Big accolades for new Land Rover Discovery

Recently launched new Disco is Scottish COTY

It’s been met with generally very positive critical acclaim in Australia, now the new-gen Land Rover Discovery also comes with the recognition of being Scotland’s Car of the Year.

Judged by the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers (ASMW), the Land Rover offering also recently took home the Auto Express Car of the Year (details on that award victory here).

Winning both the SUV category and overall Car of the Year award, Stephen Park, President of the ASMW, tells us the new Disco is hard to top.

“Nowhere in Great Britain are SUVs more relevant than in Scotland. Our rural terrain and harsh winters make four-wheel-drive ownership essential for many.

“There are a number of choices available that can deliver both luxury and off-road capabilities, but the Discovery goes notably further in both areas.

“This is a 4×4 which remains true to Land Rover’s spirit of adventure – it really can climb mountains and ford streams – yet does all this while also being brilliant around town, on country roads and motorways.

“A practical seven-seater that is luxurious and all-capable – the Discovery is the complete package.”
