Mercedes-Benz GLC : Loading the vehicle / Steps for Determining Correct Load Limit

The following steps have been developed as required of all manufacturers under Title 49, Code of U.S. Federal Regulations, Part 575, pursuant to the "National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966".

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Steps for Determining Correct Load Limit (1): Locate the statement "The combined weight of occupants and cargo should never exceed XXX kg or XXX lbs." on your vehicle's placard.

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Steps for Determining Correct Load Limit (2): Determine the combined weight of the driver and passengers that will be riding in your vehicle.

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Steps for Determining Correct Load Limit (3): Subtract the combined weight of the driver and passengers from XXX kg or XXX lbs.

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Steps for Determining Correct Load Limit (4): The resulting figure equals the available amount of cargo and luggage load capacity. For example, if the "XXX" amount equals 1400 lbs. and there will be five occupants 150 lb passengers in your vehicle, the amount of available cargo and luggage load capacity is 650 lbs. (1400 - 750 (5 x 150) = 650 lbs.)

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Steps for Determining Correct Load Limit (5): Determine the combined weight of luggage and cargo being loaded on the vehicle. That weight may not safely exceed the available cargo and luggage load capacity calculated in step 4.

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Steps for Determining Correct Load Limit (6): If your vehicle will be towing a trailer, load from your trailer will be transferred to your vehicle. Consult this manual to determine how this reduces the available cargo and luggage load capacity of your vehicle.

Not all vehicles are permitted to tow a trailer. Towing a trailer is only permitted if a trailer-hitch is installed. Please consult an authorized Mercedes-Benz dealer if you have any questions about towing a trailer with your vehicle.

Even if you have calculated the total load carefully, you should still make sure that the maximum permissible gross weight and the maximum gross axle weight rating of your vehicle are not exceeded. Details can be found on the vehicle identification plate.

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Steps for Determining Correct Load Limit Have your loaded vehicle – including driver, occupants and load – weighed on a vehicle weighbridge.

The measured values may not exceed the maximum permissible values stated on the vehicle identification plate.
