Land Rover Discovery 4 Scores BIVSA and Towcar Awards

If you want to tow a small caravan - the result of the recent Towcar Awards point the finger towards the new Passat. However, if you want all the grunt in the world that’s needed for a horse-box or a big motorboat, you’ll need the new Discovery 4, more specifically the 3.0 SDV6 XS model that was named winner of the 1900kg category for the second year running.

"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," commented Nigel Donnelly, Practical Caravan editor.

Not contempt with just one award at a time, the rugged off-roader, which is now in it’s forth incarnation, has also scored something for its anti-theft protection from the acclaimed British Insurance Vehicle Security Awards in the UK.

The Discovery 4 took the top spot after it was 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.

"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," said Colin Green, managing director of Land Rover UK.
