Mazda 323 Towbars

Mazda 323 Towing Specifics

The Mazda 323 was first introduced in 1977 by the Japanese manufacturer as a compact car, designed with strong towing capabilities. We will cover the towing specifics of this model below.

Mazda 323 Towbar Electrics Kits

It is recommended that all tow bars fitted to a Mazda 323 vehicle are done so with a dedicated electrics kit, rather than a universal electrics kit. A dedicated electrics kit not only ensures all modern features such as; trailer stability and parking sensors are functional but also helps to keep your vehicle's warranty unaffected.

We offer both universal and dedicated electrics kits for the Mazda 323 vehicle towbars, but be aware that universal electrics kits can invalidate any manufacturer warranty your vehicle has and may also require a bypass relay.

Check your Mazda warranty for more information.

Bypass Relays

All tow bars for the Mazda 323 models will not require a bypass relay if universal electrics are fitted.

A bypass relay works by powering what it is you are towing through transferring power straight from the battery instead of taking too much current away from your vehicle.

Whereas a dedicated system works in harmony with your vehicle's ECU and all of its functions.


This is the coding of the ECU to accept the dedicated system, this updates your vehicles software to run smoothly with the new towbar.

All Mazda 323 models will not require coding.

Coding is used to update your vehicles software in order for it to run coherently with the new towbar through the dedicated electrics.

Bumper Cuts

Depending on the towbar, Mazda 323 models will require a bumper cut. A bumper cut is when a fraction of the vehicle's rear bumper is cut in order to fit the towbar.

All Mazda 323 models have towbars that require non-visible bumper cuts.

Nose Weight

Nose weight is the amount of weight pushing down on the tow ball, it is important not to exceed the nose weight set on the tow bar, failure to do so could damage the car chassis and/or tow bar mounting points. Nose weight varies depending on the towbar you choose and are displayed under each tow bar below.

All Mazda 323 models have a nose weight of 60kg up to 75kg.

Towing Weight

Towing weight is the weight that a Mazda 323 vehicle can tow safely, without any risk of damaging the vehicle. Towing weights are bar specific and displayed below each towbar.

For a Mazda 323 vehicles, the towbars have a towing weight capacity of 1400kg up to 1650kg.

You will need to check the towing limit for your Mazda 323 vehicle model as it may not be able to tow up to the weight limit that the tow bar can tow.
