Audi Q2 Towing Specifics
The Audi Q2 was launched in 2016 by the German manufacturer as a mini SUV vehicle, offering substantial towing abilities. There is only the first and current generation available on the market. We will cover the towing specifics of this generation below.
Audi Q2 Towbar Electrics Kits
It is recommended that all tow bars fitted to an Audi Q2 are done so with a dedicated electrics kit, rather than a universal electrics kit. A dedicated electrics kit not only ensures all modern features such as; trailer stability and parking sensors are functional but also helps to keep your vehicle's warranty unaffected.
We offer both universal and dedicated electrics kits for any Audi Q2 towbars, but be aware that universal electrics kits can invalidate any manufacturer warranty your vehicle has and may also require a bypass relay.
Check your Audi warranty for more information.
All tow bars for the Audi Q2 range will require a bypass relay if universal electrics are fitted.
A bypass relay works by powering what it is you are towing through transferring power straight from the battery instead of taking too much current away from your vehicle.
Whereas a dedicated system works in harmony with your vehicle's ECU and all of its functions.
This is the coding of the ECU to accept the dedicated system, this updates your vehicles software to run smoothly with the new towbar. Audi Q2 vehicles will require coding.
Coding is used to update your vehicles software in order for it to run coherently with the new towbar through the dedicated electrics.
Depending on the towbar, Audi Q2 vehicles may require a bumper cut. A bumper cut is when a fraction of the vehicle's rear bumper is cut in order to fit the towbar. You have a choice of visible, non-visible and no bumper cuts for the tow bars offered with the Audi Q2 range.
Nose weight is the amount of weight pushing down on the tow ball, it is important not to exceed the nose weight set on the tow bar, failure to do so could damage the car chassis and/or tow bar mounting points. For any Audi Q2 vehicle manufactured, the lowest nose weight is 75kg and the highest nose weight is 100kg. Nose weight varies depending on the towbar you choose and are displayed under each tow bar below.
Towing weight is the weight that an Audi Q2 tow bar can tow safely, without any risk of damaging the vehicle. Towing weights are bar specific and displayed below each towbar.
For the Audi Q2 range, the towing weight capacity is between 1850kg to 2200kg depending on which towbar you chose.
You will need to check the towing limit for your Q2 vehicle model as it may not be able to tow up to the weight limit that the tow bar can tow.
