DCT?   

Depends on the power output, they will all tow your van fine 1200kg?

Petrol engine will be a bit of a chore.

Lower power diesel will pull far better than that, but it may take a hit on the economy over the higher power one.

Max tow weight = Cars gross laden weight + Caravans gross laden weight.

These 2 figures must not exceed 3500kg. And the Caravans gross laden weight must not exceed the cars UNLADEN weight.

Unless the manufacturer has set a lower limit.

Get a long test drive and see for yourself.

The key is if it can creep in drive and reverse,

Driving slowly into a parking space is a nightmare with a poorly designed auto clutch gearbox.

A sales rep who comes to see me has the 140 estate. the clutch burnt out on the first week he had the car, but since then no other problems. He says despite the clutch problem its far nicer than his previous passat

We have a 65 plate Hyundai i30 DCT, diesel with stop/start.
It towed our single axle 1200kg van with ease, all round South Wales, it achieved 32mpg towing with air con on.
I love driving it, it's very responsive and feels good!
Disappointed with dail mpg as I only get 40 mpg, but that's my daily commute of 5 miles each way crawling in traffic, long solo runs are very good.
Recommended if you have a lightweight van.
