The Best Cars for Towing Caravans
While only a minority of motorists will ever pull a caravan, many manufacturers have built their cars with towing capabilities. Towing capacities can vary from car to car, as can design features which make it more – or less – easy to hitch up.
What to Look For
SUVs, other 4x4s and large estate cars with powerful diesel engines and superb stability make light work of pulling regular caravans. These kinds of vehicles usually have large towing limits.
In terms of brands, 2018 Tow Car of the Year award went to the Skoda Kodiaq SUV (2,000kg towing limit). Other popular towing cars include the Volvo XC90 SUV; the Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport hatchback; and the Skoda Octavia Scout estate.
Make Sure You Have The Right Licence
It’s very important to check that you have the correct entitlement on your licence for towing a particular caravan.
