Derek Slack Motors, main dealers for Skoda in the North East are delighted to announce the Škoda Superb Estate is the Caravan Club’s Towcar of the Year 2011.
The Elegance 2.0 TDI CR model took top honor in its price category and went on to be voted overall winner of the competition. The Skoda Fabia also won the top award in the under £16,000 category.
A panel of 10 judges praised the Superb for its great performance when towing in a variety of situations and for its practicality as a caravanning family car.
After accepting the honor last night at the Royal Automobile Club in London, Škoda UK’s Head of Aftersales John Bower said: “Since it launched earlier this year, the Škoda Superb Estate has proven to be an extremely popular choice for drivers looking for luxury and style combined with practicality and spaciousness.
“Caravanners tend to make very educated and informed purchases and have extremely high standards when it comes to their cars, so receiving an award from the caravan industry experts is not only an excellent achievement but a real testament to the quality of the model.”
This is the third time the Škoda Superb has been named Towcar of the Year, with the first-generation saloon winning in 2003 and the new-generation twin-door model taking the top honour in 2009.
Full details about this year’s awards are on the Caravan Club website.
