Jaguar Land Rover lands quadruple victory
Jaguar Land Rover has won four categories at the Auto Express Awards 2019, including two victories for the all-new Range Rover Evoque.
Introduced only this year, the all-new Range Rover Evoque has already been named GQ’s Compact SUV of the Year. Now, the Evoque can add another two major titles to its roster, following this year’s Auto Express Awards. The expert team of journalists named the Evoque their ‘Small Premium SUV of the Year’, and highlighted ClearSight Ground View in their Technology Award. The realisation of Land Rover’s 2014 ‘invisible bonnet’ concept, ClearSight Ground View uses cameras to project a 180-degree view of what’s ahead of the occupants, including underneath the car’s bonnet.
Steve Fowler, Editor-in-Chief of Auto Express, said: “The new Range Rover Evoque has plenty of substance to back up its style. Its exterior might not be a revolutionary change, but the interior has been overhauled and it’s now the most interesting, high-quality, luxurious and tech-filled car in its class.”
The Auto Express team also named the Discovery as its ‘Large SUV of the Year’ 2019. Having been crowned overall Auto Express ‘Car of the Year’ in 2017, and ‘Large SUV of the Year’ in 2018, the latest Discovery has won an Auto Express Award every year since it was introduced.
Rawdon Glover, Jaguar Land Rover UK Managing Director, said: “These latest Auto Express Awards really speak to the depth and talent of the Jaguar Land Rover team and model line-up. With two awards for Evoque – introduced this year – and another for Discovery – introduced in 2016 – it’s a clear indication that not only are our products class-leading, but they remain class-leading throughout their lives.”
