I reckon 2 tons is probably a bit over the towing limits for the L2. Speaking of which, I see that Renault still haven't sorted their towing weights in the handbook. As before, they provide separate figures for 'driver only' and 'all other cases', with around a 300Kg difference in the maximum permissible trailer weight. On the 2.0 IDE , the driver was allowed to tow around 1300Kg alone, but only 1000Kg with a single passenger in the car (figures from my head - they might not be 100% accurate.) They must be allowing for one pretty heavy passenger.

The most ridiculous bit was that the 'all other cases' limit for the 1.4 Clio was actually marginally heavier than the same limit for the 2.0 Laguna. It's coming to something when a Clio can tow a bigger trailer than a Laguna.
