Kia Sportage Wins AutoTrader Best Car For Towing Award 2019

Towing is one of the most strenuous things a car will go through. Put a big trailer or caravan behind your car, and you’ll most likely be doubling your weight, significantly reducing your stability and putting significant amounts of pressure on the mechanics of your car. No wonder, then, that towing can be a very stressful experience. That’s why stability was one of the biggest factors stated by owners as the reason for voting the Kia Sportage as the 2019 winner of The AutoTrader Best Car for Towing award.

Like all of their awards, this category was decided by feedback collected from a survey of more than 60,000 car owners, all of whom rated their car in 16 key areas. That means an Auto Trader New Car Award is a real stamp of approval from people that live with the car day-in, day-out, and it makes each winner a true consumer champion.

As well as praising its stability, owners also rated the Sportage in first place for reliability, safety, and features, and it also ranked in second place for durability, comfort and power.

Here are just a few of the comments owners made about the Sportage…

“Feels substantial on the road , sits well on the straight and feels safe rounding corners.”

“Build quality and driving comfort – 440-mile journeys in a single day are no problem.”

“I love the sitting up driving stance, the quality feel to the interior is excellent.”

Commenting on the Sportage’s victory in this category, Auto Trader’s road test editor, Ivan Aistrop, said: “Aside from its abilities as a tow car, the Sportage is also very accomplished in lots of other areas, which is why it’s one of the most popular cars of its type. It’s practical, good to drive, stylish and comes with an incredibly generous warranty.”
