Land Rover Discovery’s Tow Car Awards victory

Land Rover Discovery crowned top tow car

The all-new Land Rover Discovery has been crowned overall winner at the 2017 Tow Car Awards.

It is an accolade the previous generation Discovery won nine times, culminating in it being chosen as Tow Car of the Decade in 2016.

This year’s winners range in size (and price) from the Discovery to the more humble Hyundai i30 hatchback, with a mix of hybrids, MPVs, estates and 4×4 models in between.
