This was the cheapest car (taking purchase price, fuel, road tax etc into account) capable of towing my caravan, and it has been faultless. Fuel consumption - local short journeys = 48 to 55mpg, long journeys = 60 to 70mpg, towing my caravan = 30 to 37mpg. There have been no problems. My only very small criticisms are 1. When I stop to take a photograph, if I don't remember to switch off the ignition, I can't open the boot to get at my camera, and 2. Sometimes when tilting the driving seat forward to access the rear the seat does not go back to exactly the same position. The only additional accessory I would like, which would improve my hitching up the caravan would be a rear view camera such as fitted to some Toyotas.
