View Full Version : Towbar for SV

05-12-2014, 11:48 PM
Not many threads yet for SV. Hopefully someone can help with towbars. The Honest John review of the SV mentioned their review car came with a factory fit towbar that swung down and clicked into place. A friend has a similar factory fit towbar on his Passat and it works really well. Possibly VW in the UK do not as yet see fit to offer this excellent piece of kit even although it is obviously available in other markets. I know a towbar can be fitted at the supplying dealer but an item like this is much better fitted at the factory. The UK Touran can be specified with a factory fit bar so why not the Golf/Golf SV?
If anyone has any info/thoughts I would greatly appreciate your input.

The only tow bar that was manufactured for the golf and golf Sv is either a detachable flange or Swann neck due to it causing interference with the active parking sensors.

The VW UK configurator is showing an optional swivelling towbar for the SV at 695. If you are still specifying a new car, has your dealer told you this isn't available?
