The appeal of Land Rover’s popular compact SUVs, the Discovery Sport and Range Rover Evoque, have been broadened with a pair of unique special editions.

 

Discovery Sport Urban Edition

The new Discovery Sport Urban Edition is based on the existing R-Dynamic specification and features distinctive design elements including shadow aluminium finishes, non-leather Luxtec suede seats and a black contrast roof. The Urban Edition is available in six exterior colourways.

 

The Urban Edition features Land Rover’s latest technology, including a powered tailgate and ClearSight interior rear view mirror which switches seamlessly between a video feed and mirror, allowing the driver to see what’s behind the vehicle easily, even when their view is obscured by passengers or luggage.

 

The Discovery Sport Urban Edition is available with a choice of two four-cylinder Ingenium powertrains, both paired with eight-speed automatic transmissions. The D200 turbodiesel produces 147kW and 430Nm while the P250 turbocharged petrol unit is capable of 183kW and 365Nm.

 

Range Rover Evoque Bronze Collection

The Bronze edition builds on the Evoque’s sophisticated design and luxurious interior and is based on the Evoque S specification.

 

A distinctive Corinthian Bronze contrast roof, Burnished Copper side vents and exclusive new Satin Dark Grey 20-inch five spoke alloy wheels distinguish the exterior.

 

Available in three exterior colours; Carpathian Grey, Santorini Black and Seoul Pearl Silver, the changes highlight the trademark floating roof and reductive exterior design of the Evoque. Inside, natural Grey Ash veneers, unique Bronze collection carpet mats with metal-capped corners paired with Ebony grained leather seats ensure a greater sense of luxury.

 

Added equipment includes a sliding panoramic roof, while the premium LED headlights with signature daylight running lights and animated turn signals ensure a sophisticated light signature. The ClearSight Interior rear view mirror is also available as standard.

 

The Bronze Collection Special Edition is available with a full range of powerful and efficient D200, P250 and P300e Ingenium petrol and diesel engines. The efficient P300e Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle combines a 1.5 litre Ingenium three-cylinder petrol engine with an electric motor, that allows for 55km of pure electric driving. Efficiency is outstanding with the P300e using as little as 2.0 litres per 100km.

 

Availability

The Discovery Sport Urban Edition and Range Rover Evoque Bronze Collection special edition models are planned for South African introduction in the fourth quarter of 2021. Pricing will be made available closer to the time.
