IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 25, 2006 -- Land Rover was honored by R. L. Polk & Co. during its tenth annual Polk Automotive Loyalty Awards ceremony at the 2006 Automotive News World Congress in Dearborn, MI. Range Rover won in the Prestige SUV category. This marks the second consecutive year the model has been honored.

"We are thrilled that our customers continue to embrace the Range Rover," commented Ben Weiner, Customer Satisfaction Manager for Land Rover North America. "Winning this award again signifies that our customers appreciate this extraordinary vehicle and the unique experience that only comes with owning a Range Rover."

The Polk Automotive Loyalty Awards recognize manufacturers for superior owner loyalty performance. Loyalty is determined when a household that owns a new vehicle returns to purchase or lease another new vehicle of the same model or make.
