From staycation holidays with the caravan to towing a boat down to the seaside or even just taking garden clippings to the tip, the ability to hitch something to the back of your car is, increasingly, an important lifestyle necessity. And, after seeing off strong competition from the Kia Sportage and mighty Land Rover Defender 110, our winner of Best Car for Towing is none other than the Volvo XC40.
Available with internal combustion, hybrid or pure electric power, there’s an XC40 to suit all tastes. This compact SUV’s combination of style and practicality a winner with owners. “It’s great for shifting gear at weekends like bikes and sailing gear but smart enough and comfortable for long business trips,” enthused one owner, demonstrating just how broad the XC40’s abilities really are. Comfort, practicality and – predictably for a Volvo – safety were also listed by many as reasons they love their cars. As for towing all versions of the XC40 excel here, but if capacity is crucial the mild hybrid B4 AWD automatic is the one you want for its 2,100kg maximum.
