The Land Rover Discovery 3 has scooped Best Large SUV at the prestigious Auto Express New Car Awards 2009.

On the Land Rover Discover 3, Auto Express Motoring and Digital editor, Daniel Strong said: "It's not hard to see why it took our top award, because its versatile design fulfils many roles - from seven-seater MPV to off-tarmac workhorse."

Land Rover UK's managing director, John Edwards, said: "The Discovery 3 continues to receive numerous high-status accolades and we are confident that its successor, the new Discovery 4, will build upon the superb achievements of the outgoing model with new powertrain, improved dynamics and a fresh design."

On sale in the UK from 1st September 2009, the new fourth generation of Land Rover's supremely versatile seven-seat vehicle gains a new name - Discovery 4 - to go with its powerful and highly efficient new TDV6 diesel engine, fresh exterior identity and more premium cabin. The class-leading breadth of capability is extended even further with dynamic improvements for both road and off-road driving, and Land Rover has added a battery of user-friendly new technologies and features. Prices start from £31,995. For more information or to book a test drive, visit your local Land Rover dealership.
