Land Rover has strengthened the appeal of the Discovery with the introduction of a new special edition. The Metropolitan Edition features a suite of technologies to enhance the comfort and convenience provided by Land Rover’s seven-seat family SUV.

Sitting at the top of the Discovery line-up, the new Metropolitan Edition provides a host of exterior upgrades and a generous standard specification. It is available with a choice of electrified powertrains, with the powerful P360 Ingenium petrol or efficient RDE2-certified, Euro 6d-Final-compliant D300 Ingenium diesel both featuring 48V Mild-Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) technology.

Alongside the arrival of the Metropolitan Edition, the Discovery Commercial is also now available in purposeful R-Dynamic specification for the first time, enhancing the appeal of Land Rover’s premium utility vehicle.

Finbar McFall, Land Rover Brand Director, said: “The introduction of the Metropolitan Edition brings a new level of premium appeal to the Land Rover Discovery. The special edition model represents the flagship of the line-up and builds on the appeal of the R-Dynamic specification with exterior design enhancements and a suite of convenience-boosting technologies.”

This is complemented by Hakuba Silver lower bumper inserts, 22-inch Diamond Turned alloy wheels with Gloss Grey detailing, black Land Rover brake calipers, Privacy Glass and a Sliding Panoramic Roof.

Standard features inside include a Head-up Display and heated steering wheel, wireless phone charging, a front cooler compartment and four-zone climate control. The cabin is enhanced with Titanium Mesh trim detailing.

Elsewhere in the line-up, the R-Dynamic model now features a Gloss Black Contrast Roof as standard. The Discovery remains the most capable and versatile full-sized SUV, with best-in-class 3,500kg towing capacity2 and Advanced Tow Assist technology, which takes the stress out of difficult reversing manoeuvres.

The Discovery family is also available with Land Rover’s advanced Cabin Air Purification with PM2.5 air filtration1, which monitors air quality inside and filters out harmful particulates for a healthier interior environment.
