    Check the vehicle handbook. Otherwise, it can tow up to the tare mass of the vehicle with an overrun brake and assuming you have the correct license.

    Without overrun brakes you can tow up to half the tare mass of the tow vehicle or 750kgs, whichever is lighter.

    Got hold of the official Renault agent specs ; it reads as follows:

    Max braked trailer (within the GTW limit) (kg) = 1500
    Max unbraked trailer (kg)= 695


    Tare weight (kg)=1320
    Gross Vehicle weight (GVW) (kg)=1899
    Gross Train Weight (GTW) (kg)=3399
    Max payload(kg)=582

    In this case the maximum towing limit is governed by SA law and not the manufacturer spec.

    Unbraked trailer: 1320 kg (tare) / 2 = 660kg.
    Braked trailer (if you have an EB license): 1320 kg.

    If the old Duster is anything to go by then the new one will tow like a dream.
