THE Honda HR-V has triumphed at the 2016 Tow Car Awards, with the 1.6 i-DTEC SE manual taking the class winner in the “up to 1,400kg” weight class.
Organised and judged by experts from Practical Caravan, What Car? and The Camping and Caravanning Club, a total of 41 cars were entered into the 10th Tow Car Awards and more than 440 cars have been tested since the awards were launched in 2006.
The HR-V is the latest incarnation of Honda’s popular crossover launched last summer after a long hiatus and is already proving popular with Honda’s retail network, which is unable to keep up with demand.
Originally launched in 1999, the first generation of the HR-V was an early pioneer of the small crossover segment.
Priced at £22,440, the 1.6 i-DTEC SE manual has a kerbweight of 1,399kg, a maximum towing weight of 1,400kg and a towball limit of 70kg.
