Towing limits
BMW X3

Overview of the towing limits and the '85% recommended towing weights' within a model range. In general, the caravan should not exceed 85% of the kerbweight of the car (if allowed). Of course, 50 kg more or less does not matter too much and not the difference between absolutely safe driving and dangerous driving!
