The German company nudged out some tough competition, beating the Case IH Magnum 380 CVX drive, the Class Axion 960 Terra Trac, the McCormick X7.624 VT Drive and the Valtra N154e Versu.

The TOTY jury — which is comprised of 25 European journalists —was impressed with the 942 Vario’s level of connectivity, the optimisation of its 9-litre MAN engine and its innovative hydraulic system that includes two separate high-flow circuits.
