The Land Rover Discovery nameplate turns 30 this year, and to commemorate the occasion, the automaker released the special edition Discovery Landmark Edition for the UK market. The SUV is based on the Discovery SE, but adds the Dynamic Exterior Pack that includes a new front bumper design with Narvik Black radiator grille and fender vents.

The Discovery lettering on the bonnet and tailgate are also finished in Narvik Black, and the rear end features a new Landmark badge positioned just below the company badge. Other exterior features include fixed front and rear panoramic roofs, front fog lights and signature Hi-Line tail lights, while privacy glass and 20-inch gloss black wheels complete the look.

Inside, customers get to choose between Ebony or Acorn grained leather. A satin brushed centre console and unique aluminium mesh trimmings also set it apart, and included in the vehicle is the 380-watt Meridian Sound System (upgraded from the 250-watt Enhanced Sound System), which Land Rover claims to help create a truly first-class travel experience.

Jaguar Land Rover UK’s managing director, Rawdon Glover said: “The Discovery Landmark Edition is a compelling package. Taking our best-selling SD4 and SD6 Discovery SE models and adding key design features that resonate well with our customers, results in a genuine value proposition that befits a celebration special edition.”

The Discovery Landmark Edition is available in both Land Rover’s 2.0 litre SD4 (240 hp, 430 Nm) and 3.0 litre SD6 (306 hp, 700 Nm) diesel engines. Both share the same eight-speed automatic – the SD4 sprints from zero to 100 km/h in 8.7 seconds, whereas the SD6 manages the sprint in 7.5 seconds.

Of course, it comes packaged with All Terrain Progress Control and Terrain Response 2, which offers a number of off-road drive modes. The seven-seater SUV has the same 900-mm water wading depth, as well as a towing capacity of 3,500 kg. Available accessories include a Pet Pack, which is designed to improve travel comfort for canine companions. Find out what we think of the Discovery in our review, here.
