ŠKODA goes haul the way at the Tow Car Awards 2016
Superb beats off stiff competition to bag prestigious award
The multi-award-winning Superb has been named Overall Winner at the Tow Car Awards 2016 by a panel of experts from The Camping and Caravanning Club, Practical Caravan, and What Car?.
The ŠKODA Superb Hatch 2.0 TDI 150PS SE Business was declared best in class in the ‘1400-1549kg’ weight division, posting sufficiently high scores to bag the coveted Overall Winner award. All 41 shortlisted cars were put through a gruelling test regime including emergency lane changes, low speed slalom runs, incline tests and emergency brake tests.
All cars were tested solo to judge ride quality, handling and refinement, and were also assessed for running costs, value, standard safety equipment and resale value.
Commenting on the Superb’s performance, David Motton, Tow Car Editor of Practical Caravan magazine, said: “The ŠKODA Superb is spacious, great value, and brilliant to tow with. We'd happily pull a tourer or trailer from one end of the country to the other with the Superb, such is its stability, performance and comfort. A worthy overall winner for 2016.”
ŠKODA is no stranger to the Tow Car Awards. The current Octavia was named Overall Winner in 2013, and won its class (up to 1,400kg) in 2013, 2014 and 2015.
The Superb range has a braked towing capacity of up to 2,200kg and is available with a wide range of towing options and accessories. These include an integrated tow bar that can be released via a lever in the boot and folded away after use. The Superb also has one of the biggest and most practical boots in the sector; the Hatch delivers 625 litres of space with the rear seats in position and the Estate 660 litres.
