New nissan qashqai towing weights



That brochure shows 1200kg for the manual and 700kg for the CVT. I think the steel belt of the CVT can't cope with too heavy a weight.

I've just bought a 3 year old 1.6 CVT and it had a towing bar attached, I'm starting to worry now about what the previous owner had been towing (although I believe if it was over-stretched the CVT fluid just overheats and the car goes into failsafe mode at low rpm till it's cooled to prevent any actual damage - at least that's what the owners manual says).

If in doubt, ask the previous owner. Just got a reply that mine only towed a 200kg dinghy a short distance on just 3 occasions. Quite nice to know that.
