More about the Audi A5
When it comes to safety, the Audi A5 is full of clever features that allow the driver to feel secure and safe on any journey. One of the features is the top view camera system: adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assist.
The pre-sense city is just one of the clever safety features that the Audi A5 is equipped with; not only does it scan the surrounding areas for any possible hazards, but it can also apply the brakes automatically to prevent a collision. The safety features work on speeds of up to 85km, scanning the road for any other vehicles or pedestrians. This works by using a windscreen mounted front camera with a range of 100 meters. If the vehicle detects any hazards or a threat of a collision, the driver will then receive warnings, and if necessary, it will begin to brake automatically. If the car detects unstable driving conditions, it will then proceed by electrically tightening the front seatbelts, and the windows and sunroof are then closed. The A5 will then automatically activate the hazard lights.
What’s the Towing Capacity of the Audi A5?
The Audi A5 has an average towing weight of around 1500KG; however, different trim levels offer a different towing capacity. The best way to receive an accurate towing capacity for your vehicle is by checking your VIN plate; this is usually located under the bonnet or on the passenger door sill. Our sales team will be happy to help if you need any further assistance.
Will it need a bumper cut?
For a towbar to be fitted to the Audi A5, the towbar fitter would need to make a non-visible bumper cut; the incision would be made to the bumper tray underneath the vehicle and would be invisible unless you are looking underneath the bumper. Due to the different trim levels available on the Audi A5, some vehicles may need further modifications made during the towbar installation; if you are unsure if this applies to your car, please contact our sales team for further assistance.
Which Towbar is best for my Audi A5?
There is a range of towbars available for the Audi A5, meaning that you don't need to compromise on the features you most desire from your Towbar.
The fixed flange towbar is an excellent option for those who do not wish to remove the Towbar after they have finished towing, although the chunkier design is known for causing some interference from the rear parking sensors. The fixed flange towbar is great for pairing with towing accessories such as bumper protector plates and bolt on cycle carriers. The accessories use the bolt on plate at the rear of the towbar meaning the driver is able to use the accessories at the same time as towing.
The fixed swan neck towbar has a thinner towbar neck to the fixed flange towbar and therefore is less likely to be detected by parking sensors; however, this is not guaranteed. This is a great option for those who prefer a sleeker-looking towbar but do not want to remove it after towing is completed. The fixed swan neck is compatible with all ALKO stabilisers and can be used with all cycle carriers that clamp on to the towball.
Finally, the detachable swan neck towbar is the perfect choice for those who want to protect their vehicle's aesthetic. Once towing is completed, the towbar neck can be removed, and the Towbar will appear practically invisible. The towbar neck is removed by unlocking the neck and using a twist and push action. The detachable towbar is also compatible with all ALKO stabilisers and all clamp on style cycle carriers.
