Actually, the engine isn't the most significant factor in determining how much a vehicle can tow. More important is the strength of the frame, the braking ability, and the weight of the vehicle. Lighter unibody cars don't fare well because they just aren't strong enough. I'm really suprised that the Audi is rated at 3000 pounds...FireFly said:Call U-Haul and see if they sell a hitch for it. I know the Audi can tow something like 3000 lbs so the xi should have NO PROBLEM towing 1200.
Lexus rx 300 tows 3500 lbs and it has a similar size engine as the 330.
