The all-new Discovery 3 has been crowned the Scottish SUV of the Year for 2004. The title, given by the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers (ASMW) was awarded to the Discovery 3 over some of its toughest rivals in the sector, including BMW and Mitsubishi.
Ally Ballingall, President of the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers said of the award: "Off-road vehicles usually provide on-road compromises but our 4x4/SUV of the year proves that there's an exception to every rule. This machine provides the ultimate mix of fashion and functionality, and is a winner in every sense."
Land Rover lead designer, Andy Wheel, who collected the award, added: "The Discovery 3 is a bold piece of design, and this reflects the bold thinking that runs through the whole vehicle, from the smart solutions that have delivered a class-leading vehicle in terms of space, through to its refinement and technology. We are all proud of the Discovery 3, as will be all those who drive it."
Having now won its second award in as many months, this latest accolade is received on the day when the Discovery 3 goes on sale and the first customers will be receiving their new vehicles.
The all-new Discovery 3 is on sale from Land Rover dealerships throughout the UK, starting at £26,995 for the TDV6 and topping out at £46,995 for the V8 HSE.
