The Land Rover Discovery, or as we know it in the US, the LR4, has been declared “Tow Car of the Year” by the UK’s “Caravan Club.” Discovery bested 43 other models to win the honor, completing a series of grueling tests that included towing up a steep incline, a hill start and demonstrating the ease with which it can be maneuvered to hitched up to the trailer.
The seven judges tasked with testing the cars praised the Land Rover for its TowAssist guidance system.
Grenville Chamberlain, Caravan Club chairman, said: "On behalf of the Caravan Club, a special mention must go to Land Rover for its triumphant Discovery."
Jeremy Hicks, managing director of Jaguar Land Rover UK, said: "2015 is proving to be another fantastic year for Discovery. It has been at the top of the judge's lists of capable towing vehicles consistently for the last nine years. "
LR4’s Tow Assist feature uses the vehicle’s sensors, reversing cameras and navigation screen, to help with backing a trailer and with lining up a hitch. The Trailer Stability Assist feature is served by the suspension and braking systems through the Terrain response module, to provide inputs to the drivetrain in order to correct any sway induced by the trailer.
