What size caravan or trailer, can the Abarth 500 tow?

If you are towing you want good torque to pull away easily despite the extra weight, and the car needs to be at least 15% heavier than the caravan to keep you stable at speed.

The model that can tow the biggest caravan or heaviest trailer is the Abarth 500 1.4L petrol which has 206 lbs/ft torque. It should be able to tow a braked caravan or trailer that weighs up to 800kg comfortably.

You must check your car handbook – maximum towing weights vary considerably with different engine and gearbox combinations.
