Maximum Weight Limit ?

Hello,
Just wondering if someone could explain the total weight limit I can put in the Pulsar. I am looking to take a camping trip with 5 of us.
Looked at the vin plate.

1785 KG (Gross Vehicle weight? )
2985 KG (Gross train weight?)
1- 1000 KG (Front axle I assume)
2- 875 KG (Rear axle)

Done a search online and I think my vehicle weight is 1,306KG (1.5 Tekna) but I have also read that the drivers weight and fluids (75KG) has been added/Subtracted already from a figure..

Little stuck .. do I just subtract 1785 from 1306 giving me 479KG free weight to play with for my other 4 passengers and luggage? (with the driver weight already included).

This is what I found below with the drivers weight, I am not fully sure on it..

"Kerb weight is the total weight of a car with standard equipment, a full tank of fuel and all necessary consumables (e.g., motor oil , coolant, etc.), but not loaded with passengers nor cargo. Note: Nissan PULSAR Nissan kerb weight is not fully comparable*.

*Many EU manufacturers include a driver (=75 kg), while others use fixed levels of fuel and other variables to equalize the value for the comparison of different vehicles."

Thanks,
Jamie

Re: Maximum Weight Limit ?

Personally, given that there seems to be best part of half a tonne to play with, unless passengers are on the large side, I wouldn't worry about it.
If all adults and large (or the local rugby team) impose a strict weight limit on the luggage

I would not include driver in kerb weight unless Nissan specifically say they do.

You can check at public weighbridges BTW, google for locations and if any charge, will tell you what unladen weight is, then you can calculate/measure/weigh as needed.

All adults? Are you intending to carry a load on a roof-rack or tow a trailer? Tent camping or caravan camping?

Re: Maximum Weight Limit ?

When the car is tested isn't the weight recorded as part of the brake performance test ?
