What is the Volvo 100 series towing capacity?

The towing capacity on those cars depends on the year and transmission.

the newer the car the bigger the load it can haul, but I wouldn't use it to haul much more than you can stuff in its trunk and passenger space. A trailer of much size at all will burn up an automatic tranny in a few miles, and remember, don't ask a 4 cly. car to do the work of a truck.

Lots of 4 cylinder cars can tow easily. Towing capacity is also a function of braking power. Your vehicles braking system needs to have the reserve capacity to safely stop the combined weight of the car and trailer.
