Britain’s Best Tow Cars
Posted on May 23, 2013
Summer is – allegedly – almost upon us and it won’t be long before our UK roads will be full of holidaymakers seeking a relaxing few days away in their caravans. So with this in mind we thought now would be the ideal time to have a look at the top towing cars for your caravan!
When you’re looking through lists of top tow cars from experts such as Practical Caravan magazine, What Car? and The Camping and Caravanning Club you’ll find the majority of the cars will be diesel. That’s because diesel engines do perform significantly better when it comes to carrying around heavy loads. They have plenty of that all-important torque and because of the economic benefits that come with a diesel, filling up your tank won’t cost you the earth.
Our Top 5 Towing Cars:
• Volkswagen Golf 2.0 TDI
• Volkswagen Passat Estate 2.0 TDI
• Jaguar XF
• Skoda Superb Estate
• Volkswagen Jetta – voted tow car of the year 2013 for the second year running
Our Top 5 Four-Wheel Drive Tow Cars
• Land Rover Discovery 4.3
• Volkswagen Tiguan 2.0
• Suzuki Grand Vitara
• Mitsubishi Pajero
• Jeep Grand Cherokee
If your car isn’t on this list, don’t panic! There are a huge range of cars out there that are more than capable of towing a caravan.
If you’re looking to upgrade your new caravan or you’re looking to invest in your first then all you need to do is find out how much weight your car can safely tow before you start looking for your new caravan.
