Skoda takes home towcar awards

Czech car manufacturer Skoda has received a number of honours at this year’s Towcar of the Year awards.

The firm gained recognition for several of its models at the prestigious award ceremony held at the RAC club, winning three out of seven possible categories.

The Octavia Scout won the awards for the £20,000 to £25,000 category and the all-wheel drive under 1,800 kg prize, while the Roomster Scout 1.9 TDI also took home the honours in the under £16,000 class.

"Costing from £14,070, the Roomster Scout 1.9 TDI will appeal to more than just the caravanning fraternity, however, thanks to an impressive 53.3mpg combined and zero to 62mph time of 11.5 seconds," Skoda said.

Now in its 25th year, the Towcar of the Year awards are organised by the Caravan Club which provides services for more than one million caravan and trailer owners.

Ford’s Mondeo Titanium X Estate was named the overall winner of the competition.
