Vehicle load limits include total load capacity, seating capacity, towing capacity and cargo capacity. Follow the load limits shown below. Total load capacity and seating capacity are also described on the tire and loading information label. For location of the tire and loading information label, see “Checking tire inflation pressure”.

Total load capacity:

383 kg (845 lb.)

Total load capacity means combined weight of occupants, cargo and luggage.

Tongue load is included when trailer towing.

Seating capacity:

Total 5 (Front 2, Rear 3)

Seating capacity means the maximum number of occupants whose estimated average weight is 68 kg (150 lb.) per person. Depending on the weight of each person, the seating capacity given may exceed the total load capacity.

NOTICE.

Even if the number of occupants are within the seating capacity, do not exceed the total load capacity.

Towing capacity (except for Canada):

Toyota does not recommend towing a trailer with your vehicle. Your vehicle is not designed for trailer towing.

Towing capacity (for Canada):

318 kg (700 lb.)

Towing capacity means the maximum gross trailer weight (trailer weight plus its cargo weight) that your vehicle is able to tow.

Cargo capacity

Cargo capacity may increase or decrease depending on the size (weight) and the number of occupants. For details, see “Capacity and distribution” that follows.

CAUTION.

Do not apply the load more than each load limit. That may cause not only damage to the tires, but also deterioration to the steering ability and braking ability, which may cause an accident.
