The awards keep coming for Land Rover's impressive Discovery 4, with new honours announced on the same day for its performance as a towcar and for the anti-theft protection provided on the Discovery 4 Commercial.
For the second year running, the Discovery 4 3.0 SDV6 XS has been named the winner of the 1900kg-plus category in the UK's 2011 Towcar Awards, organised jointly by Practical Caravan and What Car? magazines and the Camping and Caravanning Club.
The awards are the acknowledged benchmark for towcar performance, and the 1900kg-plus category once again recognises Discovery 4's peerless capabilities. In rigorous tests, it outperformed rival contenders that included the Audi Q7, Mercedes-Benz ML and Volkswagen Touareg.
Nigel Donnelly, Practical Caravan editor, said: "Last year's overall champion easily retains its class crown, it's going to take a really exceptional car to beat it.
"The Land Rover Discovery 4 is a tremendous car to tow with. Its high-speed stability is the equal of any car– line the outfit up on a straight road and you could almost drive it blindfold. If you have the means, the Discovery remains an exceptionally good towcar."
Land Rover received its award at a presentation ceremony held at Woburn in Bedfordshire, UK, on 15 June.
Another award followed, this time from the UK insurance industry. The 2011 British Insurance Vehicle Security Awards (BIVSA) judged the Discovery 4 Commercial to offer the best standard security package among 4x4 vans in the UK new vehicle market.
The Discovery 4 took top spot in a hard-fought category, judged on design and features that protect against both theft of the vehicle and the theft of items from it. Key elements in the Discovery 4 Commercial that helped secure it the top ranking include excellent body security measures and effective vehicle identification features.
Colin Green, managing director of Land Rover UK, said: "These latest awards further confirm the breadth of Discovery 4's market-leading performance, as judged by independent experts. We are confident that our customers will be even more assured that they are making the right choice thanks to these and the many other honours that the Discovery 4 has received."
