Cobalt towing

Well I was thinkin, I have another car in Oklahoma a suzuki furenza i believe is one of the ectotec clases also but a 2.0. anyhow i need to get it from there to GA. My question is Can a cobalt tow another car? I know some car have the strength and ability do do such trailers and some other things but could a cobalt physically tow another car. I have no mods no rims just bone stock on the furenza and i believe it weighs the same if not less, any ideas?

I don't think the Cobalt is rated for towing a car.

Well, unless you want your car to look like Santa's Sleigh with the reindeer in the air, and the sleigh on the ground, then i suggest renting a truck.

The cobalt would have an issue towing the trailer empty, let alone with another vehicle almost matching it's weight..... and besides, the little front wheel drive transmission on the cobalt would shred gears towing something the likes of another vehicle on a trailer
