Urban-themed 2022 Land Rover Discovery Metropolitan edition launched at Rs 1.26 crore
Jaguar Land Rover India has begun accepting bookings for the 2022 Land Rover Discovery Metropolitan edition. Prices for the luxury SUV have also been announced at Rs 1.26 crore. The Discovery Metropolitan edition is based on the sportier R-Dynamic exterior package but is specced with more features and carries a more road-focused aesthetic. This follows the launch of the facelifted Land Rover Discovery in India last year.
2022 Land Rover Discovery Metropolitan edition exterior
The new special edition Land Rover Discovery gets the sportier bumpers from the R-Dynamic variants but carries a contrasting chrome and grey theme. This is seen with the chrome Bright Atlas detailing for the grille and badges while there are silver bumper inserts and dual-tone grey and silver design for the 20-inch alloy wheels. A set of black brake callipers round off the exterior differences.
