BMW takes top honours at the Tow Car Awards 2018

BMW has taken the ‘overall winner’ title for the first time in the Tow Car Awards 2018. The BMW 520d xDrive Touring was voted as the clear winner by experts from What Car? and Practical Caravan magazines and The Camping and Caravanning Club.

After facing a gruelling set of tests, the BMW 520d xDrive Touring was voted as the best overall car for towing and beat some tough competition in the 1700-1899kg weight class. It was also assessed for value for money, ride comfort, running costs, refinement and passenger space along with practicality for carrying camping or holiday luggage.

Chris Brownridge, BMW Group UK Sales Director, said: “To be awarded as overall winner of Britain’s biggest and best tow car test programme is a real honour. We are hugely grateful to all the judges from Practical Caravan, What Car?, and the Camping and Caravanning Club for putting the BMW 5 Series Touring ahead of the hundreds of cars they tested this year. We are delighted that it is now recognsed as the perfect car for towing a caravan or trailer and for the driver who wants it all.”

David Motton, tow car editor for Practical Caravan Magazine, described the BMW as a “clear winner” and went on to say: “When it comes to pulling a caravan confidently and securely, the BMW 5 Series has few peers. There wasn’t a single one of towing tests in which the BMW showed any sign of weakness.”

Don't just take our word for it

Here's just some of the great reviews we've received on Facebook and Google in the last 6 months.

By Far the best BMW center I've been too! Customers Service was spot on and buying my new car from them was a first class experience. Even though i live 2.5 hours from them i will be making the trip to them for servicing etc for my car. Amber, Jessica and Ryan that i dealt with were all fantastic and hope this all continues.

Great service from the start of my car purchase to collection and beyond from Mike at Listers BMW Boston. Kept me updated and answered every question and query I had. Says it all when I have used a dealer 200miles away from where I live due to the service! Highly recommended.

Big thanks to Adam and the team for finding another Beemer after I’d been dithering over wether to have the original show room option.... within a few days a higher spec option was offered and yes I took the bait 😉😀 Smooth handover on Thursday .. thanks gents...See you in the Premier League 😉

Excellent service as always

Nothing is too much trouble! From my first call to Listers Kings Lynn to the delivery to my home in Oxford today of the car I purchased from them, that's how it was - nothing was too much trouble.

Service and staff are excellent

I don't think I know of a better car dealers than Listers BMW they all couldn't have been any more helpful, made the journey of getting a car very easy. I will certainly send any one one there who needs a car. Fantastic car Fantastic people thank you especially to Adam your a star.

Our experience of Listers BMW Kings Lynn was excellent. We found all the staff with whom we came into contact were welcoming, pleasant and professional in the way they treated customers.

I live in London and have always bought my BMWs there. I recently bought an X3 from Kings Lynn and dealt with Harry Tilburn and was externally happy with the service.

Superb customer service from Listers this past week. A special thanks to Harry for all of his help and support. In love with our new car.
