LONDON – May 10, 2013: The Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Discovery have continued their winning ways in the annual Diesel Car, Car of the Year Awards.

Following on from being crowned Diesel Car Magazine’s Car of the Year in 2012, the Range Rover Evoque, which has been on sale since 2011 and has notched up over 130 awards worldwide, was voted best crossover for the second year in a row. Diesel Car Magazine’s Editor, Ian Robertson said: "We’re huge fans of the Evoque, a car that is equally at home up a rugged mountain track or outside the Ritz."

The Land Rover Discovery 4 also triumphed once again for the fourth year in succession to take top honours with the all-new Range Rover commended as the luxury finalist within the highly-competitive 4x4 category. Robertson added: “If the Discovery 4 is not the most all-round capable car in the world, we honestly don’t know what is.”

Land Rover’s UK Marketing Director, Laura Schwab commented: “We are delighted to receive these awards which are a testament to the unique combination of go anywhere ability, practicality and clever design that are intrinsic to Land Rover products.”

“The Range Rover Evoque has proved to be an instant hit attracting many new customers to the brand, while the Discovery 4 has long been the choice for customers who want a vehicle for all purposes.”

Diesel Car Magazine’s award winning writers put every single new car through its paces, in a stringent test programme, to decide upon the very best cars in ten different segments.

The Awards issue of Diesel Car magazine, including a long term test on the Diesel Car’s resident Evoque coupe eD4 Prestige, goes on sale online at www.dieselcaronline.co.uk and in all good newsagents on Friday 10th May 2013. It’s also available for the iPad via the Apple App Store on iTunes.
