Land Rover Discovery of 2015 is revealed with minor updates. Borrowed the styling cues from 25th anniversary special edition launched earlier this year, the cabin is done with the option of Ebony/Cirrus Dual-tone Windsor Leather seats and the Grand Black Lacquer wood and leather-wrapped steering wheel. A new Straight Grained Walnut wood and leather steering wheel also becomes available, with respective wood veneer sets offered as an additional customer option with both steering wheel designs to further enhance the premium feel of the interior. InControl Apps is added to the 2015 package for a number of key markets.
On the outers, the XXV 20-inch 5-split spoke forged alloy wheels with a light silver polished finish is standard. New body colours are added, namely Aruba, Kaikoura Stone and Montalcino Red to be on offer from start of sales, followed by a new metallic white called Yulong to join the range at a later date.

Striking attributes from this anniversary derivative are now being made available across the range for our customers to bring that level of heightened luxury into their Discovery of choice,” said Phil Popham, Jaguar Land Rover Group Marketing Director.
“InControl Apps adds another dimension to the Discovery’s attributes and another meaning to work-life balance by enabling safe and efficient access to essential smartphone content and in-car apps from the vehicle’s touchscreen,” he added.
