Jaguar Land Rover has demonstrated its continued popularity with caravanners and the country set by claiming a trio of honours in the 2014 Tow Car Awards.

Land Rover's Discovery remains the pre-eminent car in its class and becomes the most successful car in the history of the awards with its seventh class win in eight years.

The Range Rover Sport was the first recipient of a new Money No Object Award and the Jaguar XF Sportbrake also emerged triumphant.

The Discovery 3.0 SDV6 XS yet again was the winner in the 1,900kg+ category, continuing to perform better than all its rivals, including more recently launched competitors.

It was the Discovery's fifth consecutive win and its seventh award in eight years, a record unmatched by any other vehicle.

The judges said: "It is going to take a really superb car to beat the Discovery. Power, performance, stability, practicality - it has the lot."

The new Money No Object Award was bestowed on the Range Rover Sport 3.0 SDV6 Autobiography Dynamic, praised by the judges as a "phenomenal tow car".

The Jaguar XF Sportbrake 3.0 V6 Diesel S was named best-in-class for the third consecutive year.

A record 56 cars were tested for this year's awards in the 1,700-1,899kg class, with the XF Sportbrake crowned the winner.

Jaguar Land Rover UK managing director, Jeremy Hicks, said: "These awards are a great reward for the strength of Jaguar Land Rover design and engineering."
