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.”
