Land Rover has proven to be the most successful manufacturer in the 2014 4x4 Magazine awards. It secured two class wins and the ultimate 4x4 of the Year title.
The new Range Rover Sport saw off competition from 24 of the market’s finest all-wheel drive models to take both the Premium class and the overall 2014 honour, while the Range Rover Evoque proved its mettle by claiming honours in the Top Range SUV class. The Land Rover Defender was “highly recommended” in the Hardcore class and the new Range Rover was second only to its Range Rover Sport sibling in the Premium category.
We all like to feel like a VIP and Volkswagen tells us that their customers in 2014 will get the full VIP treatment with a new finance package.
Brand ambassadors Bernard Brogan and Rosanna Davison were on hand to launch the VIP sales event which offers customers the option of upgrading to higher spec models for a very low cost on orders placed before December 20.
The Citroen C4 Picasso has been voted Continental Irish Car of the Year for 2014 by the members of the Irish Motoring Writers Association. The winner was revealed at an awards ceremony in Dublin last week, in front of an audience largely made up of motor industry representatives.
The Citroen C4 Picasso received 377 votes from the Irish Motoring Writers Association (IMWA) jurors, just ahead of the Volkswagen Golf (364 votes) and the Mazda6 (327 votes). It is the third time that Citroen has taken the overall Continental Irish Car of the Year title.
