The design, technology and capability of Land Rover's current model range has been reflected in the brand's emphatic success in the 2012 Diesel Car Awards.
The Range Rover Evoque added the magazine's 'Best Crossover' and overall 'Car of the Year' titles to its exceptional tally of 112 worldwide honours. The judges acclaimed Evoque as, "stunning to look at and stunning to drive…a car that is instantly a classic".
Ian Robertson, Diesel Car editor, said: "Already an icon, the Evoque combines stunning design and brilliant engineering to great effect."
While Evoque claimed the ultimate prize, the Land Rover Discovery 4 won the 'Best 4x4 Award' for the third successive year.
Land Rover UK marketing Director, Laura Schwab said: "We are delighted that Range Rover Evoque continues to set standards for design, engineering and performance right around the world.
"With the lowest CO2 figure of any Land Rover of 129g / km, from the efficient 2.2 eD4 diesel engine, this latest award from Diesel Car Magazine is a further demonstration of Land Rover’s continuous focus on technology and customer requirements.
"Moreover, the continuing success of Discovery 4 in these awards and the high praise for Range Rover represent a valuable, independent judgement on Land Rover's across-the-board approach to delivering the highest standards throughout its model range."
