Kia cee’d Sportswagon wins Practical Caravan’s Green Tow Car Award

The award-winning cee’d Sportswagon is on display and available to test drive at Jennings Kia, part of the Jennings Motor Group.

Practical Caravan has endorsed what many keen load-lugging drivers already know – the Kia cee’d Sportswagon 1.6 CRDI is the ‘greenest’ tow car on the market!

The ‘2’ version, available at Jennings Kia in Washington for £19,895 captured the Green Tow Car Award in the magazine’s annual, exhaustive testing competition.  The model was described by David Motton, Tow Car Editor as being “impressively economical to buy and run as well as being a respectable tow car.”

He went on to say; “If you want to tow a caravan without spending a fortune on fuel, look no further.  Towing a tourer weighing 85 per cent of its kerbweight the cee’d Sportswagon returned a commendable 31.6mpg – beating every other car we shortlisted.

“At the legal limit the Kia is a stable tow car and in an emergency lane-change, the cee’d Sportswagon performed well, always pulling the caravan straight again, even when it stepped out of line,” he added.

David Phillips, franchise manager at Jennings Kia in Washington, said; “This honour endorses everything our customers in Washington tell us – and the cee’d Sportswagon is very popular amongst the caravanning community.  They love the blend of economy, refinement and of course the industry-leading seven year warranty.  Anyone looking for a tow car in the local area is always welcome to come to our showroom and give the cee’d Sportswagon a test drive.”
