Default The New Discovery 4 Scoops Multiple Awards




Quote:
GAYDON, UNITED KINGDOM September 30, 2009: The new Discovery 4 has taken home two accolades at the Caravan Club's Towcar of the Year Awards 2010, which took place at the Royal Automobile Club in London last week. These are the first awarded to the new Discovery 4, which went on-sale in UK dealerships earlier this month.

The Discovery 4 won the 'Best Towcar Over 32,000' class and the 'All Wheel Drive Over 1800kg' category, beating the likes of the Lexus RX450h, Mercedes Benz E and C class, Volvo XC70 and XC60 and the Isuzu Rodeo. The testing was carried out at Millbrook Proving Ground to determine the car's towing ability, dynamics when hitched, acceleration and braking.

Speaking at the awards ceremony, driving judge, Barry Williams of The Caravan Club commented: "The Land Rover Discovery 4 stood out among an astonishingly good selection of cars in the two classes it entered. It will go anywhere and offers an impressive array of caravan-friendly features. I'm sure it will be a popular choice with our members and their families."

The Discovery 4 has a class-leading 3500kgs towing ability and comes with new intelligent towing technologies such as Tow Assist, which helps the driver perform accurate towing manoeuvres, and Trailer Stability Assist, a system that initiates engine torque reduction and braking interventions to bring the towing back under control when trailer oscillations and uninvited steering movements are detected.

"We are delighted to accept these awards from the Caravan Club and to see the new Discovery 4, following on from the enormous success of its predecessor, winning awards for its all-round capability and towing credentials," said Land Rover UK managing director, John Edwards.

The Discovery 4 features the new LR-TDV6 3.0-litre diesel engine, which delivers more power, improved refinement, better fuel economy and lower emissions. With an impressive 600Nm of torque at low rpm and intelligent towing technologies at the driver's disposal coupled with a more luxurious and comfortable interior cabin, it really is the perfect vehicle for caravan enthusiasts."

Priced from 31,995 on the road, the Discovery 4 is on-sale now at Land Rover dealerships throughout the UK. For more information or to book at test drive visit your local Land Rover dealership or log onto www.landrover.co.uk.
