Gaydon, Warwickshire - February 14, 2006 – The Land Rover Discovery 3 has been crowned the AXA Car of the Year 2006 in Northern Ireland. The title was awarded by the Ulster Motoring Writers Association (UMWA) who chose the Discovery 3 as the winner of the AXA Leisure Car category before being crowned the AXA Car of the Year 2006, beating tough competition from Lexus, Audi and Toyota. Chairman of the Ulster Motoring Writers’ Association, Jim McCauley, said: “Of all the vehicles judged in this year's competition the Discovery 3 scored consistently high. It scooped almost twice the number of points of its nearest rival which really sets it apart in its class. As well as its on-and-off-road capability, it offers a quality driving experience and is an outstanding testament to the UK motor industry.”

Land Rover's UK managing director John Edwards added: "We are incredibly proud that the Discovery 3 has won The AXA Car of the Year 2006. Since its launch in 2004 the Discovery 3 has won 70 awards around the world. This is a remarkable achievement and proves the strong appeal of a vehicle that demonstrates a true breadth of capability."
