On the pull again: VW scoops towing award
The Volkswagen Passat estate has been named as the Top Towcar of the Year 2011 in a poll of caravan enthusiasts.
This brings to three the number of overall Towcar of the Year awards claimed by the manufacturer last year.
In Volkswagen's latest towing triumph, readers of Caravan Times, the UK's largest online caravan magazine, were asked to choose between five top towcars and the Passat estate came out on top.
In June 2011, the Passat estate TDI 170 PS was also named champion at the Towcar Awards, which are judged by experts from What Car? and Practical Caravan magazines as well as The Camping and Caravanning Club. The same car also won its weight category, while the Golf claimed a class win.
In September, the Jetta triumphed at the Caravan Club Towcar of the Year Awards 2012, winning its price category and the Overall Towcar of the Year title. The Touareg also claimed two accolades.
