Recommendations for 2WD SUVs to Tow Dolly

Looking for suggestions for types of 2WD (not AWD) SUVs to tow on a dolly. Not interested in 4 down towing as I already own a dolly and am very happy with it.



Would appreciate feedback on why you like the one your recommending.



Time to look for options to replace my existing vehicle.


Thanks

Any front wheel drive smaller SUV. Look at the Toyota RAV, Ford Escape, etc.

I dolly towed a Kia Soul. Not a bad car for running around. Pulled real easy

I dolly towed a Jeep Renegade . Better riding , more room for stuff. Little heavy for my old class C

I now dolly tow a Honda Ridgeline. The only FWD pickup. Roomy and good riding plus a pickup bed for dirty stuff. Pulls fine with my Thor Axis.

I am towing 21 Buick Enclave, before that, 14 SRX Caddy.
Buick has electronic parking brake which added a couple steps to prep for dolly tow.
