Weight & Cargo Capacity

So i'll be moving from one duty station to the next here in few weeks. I've been trying to find on the weight and cargo capacity of my Focus. It's a Sedan SE. What's a nice amount of weight it can carry and what is the cargo capacity with back seats folded down, if anyone can give me on a close estimate I would really appreciate it :)

I pcs'd with mine and had it loaded down. I don't know the weight but she was sittin low and still got 35.8 mpg highway. And if you're moving yourself then you're Gina need to get it weighed empty and full for your travel voucher. Send me a pm if you need more info. Would be happy to help.

Your door stickers would list the weight capacity and axle load limits. Mine says 375kg (827lbs) of combined occupants and cargo.

Not an MK3 but My MK1 Ive had it loaded so full the only windows I could see out of was my windshield and drivers window. Packed as full as possible, She held up great over a 700 trip and still got 32mpg and that was with over 130k on the clock at the time. I wouldnt expect anything less from the MK3

I always find this number to seem low (827 divided by 5 passengers = 165.4) but it is what it says. I'm taking the OP's changing of duty station to mean they are in one of the armed forces or similar. Putting 5 military guys in the car would surely hit that limit pretty fast. Although, I know there have been focus drivers that were known to pull small trailers without issue...

When ever hauling lots of extra weight, just remember to give yourself more time to slow down
