For details of the Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) and the vehicle's axle weights, see PESOS.

Europe only: When towing, the maximum permissible GVW can be increased by a maximum of 100 kg. In this event, the road speed is limited to 100 km/h (62 mph) or less.


The combined weights of the luggage compartment, roof rack, rear seat passengers, and the trailer's nose weight are used to calculate the rear axle weight.


The trailer's nose weight is also used to calculate the GVW.
