Volkswagen Jetta voted best towcar

Posted by Greg Throughton

The Volkswagen Jetta Sport 2.0-litre TDI DSG has been given a huge accolade by owners of caravan devices and accessories.

Its practicality as a caravanning car and great towing performance won the car the top honour in its class and it then went on to win the twenty-ninth Caravan Club Towcar of the Year Competition.

Judged by a panel of 11 judges, the car was considered to be suave, sleek and stylish, beating Skoda Superb Estate Elegance 2.0-litre DSG, the Volkswagen Touareg Escape 3.0-litre V6 TDI and the Volvo V60 D5 AWD Volvo Ocean Race for the prize.

"The Club extends its congratulations to all the winners in this Competition. Special plaudits go to the terrific Volkswagen Jetta, it really is a great vehicle and it proved itself time and time again with the judges during testing," said Grenville Chamberlain, Caravan Club chairman.

Martin Spencer, technical manager for the Caravan Club, also recently warned that it is more experienced caravanners that often make mistakes like over-loading and driving too fast.
