What's the best 4x4 for towing a horse box?

What would you suggest for an SUV 4x4 with towing capacity of 2000kg to tow a horse box. My ideal car, a Volvo XC60, is like looking for hen’s teeth. Budget is £20k.

Try a Kia Sorento. Its 2.2-litre diesel engine makes light work of towing a horse box, while its 2500kg towing limit will be more than enough for your needs. Also look at the Hyundai Santa Fe or Skoda Kodiaq.

It's a proper seven seater with a big boot. Very well equipped with neat practical touches. Strong range of engines including full and plug-in hybrids.
