The all-new 2013 Range Rover has notched up as many as 10 international awards in just three months since the commencement of its production.
The 2013 Ranger Rover is the world’s first SUV with a lightweight all-aluminium body and the new Range Rover has high levels of refinement, performance and comfort.
The most recent honour comes from the AUTOBEST group of motoring journos, crowning the new car with the title of ‘TECHNOBEST 2012’. Other awards that have come to the new Range Rover include ‘Dream Machine’ from Autoweek, ‘Luxury Car of the Year’ from both What Car? and Top Gear magazines and ‘Best Cars – Import Category’ from Auto Motor und Sport. The model was also crowned ‘4×4 Category Winner’ in The Sunday Times’ Top 100 Cars 2012, among others.
Land Rover Global Brand Director, John Edwards, said: “We are proud of the recognition the Range Rover is receiving from international motoring organisations and publications. It is a fantastic achievement and a great endorsement for the model, which has only been in production for three months.
“Its revolutionary lightweight construction is the result of unprecedented investment in technology and engineering which makes it the most refined, most capable Range Rover ever. It is enormously satisfying to see that international judges, as well as customers, are recognising this too.”
The all-new Range Rover was launched last October and is the world’s first aluminium monocoque SUV. The new monocoque makes the car 420kg lighter than the outgoing model and results into significant improvements in performance and efficiency. The Range Rover is built at Land Rover’s new low-energy Solihull facility.
