Can I tow a caravan with my Honda Jazz?

I own a Honda Jazz 2014 EX Auto. Would I be able to tow a caravan? If so what weight?

Asked on by

I believe your Jazz has a kerb weight of 1155kg. Honda quotes an maximum towing capacity of 1000kg but it's advised that you shouldn't tow more than 85 per cent of the kerb weight - so that's 981kg. Most caravans are heavier than this, unfortunately - especially by the time you've added your personal goods to the caravan. Take a look at lightweight caravans such as those made by Teardrop.

I am looking for a reliable and economical SUV to pull a 4 or 5 berth caravan. What do you suggest?
My understanding of towing capacity is that it is based on the kerbweight of the vehicle. Most manufacturers recommend 85% of gross kerbweight. So how come so many large 4x4s can tow way above that weight?...
