Pretty pointless test and outcome, everyone knows they are the dogs for towing but it is not a good compromise for people who don't tow constantly.

The award should be the most unimaginative tow vehicle 2015.... I'd still love one but working mileage dictates otherwise.

Surprised to see the Audi B5 oil-burner (1999-2001) hasn't made the cut, again.

The current 8sp auto Disco 4 is a magnificent towing tool.

How about those that require offroad capability, aswell as towing ability? Neither are compromised.

people who offroad and need to tow won't go looking at a fiat will they.................

the caravan club have always been different (until now anyway) in that they looked for a compromise car...car being the operative word there.
