Golf Sportvan Towing Specifications

The Golf Sportvan was launched in 2013, with towbars arriving on the market in 2014. Based on the VW Group MQB platform, the Golf SV is the third variant of the seventh-generation Golf, alongside the hatchback and the Estate, and has a look that clearly follows the design of its siblings, with strong elements of Volkswagen’s design ‘DNA’. At 4,338 mm long, the new SV is 134 mm longer than the Golf Plus that it replaces, 83 mm longer than the Golf hatchback, and 224 mm shorter than the Golf Estate.

Volkswagen Golf Sportvan Towbar electric kits

We recommend that all tow bars fitted to a Volkswagen Golf Sportvan's are fitted with a dedicated electrics kit, this not only helps to ensure all modern features, such as trailer stability, parking sensors function correctly, but also ensures that the vehicles manufacturer’s warranty is not invalidated. A quick look at Volkswagen's warranty page confirms that Golf Sportvan's produced after 2016 will possibly have a manufacturers warranty active.
  • A 2-year unlimited mileage manufacturers warranty.
  • A further 1 year / 60,000 miles (whichever is soonest) warranty.
This means you're covered for a total of 3 years or up to 60,000 miles, whichever comes first used cars purchased from Volkswagen come with 12 months warranty. Volkswagen Warranty information. We do of course offer, Golf Sportvan universal electrics kits, however as stated these will invalidate any manufacturer warranty you may have.

Bypass Relays

Volkswagen Golf Sportvan will require a bypass relay when universal electrics are fitted.

Bypass relays are used to ensure that the kit does not present faults on the dashboard. A bypass relay helps the universal kit hide from your vehicle ECU and functions so as not to put faults on the dashboard hence the name “BYPASS”

A dedicated system works in harmony with your vehicles ECU and all of its functions.

Bumper cuts

We offer all three options for towbars for the Sportsvan, No Cut, None Visible, and Visible, a bumper cut is not always required.

Nose weight

Nose weight is the amount of weight pushing down on the tow ball, it is important to not 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 the Volkswagen Golf Sportvan, the nose range varies only slightly over the different tow bars. The minimum capacity nose weight is 80kg, and the maximum capacity nose weight is110kg, nose weights are displayed under each tow bar below.

Towing weight

Towing weight is the weight that the Volkswagen Golf Sportvan towbars can tow safely, without damaging the vehicle, the maximum capacity towing weight is 2200kg, and the minimum capacity towing capacity is 1800kg. The towing weight is shown under each towbar, as capacities are towbar specific.  


You will need to check the towing limit for your model of Golf Sportsvan as it may not be able to tow up to the weight limit that the tow bar can tow.
