Range Rover Sports Towing Specifics
The Range Rover Sport was first introduced in 2005 by the British manufacturer as a full-size luxury SUV, fitted with strong towing capabilities. We will cover the towing specifics of this model below.
Range Rover Sports Towbar Electrics Kits
It is recommended that all tow bars fitted to a Range Rover Sports vehicle 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 the Range Rover Sport vehicle 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 Range Rover warranty for more information.
All tow bars for the Range Rover Sports models 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.
All Range Rover Sport 2005-2009 models will not require coding.
All Range Rover Sports 2009-2013 and 2013 onwards models 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, Range Rover Sports models will 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.
All Range Rover Sports 2005-2009 and 2009-2013 models have towbars that require no bumper cuts.
All Range Rover Sport 2013 onwards models have towbars that require visible and no bumper cuts.
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. Nose weight varies depending on the towbar you choose and are displayed under each tow bar below.
All Range Rover Sports 2005-2009 and 2009-2013 models have a nose weight of up to 150kg.
All Range Rover Sport 2013 onwards models have a nose weight of 150kg up to 200kg.
Towing weight is the weight that a Range Rover Sports vehicle can tow safely, without any risk of damaging the vehicle. Towing weights are bar specific and displayed below each towbar.
For a Range Rover Sports vehicles, the towbars have a towing weight capacity of up to 3500kg.
You will need to check the towing limit for your Range Rover Sports vehicle model as it may not be able to tow up to the weight limit that the tow bar can tow.
