The Land Rover Discovery 3, one of the most decorated 4x4s ever, scooped yet another accolade today, having been voted the Best Used 4x4 by What Car? Magazine.

The award takes into account the price, performance, availability, desirability and reliability for the sector for which, the Discovery 3 came out on top, beating the two runners-up, the Nissan X-Trail and Kia Sorento.

"The Discovery's credentials are impeccable. Designed and built by the most famous 4x4 company in the world it's extremely capable in the rough, yet extremely comfortable on the road," said Matt Sanger, used car editor, What Car?.

"This award is yet another great achievement for the Discovery which continues to prove its versatility and widespread appeal if you are in the market for a used 4x4," added John Edwards, managing director, Land Rover UK.
