Land Rover Discovery
Winning at least one award in 11 years out of 12 at The Tow Car Awards is an achievement that only a seriously impressive and powerful vehicle can achieve. The Land Rover Discovery has had incredible success in various awards, but no more than in The Tow Car Awards, “Britain’s biggest and best tow car test programme.”
The Discovery can tow 3,500kg worth of goods, making it one of the best for towing a caravan. This model is tremendously stable in strong winds and is equipped with an innovative interior that includes Land Rover’s Ingenious infotainment system and 1,137 litres of space. It’s no wonder the iconic British automakers describe it as both “our most versatile SUV yet” and the “ultimate family SUV”.
Winner of the 2018 Caravan Club Towcar of the Year, the Skoda Kodiaq SUV has had a very successful year.
Thanks to its kerbweight, 2.0 litre 190bhp turbo-diesel engine, four-wheel drive and relaxing, stable and dependable nature, the Kodiaq also came out on top in its price class and the ‘All Wheel Drive under 1,800kg’ category of the awards, which are decided by caravan journalists, national motoring journalists and technicians.

Peugeot 5008 2.0 BlueHDi GT EAT8
With its petrol equivalent winning What Car?’s 2018 Large SUV of the Year, big things were expected for the diesel Peugeot 5008 2.0 BlueHDi GT EAT. It’s safe to say the vehicle lived up to its expectations, winning the 1550-1699kg category in WhatCar’s awards and The Tow Car Awards.
The 5008 is a stylish, highly capable seven-seater that deserves all the praise it receives.
Need something that packs more of a punch? How about the best pickup for towing according to Auto Express? The Volkswagen Amarok impressed judges with its stability when towing its maximum weight of 3,100kg.
