The Škoda Superb 3.6 V6 260bhp 4×4 DSG has won the All-Wheel Drive Vehicles Under 1800kg category in the 2010 Towcar of the Year awards. This is the second year running that the Superb has been honoured, with the 2.0 TDI proving itself a capable towcar by taking top prize in the 2009 contest.
The Superb 4×4’s impressive traction, handling and luxurious cabin were praised by the judges, who said:
“The addition of all-wheel-drive makes the Superb an even more compelling towcar, with more traction and a significantly higher kerbweight extending the range of caravans it will comfortably tow.”
The Superb feels as solid as a rock, and it handles so well you can push it hard through twisty roads with real confidence. The Elegance version has a well turned out cabin and luxurious surroundings.”
Škoda UK Brand Director Robert Hazelwood said: “We are proud of Superb’s achievement in this rigorous competition and delighted that the new Superb has been recognised in these prestigious awards for a second year running. The Superb offers class-leading levels of space, comfort and equipment, and will be a popular towing vehicle in the towcar market.”
The competition took place over three intensive days of evaluation at the Millbrook Test Facility in Bedfordshire. Details of the Superb, along with all the entrants, will be distributed to the Caravan Club’s members in a special supplement.
The award was presented to Škoda UK at a presentation lunch held at the Royal Automobile Club in Pall Mall, London today.
