It is within the towing capacity of the engine, but it IS over the 85% weight ratio of your vehicle (curb weight of 2018kg) So it is legal, and the vehicle is designed to be able to tow higher than that (4409kg) but in some countries they have "rules" about not exceeding 85% of the weight of your vehicle (having a heavier trailer than towing vehicle could cause issues in an out-of-control situation)
