The Premium, Adventure-Oriented SUV Showcases An Elite Selection Of Accessories For Athletes At The 2006 San Diego Auto Show

SAN DIEGO, Calif., Dec 28, 2005 – Land Rover North America is pleased to announce that the LR3 has been recognized as an Active Lifestyles Vehicle winner for the second year in a row. Lauded for its extreme capabilities and versatilities, LR3 topped a myriad of vehicle finalists to win the Active Lifestyle Vehicle Award in the Luxury Vehicle category.

Presented by Active.com and Gen-A Network, Active Lifestyles Awards are positioned so that consumers can choose a vehicle that perfectly fits their athletic needs. Active Lifestyle awards are granted each year, and are divided between two categories: Best Value and Luxury Vehicles. LR3 has been honored in the luxury off-road vehicle category for 2006. An official award ceremony took place today to showcase the winners during the 2006 San Diego Auto Show.

“Land Rover inspires and encourages adventure so winning the Active Lifestyles award for two years consecutively is a top honor,” said Sally Eastwood, marketing vice president for Land Rover North America. “The superior credentials of the LR3, combined with a wide array of optional athletic accessories provide the ultimate fantasy vehicle for athletic enthusiasts.”

A panel of journalists and athletic enthusiasts, including marathon runners, mountain bikers, surfers, and triathletes evaluated a full range of vehicles over a mixture of terrains earlier this year. Vehicle driving performance and active lifestyle features were heavily evaluated throughout the testing program.

Driving performance tests included a 30-minute course, featuring a mix of freeway driving, hills, speed bumps and curves. Plenty of cargo space, roof racks, bike transport systems, towing capabilities and other active lifestyle features were considered necessary criteria while testing each vehicle.

Its articles like this that test my patience for wanting to walk into the dealer and buy an LR3 or RRS already! If the Defender's future wasn't so blurry for North America, I would already own either one of those two models OR begin the restoration and modifications on a 97 D90.
