The towing capacity is found in the vehicles handbook if you don't have those to hand you can work it out yourself. All you need is to find the VIN plate this is normally located on the drivers door pillar. It will normally show 4 weights we are only interested in the top two.
Gross vehicle weight, the Maximum Allowable Mass (MAM) of the vehicle including occupants, fuel and payload.
Gross train weight, the combined maximum allowable mass of the vehicle and trailer.
Now comes the math you take the Gross Train Weight and minus the Gross Vehicle Weight
4350kg - 2250kg = 2100kg
This Ford Kuga can tow 2100kg.
If your car is an import like a Mazda Bongo or an electric car or even some hybrids you may not be homologated (allowed) to tow. With these vehicles the Gross Train Weight will be 0000kg or no figure will be there at all.
If your VIN plate doesn’t list a train weight, you should not use your vehicle for towing doing so would be illegal.
