Land Rover Discovery 4 Named Best Diesel 4×4


Before the current generation of Land Rover discovery comes along, it really wasn’t a very interesting car. A tall and ugly SUV which although had great off-road capabilities, it had gained a reputation as a car for murderers who want something big to dump the body of their victims into the woods with!

That’s all changed now. These days the Disco is a good-looking, supremely capable alternative for those who can’t afford a Range Rover. It has proven itself many times and evidence of that is the numerous awards it’s been winning since it was launched.

The latest is title for the best diesel-powered 4×4 in 2011 courtesy of Diesel Car magazine. It is the second year in a row that the Disco wins this award.

Check out the official press release to see what’s so good about it:

One year on there is still nothing to rival the Land Rover Discovery 4 as it claims its second successive ‘Best 4×4′ title in the 2011 Diesel Car awards.

Announcing the award, Diesel Car Editor Iain Robertson declared: “If there is a more all-round capable car than the Discovery 4, we have yet to encounter it. With the latest generation Discovery you get everything you need to drive absolutely everywhere.”

The Discovery 4 was in good company in the competition, with its sister Freelander 2 model also in the final running, continuing to impress the judges after winning the title in 2008 and 2009 and being a finalist in 2010. The British-built Discovery 4 also triumphed over the BMW X5 in the final reckoning.

The Diesel Car accolade confirms the breadth of capability of the fourth generation Discovery, a model that has picked up a raft of industry honours since its launch in 2009. These include the 2010 What Car? 4×4 of the Year and 2009 Scottish Car of the Year titles, plus two awards in the 2010 Towcar of the Year contest. Most recently it was named Best Luxury 4×4 by Carbuyer.co.uk.

Colin Green, Managing Director Land Rover UK said: “We are thrilled to receive this award, doing so for a second year running shows that the Discovery 4 continues to hold a clear advantage over its market rivals. And with Freelander performing so strongly, we can be proud of the strength-in-depth of our engineering, design and performance.”

The Land Rover Discovery 4 is available from £36,785 and delivers a winning package of impressive on-road dynamics, superb all-wheel drive capability and sophisticated, contemporary design, exemplifying the qualities at the heart of all today’s Land Rover models.
