2013 Mazda6 Named Best Petrol Tow Car
The Mazda6 makes for a good towing car and has received the "Best Petrol Tow Car’ at the Tow Car Awards 2013, held at Woburn Abbey in Bedfordshire yesterday. The car that won the award was the Mazda6 Sports Saloon equipped with 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine producing 165 PS.
Why buy a 2.0-liter petrol engine with no turbo? Because it's cheaper to buy and more fun to drive, of course.
David Motton, Tow Car Editor at Practical Caravan and award judge, said: “If you need proof that diesel power isn’t a must for a tow car, the Mazda6 2.0-litre provides it. In the lane-change test the Mazda6 felt firmly in charge, even on faster runs. Inside, there’s plenty of space for those in the front and lots of legroom in the back. Our favourite petrol tow car is stable and good value.”
Jeremy Thomson, Managing Director, Mazda UK, commented: “This latest accolade is a fantastic addition to the Mazda6’s expanding haul of awards and just goes to show the different areas where this car excels. The award also highlights the affordability which the Mazda6 presents, particularly for families considering a car which has the appeal of everyday driving combined with the capability and practicality of towing a caravan during the holiday season.”
