I'm looking to buy the Mazda CX30 AWD, but I see that it's not rated for towing. I want to be able to tow a 1500lbs pop-up camper once in a while. The Mazda CX5 IS rated for towing up to 2000lbs, but comparing the power specs between CX30 and CX5 I'm not understanding why only the 5 is rated-- they are nearly identical. Same engine size (2.5L 4Cly), comparable HP (186 vs. 187) and curb weight (3,388 lbs vs. 3,679 lbs).

Can someone help me understand why the CX5 is rated to tow but the CX30 isn't?

Try reading through these threads. They may prove helpful; A Hitch is Coming!
