6th winning year at the Tow Car Awards

The OCTAVIA has continued its remarkable winning streak at the annual Tow Car Awards by retaining its class title for an unprecedented sixth time.

Judges has named the OCTAVIA its number one choice every year since 2014 – a Tow Car Awards record.

This year, 40 shortlisted cars were assessed in four categories; towing, everyday driving, practicality and ownership. Towing tests included hill starts, emergency lane changes and stability assessments with a ballasted caravan attached.

Despite a host of new challengers over the years, the OCTAVIA has proved to be the perfect all-rounder for owners looking to tow and 2019 marks the first time a petrol-powered version has been named as the winner. The 1.5 TSI 150PS DSG drivetrain was highlighted as the model of choice in the ‘up to 1,400kg’ category.
