We tow a 2013 Honda Fit 5 speed manual 4-down and love it. Pop it in neutral and go. No pumps, no pulling fuses and only weighs 2500 pounds. Tons of room inside and makes a great commuter vehicle when you get where your going.
The downside is the ground clearance. If your looking to do some off-roading where you're going then a Jeep Wrangler might be the way to go. Honda CRV's and Jeeps are very popular toads for that reason.
