People have reported having no issues towing up to 1000lbs with no issues with current G2 prius. The 2010 prius has 2 more horsepower than corolla and corolla is rated at towing 1500lbs. The new prius in power mode should definitely not have any problems of course with no backseat passengers towing 1000-1500lbs. And, yes i know the cvt may not be able to handle it but i find that doubtful as other cvt's out there are able to tow. I would just like to tow a 1000lb jet ski and 200lb trailer, and don't want to step down from my current prius to a corolla. Any thoughts? Oh, and I'm well aware that toyota won't be giving the prius a towing capacity.
