HSV's flagship luxury and performance vehicle, the WM Grange, has captured the best luxury car award in the Automobile Association of New Zealand's annual motoring awards.

A record 89 vehicles were judged for this year's awards. The AA undertook the first round of judging using technical information to assess fuel consumption, safety, carbon emissions and other features. A second round of judging by a panel of expert judges took place last month, with vehicles being tested both on and off-road and using the Taupo Motorsport Park racetrack.

AA spokesperson Ms Stocks said of the WM Grange "the judges described the Grange, valued at $NZ97,990, as spacious, smart, well-appointed and the V8 engine delivers incredible power. It was also the best value for money in the Luxury Car class."

Fellow judge, Dave Moore said “this big Aussie is a credit to Holden Special Vehicles, and an embarrassment to German offerings costing twice as much.”

WM Grange is also available in Australia and priced from $82,990.
