I still believe the 1.6 will struggle. 
The 1.6 diesel may fare better than the petrol engine, but I wouldn't try to tow caravan with less than the 2.0 litre.

Hi,

The 1.6 struggles badly going up a hill solo, so I wouldn't advise it for towing.I towed my 2 berth with my 1.5Dci, but doubt if I would chance it with the totally gutless petrol engine I now have.

Absolutely.... My 1.6 petrol QQ was overtaken by a car and caravan going up a hill once... totally mortifying!!!
Don't even risk it.... All the best

The 1.6 petrol suits loads of folk.... but for some of us it's gutless, just down to personal preference I guess... I hate the fact I think it desperately needs a sixth gear!!

This web site could help with caravan towing. www.whattowcar.com
I was thinking about a caravan but I'm limited to what I can tow because of the tow weight for the QQ.
