I've had a dig around the various towbar manufacturers sites, but so far I've turned a blank. As Hondo says, it's most likely 75Kg for the standard Scenic, though the Grand Scenic might have a lower limit due to the weight of the extra passengers over the back axle.

Edit: Silly me, I forgot. If you actually have a towbar, then the maximum noseweight will be stamped on the type approval plate. The 'type approval' law for towbars was introduced in 1998, so if your car is S reg or later and has a towbar, it must have this plate somewhere on the bar by law. It may well be on the cross-member though, or another part that's normally hidden from view. You'll probably have to have a crawl around to find it.
