THE Discovery Sport and Range Rover Evoque’s appeal has been widened with a pair of unique special editions.

A Discovery Sport Urban Edition is based on the existing R-Dynamic specification and features distinctive design elements including shadow aluminium finishers, non-leather Luxtec Suedecloth seats, and a black contrast roof.

The Urban Edition features Land Rover’s latest technology, including a powered tailgate and ClearSight Interior Rearview Mirror which switches seamlessly between a video feed and mirror, that allows the driver to see what’s behind the car easily.

The Discovery Sport Urban Edition is available with a choice of two four-cylinder Ingenium engines both paired with eight-speed automatic transmissions.

The D200 turbodiesel produces 147kW and a hefty 430Nm with acceleration from 0-100km/h happening in 8.6 seconds, while the 183kW/365Nm P250 turbopetrol delivers 0-100km/h in 7.8 seconds.

The new Range Rover Evoque Bronze Collection Special Edition builds on the Range Rover Evoque’s sophisticated design and luxurious interior, based on the well-appointed Evoque S specification.

The new model is distinguished by its distinctive Corinthian Bronze contrast roof, Burnished Copper side vents and exclusive new Satin Dark Grey 20-inch five split-spoke alloy wheels.

A sliding panoramic roof enhances the cabin, while the Premium LED headlights with signature Daylight Running Lights (DRLs) and animated directional indicators provide added visual sophistication to the exterior.

Land Rover’s innovative ClearSight Interior Rearview Mirror is also available as standard, enhancing visibility and driver confidence at the touch of a button.

The Bronze Collection Special Edition is available with the full range of powerful and efficient D200, P250 and P300e Ingenium petrol and diesel engines.

The efficient P300e Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) combines a 1.5-litre Ingenium three-cylinder petrol engine with an electric motor for a smooth zero-emissions pure-electric driving range of 55km.

As with all Land Rovers, the Discovery Sport and Evoque are offered with a standard Land Rover Care Plan which includes a 100,000km warranty and servicing within a five-year period, whichever comes first.

The Discovery Sport Urban Edition and Range Rover Evoque Bronze Collection Special Edition are set to launch in Mzansi in the fourth quarter of 2021.
