Any vehicle capable of towing 2500kg is going to require a relatively powerful engine, so they are never going to offer high levels of economy. However, we would suggest looking at the Hyundai Santa Fe or Kia Sorento with the 2.2-litre CRDi engine, as these models can tow up to 2500kg and are available within your budget.
