[12 APR 99] ROVER GROUP PRESS RELEASE
Land Rover Discovery Freelander Wins Fleet Award

The Land Rover Freelander has been voted "Best 4x4" in the influential Fleet News 1999 Awards. The all new, recently launched Discovery, was also Highly Commended.

Freelander Wins 1999 News Fleet AwardLaunched just over a year ago, Freelander three-door and five-door models have successfully provided drivers with car-like handling and performance while also offering genuine off-road 4x4 styling and capability. Freelander is particularly popular with female drivers/owners.

The new Discovery was launched at the beginning of this year and features leading-edge technology such as Active Cornering Enhancement, four-wheel Electronic Traction Control, Electronic Brake Distribution and rear Air Suspension.

The awards were presented to Rover Group corporate sales director Steve Harris. He said:

"I am delighted that the Freelander and Discovery have deservedly received such prestigious accolades.

"Both vehicle ranges are increasingly popular with company car drivers, who want something different but are not prepared to compromise in terms of equipment and driving characteristics."

Both vehicles will be on display at the Fleet Motor Show (trade only) at the NEC, Birmingham, 26-28 April.
