Ford Focus and Towing Help
Jammerben87 posted a topic in Car Comparisons & ShoppingHi, first time here but looking for some advice from someone with some experience. Im looking to get a new car, mainly because I sail small dinghies and need to tow one around without destroying my fuel economy and I was under the impression that the torque of a diesel would deal with the added wind resistance better (they don't add much in the way of weight, just size). Due to some good reviews and some drives in a friends I was looking at a ford focus hatchback, no more than 3 years old, and found that around my price range (8k) I could get either a 2010 1.8l or a 2011 1.6. Does anyone have any experience or recommendations as to which would better for dealing with relatively long journeys with a boat behind?
