Nissan's latest Qashqai named Overall Winner at the 2014 Tow Car Awards

Nissan's brand new Qashqai has been named Overall Winner at the 2014 Tow Car Awards, with judges saying it has both "stunning looks and a captivating personality" to match its "pulling power".

The vehicle was lauded for its brilliant stability at high speeds, the "abundance" torque it delivers, its smooth braking, its overall impressive performance and "effortless" hill-start abilities.

David Motton, motoring journalist and one of the judges, said that it did not take long behind the wheel to figure out that "it has what it takes" to be a quality tow car.

"There was strong competition for the top prize this year, but the Qashqai’s towing ability, practicality and build quality make it the stand-out tow car champion of 2014," he continued.

"The first thing we look for in a tow car is stability at speed. This is one of the Qashqai’s greatest strengths - its unflustered approach to towing puts the driver at ease. Long journeys towing with the Nissan should prove hassle-free."

Jim Wright, managing director of Nissan Motor GB, explained that the company had invested in designing and engineering a car that is "truly outstanding across the board".

He concluded by saying that the Qashqai has set a new bar in the crossover section, laying down the mantle for others to emulate its success.
