Range Rover voted car of the decade

Car enthusiasts have chosen the Range Rover as their Car of the Decade.

 

Users of autocar.co.uk selected the 4x4 from a list of 17 cars launched during the past 10 years put forward by the site - or were allowed to make their own choices.

Of more than 7,500 votes, some 18 per cent were for the Range Rover, a car launched in 2001.

“The Range Rover is a fine choice for Car of the Decade,” said Autocar editor Chas Hallett.

“Most polls like this have results skewed towards the latter end of their timescale, but not this one.

"That the Range Rover was launched nine years ago yet remains a benchmark speaks volumes for the brilliance of its design – and for the taste of the people who voted for it.”

The Range Rover saw off strong showings from the MkII Lotus Elise, which took second place with 12.5 per cent of the vote, and the Bugatti Veyron and Nissan GT-R, which each polled 8.8 percent of the total to finish joint third.
