THE 2016 LAND ROVER Discovery Landmark and Graphite special editions are expected to arrive in Australia towards the middle of 2016 and are intended to stretch out interest in the Discovery until the next-generation model Discovery 5 arrives.

“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 is based on the SDV6 HSE derivative but gets 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, black fender vents, grille and mirror caps and silver bonnet and tail-gate badges, alongside ‘Landmark’ badging to the side and rear. Exclusive 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.
On the inside, the Landmark variant gets Windsor Leather seats and the Extended Leather Pack. Landmark specific interior upgrades include a centre console cooler box and cold climate pack including, heated steering wheel, and heated front and rear seats. It also runs the Land Rover Vision Assist Pack which includes Adaptive Xenon headlamps, Automatic High Beam Assist and the Surround Camera system.
The Discovery Graphite adds to the Black Pack launched earlier this year 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 feature a gloss black and lighter grey frame, match existing grey highlights appointed to the door handles and the Discovery badging to the bonnet and tailgate. Exclusive to the Graphite are 19-inch 7-split spoke alloy wheel in a high gloss dark grey.
Available in the 3.0L TDV6 or 3.0L SDV6 SE the latter adds a centre console cooler box, keyless entry and HDD navigation to the standard specification.
