ALL-NEW LAND ROVER DISCOVERY CROWNED TOW CAR OF THE YEAR

The All-New Land Rover Discovery has continued its predecessor’s incredible Tow Car Awards winning streak, having been named as the overall winner for 2017. It is an accolade the previous Discovery had been awarded nine times over the previous ten years, culminating in it being chosen as Tow Car of the Decade in 2016.

The All-New Discovery also won the 1,900kg+ category after demonstrating its sheer breadth of capability, not only in terms of all-round towing capability but also its general practicality, including interior luggage space, accuracy of manufacturer towing advice in the vehicle handbook and overall buying and ownership costs. 

Speaking about the decision, David Motton, Tow Car Editor, Practical Caravan Magazine, said: “The fact that the new Land Rover Discovery is our overall champion will come as a surprise to nobody. Land Rover’s track record in these awards is second to none and today’s Discovery maintains the old model’s strengths while also attending to its weaknesses. As an all-rounder, it sets a new benchmark. The new Land Rover Discovery is now on sale and starts from £43,995 on the road.

“Towing with the Land Rover is now more straightforward than ever, thanks to clever technology such as the optional Advanced Tow Assist System, which makes reversing a caravan simple, even for less experienced drivers. We think it’s the best tow car you can buy.”

Jeremy Hicks, Jaguar Land Rover UK MD, said: “It’s great that the All-New Discovery has continued its predecessor’s legacy, a model which has proved itself as the car to beat in terms of towing capability since the Tow Car Awards started in 2007.
