The Discovery Sport topped Land Rover’s sales chart in 2017, selling 126,078 units globally. More than 3.5 lakh examples of the SUV have been sold since its inception in 2014.
The new Landmark Edition has been revealed to celebrate the Discovery Sport's success as the fastest-selling Land Rover of all time.
Available with either 178bhp diesel or 237bhp petrol engine, the Landmark offers unique colour and trim combinations. The SUV is available in three colours – Narvik Black, Corris Grey and Yulong White, all featuring a Carpathian Grey contrast roof.
It also features Graphite Atlas exterior accents and 19-inch Style 521 ‘Mantis’ wheels in glossy grey. The interior features ebony grained leather seats and an ebony headliner, complemented by dark grey aluminium finishers around the centre stack.
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.
On Landmark Edition’s reveal, Finbar Macfall, Global Product Marketing Director, Land Rover said, 'The Discovery Sport is loved by customers because it demonstrates the breadth of Land Rover’s ability, offering unrivalled all-terrain capability with the versatility for up to seven people and a premium interior. We have sold more than 350,000 Discovery Sports globally since its introduction in 2014, with 126,078 models sold in 2017 – the best single-model annual sales in Land Rover’s 70-year history.'
