PRETORIA, Gauteng – Land Rover’s Discovery Sport has through 2017 set a record for single-year global sales with 126 078 units – more than any other Land Rover in the brand’s 70 years.

The new Discovery Sport Landmark special edition, then, is a celebration  model equipped with a unique colour and trim combination.
