I see lots of Priuses towing light trailers here.

The Mazda5 micro-van is not supposed to tow anything in North America, but the UK version of that vehicle has a 3000 pound towing capacity! I wonder if the UK Prius also has a tow rating. Of course, the Europeans are both more enthusiastic about towing with small vehicles, and a whole lot more careful in doing so, than many North Americans.
