The Land Rover Discovery 4 has scooped Best Large SUV at the prestigious Auto Express 2010 New Car Award, triumphing over the BMW X5.
The Land Rover Discovery 4 - the fourth generation of Land Rover's supremely versatile seven-seat vehicle - was introduced last September. Demand has been high for the latest iteration with sales in the UK so far this year up 73 per cent on the same period last year. It features a powerful and highly efficient new TDV6 diesel engine, fresh exterior identity and more premium cabin. The class-leading breadth of capability has been extended even further with dynamic improvements for both road and off-road driving. Prices start from £35,995.
Auto Express Road Test editor, Ross Pinnock, said "Blending seven-seat practicality, luxury car desirability and unstoppable off-road ability, the big British 4x4 truly is a family car for all seasons. This year, the all-wheel drive machine's margin of victory was greater than ever, thanks to a mid-life refresh that dealt with its predecessor's few weaknesses."Published 4 August 2010
