Toyota RAV4. It can haul 1,650kg in all-wheel-drive hybrid form. My brother bought it as an off-lease car at DM Auto Leasing (you can find out more here https://www.dm-auto-leasing.reviews/review.html if interested). The condition was great and the price was reasonable. I don't see any reason why hybrid could be a problem. Such cars are economic and are currently the best choice for those looking for an alternative-fuel vehicle for towing.

The hybrid model has a 3.3 liter gasoline engine combined with 3 electric motors. With that combination, the car can muster 268 HP and the electric motors have massive torque which is very nice when accelerating from a stop or merging into expressway traffic.

Volvo XC60 Recharge.
Tow rating of 3500lbs. Pup ups will be what we'll tow. Trust me, I know ALL about the numbers, so don't worry. [emoticon]
