Range Rover Evoque is Diesel Car of the Year image

The Range Rover Evoque has been recently named the 2012 Diesel Car of the Year by the British Diesel Car Magazine.

After it was named the 2012 Women’s Car of the Year a few months ago, the Range Rover Evoque is once again placed into the spotlights, this time by the British Diesel Car Magazine, who has awarded the mid-size crossover with the 2012 Diesel Car of the Year. The new achievement for Land Rover has come after 1,000,000 units of the Discovery have been produced and the milestone model was driven for 10,000 in just 50 days.

“Already an icon, the Evoque combines stunning design and brilliant engineering to great effect. While Evoque claimed the ultimate prize, the Land Rover Discovery 4 demonstrated the diverse capability of Land Rover design and engineering by taking the ‘Best 4×4 Award’ for the third successive year. No challenger has yet to do better than the Land Rover, which has occupied the top spot ever since it was launched, and is described by the magazine as ‘everything you could possibly want in a car’”, said Ian Robertson, Diesel Car editor.

As a quick reminder, the Range Rover Evoque has been in production since 2011 and the model is currently being assembled in Halewood, England. The Range Rover Evoque is available as a three- or five-door version, coming with a choice of two engines and two transmissions.
