I’m currently looking for a new car as mine doesn’t suit my needs anymore. I’m after something that’s fun to drive while being capable of towing at least 1800kg (~3970lbs) but preferably 2000kg (~4400lbs) or more. I’d prefer it not to be a SUV or truck and would like something reliable. I’m also mostly looking at petrol engines as I only drive ~10.000km (~62.000 miles) per year and have read that a petrol is better in this case.
The main issue I currently have is that I’m unable to find something that meets all these requirements. I’ve looked at the BMW F11, Audi A6, Volvo V90/V60, VW Passat and Mercedes E-class but neither of these are known for their reliability as far as I’ve heard. Are there any better options that I’m missing? I know that the Toyota Avensis Touring 2.0 can tow 1800kg on paper but I think the 152hp 145lb-ft engine sounds weak for that.
The cars main job will be a daily driver and I’ll only tow a couple times a year but it still needs to be able to tow those times.
Does anyone here have any recommendations on what I should get? I have a budget of about $25-30.000 but I live in Sweden so the market may differ some. I’d prefer something cheaper but based on what I can find there isn’t much to choose from.
Thanks in advance!
