Some great tips to finding the right towing car for you.
Whether you are an avid fisherman, caravanner, jet skier or something similar chances are you do a lot of towing. If this is the case then you will know how painful towing with an unsuited car can be, and how much fuel it can burn.
Especially if you are dealing with rough and uneven roads down to secret fishing spots of remote camping grounds. So if towing things is a big part of your week to week life it makes sense to take it into consideration when buying a car.
There are exceptions to this rule, but far and above the most effective towing vehicles are diesel. They provide more torque which is essential in getting the extra weight moving, while also offering the added bonus of not murdering your wallet with fuel costs. While some petrol models may give you the same grunt work, chances are almost certain that it will cost you a lot more to get it done.
All wheel drive
This is another ideal feature for towing, especially when the trailer contains a heavy load. From a safety point of view it gives more security, and if you are venturing onto dirt roads to get to your holiday or recreation destination it isn’t a bad idea to have 4WD capabilities even without anything in tow.
Big and sturdy
The ting you are towing should not be heavier than your car, this is just asking for trouble if anything unforseen happens. One of the reason big 4WD are so popular for towing other than their all wheel capabilities and that many are diesel powered is they are almost always large and rigid vehicles that can stay in control of their towing load on the road.
So whether your pulling a jet ski or a 4WD camper trailer, take your time deciding your next car for the best choice for your lifestyle.
