from three exterior colours for the special edition model: Narvik Black, Corris Grey, and Yulong White.

The Land Rover Discovery Sport Landmark Edition is now available to order from Land Rover's United Kingdom dealers, with prices starting at £40,400.

It may not come as a total surprise to learn that Land Rover's cheapest vehicle - the Discovery Sport - is also its biggest seller, with 126,078 units shifted in 2017 - the equivalent of 70 per cent of Jaguar's total sales for 2017 all on its own.

Girls Like You appears on the band's 6th studio album Red Pills Blue , which was released last November. Adam Levine and his band Maroon 5 has dropped a re-released a version of their song Girls Like You .

The Discovery Sport Landmark edition is powered exclusively by the 177bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine, mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

The announcement of the Discovery Sport Landmark was joined by the introduction of particulate filters across the car's engine range. All are matched to a Carpathian Grey contrast roof. Graphite Atlas exterior accents and 19-inch Style 521 "Mantis" design wheels finished in Gloss Dark Grey round up the exterior. The interior features Ebony grained leather seats and an Ebony headliner, complemented by dark grey aluminium finishers around the centre stack, a panoramic roof, Meridian sound system and heated steering wheel. While diesel particulate filters (DPFs) have been fitted to the auto from launch, this is the first time the filters have appeared on petrol engines. Both the engines are from the Ingenium family.

Last year, the Discovery Sport recorded the best single-model annual sales in Land Rover's 70-year history.
