Jaguar XF named Towcar of the Year 2012

Article by Christian Andrei, on June 15, 2012

At the annual Towcar Awards, the overall winner for 2012 was the Jaguar XF. Practical Caravan runs this event, in cooperation with The Camping and Caravanning Club and What Car?. It is considered to be the hardest test of towcar capability in Britain. Jaguar has been on a winning streak. It recently was given awards during the 2012 What Car? / JD Power car customer satisfaction survey.

Jaguar was named top car manufacturer while the XF was recognized as the best executive car. In addition, Volkswagen got four other awards. For the up to 1424kg category, the Golf got the win. The Passat Estate was named for the 1425-1574kg category while the Tiguan won for the 1575-1724kg category.

The ‘Green Award’ was given to the Passat. The Land Rover Discovery again won for the 1900kg+ category. Already in its sixth year, the Towcar Awards 2012 got 34 of the newest models and attached them to caravans in their goal to determine which the best ones are. The cars had to be tested for their practicality. Dynamic stability assessments were also conducted. The Towcar Awards are very credible and buyers consider them to be definitive conclusions of what products to trust.

What Car? also provides real-life buying and owning information. According to Nigel Donnelly of Practical Caravan, the judging this year was challenging. He also emphasized that Volkswagen and Land Rover produced very deserving category winners. But what the judges were all in agreement of is how special the Jaguar XF is. It’s undeniably an excellent car whether it’s used for towing or when it’s working solo. During towing, it has a stability that can’t be rocked. It almost seems as if it’s not hooked to a caravan.
