DIS­COV­ERY HAS been hon­oured for the eighth time at this year’s highly-re­spected Tow Car Awards. The Awards, which have been run­ning for nine years, have hon­oured the Dis­cov­ery as the heavy­weight tow ve­hi­cle of choice for all but one year. It is a feat un­matched by any other ri­val.

Dis­cover’s win­ning fea­tures in­clude Trailer Sta­bil­ity As­sist, which de­tects the pres­ence of a trailer and, above 37mph, mon­i­tors its be­hav­iour. Se­lec­tive brak­ing of the ap­pro­pri­ate wheels au­to­mat­i­cally helps to cor­rect any sta­bil­ity is­sues.

Also avail­able is Tow­ing As­sist, which pre­dicts the tra­jec­tory of both ve­hi­cle and trailer dur­ing re­vers­ing ma­noeu­vres, en­abling safe and easy cou­pling and pro­vid­ing a pre­dicted path for the ve­hi­cle when re­vers­ing by su­per­im­pos­ing coloured lines over the im­age on the touch-screen.
