BMW 525i Towing Capacity

Up to

2000kg
BMW 525i

The towing capacity of the BMW 525i supports up to 2000kg. This is a braked figure, while the maximum load for any vehicle without using trailer brakes is 750kg, if rated to tow that much in the first place. Kilograms can also be expressed as kilos, and if you want to know the tow rating in tonnes, just divide the kg figure by 1000. But, before you try towing with any car, ute, van, SUV or 4x4, be sure to check with the manufacturer or your owner's manual to ensure your BMW 525i matches the example listed here.
