Double Win for Land Rover at 2013 Fleet World Honours
Whitley, Tuesday 21st May 2013. Land Rover has scored a double win with the All-New Range Rover being awarded ‘Best Luxury Car’ and the Range Rover Evoque ‘Best Premium SUV’ in this year’s Fleet World Honours.
The Fleet World Honours are presented annually to those motor manufacturers, service companies and individuals who have, in the opinion of the judges, achieved the highest possible level of excellence in their sector.
Fleet World Editor, Steve Moody, said: “The brilliant new Range Rover is the answer to almost every question posed of a luxury car. It feels special, has presence, drives and rides well, has every comfort feature imaginable and is now considerably more economical than the last model. And it will drive through a pond if you need to.”
On the Evoque winning Best Premium SUV, Moody continued: “The Evoque is one of the genuine user-chooser favourites thanks to its distinctive design and the increasingly important Range Rover badge. Extremely strong residual values offset front end cost, and a luxurious cabin oozes quality and sophistication. Evoque has been a really successful addition to the Range Rover line-up, but the car is still uncommon enough to attract attention wherever it goes.”
The Fleet World Honours 2013 award for the Range Rover Evoque takes its awards tally to 131 since its introduction in late 2011.
Jon Wackett, JLR Corporate Sales General Manager, UK said: “We are delighted to receive these two awards. The all-new Range Rover is proving popular on fleets owing to its significantly improved CO2 figures as a result of its lightweight aluminium structure and efficient V6 and V8 diesels. Combined with unparalleled levels of luxury in a SUV and very strong residuals; it makes for the ultimate choice in luxury and capability.
“The Evoque, having been on the market for just under two years, continues to be a desirable fleet choice. With the option of two-wheel drive bringing emissions to under 130 g/km, striking design, a wide range of engines, choice of finishes, colour, trims and technology makes the Evoque the desirable choice.”
The all new Range Rover line-up starts from £71,295 for the 3.0 litre TDV6 Vogue rising to £98,395 for the 5.0 litre V8 Supercharged petrol Autobiography.
The Range Rover Evoque starts from £29,195 for the eD4 Pure six-speed manual two-wheel drive rising to £45,920 for the Si4 240 hp Dynamic Lux automatic four-wheel drive.
