Top 13 Best Cars for Towing for 2013

SUVs and trucks might get all the attention when it comes to towing capability, but there are quite a few sedans, hatchbacks and wagons that also have the goods to haul some fairly heavy loads. While their tow ratings aren't as impressive as those of, say, a full-size SUV, these choices are certainly robust enough to haul a small boat for a weekend at the lake or a small camper for a few days of decadent glamping (as the British like to call luxurious camping).

The 13 models shown below are the sedans, wagons and hatchbacks with the highest tow ratings. Thanks to ties, our list is longer than usual. The choices listed are fairly diverse. For the well-heeled, there are luxurious and opulent models like the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo and Porsche Panamera. There are also more affordable choices listed, such as the Toyota Matrix and Subaru Outback.
