New Discovery tallies up its second Car of the Year Award following Auto Express crowning it as its overall winner in June this year
The new Discovery has cemented its position as the best car to buy for the second time this year being billed as Scotland’s Car of the Year by the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers. The award follows the Discovery receiving Auto Express’s Car of the Year back in June.
Winning both the SUV category and the overall Car of the Year award, the Discovery was recognised for its blend of luxurious character and supreme on-road ability together with its class-leading off-road capabilities.
Collecting the award, Jeremy Hicks, Managing Director Jaguar Land Rover UK, said:
“This latest Scottish Car of the Year accolade from the ASMW completes a hat-trick for Land Rover in Scotland during the last 10 years, with the Discovery 4 winning in 2009 and the Range Rover Evoque in 2011. This is a hugely important market for Jaguar Land Rover, and we are very proud of it. I’m also delighted to announce that in recognition of this award and as a thank you to the Association, and the people of Scotland for their support of Land Rover over the years, we will be donating a Discovery to Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA) for six months to help them during the winter months.”
The Discovery HSE will support Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance ground operations for their life-saving charity. SCAA covers the entire country reaching 90% of the population within 25 minutes and since its launch in 2013 has responded to nearly 1600 time-critical emergencies.
