But now that I read it more carefully it does actually include a rated towing capacity which I had not noticed before.

1.6 tonnes is not bad.

I still very much wish they had the back row though. My wife wants our next car to seat 7 people so we can haul some extra folks if we need to. I read they removed it to make room for the electric motor etc.. in the back, but the images from that review don't make it clear that they needed to remove it.

The caption for that image is "3rd row seats deleted for hybrid" not sure why though. Perhaps it is not the room that is missing, but anchor points that have been moved/removed.

I love the power outlet in the back too. It puts out 1500W
