Nick Lomas, Director General of the Caravan and Motorhome Club said: With the rise in popularity of the staycation, it's more important than ever that the Club continues to provide qualified and unbiased information for its one million members to help them to find the right towcar for their needs. We've also been receiving an increasing number of enquiries about the technicalities and practicalities of towing with hybrid and electric vehicles so it's fantastic news we are seeing a boom in competition entrants and winners in these categories.

Each vehicle at the show is put through its paces at the Millbrook Porving Ground near Bedford, and the club's team thoroughly checked each single vehicle before handing it over the ‘caravanability' and driving judges.

Just like its predecessors, the third-generation Nissan Qashqai was led by the team at Nissan Design Europe, based in central London, while it was engineered by Nissan Technical Centre Europe, situated in Cranfield, Bedfordshire.
