The Best Used Cars to Buy If You Need to Haul a Motocross Bike

Vehicle for Motocross Bike

Of course you would love to be able to ride your motocross bike everywhere, but the reality is, at some point you're going to need to transport it. A cargo van of almost any make or model would be good for this purpose, but if you need a vehicle that is every bit as suitable for in-town driving during the week as it is for indulging your weekend passion, there are several used cars you can consider. Our top picks are the Subaru Impreza Outback Sport, Toyota Corolla Hatchback, VW Jetta Wagon, Volvo C30, and the Ford Contour, and of which will deliver more than enough power to allow you to trailer your motocross bike.

  • Subaru Impreza Outback Sport: Practically any Subaru is fine for trailering a dirt bike, but we like the wagon because it also provides plenty of room for you to stow your gear. Most used Outbacks are rated for around 1,500 pounds, with the newer ones handling even more while delivering better mileage. You’ll also appreciate the comfortable ride after you’ve spent a long day on your bike.

  • Toyota Corolla Hatchback: The Corolla’s towing capacity is essentially the same as that of the Outback, and again, you’ll have plenty of room for tools and other gear. We also like the way it handles, and the great gas mileage. This is definitely a great car for the motocross enthusiast.

  • VW Jetta Wagon: The Jetta wagon is another car that will serve you very well on your daily commute. And when the weekend rolls around and it’s time to take a road trip to your motocross event, you’ll appreciate the outstanding gas mileage. The wagon also provides lots of room for whatever you need to take along with you.

  • Volvo C30: The Volvo C30 is very similar to the Ford Focus and the Mazda 3. The difference is that it can easily handle a trailer along with 2,000 pounds of cargo. This is a solid, reliable vehicle.

  • Ford Contour: This comfortable family sedan also has no trouble handling 2,000 pounds of cargo. While perhaps not the first vehicle you would think of when considering trailering a dirt bike, we put this on our list because not only does it deliver the goods in terms of power and towing capability, no one does an interior like Ford. And at the end of the day, you’ll be glad you chose such a comfortable ride.

These five vehicles are great for motocross transportation, and will also serve you well the rest of the week.
