The Discovery 4 has collected the Best All-Terrain 4WD Award for 2010
Not only is it the second consecutive year that the Discovery 4 has brought home the gold, it marks a record-breaking sixth consecutive years that the Land Rover Discovery has won the Best All-Terrain 4WD Award, proving once again it is still the benchmark for all-terrain SUV's. Nothing can match Discovery's outstanding breadth of capability, luxury and refinement.
Australia's Best Cars had the following to say about the Best All-Terrain 4WD winner: "Versatility, on-road sophistication and go-almost-anywhere off-road ability once again made it impossible to go past Discovery 4 as our all-terrain favourite".
This year it crossed swords with the Prado & Land Cruiser turbo-diesel models from Toyota, as well Mitsubishi's Pajero and Challenger models and the Nissan Pathfinder. The Discovery 4 came out in front thanks to better on-road handling, a more premium interior, and efficient and powerful diesel engine.
Chris Lidis, Land Rover Director Operations commented, "……To receive this recognition from such a respected authority is a fantastic achievement at any time, but for Discovery to win Australia's Best Cars Award six years in a row,….that is a testimony that this vehicle is truly exceptional".
This award comes just days after the Discovery 4 was crowned the 2010 'Drive Car of the Year - Best 4WD' for the second year running.
The Discovery 4 continues to offer unbeatable versatility, capability and refinement. Alongside the fresh exterior design, the premium interior, improved dynamics and the more powerful and more fuel efficient 3.0-litre TDV6 powertrain, it also offers new state of the art user-friendly features such as a Surround Camera system, Gradient Release Control, Trailer Stability Assist and Tow Assist, Automatic High Beam Assist and keyless entry.
