Which 1.9 is it? They've done a number of different power outputs on this engine, ranging from about 90bhp up to 130. I have the 130 in the Laguna II, and it tows like a dream.

For towing weights, read the handbook, but be prepared for a shock. Renault have a stupid habit of quoting two different limits - one for 'driver only', and one for 'all other cases.' The latter is generally several hundred kilos below the former, and seems to be based on the car being fully laden. But if you have even a single passenger in the car, then that's the figure you're legally tied to.

If you need to tow heavier than that figure, then I've heard that you can request a revised limit from Renault Customer Services . Provided that you carry their reply with you while towing, you should be fine from a legal point of view.
