Land Rover Wins Double At The Sunday Times Motor Awards
In July 2018, The Sunday Times invited readers to vote for their favourite cars. It's been confrmed that they had nearly 200,000 entries across 10 categories; from doing the school run or daily commute, being frugal on fuel, zipping round a circuit on a track date, off-roading or even transporting your pet. The paper also added a special category for the best car technology and Jeremy Clarkson was asked to chooe his car of the year too!
We are thrilled to announce that Land Rover won 2 awards in The Sunday Times Motor Awards 2018!
The Sunday Times "Dog Friendly Car of the Year": Land Rover Discovery
"The days of dogs living outdoors and being thrown scraps are long gone. Now they demand tailor-made beds, organic food and monthly sessions at the grooming parlour. And they won't ride in any old car, either. Dogs need room, and the Discovery's boot has an impressive 1,137 litres, enough for his'n'hers cages. That's not all: it comes with optional "Pet Packs". The top one includes a partition, a quilted boot liner, a ramp to help smaller or older dogs get in and out, a spill-resistant bowl and - yes indeed - a portable shower." - The Sunday Times.
The Sunday Times "SUV/Crossover of the Year": Land Rover Range Rover Velar
"Land Rover jostles for space in an area of the car market that has become increasingly crowded. Every car maker wants to sell drivers a sport utility vehicle. It's the most popular type of car in Europe, and demand in Amerca and China is growing strongly.
As well as a high seating position, owners increasingly want good looks and road-hugging handling - hence the Velar. It's not the first SUV to get the coupe treatment, but most drivers will agree it is the most handsome and the one they'd most like to park at home.
Inside, it could have been designed by Apple, with clean, uninterrupted lines and a dashboard resembling a giant touchpad.
That's all very nice, but more importantly the Velar sacrifices none of the off-road ability you get in a full-blooded Land Rover." - The Sunday Times.
