The Skoda Superb 2.0 TDI has won the overall title in The Caravan Club Towcar of the Year Awards 2009. The car, which also won the £20,000 to £25,000 class, beat 37 rivals to the title, including the defending champion, the Ford Mondeo Titanium X 2.5 T Estate.

The Superb’s classic design, load-carrying capability, practicality and outstanding value for money were all praised by the judges, who said: “Superb buyers will get a stylish, modern and practical car with great fit and finish. One of its best features is the rear load compartment. The ‘caravanability’ judges found it would take a full load of caravanning equipment, and loved the Skoda’s unique rear tailgate design that can be opened as a conventional saloon boot or hatchback.

“The Superb is what you’d call a thoroughly nice car. There is acres of room for everyone, comfortable seats and the driver is rewarded by a powerful but quiet engine and one of the slickest six-speed gearboxes around. Our guess is that it will become one of the all-time caravanning favourites.”

Grenville Chamberlain, Caravan Club Chairman, commented: “Skoda should be proud of its achievement in this rigorous competition and the Superb 2.0 TDI is sure to be a popular towing vehicle with our members.” Details of the Superb, along with all the entrants, will be distributed to the Caravan Club’s members in a special supplement.

Skoda UK Brand Director Robert Hazelwood said: “We are very proud to have won this prestigious award. The Superb offers class-leading levels of space, comfort and equipment, and is sure to be a winner in the towcar market.”
