LAND ROVER WINS THREE AWARDS AT WHAT CAR? AWARDS 2020
Land Rover has won three coveted What Car? Awards at the 42nd running of the UK’s most prestigious recognition of excellence in automotive.
The Discovery was named Best Luxury SUV under £60,000, the Range Rover Evoque was awarded Best Family SUV, the Range Rover Velar took Best Coupe SUV. The all-new Land Rover Defender took home the Reader Award for most anticipated car of 2020 with more than double the votes of any other car.
The Range Rover Evoque won Best Family SUV, since the creation of the Range Rover Evoque global sales have exceeded 772,096 and more than 217 international awards have been won. The newest Range Rover Evoque is a slightly more sophisticated version of the previous design, featuring a number of world-first technologies it has followed on from the previous model in terms of global success. Over 80,000 were sold around the world in 2019, 23,287 of those in the uk.
Here’s what the Judging panel had to say about the Best SUV Coupe: the Range Rover Velar: “the Velar is like those people you see at music festivals who somehow define glamour while effortlessly shrugging off the mud; that ability is in its genes. It balances style and substance without losing its grip on the realities of daily life, and our favourite engine and trim combo keeps its price down. High fashion has never been so rational”
This latest award comes nearly two years after the Range Rover Velar was crowned most beautiful car in the world by jurors in 2018.
The new Land Rover Defender won the Reader Award for most anticipated car of 2020. The Reader award is voted on What Car? Readers alone. The New Defender received more than twice as many votes as any other car.
“The What Car? Awards have long been among the most trusted in the industry and our performance this year is a perfect affirmation of the path that we’ve set Land Rover on. Not only are two of our current vehicles now objectively the best in their respective classes, but the future also looks equally bright, with huge enthusiasm from the general public for the new Defender.”
