The Land Rover Discovery 4 has been crowned 4X4 of the Year by 4X4 Australia magazine in a rigorous four-day test conducted by seven off-road experts in rural NSW. Pitted against rivals, such as the Toyota LandCruiser, Nissan Patrol and Jeep Wrangler, the Discovery 4 came out in front thanks to its superior design, technology, and class-leading diesel engine.
4X4 Australia’s editor Marcus Craft said: “The Disco 4 consistently impressed us over all kinds of terrain in all kinds of conditions during our four-day torture test. It achieved the highest total scores across five criteria – Value for Money, Doing the Job, Bushability, Breaking New Ground, and Built Tough – against five of its rivals. It’s superbly comfortable on-road and supremely capable off-road. The Discovery 4 deserves 4X4 Australia’s 4X4 of the Year title.”
Land Rover Australia Brand Manager Tim Krieger commented, "The Discovery 4 is regarded as The 'World's Most Awarded 4WD', receiving more than 62 awards across 17 countries globally, and it continues to win awards for its unrivalled versatility and breadth of capability, accommodating up to seven passengers in comfort whatever the terrain.”
"By winning this award the Discovery 4 has proved once again it is still the benchmark for 4X4s.”
The Discovery 4 continues to offer unbeatable versatility, capability and refinement. Alongside the fresh exterior design and premium interior, the outstanding 183kW 3.0-litre LR-SDV6 and entry-level 155kW 3.0-litre LR-TDV6 diesels will now power the Discovery 4 with the ZF 8HP70 8-speed automatic transmission offering improved fuel economy and less CO2 emissions.
