What is the maximum towing weight for the Vauxhall Mokka?

I have a 2015 Vauxhall Mokka CDTI eco, what is the maximum braked trailer weight it can tow?

Braked towing weights for the Mokka tend to range from 1200kg to 1500kg. Without knowing which diesel engine your car has and its exact kerbweight, I can't tell you which towing category your car falls under.

The maximum braked towing weight will be on a plate or sticker on your car somewhere. Either in the engine bay or inside one of the door frames. You will also need to check the noseweight (which is the downward force of the caravan or trailer). For best stability and safety you shouldn't tow anything that exceeds 85% of the kerbweight of the vehicle.

I'm looking for a good tow car under £10,000 to tow a horsebox with minimum braked towing weight of 3000kg. Running cost and reliability are most important.
At the moment we have a 180,000 mile diesel Volkswagen Golf for the short runs we do and a 60,000 mile diesel Honda Civic Tourer for the long runs and caravan trips. Every year, we do four caravan (1300kg)...
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?...

Front wheel drive or four wheel drive. Good rear passenger room. Efficient 1.7 CDTi. 140PS 1.4T is the engine of choice. Mokka X much improved. Very few reports of problems.
