Yaris Hybrid Towing

Hi all,
I have a 62 plate T4 yaris hybrid, I want to tow a classic motorbike (weight about 340lbs) even though the manual doesn't "recommend" towing, surely the car could manage this small weight.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.


Cheers Graham

Seems like it's sorted, Witter do a towbar for that model.

Cheers, Graham

Towing legallity

It is illegal to tow with a hybrid yaris until such time as the Ministry sets out its weights etc.
It doesnt matter if you can buy a tow bar.
Anyway, I would not want to be thefirst to try it

As above the car has to be type approved aka homologated to tow a lot of smaller modern cars have low nose weights or are not type approved

the facelift 14-17 maybe approved for towing but you need to check your V5
