I suggest looking into how good our transmissions are just to be on the safe side, before towing.
Sorry but what does that even mean?
No company would not make a towing package available for a vehicle if it was not capable of the task. As I noted above, the package has a limit of 1600Kg towed (braked) and also has a down force weight limit on the tow ball but I can't remember the listed load. I'll have to check the towing placard on the door sill. Manufacturers are conservative in this regard. My personal experience is that this is a capable vehicle for towing if you stay within its limits. It's not in the league of the Pajero or that type of vehicle at a 3000Kg load but it fits the requirements. If a heavier tow than 1600Kg is the OP's need then this is not the vehicle for them.
For the record I find the CVT transmission sold in the Australian AWD SAWC version to be smooth on changes and have not had the problem of the transmission hunting between its faux gears either when towing or in normal driving conditions. It comes down to driving to the conditions and the situation at hand. Be aware of the vehicle and its limits and the ride and response when towing is good for this size of vehicle.
The OP is after feedback and experiences not indecision which your comment introduces...
