The short answer......yes you can tow the vehicles you mention using a tow dolly. In fact, a lot of vehicles can be dolly towed that CANNOT be flat towed. Just witness all the people towing their personal car with a dolly behind the U-Haul truck they rented when they moved. Certain manual transmission vehicles can be flat towed when their automatic transmission versions cannot.

2017 Automatic Ford Focus

I was dolly towing and hated it. I was wringing wet after laying on the ground trying to wrap the safety chain around the suspension on my Honda Civic. I sold the dolly and the Civic and bought a Focus that can be flat towed even with an automatic. The Ford dealer told me the transmission on the Focus is actually a manual transmission that is made to work as an automatic. Now I didn't say I like how it shifts but it is towable 4 down, even says so in the owners manual. Also received $4k rebate since I bought before the end of May.

Yeah I'm a little stuck right now because I'm in a lease and frankly I love my SS camaro. However when the lease is up I accept the fact that I need to go smaller, but I need something a little sporty, such as a hot hatch. That's why the Mazda 3 or Civic (si) seemed to fit the bill. Would also consider a Fiesta, but the St is excluded.
