The towing capacity on those cars depends on the year and transmission.

the newer the car the bigger the load it can haul, but I wouldn't use it to haul much more than you can stuff in its trunk and passenger space. A trailer of much size at all will burn up an automatic tranny in a few miles, and remember, don't ask a 4 cly. car to do the work of a truck.

Lots of 4 cylinder cars can tow easily. Towing capacity is also a function of braking power. Your vehicles braking system needs to have the reserve capacity to safely stop the combined weight of the car and trailer.
