Front towing eyelet - where?

I can't find the place to attach a towing rope to the front of the car. Couldn't see anything about it in the owner's manual either, apart from the info that I shouldn't bump start the car, which I know. However, with the heavy snowfalls a tow rope might come in handy in some unfortunate event. But where do I attach it?

Eco display
Those 2 panels are the headlight washers (on both 8g and 9g)

Think it's behind the bumper by the fog lights on the main body. It's an eyelet type fixing I believe. There are webbing straps available but I believe you will have to remove grill around the fog lights as you can't tow straight otherwise.
