RANGE ROVER EVOQUE TAKES 4X4 TOP HONOURS IN PARKERS COST OF MOTORING NEW CAR AWARDS 2012
Whitley, 3 April 2012. The Range Rover Evoque 2.2 TD4 Pure has beaten off stiff competition to take top honours in the 4×4 category of Parkers Cost of Motoring New Car Awards 2012.
The Parkers Cost of Motoring New Car Awards are based on figures collated by Parkers’ Cost of Motoring tool, which calculates the true “hidden costs” associated with owning and running a new car, the calculation includes fuel consumption, depreciation, servicing and road tax.
The coveted honour takes the Range Rover Evoque’s tally to just shy of 100 awards globally in the short seven months it has been on sale.
Commenting on the award, Land Rover’s UK Marketing Director, Laura Schwab said: “We know our customers take the cost of ownership into serious consideration when deciding on their new car.
“This award is further endorsement of the Evoque’s balance of luxury, on road dynamics, off road capability and class leading residual values which is a large contributing factor to the car’s success.”
Kieren Puffett, Editor of Parkers added: “The Range Rover Evoque has striking looks that make it stand out of the crowd, and now it can claim to be the best value 4×4 too. With the Evoque claiming three of the price brackets in the 4×4 category for being top for value, it was an incredibly easy decision to award the Range Rover Evoque 2.2 TD4 Pure as winner of the Parkers’ Cost of Motoring New Car Awards 2012 in the 4×4 Category.
“Key to its strong performance was not only its strong residuals so it really holds on to its value, but also the frugal nature of the 2.2-litre diesel and its low running costs.”
The Range Rover Evoque starts from £27,995 on the road.
