Question Towing capacity

Anyone know what the towing capacity of the 2.5 RS, and or WRX sedan and wagon is? I have a Morris Mini (< 1100 lbs.) I'd like to be able to tow on a lightweight trailer to the track. Can it be done safely? Thanks!

Haven't bought the car yet. Knowing the capacity will help make my decision whether or not to buy either the WRX or 2.5 RS.

I think all of the new Subarus are 2000lbs. Maybe 2500 for the bigger ones though.

Almost all tongue weight = 10% of the towing capacity. But not always.

It should list the capacity in your manual. I believe the MY98 I have is limited to 1500lbs for towing purposes.
