The Land Rover Discovery XXV special edition will mark 25 years of the famous four-wheel-drive nameplate when it launches in Australia in the third quarter of the year.

Land Rover Discovery XXV Special Edition

The distinctively styled Discovery XXV features Narvik Black grille surrounds and mirror caps, Dark Atlas features on the grille and side vents, silver roof rails, body-coloured door handles and a stainless steel rear bumper tread plate.

Newly designed 20-inch polished silver forged alloy wheels and XXV badges on the front door and tailgate further distinguish the special edition on the outside.

The XXV’s cabin features leather-upholstered dashboard, instrument cluster cover and doorsill panels in three colour combinations. Twist pile carpet mats, a leather-wrapped wooden steering wheel and subtle XXV embossing throughout further define the special edition.

The Discovery XXV adds to the luxury HSE specification on which it’s based with auto high beam assist, adaptive xenon headlights, daytime running lights and keyless entry.

Like the HSE, the Land Rover Discovery XXV will be powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 producing 183kW and 600Nm, distributing drive to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Australian pricing will be confirmed closer to its local launch, though the Discovery XXV is expected to demand a premium over the $95,545 HSE grade.
