What SUVs are good for towing, but in a low tax bracket?

What cars or SUVs are in the lower tax bands and can pull a horse box with two horses inside?

Hi Steve, 

Here's an answer to a similar question:

Depending on your budget, I think the new BMW X3 would be ideal. Perhaps the Skoda Yeti 4x4 would work if you are working off a smaller budget. Bear in mind that the most either of those cars can legally tow is 2,000kg (dependant on model), so whether they are suitable really depends on the weight of your horsebox - and horses of course...

Some versions of the Volkswagen Tiguan have a 2,500kg towing limit, but they fall into higher tax bands.

If you give us an actual weight to work with we can advise you further, but there certainly are not many four-wheel drive SUVs on the market that can tow more than 2,000kg and still be in Band A or Band B.
