If you’re looking for your next tow car, then why not take a test drive of the ŠKODA Superb or Octavia? Both models have recently been awarded a win in the recent Tow Car Awards 2018, thanks to their great economy, driving stability at motorway speeds and more than capable performance on the test track. The awards are harshly judged by a range of experts from Practical Caravan, What Car? and The Camping and Caravanning Club, to ensure only the best take home the title.
The Superb won the 1400-1549kg category for the third year running, proving just how tough it is to beat. The vehicle was praised for its great overall ability, with judges concluding; “As a tow car, the Superb puts a tick in just about every box. It’s stable at speed, and powerful enough to quickly overtake dawdling traffic… Impressive official economy figures promise low running costs, and the Superb is great value for money.”
The Octavia took home the award for the 1400kg category and earnt itself a fantastic five-star rating in the process. Commenting on the Octavia’s win, the judges said the model “makes an extremely fine tow car. First and foremost, it’s stable at speed. On the test track our testers were happy to take the Octavia up to the legal limit and beyond. With plenty of passenger space and a huge boot it’s a practical choice for a family caravanning holiday.”
Both models offer factory fitted tow bars, in addition to a number or touring packs and accessories, meaning it’s so easy to personalise your vehicle to fit in perfectly with your lifestyle.

All vehicles that are sold by the Vindis Group are subject to an administrative / preparation fee of £90 inc VAT. For new vehicles this charge covers the cost of mechanically preparing the vehicle for delivery, the administration of new ownership documentation and final preparation for customer handover.
For used vehicles, this charge covers a full history and provenance check prior to being advertised for sale ensuring no financial risk or charge has been levied against the vehicle, that the vehicle has never been written off or stolen and final preparation for customer handover.
Vindis Group believe this level of preparation is crucial in ensuring we provide the highest level of customer satisfaction, for which the Vindis Group is renowned for.
For this reason, and in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, as of 6.00pm 23/03/2020 we made the decision to temporarily close all Vindis showrooms to members of the public. Whist we know this may cause some disappointment, our priority is to protect the well-being of our employees and customers in line with the latest Government guidance. For customers due to take delivery of your new vehicle we will be in contact and will aim to complete your transaction in a safe and compliant manner.
For those customers that are booked in for Aftersales care, all bookings other than those for Key Workers (as identified by the Government’s latest listings), urgent MOT’s and breakdowns are in the process of being cancelled; and each existing booking will have been confirmed with our team in advance of your visit to site. For other routine service and maintenance items, we will be in touch to re-arrange your booking for as soon as we re-open.
In order to facilitate the above, and in order to protect both you and our staff, our dealerships will be locked for the foreseeable future, and so upon arrival, please follow the instructions on the door in order to gain access. Additionally, it is vital that we ask that you do not attend any of our sites without having had a clear and specific communication that you qualify under one of the above guidelines, and we thank you in advance for complying with this difficult and possibly disruptive decision.
