2024 Nissan Versa Braked Vs. Unbraked Towing Capacity
All vehicles have different towing capacities based on whether or not you’re towing a trailer that has trailer brakes installed.
Trailer brakes allow the trailer to stop faster than if only the vehicle is using its brakes, allowing the vehicle to tow more weight, so braked towing capacity will always be higher than unbraked towing capacity.
2024 Nissan Versa Braked Tow Capacity: 1,000 lbs.
2024 Nissan Versa Unbraked Tow Capacity: 1,000 lbs.
2024 Nissan Versa Towing Capacity Factors
There’s only one factor that affects the Nissan Versa tow capacity, which is the weight of cargo and passengers you’ve got in the Versa when towing something.
Number of Passengers
A big factor in calculating your vehicle’s towing capacity is how many passengers you’re carrying, which directly calculates into the vehicle’s GCWR.
This is true of all vehicles, not just the Nissan Versa, so always take into consideration the total load of your passengers and gear in addition to what you’re towing.
