The best one is the one that hooks itself up to the towbar, never forgets to remind you the coloum is locked ,does not flat spot the tires when you drag it up your driveway in park, starts when you get there, and gets 57 mpg and has a curb weight of 100 lbs.
Where do you find such a vehicle??? We also need to be reminded that the battery has not been unhooked.
Jeep Liberty 4 WD. Easy to hook up; does great on the mountain backroads, decent mileage, drives and rides well on long hauls. My 2006 has 110,000 and my repairs have consisted of new brakes, new tires, and we like so well, we had new leather interior installed a couple of years ago. We may buy the wife a new car, but I will keep the Liberty for as long as possible as a tow vehicle. I see no problem getting 200,000 out of it.
we like our 4 door jeep wrangler
its a suv

That's my vote but then it's also one of our daily drivers and unless you're full timing, buying one, just because it makes for a good toad and sits the rest of the time is a very poor investment. So tow something like-able that will double as a daily driver, unless you have money to burn and don't really care.

Might as well "put my oar in the water." We started with a Jeep Cherokee towing 4-down. After 5 years we changed to a Subaru Outback 5 spd (smoother ride). All Subaru's with manual transmissions are towable 4-down with no speed or distance restrictions. The Subaru's have a great full time AWD with adequate ground clearance to travel most backroads (which we've done). Our '98 has over 122,000 miles with about 10,000 miles towing. The odometer doesn't accumulate miles while being towed. Subaru's are under 4,000# in weight (unless you used it as a trailer ).

Our 2005 RAV4 with AWD 5 speed shift has towing restriction - max 55 mph and run engine every 200 miles. We have towed it over 70,000 miles frequently at 62 to 64 mph with no consequences yet. We do run the engine every 200 miles give or take. This is not a big deal for us as we stop to change drivers every 2 hours so when we stop for lunch or fuel one of us runs back to start the engine. We now set a timer as once we forgot and found the engine idling at our next stop 100 miles down the road. Again no consequence other than wasted gasoline.
Long way of saying distance and speed restrictions may not be too much of a hassle in most cases, especially if you really like the car.

We went with the Chevy HHR for a couple of reasons. It's very comfortable, fairly light at 3100lbs, is front wheel drive which eliminates maintenance and potential repairs on an AWD or 4WD system that we don't need, and it gets 30mpg pretty easily.
But to answer your question about which vehicle is best?...easy, the one YOU like.
