VW Touareg

A variety of Volkswagen Touareg towbars for all occasions

The new 2018 onwards Volkswagen Touareg is one of the best cars to tow with. It has superior features such as Dynamic all-wheel steering, Air Suspension, Active Roll Stabilisation and different driving modes. How do all these help with towing? The dynamic all-wheel steering allows the rear wheels steer along with the front wheels which gives you more control, increasing your driving stability whilst towing something heavy like a caravan.

Air suspension is perfect when towing a cycle carrier, trailer or even horse box. The air suspension has 3 settings, Comfort, Normal and Sport. When you need that extra ground clearance you can raise the vehicle to ensure your cycle carrier lifts up higher from the ground too. Likewise, when towing a trailer or horse box you may need to lower the vehicle for loading or unloading.

The Touareg also has cutting-edge 4MOTION technology which powers each wheel independently. Which means when you are towing on uneven ground your wheels will still get traction. These driving modes also controls features such as accelerator sensitivity and gear changing, another bonus when towing on uneven ground with caravan in tow.

At Towbar Express, we’re not tied to one particular supplier, so our Volkswagen Touareg towbars will be the perfect fit for your car. Each towbar is tailored to the exact fixing points as appropriate to the model of your car, and are Type Approved as necessary.

Wide range of towbars for premium VW cars

As one of the ultimate off-road cars, the Volkswagen Touareg is a superb choice. Its off-road prowess is second to none, making it a wise choice for outdoorsy types. The new model Volkswagen Touareg handles like a dream over bumpy country lanes and is over 20% lighter than its predecessor.

What’s my Towing Capacity?
VW Bumper Details

The Volkswagen Touareg is the perfect tow car, with a maximum towing weight of up to 3500kg, and a maximum nose weight up to 140kg. The high towing weights make it an ideal vehicle for towing large caravans and horse boxes.

Which Towbar is best for my vehicle?

Towbars for the VW Touareg are only available in either fixed flange ball or detachable swan neck options. If you’re into aesthetics, then we recommend the detachable swan neck towbars, as they’re becoming increasingly popular all over the UK and Europe thanks to their neat appearance, without compromising on pulling power.

Will it need a bumper cut?

You’ll find both flange towbars and detachable swan neck towbars for the Volkswagen Touareg in this section. Our towbars are suitable for cycle carriers, bumper guards and other accessories including tow balls and towing electrical adapters Depending on the exact model of your car, the VW Touareg usually has either a pre-cut hole hidden on the bumper, as in the photo below, or there will be a removable clip-in panel to hide a detachable towbar when the neck is removed. This makes a very discreet towbar fitment because there is nothing at all to see once the detachable towbar neck is removed.

Which Electric Socket for my vehicle?

There are 3 electric socket options used in the. UK; Single 7 Pin electrics (12N), Twin 7 Pin electrics (12N & 12S), and 13 Pin electrics.

The 7 Pin option provides power from the Towbar to the lights on a trailer or caravan. If you're only going to be towing a trailer this is all you need. You can tow a caravan using only single electrics, but the interior functions of the caravan, such as the fridge, wouldn't have power to them. You will need an adaptor if your caravan has 13 pin electrics. 13 Pin Electrics have been standard in most other European countries for some time. This is replacing the 2 separate sockets (Twin) currently used in the UK. The 13-pin socket is essentially the two 7 pin sockets merged in to one. All caravans manufactured in the UK from 2008 are fitted with an ISO 13 pin connector as standard. This system uses one socket with 13 pins inside, instead of the traditional two separate 7 pin sockets.

Universal or Dedicated Wiring?

There are two ways that towbar wiring can be installed on your car. It can be installed using either universal aftermarket wiring, or using what is known as vehicle specific, or dedicated wiring.

Universal Wiring is a lower cost option than vehicle specific towbar wiring, however it does have some compromises as a result. Universal towbar wiring does provide all the lighting functions that are needed to keep you legal while towing your trailer or caravan. However, it doesn't provide the additional benefits provided by vehicle specific towbar wiring.

Vehicle Specific Wiring, sometimes known as 'dedicated wiring looms' or 'plug in kits', are becoming ever more popular for towbar wiring installation. To put it simply this is the way the job should be done. Each kit is designed specifically for the vehicle that it is fitted to, and rather than soldering or using 'Scotch Locks' to connect the towbar wiring, which is the case with universal aftermarket wiring, these kits interface with the vehicle systems in the same way as the vehicle manufacturer intended.
