# How much weight will my megane (car) carry?

Found 6th Jun 2010
Hi guys,

how do I know how much weight my car is able to carry? It is a standard megane 03 plate if that helps. Not tow but carry inside.

Thanks
Space might be the issue, what are the items?

I did but didn't make sense- is there a way to calculate it?
Did the previous owner keep the car manual and sell it on ebay? *******s.

Max gross weight minus the unladen weight of your vehicle = what you can load up with

Any 5 seater means 75KG x 4 = 300 Kg. On top of it you my add another 75 Kg for a luggage. So that means it should be able to carry 375 Kg.

75Kg x 4 as you still need someone to drive the car.:thumbsup:

thanks for that :thumbsup: repped
just make sure anything you carry cannot fly around if you have an accident.

it still amazes me when I see people with half their boot contents sitting on top of the rear parcel shelf

Imagine getting hit by a car jack thrown at 30mph. A Car manual would probably decapitate the driver at 60mph!
