Discovery IIa Wins Top Used Car Honors
Gaydon, Warwickshire, 16 March, 2005 - The Land Rover Discovery Series IIa has won an Auto Express Used Car Honor for the fourth consecutive year with the 'Best 4x4 Off-Roader' accolade for 2005.
Judged as the best vehicle in its category, the Discovery beat off competition from BMW's X5 and the Kia Sorento, having sold over 200,000 in the UK since its launch in 1989. The Range Rover was also highly commended in the 'Large Executive Car' category.
Commenting on the Discovery's award, Auto Express editor-in-chief, David Johns, said: "Still the best used buy in this sector, the recently replaced Discovery is king off the road, with amazing mud-plugging abilities and a rugged image that few of its rivals can even dream of matching."
He added: "Land Rover's marketing men have done a brilliant job over the last decade of bringing Land Rover to the forefront of luxury brands, where it now happily mixes with the most prestigious German makers."
The full Land Rover model range is available from over 130 dealerships in the UK, all of which sell used vehicles under the commended Land Rover Approved Used Car Program.
