    Ernest,

    I do not know when you posted this question, maybe you got your answer long ago.

    I do not think you will be able to tow any caravan with an IX35. I have the 2l model (2011) as well, and it struggles to tow my baggage trailer (750kg), to such an extend that I had to replace the 5th gear, so I had all gears redone. The IX 35 has no power, and I find it much more lazy than my previous Tucson.

    Hi Ernest,

    The 1990 Jurgens Classique was listed as having a GVM of 1 250 kg and being suitable for a 2.8-liter tow car. If this GVM is correct you will need a car that has a Tare weight of 1 250 kg,  or more. That is to be street legal. Powerwise, the performance 2-litre cars are producing these days its remarkable but all hinges on the GVM of your caravan. Up on the reef it may be tiring towing with a vehicle that is working hard to maintain a steady speed.!
