The Best 4 x 4 In NZ For 2010
New Zealand 4WD magazine’s 4WD of the Year award has gone to the Land Rover Discovery, due to its all round abilities. In NZ, it comes with either a 3 litre turbo diesel V6 engine or five litre V8 petrol motor, both connected to a six speed automatic.
NZ 4WD editor, John Oxley said it was “a vehicle that we could shop with, take the kids to school in, tow with and even go to the theatre in. But most of all it had to be able to take us to the most extreme parts of New Zealand and in as comfortable a manner as possible.” Mr Oxley said the Discovery 4 combined all the attributes the magazine was looking for. “It’s stylish, comfy, has a great engine and gearbox, superb 4WD system and enough ground clearance to drive a bus under when the air suspension is all wound up.”
I think it is a deserved award as the LR Discovery 4 is simply better than its competitors due to its all round abilities. It also looks fabulous too as a bonus.
What it means to me. The LR4 (Discovery) is an outstanding vehicle with broad talents.
