10 Most Popular Cars & Vans for Towing

Author: Select Car Leasing     Date: 30-08-2018

Regardless of whether it’s a trailer, caravan, horse-box or boat, if you tow, you’ll know that your choice of both vehicle and engine are crucial to making the experience feel effortless rather than an unstable uphill struggle.

Whether you’re towing every day, or just for your summer getaway, when you lease a tow car, you have the advantage of access to all the very latest technology and very best, most powerful engines to tackle what can be a very demanding driving task.

Thanks to on-going developments in engine technology, manufacturers have been able to couple tow capability with family lifestyle needs, the result being family sized saloons and SUVs.

Car Towing

The Skoda Octavia Estate, Vauxhall Insignia or the Audi A6 Allroad are great examples of family sized saloons that will tow a maximum of between 1.6 - 2.5 tonnes, whilst also offering the perfect meld of practicality, space, comfort and economy, meaning you don’t have to sacrifice your lifestyle just to be able to cope with those towing days.  If you are looking to tow something a bit bigger, such as a larger caravan or camper trailer, then a Range Rover, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Mercedes GLC, an F-Pace or the Audi Q7 will probably be more suitable.

If you’re towing requirements are more commercial in nature, there are also plenty of fantastic options. With the ability to carry substantially more weight and offer more power for more constant tow driving, pickup trucks remain unbeatable for commercial towing demands. There are many pickups on the market which catch the eye including the Mitsubishi L200, Ford Ranger and VW Amarok. These three vehicles represent some of the best this sector currently offers, providing plenty of rear loading space and a combative range of engines to help make towing simple and effective.

Key things to consider If you’re looking for a tow car:

Maximum weight… what will you be towing and what is the maximum weight (don’t forget to include the contents of the caravan, horsebox, etc.)?

Preferred engine type… does your preference for diesel, petrol, hybrid or electric practically suit your towing needs (read our guide to engine types for more on this)?

Towing capability… what is the maximum towing capability of the car you’re considering?

Overall lifestyle… does the car suit your non-towing lifestyle needs, as well as your towing needs (think space, comfort, luxury etc.)?
