The Volkswagen Touareg has once again enjoyed success at the Caravan and Motorhome Club’s annual Towcar of the Year Awards, triumphing in its category at the club’s prestigious event.
The Caravan and Motorhome Club tested the Touareg in 3.0-litre V6 TDI 286 PS R-Line Tech guise, equipped with the power folding tow bar as well as Volkswagen’s critically-acclaimed Trailer Assist system, which takes the stress out of reversing when hitched up.
Volkswagen’s luxury SUV won its award for the second year running, with the Touareg pulling home the award in the ‘Caravan Weight over 1,700 kg’ category – the heaviest category in contention. The judging panel praised the Touareg’s smooth and powerful diesel engine, labelling it “nothing short of outstanding”, while further applauding the SUV’s stability when towing.
Brian Luckie, Product Manager for the Touareg Volkswagen UK, said: “With another big win at the Caravan Club’s Towcar of the Year Awards, Volkswagen has proven once again that its hallmark quality ownership experience doesn’t just end at the rear bumper. The fact that the Touareg has won for the second year running demonstrates its huge list of strengths in an ever more competitive segment, and solidifies its reputation as a hugely capable all-rounder, as well as a class-leading towing choice.”
Other elements that impressed the judging panel were the boot that offers 810 litres of very usable space, the Volkswagen’s level attitude even when hitched, and the ease with which mirrors and electrics were attached.
