BMW Voted 'Overall Winner' in the Tow Car Awards 2018

After facing a gruelling set of tests, the BMW 520d xDrive Touring was voted as the best 'overall winner' in the Tow Car Awards 2018, the first time that BMW has won that award. The model beat some tough competition in the 1700-1899kg weight class as voted on by experts from What Car? and Practical Caravan magazines and The Camping and Caravanning Club. 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 delighted that it is now recognised as the perfect car for towing a caravan or trailer and for the driver who wants it all." And, David Motton, tow car editor for Practical Caravan Magazine, added: "When it comes to pulling a caravan confidently and securely, the BMW 5 Series has few peers."
