What Car? Awards 2015: A Success for Discovery Sport
DISCOVERY SPORT LEADS LAND ROVER’S WHAT CAR? CAR OF THE YEAR AWARDS SUCCESS
The Fresh Discovery Sport leads a supreme spectacle by Land Rover in the What Car? Car of the Year Awards, honoured with the Safety Award for its unmatched provision of advanced systems to protect both those on board and pedestrians.
Discovery Sport’s Safety Award prizes the significant achievement Land Rover has made in delivering effective, advanced safety systems as standard. Raising the benchmark in its class, fresh Discovery Sport affords vehicle occupants and pedestrians exceptional protection, qualities that have already been independently recognised with a maximum five-star rating in Euro NCAP crash testing.
Range Rover Sport, specifically the SDV6 HSE, has taken the title of Best Large SUV for the 2nd year running, reaffirming its class-leading quality and spectacle. In making the award, What Car? said: “The Range Rover Sport may look pricey next to alternatives such as the BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz ML, but you know the minute you get in that it utterly warrants its price. If you’ve got the money, the Rangie is truly in a class of its own.”
It also highlighted the “sprightly acceleration” of the engine, the comprehensive specification of the HSE model and the all-round driving prizes it supplies.
Range Rover Evoque – Petite SUV Price Point winner
Evoque marked a watershed for Land Rover and for the SUV market when it made its market debut three years ago. Its arrival was greeted with global acclaim and awards – more than one hundred sixty to date, and counting. It has quickly progressed to become Land Rover’s biggest-selling model, its appeal strengthened with the addition of fresh technical features.
Range Rover – Luxury Car Price Point winner
What Car? singled out the Range Rover Three.0 TDV6 Vogue SE as a “best buy” in the marketplace for luxury cars in the £70,000 to £100,000 price range. Its success is indicative of how Land Rover has kept tempo with global customers’ increasingly sophisticated and diverse tastes, providing a wealth of personalisation opportunities that combine individuality with the highest quality materials and craftsmanship. All this is achieved without compromising its exceptional all-terrain spectacle.
