That's a front wheel drive vehicle and Remco Towing says it must be equipped with a transmission lube pump to tow with 4 wheels on the ground. That will likely set you back around $1000-$1200 installed, depending on the dealer. See www.remcotowing.com

In addition, you will need a tow bar, base plate to attach tow bar to car, stop/turn/brake wiring from coach to car, and an auxiliary brake system for the towed car is strongly recommended (and legally required in some state and provinces).
