The 2010 Overlander Awards Best of the Best category has been taken out by Land Rover Discovery 4, for the third year in a row. The rest of the 2010 Award winners will be announced in the September issue, on sale this week.
The Overlander 4WD Awards considers all 4WD vehicles available on the market– no matter how long ago they were released. This provides a broad market review across the full spectrum of 4WD vehicles available at the point in time of judging, not just new vehicles released.
"While all the 4WDs tested for the awards this year were of the highest quality, several contenders really stood out and there was very little between them in the overall assessment," Overlander editor Trent Nikolic says.
