Mercedes-Benz M-Class wins at the 2012 Towcar of the Year awards

The Mercedes-Benz ML 350 BlueTEC Sport has triumphed in the 2013 Towcar of the Year Awards, winning its category.

The vehicle, which won its class for Vehicle Excise Duty bands J, K, L and M, was subjected to mid-range 30-60 mph acceleration assessment, high-speed towing circuits, emergency braking, ride and handling evaluations and hill-stop and restart tests.

Grenville Chamberlain, Caravan Club chairman, said: “The Mercedes-Benz ML 350 BlueTEC Sport performed faultlessly. Its strong performance made easy work of the hills, with stop/starts just as easily dismissed. The M-Class has a spacious interior with expected quality feel, comfortable seating and good ergonomics.”

Gary Savage, managing director of Mercedes-Benz Passenger Cars UK, said: “We are incredibly proud of the M-Class, with its reduction in CO2 and improvements in performance and economy; the vehicle really is class-leading. The category win in the 2013 Towcar of the Year Awards further demonstrates its outstanding capabilities.”
