Land Rover Discovery 4 Wins Best 4X4 Category
Land Rover’s Discovery 4 has been named ‘Best 4×4’ at the annual Diesel Car, Car of the Year Awards 2010, beating the Freelander 2 and the Range Rover to the top spot.
Ian Robertson, editor of Diesel Car Magazine said: “We offer no apologies for an all Land Rover line-up as finalists in this category, as the British firm’s 2010 range is simply the best ever. The Discovery 4 has always been unbeatable off-road, and now it has the on-road ace to match, with decent road manners and top notch refinement. There’s even enough room for seven full size adults on-board – and there aren’t many vehicles that can cope with that.”
The Discovery 4 is a supremely versatile seven-seat vehicle which now comes with a powerful and highly efficient TDV6 3.0-litre twin turbo diesel engine. The new engine delivers a nine percent fuel economy improvement (EU combined cycle) and ten percent* less CO2 emissions, at the same time as increasing power by 29%, compared with the outgoing 2.7-litre engine.
Together with a new fresh exterior identity and a more premium cabin, the class-leading breadth of capability of the Discovery 4 has now been extended even further with greater dynamic improvements for both on-road and off-road driving and a host of user-friendly technologies.
John Edwards, managing director for Land Rover UK added: “The outgoing Discovery 3 received over 100 international awards, and yet we’ve found ways to improve virtually every aspect of the new vehicle. It is therefore extremely rewarding for Land Rover to have received the one-two-three and recognition that that the best has just got better!”
