More about Audi Q5 Towbars
As standard, the Q5 is equipped with Quattro on-demand; this enables the drive forces to be distributed where needed between the individual wheels. The Audi Q5 also has a top view camera that allows the driver to access the view of the entire area surrounding the vehicle. The top view camera uses four wide-angle 360-degree cameras that are the perfect help when manoeuvring in tight spaces.
There are many safety features enabled in the family SUV, including Audi adaptive cruise control with traffic jam assist and active lane assist and Audi pre sense city.
Using the windshield-mounted front camera, Audi pre sense city scans the road for other vehicles and pedestrians. If there is any threat of a collision, the driver will receive a series of warnings, and if necessary, the car will start to apply the brakes fully.
What’s my Towing Capacity?
The Audi Q5 has a towing weight of approximately 2000KG; however, this could vary on other vehicles due to different trims available. To achieve an accurate towing capacity reading, please refer to the VIN plate located on your car. If you require further assistance, please contact our sales team.
Which Towbar is best for my vehicle?
We offer a wide range of towbars for the Audi Q5, enabling as much room to cater to everyone's towing needs as possible.
A fixed flange towbar is an excellent choice for those who don't ever wish to remove the towbar off the vehicle, as the fixed flange towbar is a permanent towbar. However, please note the chunkier design of the Q5 means that parking sensors are more likely to detect the towbar when in reverse, causing the sensors to react accordingly. The fixed flange towbar is an excellent option for anyone wanting to add additional towing accessories to their towbar, as the flange is equipped with a bolt-on plate that allows for extras to be bolted on to. This plate allows for accessories such as bumper protector plates and bolt-on cycle carriers to be fitted and used simultaneously to use the towball to tow. The fixed flange towbar is compatible with all styles of cycle carriers, trailers, and most caravans. If a caravan is fitted with an ALKO stabiliser, then an ALKO ball must be purchased prior to fitment for the towbar to attach.
The fixed swan neck is another permanent towbar, meaning it cannot be removed once towing has been completed. However, due to the thinner design of the towbar, it is a lot less likely to cause any issues with the parking sensors when in reverse. The fixed swan neck towbar can be used with all trailers, clamp-on style cycle carriers and all caravans. An ALKO towball is not required on the fixed swan neck when towing a caravan with an ALKO stabiliser.
The detachable swan neck towbar is ideal for an Audi Q5 with rear sensors fitted as the towbar neck can be removed when towing has finished. The Detachable towbar allows for the vehicle's aesthetics to be unchanged when the neck is removed as the towbar becomes practically invisible. The detachable can be easily removed using a twist and push method but can also be locked with a key to protect it from theft. The detachable swan neck towbar is also compatible with clamp-on style cycle carriers, trailers and caravans. It is also ALKO compatible, meaning no ALKO towball would need to be purchased when towing a caravan with ALKO stabilisers.
Which electric wiring for my Audi Q5?
On the Audi Q5, we always fit Vehicle Specific Wiring as standard. Aftermarket wiring is unsuitable because the car has built-in towing safety features such as Trailer Stability Control. With aftermarket wiring, these safety features would not be activated, and safety would be compromised. All of the prices shown above include the vehicle specific wiring, and we also re-code your vehicle to activate all the new features.
Will it need a bumper cut?
No bumper cut is required on the standard trim on the Audi Q5; however, the vehicle bumper needs to be removed for the duration of the fitment. Please note that different trims may require a modification; if you are unsure if this applies to your car, contact our sales team for further information.
