We pull a Fiat 500 Abarth. Very light, easy to pull and a lot of fun once we get there. Getting about 13.5 mpg and quite a few thumbs up.

This is our toad arrangement with the Solera.
It's 2014 Fiat Sport 500, five speed manual.
Tows like a dream and looks right at home back there!

We have a Fiat 500L Trekking as our toad. Here is a photo! Coming back from Sedona, AZ in a pretty stiff head wind and cruising at 62 MPH we averaged 14.2 mph.Click image for larger version

Chevy Sonic (hatchback or sedan). Ford Fiesta. Both under 3000# and automatic can be towed four down. Not expensive, comparatively. Maybe Don't need toad braking also. I don't behind my class A.

Like your set ups. Do you use a supplemental braking system for your towed vehicle?

I like that option.
Pretty cool car.
Do you know the curb weight of the 500 Abarth?

Our toad is a 2015 Honda Fit manual shift. We use Blue Ox base plate and tow bar with Invisbrake assist. Since I can't feel the toad on highway I keep rear camera on.
