Subaru for caravanning


It’s important to find the best tow car for your caravan. And you can be confident that no matter where you’re heading, we have an SUV that will see you over every peak, pass and muddy field. At Subaru, we put functionality before anything else. That’s why you’ll find Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and the low centre of gravity Boxer engine in every Subaru. Together they form a near perfect symmetrical layout to give you greater stability, exceptional handling and enhanced safety when towing.


Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive

Subaru’s All-Wheel Drive system sends power to all four wheels for maximum traction, balance and control when towing. You can be confident that you won’t get stuck on wet grass in muddy campsites or when towing a caravan in bad weather conditions.

Lineartronic Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT)

Our stepless gear ratios keep the engine of the tow car at its optimal rev range, increasing power and responsiveness, providing better traction when towing.

Boxer Engine

The Subaru Boxer engine has a horizontally opposed configuration, placing the pistons 180 degrees apart for a lower, flatter profile than other engine types. This gives the engine, and therefore the overall vehicle, a lower centre of gravity and a better sense of balance and gives you extra peace of mind with your caravan in tow.

    Customer Reviews

    Subaru has a range of models that are ideal for towing caravans. Here are some of the reviews left by our Forester and Outback customers.

    Having owned 2 Freelander Mk2's, I wanted an SUV that would at least equal the performance I had enjoyed previously. The Subaru Forester exceeded all expectations on all aspects, especially reliability.

    I have towed for 13 years with a Subaru and have never had any problems at all. The current model, 2.0XT, has so much power it makes for very relaxed and stable towing, as well as being comfortable.

    This car has everything you need in a good tow car: 4-wheel drive, decent kerb weight, plenty of power and torque, room to carry plenty of kit and even a reversing camera to ease hitch up.
