The LR3 outpaced the 4×4 Off-Roader category for the second year running, beating off tougher competitors within its line.
At the 2006 New Car Honor, the LR3 defeated renowned rivals like Audi Q7 and Volvo XC90. With a highly acclaimed TDV6 2.7 litre diesel engine, a spacious seven-seat layout and plentiful storage, the LR3 is an agile and practical SUV offering impeccable on-road performance whilst its all-terrain technology such as Terrain Response™, Hill Descent Control and Electronic Traction Control makes it an unbeatable off-roader too.
“Land Rover has proved its versatility and all- terrain power in an increasingly competitive sector, and with its 77th award, the Land Rover – LR3 has received acclaim as the most competent car from experts around the world,” said Mr. Zayed Al Zayani, Euro Motors Managing Director.
The LR3 introduces sophisticated new technologies, among them Land Rover’s patented Terrain Response system, that optimizes drivability and comfort. The driver simply chooses one of five terrain settings with the flick of a switch on the centre console: a general driving program, plus one for slippery conditions (grass/gravel/snow) and three special off-road modes (mud/ruts, sand, rock crawl).
Terrain Response then automatically selects the appropriate settings for the vehicle’s advanced electronic controls and traction aids.
“The LR3 comes from the distinctive British lineage of Land Rover, and is a fierce competitor in the SUV market.
‘It is the most technologically advanced Land Rover ever built and has successfully taken the international motoring world by storm. Champion for the second year in a row, the LR3 never failed to impress us with its unmatched range of abilities that has set it apart from other cars in its class,’ Mr. Zayani further added.
Land Rover’s strategy ensures that all Land Rover models are sophisticated, premium, technologically advanced and suitable for all driving terrains. The exterior design is a reflection of those interior priorities, with clean geometric lines that are minimalist, modern and similar to the flagship Range Rover model.
Euro Motors, part of Al Zayani Investment Group are fully committed to demonstrating to the Bahrain market what is being recognized elsewhere. Land Rover, being an elite top-quality car, is the ideal choice for exquisite driving pleasure world wide.
