The Volkswagen Jetta Sport 2.0TDI DSG has been awarded the accolade of The Caravan Club Towcar of the Year 2013 for the second year in a row. It took the top honour in its class and went on to be voted overall winner of the 30th Caravan Club Towcar of the Year Competition, setting the record for the first car in the history of the competition to secure the accolade twice in consecutive years.
Well done VW. I love VWs which are reliable and smart rather than beefy and flamboyant. I was surprised to read that the Jetta had won for two years running though as I thought the competition was for new cars / models that year? I suppose it could mean that the one that won last year has been significantly altered again for this year?

It's all very well doing towing tests on tarmac but generally caravans for a good number of vanners site on fields and in this country that means wet! Excluding the hard standers. It would be interesting if they did a towing test on wet grass to determine the traction/grip of the vehicle. It's well documented rear wheel drive is generally better than front wheel drive and of course most important the driver and the tyre's!
