Family SUV for small amounts of towing?

Asked by Julie Batey

We are looking for a vehicle that can do family car duties and tow our small 750kg caravan (although we may upgrade to a bigger one). We have looked at and like the Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk but I'm concerned about the cost of petrol if we take it long distances. The Kia Sorento was good but a mechanic told us to stay away as their engines blow up and are not a great make of car. The Toyota Kluger or Jeep Grand Cherokee are too big for our driveway.

Your mechanic is wrong. The new Sorento has been out less than a year, has zero engine troubles and is the one I would pick.
