The UK-made Land Rover Discovery has been named the best towcar 2010 in the annual Towcar Awards, a coalition between experts from Practical Caravan, The Camping and Caravanning Club and What Car?.

“It’s not supposed to be easy choosing the best from 40-odd cars. This year, however, the discussion was a short one.  The Land Rover Discovery 4 is an exceptional car for towing.   The old model was one of our favourite towcars, but the new Discovery improves upon it in just about every area. You’ll be just as happy with the Discovery when you are not towing. It’s the best car in this year’s tests by some margin, and a more than worthy overall champion,” commented Nigel Donnelly, editor of Practical Caravan.

Practical Caravan, in association with The Camping and Caravanning Club and What Car?, hitched up 41 cars with caravans in their quest to find the best towing cars for 2010 to help holidaymakers make the right choice this year.

Matthew Eastlake, The Club’s Marketing & Communications Director, added: “This annual testing programme is led by three of the most experienced and qualified organisations in their respective fields, supported by the leading manufacturers.

“The aim is to provide campers and caravanners with the very best and latest information about leading vehicles suitable for towing.

“We believe that this helps our members to take informed decisions about high value purchases and hopefully they are able to enjoy safe, comfortable and enjoyable motoring as a result.”
