We couldn't simply just pick one car and say that it’s
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
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
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
Best car for over £32,000 - Jaguar XF 2.2D Premium
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
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.
