Land Rover Discovery 4 declared 'Best Towcar 2010'

Posted by Greg Throughton

In news that may be of interest to those looking to revamp their caravan refrigeration, the Land Rover Discovery 4 has been declared the best towcar of 2010 at an annual awards ceremony.

The UK-made vehicle was honoured during the Towcar Awards, which is made up of a jury of experts from Practical Caravan, The Camping and Caravanning Club and What Car?.

Factors including towing ability, driving and handling, space and practicality, running costs and value were taken into consideration before the popular TDV6 model was awarded the gong.

David Motton, Practical Caravan's Towcar editor, commented: "The Land Rover Discovery 4 is an exceptional car. It's hard to say whether the 3.0-litre engine or the superb ride and handling deserve top billing."

The Kia Sedona and Volvo SE Geartronic were among 41 cars hitched with caravans as part of the exercise to find the best towing cars for 2010 to help holidaymakers make the right choice this year.

Dometic caravan fridges and Waeco caravan coolboxes are among refrigeration options for caravanners.
