Hi, just to let you know I got back from my weekend with a Caravan on the back and it performed fantastically compared to my previous car, the 2.0i Petrol Mondeo.

We are both so pleased with all aspects of the Kuga... A great car, great head turner!

Hi, Can you tell me what the towing details are for the Kuga. I have searched every website an dcannot find anything. If you hav ethe owners manual it will tell you the kerb weight and towing weight. I tow with a galaxy and have a twin axle. Dealers says it can tow 2100kg but I question that.

Hi Wigga


There is someinformationon this site already to get you started.http://www.kugaownersclub.co.uk/Kuga/Kuga-Driving-Quality.aspbottom of page underTSA (Trailer Stability Assist).

"With towing weight capacities of 2.0 tons for the FWD and 2.1 tons for the intelligent AWD, we felt it necessary to provide the driver with every assistance we could in giving them and other road users a safe journey."

Dave,
Thanks for that I have seen the max towing weight of 2100kg but was looking for the kerb weight and nose weights which are importatnt when towing a caravan. The recommendation fro mthe caravan club is you tow a caravan that is apporx 85% of the kerb weight of the car. The noseweight is how much can be loaded onto the two bar. neither of these valaues are available that I can find and was looking for anybody with a owners manal if they could see from that as it should be in there
