The Land Rover Discovery 4 has won the 'Best Used SUV' award at the 2016 Car Dealer Used Car Awards, to add to the many awards the fourth-generation model has already won.
This latest accolade is the 86th award given to the Discovery 4 – which was also named 'Tow Car of the Decade' at the annual Tow Car Awards earlier on in the year – and that is a figure many cars can’t even get close to.
Each individual competitor is judged by how well it can hold its value over a three-year/30,000-mile period, and by some margin, the Discovery 4 beat many of its rivals by a fair distance in terms of holding its value. It was also found to have spent less time on the forecourt than the majority of its rivals, showing how popular a vehicle it is.
On the awarding of the prize, Car Dealer's expert panel said:
"We've researched the numbers thoroughly. We've obtained data from Auto Trader, CAP HPI and Glass's, looking at figures relating to residual values and the number of days it takes to sell. Therefore, the Best Used SUV award goes to the Land Rover Discovery.
Few things are better than riding around in comfort and luxury in a car that can go just about anywhere, and our best SUV manages both of these things in fine style. It has been incredibly popular amongst both dealers and the public since it was first launched in 1989 as a result."
This comes in the same year that the new Discovery 5 was announced, and we at Land Rover hope to maintain the superb performance of the Discovery brand, which has held is in good stead for so many years.
