Mercedes-Benz C-Class Owners Manual: Calculation example for determining the maximum load

Mercedes-Benz C-Class Owners Manual / Wheels and tires / Loading the vehicle / Calculation example for determining the maximum load

The following table shows examples of how to calculate total and load capacities with varying seating configurations and different numbers and sizes of occupants. The following examples use a maximum load of 1500 lbs (680 kg). This is for illustration purposes only. Make sure you are using the actual load limit for your vehicle stated on your vehicle's Tire and Loading Information placard.

The higher the weight of all the occupants, the smaller the maximum load for luggage.

Step 1

  Example1 Example 2
Combined maximum weight of occupants and load (data from the Tire and Loading Information placard) 1500 lbs (680 kg) 1500 lbs (680 kg)

Step 2

  Example1 Example 2
Number of people in the vehicle (driver and occupants) 5 1
Distribution of the occupants Front: 2

Rear: 3

Front: 1
Weight of occupants Occupant 1: 150 lbs (68 kg)

Occupant 2: 180 lbs (82 kg)

Occupant 3: 160 lbs (73 kg)

Occupant 4: 140 lbs (63 kg)

Occupant 5: 120 lbs (54 kg)

Occupant 1: 200 lbs (91 kg)
Total weight of all occupants 750 lbs (340 kg) 200 lbs (91 kg)

Step 3

  Example1 Example 2
Permissible load (maximum gross vehicle weight rating from the Tire and Loading Information placard minus the gross weight of all occupants) 1500 lbs (680 kg) Ò 750 lbs (340 kg) = 750 lbs (340 kg) 1500 lbs (680 kg) Ò 200 lbs (91 kg) = 1300 lbs (589 kg)
