Landrover Discovery Success At Auto Express Used Car Honours 2002
LANDROVER DISCOVERY SUCCESS AT AUTO EXPRESS USED CAR HONOURS 2002 - 27 March 2002
Gaydon, Warwickshire, 27 March, 2002 – Land Rover's Discovery Series II has been awarded the honour of Auto Express Used 4x4 of the Year for 2002.
Chosen as the best vehicle in the 4x4 category, the Land Rover was judged a superior used buy to the Isuzu Trooper and Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Discovery, which has sold over 160,000 in the UK since its 1989 launch, has a history of success in the Auto Express awards, with the 'Best 4x4 off-roader' award in the publication's New Car Honours for 2001, and the same accolade in the Auto Express New Car Honours for the 21st century.
Commenting on this year's award, Deborah Laurent, used vehicle marketing manager for Land Rover UK, said: "Discovery is clearly a winner whether bought new or used and the vehicle performs consistently year in, year out in the hands of the toughest judges of any product – its customers. This is encouraging news and is proof to buyers before a busy Easter weekend of used vehicle shopping, that in 4x4, Discovery is a clear leader."
The full Land Rover model range is available from over 130 dealerships in the UK, all of which sell used Land Rovers under the commended Land Rover Approved Used Car Programme. All approved used Land Rovers come with 12-months unlimited mileage warranty, 12-months roadside assistance, independent vehicle mileage and history checks and a 30-day exchange guarantee.
