Pulling power of the Disco wins top accolade

The great all-rounder of the Land Rover marque scoops prize for the first time.

The Land Rover Discovery has been awarded the title of the Caravan Club’s Tow Car of the Year 2016 due to its immense pulling prowess.

The superb all-round 4x4 scooped the top honour for the first time as well as coming out on top in the 1,800kg and £50,000+ categories.

It beat off competition from over forty rivals in a series of tough examinations such as ease of hitching, steep hill starts and testing inclines.

Returning the impressive figures of 30-60mph in 11.2 and 40-60mph in just over eight seconds, all when hitched to a twin-axle caravan, the Discovery is hard to match up to.

What also set the Disco above the rest was its exceptional levels of standard kit, spacious practicality and excellent visibility; especially in HSE guise.

In its price range there is truly nothing that can hold a light to the all-round capability of the Discovery.
