The Land Rover Discovery 3 has scooped an Auto Express New Car Honour - in the 4x4 Off-Roader category - or the second year running, beating off tougher competition than ever.
To claim the 2006 New Car Honour, the Discovery 3 defeated stiff opposition from the Audi Q7 and Volvo XC90. With a highly acclaimed TDV6 2.7 litre diesel engine, spacious seven-seat layout and plentiful storage, the Discovery 3 is an agile and practical offering on-road whilst off-road technology such as Terrain Response™, Hill Descent Control and Electronic Traction Control makes it unbeatable off-road too.
Auto Express editor-in-chief, David Johns commented: "Whether towing, mountain climbing, family carrying or simply taking the sting out of the daily commute, Land Rover’s Discovery never fails to impress us. Champion for the second year in a row, the big Brit has an unmatched range of abilities that sets it apart from every other car in the class."
John Edwards, managing director, Land Rover UK added: "It's fantastic that the Discovery 3 has proved yet again its versatility and staying-power in an increasingly competitive sector, with this, its 77th award off experts from around the world."Published 21 June 2006
