The Land Rover Discovery has won an Auto Express Used Car honour for the second consecutive year with the 'Used 4x4 of the Year' accolade for 2003.
Chosen as the best vehicle in the 4x4 category, the Discovery was judged a superior used buy to the BMW X5 and Jeep Grand Cherokee. The vehicle has sold over 170,000 in the UK since its 1989 launch and has a history of success in Auto Express honours, with the 'Best 4x4 off-roader' accolade in the New Car Honours for 2001, New Car Honours for the 21st century and Used Car Honours for 2002.
Commenting on this latest award, marketing director for Land Rover UK, Colin Green said: "The Discovery is clearly a winner whether bought new or used, and the vehicle performs consistently year in year out in the hands of the toughest judges of any product - its customers. We hope that this award, coupled with the fact that there are excellent offers in Land Rover showrooms currently, makes the decision making a little easier on buyers before a busy Easter weekend of used vehicle shopping."
The full Land Rover model range is available from over 130 dealerships in the UK, all of which sell used vehicles under the commended Land Rover Approved Used Car Programme. All approved used Land Rovers come with 12-months' unlimited mileage warranty, 12-months' roadside assistance, independent vehicle mileage and history checks and a 30-day exchange guarantee.Published 16 April 2003
