Can I tow a horse box with the Santa Fe?

Is a 12-year-old Hyundai Santa Fe 2.0-litre suitable for towing a horsebox?

Hi Caroline,

Yes, but watch the weight. The maximum unbraked towing capacity for that model of Santa Fe is 750kg and the braked weight is just 1,875kg so be careful. The Gardai are targeting trailer and horsebox users to make sure they're not exceeding their maximum weights. You also need a category BE licence if the combined weight of car and trailer exceeds 3,500kg.
