Camping Caravanning Motoring And Everything Outdoors

Author Bio: Adam Stevens is an avid caravanner and loves all things cars. As well as this, hes also a copywriter for Central Contracts, which specialises in contract hire and car leasing.

We couldn't simply just pick one car and say that its the best, that'd be silly. We have picked a few categories and then chosen the best cars in them categories, though. This should give us a better chance of choosing the right car for you.

Best car for under 16,000 - Skoda Fabia 1.6 TDI CR Elegance


When you think about a car to tow a caravan you don't necessarily look to a hatchback. However, the Skoda Fabia is a great little car that can do most of the things a saloon or 4x4 car can do, but for a fraction of the price. This diesel car has a huge amount of torque and can easily cruise at 60 mph with a caravan attached.

Best car for under 25,000 Volkswagen Golf 2.0 TDI 140 Match


A great car and a personal favourite, the Golf provides good all-round performance without lacking in any area. The handling of this car with a caravan in tow is simply sublime, and it just keeps wanting to go faster. Hill starts are nothing to fear with this car as it can easily haul a 1,000+ kg caravan up the steepest of hills.

Best car for over 32,000 - Jaguar XF 2.2D Premium Luxury


Yet another diesel car, the Jaguar XF really impressed us and handled the caravan like a god. Easily towing a caravan in excess of 1,000 kg, the Jaguar boasts it's 197 bhp and top speed of 140 mph by climbing hills while towing with ease. The low-emission Jaguar XF provides a good mpg from the four-cylinder diesel engine and gets approximately 100 miles out of 12.

Best 4x4 tow car - Volkswagen Touareg 4x4 3.0 V6 TDI 245 SE 5dr


The Touareg is a wonderful 4x4, especially for towing heavy vehicles. No matter whether you need a horse box towing or a large, multi-berth caravan, the Touareg won't let you down. The diesel engine gives you that extra bit of torque to allow the 4x4 to tow 3.5 tonnes worth of vehicle. This towing titan throws out 733 miles worth of haulage in one full tank while getting an average mpg on 39.2.

So, there's our top four cars for towing your caravan. What do you think? Do you agree? If not give us your suggestions, we'd love to hear some of your ideas.
