The Chevrolet Orlando has been named Britain's Best Value towing car in the 2011 Towcar Awards.

A panel of testers from Practical Caravan, What Car? and the Camping and caravanning Club recognised the Chevrolet Orlando for towing stability, pulling power and all-round practicality. The car was also evaluated on owner appeal when not towing, including factors such as kerbside appeal, quality, comfort and running costs.

"You get a lot of car for your money with the Chevrolet Orlando," said Practical Caravan editor Nigel Donnelly. "It's very stable, has plenty of space for a family’s luggage and is sturdily built. It’s an impressively roomy and capable towcar."

Accepting the award, Chevrolet's National Sales Manager, Daniel Gregorious, said: "The Orlando already encapsulates everything the family motorist would want from a car, so to receive recognition for its towing ability, and from such prestigious publications and organisations, is a real bonus. It's yet another area in which the Orlando excels, not to mention its tremendous value for money."

The Chevrolet Orlando launched in February 2011 and is priced from £16,410 on the road. It provides a maximum towing weight of 1500kg, with an 85 per cent match between kerbweight and towing weight of 1,471kg, which equates to being able to tow most medium-to-large touring caravans.
