The SEAT Leon has been named one of the UK’s best cars for towing at the Caravan and Motorhome Club Towcar of the year awards – and it’s easy to see why! Its all-around ability and outstanding design make it an easy choice for many drivers. The new Leon Estate starts at around £25,855 OTR or you could choose to finance a used car and spread the cost. On the road, the SEAT Leon delivers a smooth ride with good MPG and a spacious interior. The boot space is generous and provides 1301 litres with the seats folded down. A used SEAT Leon also features on our best-used cars under £10,000 if your budget won’t stretch to the latest version.
Dacia Duster SUV
Towing capacity: 1,400kg
The Dacia Duster SUV is a great contender for the best car for towing and it can be really budget-friendly too. If you’re looking for a car with good tow capacity but don’t want to break the bank, the Dacia Duster could be perfect for you. The Dacia Duster starts from around £15,295 and the latest generation has really built on its first. The latest spec has enough variations to suit a whole range of drivers and families alike. The base model doesn’t offer much but if you’re after a tow car for little money, it can be perfect. The higher spec offers much more and has a whole range of technology included.
Tesla Model X
Towing capacity: 2,270kg
At UK Car Finance, we love a good Tesla! Whilst they can be expensive to purchase, they are highly impressive. Not only is the Tesla Model X one of the few electric cars that can tow but they are also one of the best cars for commuting and features in our list of the top 10 safest cars – what’s not to love?! If you’re serious about getting a Tesla, you could use electric car finance to help spread the cost and reap the benefits of driving a Tesla! Its hugely powerful electric motor makes towing a caravan a doddle and its onboard technology makes life that little bit easier. When you attach a trailer or caravan, the Tesla Model X automatically disables features such as rear parking sensors and automatic steering assist. You can also use its towing system to stop your trailer from swaying side to side.
Towing capacity up to 2,000kg
The Volvo V60 is a great example of a hybrid car with impressive towing capacity. It’s one of our best cars for towing caravans due to its low running costs and its packed full of equipment. The Volvo V60 Estate can make a great family car on its own but then add on an electric battery that can travel around 54 miles and range anxiety will be little to worry about. The boot space isn’t affected by the additional battery either so you can still benefit from enough room for all the family. The Volvo V60 Hybrid has a real premium feel which can ve reflected in the price tag, with the newest model starting from around £40k.
Skoda Enyaq iV SUV
Towing capacity: 1,000kg
Another one of our favourite electric cars for towing is the Skoda Enyaq iV SUV! It’s also one of the newest cars on our list and was only released in the UK in Feb 2022 so you may not have only seen a few on the road so far this year. Whilst its towing capacity is lower than some of the rivals on our list, it can boast an impressive 336 miles on a single charge! The Skoda Enyaq starts from around £32,000 which can fit into many electric car enthusiasts’ budgets. It’s a large SUV that offers heaps of clever features and room for the full family. When it comes to getting the best cars for towing, the Enyaq should not be overlooked.
