The Volkswagen Passat Estate has been named ‘Top Towcar of the Year 2011’ in a poll of caravan enthusiasts. Chris Jefferies, Editor of CaravanTimes.co.uk, said ‘among our forum members, Volkswagen is renowned as a reliable, practical and economical choice. The Passat Estate beat off strong competition this year and we expect to see plenty of them at campsites across the UK in 2012.’
If you are a high mileage driver the Volkswagen Passat BlueMotion is extremely fuel efficient. It has many highlights such as Bluetooth connectivity for the telephone unit, a superior quality stereo, an electronic handbrake and a 2Zone Climatronic air conditioning system. Inside the Volkswagen Passat BlueMotion it is smart and functional; the boot isn’t as big as some rivals but enough to cope with the demands of most families. The seats fold flat easily to give plenty of extended loadbay.
In June 2011, the Passat Estate TDI 170 PS was also named champion at the Towcar Awards, which are judged by experts from What Car? and Practical Caravan magazines as well as The Camping and Caravanning Club.
