The Skoda Superb Estate has been crowned Tow Car of the Year by the Caravan Club, beating off competition from 40 other entrants including Range Rover and Jaguar.
Commenting on the Superb’s ability, judges remarked: “With a loading limit of 100kg on the roof, 80kg on the towball and a boot that scored maximum marks, it’s a very tough act to follow. You wouldn’t know you were towing a caravan.”
Skoda also won the £16,000-£20,000 category with the new Octavia 1.2 TSI, which was praised for its pulling power with such a small engine.
Announcing the award winners, Grenville Chamberlain, Caravan Club chairman, added: “The Club extends its congratulations to all the winners in this competition. Special acclaim goes to the terrific Skoda Superb, which demonstrated that it was just about as good as it gets.”
