Hi I have a Kia ProCeed I will be trading for a new car to tow our caravan,fancy a new Sportage 1.7 diesel 2 wheel drive level 2 trim but the specification info states a noseweight on the towball of only 50kg this is too low for our caravan.Does anyone else tow with a new Sportage? I am aware that a 2 litre 4 wheel drive has higher weight but I don't want one I want a 1.7 2 wheel drive

The nose weight is only to ensure the caravan stays on the tow ball and also that the rear suspension is not damaged,,,The nose weight should also be added to the kerbside weight and any passengers/luggage as this is extra weight in/on the vehicle and contributes to the max gross weight of the vehicle.
