Land Rover has announced the launch of a special edition for its 2019 Discovery Sport, called the Landmark Edition. Priced at Rs 53.77 lakh (ex-showroom, India), the Discovery Sport Landmark Edition gets minor cosmetic changes on the outside and inside, and three exclusive exterior colour options – Narvik Black, Yulong White and Corris Grey.
Available only with the 180hp, 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel engine, the special-edition SUV sports a new grey contrast roof (with all the exterior finishes), a new design front bumper and new 18-inch grey alloy wheels. The cabin of the Landmark Edition gets new ebony-grained leather seats, a black headliner and a dark grey aluminium finish on the centre console.
Other than these minor changes, the Discovery Sport Landmark Edition is identical to its standard seven-seat brethren. At Rs 53.77 lakh, the Landmark Edition slots between the Discovery Sport SE (Rs 52.47 lakh) and the HSE (Rs 55.81 lakh). The Land Rover Discovery Sport range now starts at Rs 44.68 lakh and goes up to Rs 61.27 lakh for the diesels, while the petrol line-up (powered by a 240hp, 2.0-litre engine) consists of the SE (Rs 50.36 lakh) and the HSE (Rs 53.75 lakh).
In India, the Landmark Edition model rivals other luxury SUVs like the BMW X3, Audi Q5, Volvo XC60 and the Mercedes-Benz GLC. At the end of last year, Land Rover had launched the 2019 update for the Discovery Sport, adding the 180hp diesel across a larger section of its line-up and more equipment.
