Volkswagen Golf takes top tow honours


Volkswagen has won the top prize at the 2010 Caravan Club Towcar of the Year Awards

The sixth-generation Golf, which went on sale in New Zealand in April, claimed the £16,000-£20,000 price category as well as the title of Caravan Club Towcar of the Year 2010.

The winning model, the Golf SE 2.0-litre TDI 140 PS, impressed the panel of 10 judges for its great performance when towing in a variety of situations and its practicality as a caravanning family car.

Held at the Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire, UK, the competition attracted 28 entrants.

The Škoda Superb 3.6 V6 won the All-Wheel Drive Vehicles Under 1800kg category in the awards, and the Kia Soul was victorious in the competitive under £16,000 category.

Other winners included the Land Rover Discovery 4, Mazda6 2.2D Estate and Volvo XC60.
