Towcar summary

What's good?

Tows very easily including up hills and tackled the A30 with ease. Electric auto-off handbrake is very handy for setting off. Fuel economy is excellent. Towed 320 miles with mix of A roads and motorways on 3/4 of a tank of diesel, never really went over 2000rpm including on hills with having 6 gears

What's bad?


Would you recommend it?


Towing performance ****

How well does it tow?

Very good

Solo performance ****

What's it like without the caravan?

A lovely drive

Reliability ****

Anything to look out for?

Headlight bulbs are dealer only to be changed, side lights takes seconds, but it's a wheel off job for main beam bulbs.

Practicality *****

Is it easy to live with?

Excellent with 3 separate seats in rear on their own runners so can be staggered to stop kids arguing, plus two more in boot if needed, massive boot when two rear (6 & 7) seats dropped in floor, plus all come out in a few minutes making it like a van in the back.

Buying experience ****

Did you buy it new or used?


Where did you buy it?

Independent showroom

What was the seller like?
