The fourth generation of the Range Rover recently won it first major award, as Top Gear Magazine honored the SUV as the Luxury Car of the Year.
According to Charlie Turner, editor-in-chief of Top Gear Magazine, the Range Rovers was the "stand-out machine in its category" and the "best of the best."
The award was given after being judged by Top Gear's auto journalists and the presenters of the Top Gear TV program. It gave consumers who were thinking about purchasing the vehicle an extra push toward secure auto financing with new car dealers to make sure they are sitting behind the wheel of the luxury SUV before spring.
"Rather than playing safe and developing, the new Range Rover is an example of boundaries redefined, manufacturing technologies pushed, luxury taken to the next level," said Turner. "From the daily slog to work to a cocooned blast across Europe, the Range Rover really can cope with anything. The ultimate car."
John Edwards, Land Rover global brand director, said that the company aimed to create the world finest luxury vehicle, providing consumers with excellence in its driving and handling performance, in addition to improved quality and comfort.
The automaker is also offering premium features that gives drivers a great luxury experience, which includes a high-end Meridian sound system, best-in class four-zone climate control system and redesigned seating with a multi-mode massage function.
Jaguar Land Rover sales down
Jaguar Land Rover recently revealed that sales in November were down 7 percent from a year ago, with Land Rover sales decreasing by 3 percent and Jaguar sales lowering by 22 percent.
"The all-new Range Rover and the all-wheel -rive Jaguar XJ and XF will be in showrooms this winter," said Andy Goss, president of the automaker, to USA Today. "While November proved to a challenging month due to current product run down and increasing competitor's incentive offerings, we anticipate improved sales performance once the new products arrive in showrooms."
The BMW 3 Series was also recently announced as Continental Tyres Irish Car of The Year 2013 award winter. The award is presented yearly by the Irish Motoring Writers Association.
