What better way to explore Britain’s beautiful countryside than with your caravan in tow? Today's modern caravans now offer larger berths that come with all conveniences of your home, which makes them a little on the heavier side! This means that you will need a car that is suitable for towing your holiday home, as well as allowing space for your family and extra luggage.
From roomy SUV’s and comfortable 4x4’s that are perfect for a family, we will take you through some of the best car models for towing a caravan. Keep reading to see what made our list.
Land Rover Discovery
The Land Rover Discovery is a classic vehicle and has developed a reputation for being safe and powerful enough to climb steep country hills. If you are looking for a luxurious car that is spacious enough for family members and extra luggage, this could be a perfect option for you. It is flexible enough to hold seven-seats and combines an innovative infotainment system to help you stay connected with friends and stay on track during your journey. It will put your mind at ease if you have a large berth caravan due to its capacity of up to 3,500kg. The Land Rover Discovery will make you feel safe during any journey.
The Nissan Qashqai is perfect if you want a smaller, family-friendly SUV. It combines an attractive appearance with practicality and has been praised for its ability to carry out hill starts effortlessly, as well as its stability at speed and smooth braking. The Nissan Qashqai comes with a large 430-litre boot size, so it is great for packing essentials when you are out on the road. You will find that this vehicle also comes with a diesel engine option, to give you increased acceleration during towing.
The Volkswagen Tiguan will give you a comfortable and quiet SUV to tow your caravan with. We love that this option provides added all-round visibility for those driving. The Tiguan offers a raised-up driving position to help drivers feel more in control when towing a large caravan through roads and traffic. For added security during long-distance trips, this vehicle also gives automatic emergency city braking which is perfect to ensure you and your passengers are kept safe when towing a large caravan.
The Audi A6 is a stylish cross between an estate and an SUV, it comes with chunky body mouldings which help give this vehicle a strong and stable appearance. Although it is a more expensive and luxurious car to buy, it comes with low running costs which make it an ideal long-term investment. You will be impressed with the Audi A6 adaptive air suspension, four-zone climate control system, and practical blue tooth connectivity. This is a suitable option for those who want style, luxury, and security.
Ford Mondeo Estate
This is a great option if you are searching for an estate that is spacious, but versatile. This vehicle won’t look out of place on urban roads or along steep countryside roads. The Ford Mondeo Estate can comfortably tow 1341kg and there is plenty of space inside for passengers and luggage which is ideal for long journeys. The driver's seat also offers adjustments to allow the driver maximum comfort when driving long-distance journeys.
We hope we have given insight into a range of cars that will cater for caravan towing, and add maximum stability, security, comfort, and space.
