Land Rover Discovery 4 HSE Luxury Limited Edition

The new Discovery 4 HSE Luxury Limited Edition is guaranteed to turn heads with a distinctive new exterior look. Bright silver finishing picks out the full-length roof rails and complements the Noble (satin chrome) plated door mirror caps, silver bonnet script and tailgate badge. The grille treatment is the opposite of the existing style, the grille surround and fender vents finished in Indus Silver and the grille vanes in body colour.

Subtle yet sophisticated detailing is carried through to the rear of the vehicle by a bright finisher along the sides and tailgate, completed by a bright, stainless steel bumper tread strip and a unique bright metal badge showcasing 'HSE LUXURY'. Door handles are in body colour and the exterior is finished off with a set of 20-inch, 10-spoke alloy wheels. Three body colours are available, Santorini Black, Orkney Grey and for the first time on the Discovery 4, Havana.

"The HSE Luxury Limited Edition is probably the most luxurious specification yet offered on the Discovery 4, with striking exterior treatments and colour choices allowing customers to stamp their own personality on the vehicle. The stunning equipment levels are backed up by rugged durability, great performance and high efficiency," says John Edwards, Land Rover Global Brand Director.

The interior of the Limited Edition boasts Premium Windsor Leather, showcasing Ivory with contrast stitch for the first time. The Arabica seat colour - inspired from the Range Rover, is a first for the Discovery. Customers will also enjoy an extended Windsor Leather Pack to the fascia top, instrument panel binnacle, door top rolls, armrests and pull, while the perforated leather heated steering wheel is finished in Arabica or Ebony with bright switch tips from the Range Rover Sport Autobiography. The interior detailing is complete with a new Dark Zebrano (lacquered dark brown wood) veneer and twist pile luxury carpet mats with contrast edging.

A host of feature upgrades are also available with this Limited Edition model, including the Harman/Kardon LOGIC7® Premium Audio system which provides a staggering 825W of power, and Xenon Adaptive Front Headlamps including Cornering Lamps.
