Has anybody had a towbar fitted to their T-Cross, it is not currently a factory fit option, but need one for my bike rack.

Can a dealer fit them or do you need to go to a specialist. Strange that VW don't offer this option as they will sell you a towbar mounted bike rack and also looks to be an option on the polo.

There isn't a factory fit towbar unfortunately but there is a dealer fit option, either fixed or detachable. See attached screenshot of the accessories page of brochure.

Asked about towbar on a new t-cross - told the dealer is not allowed to deliver a new t-cross with the towbar fitted, due to emissions or fuel consumption regs.
Buyer has to take delivery of the car , and return it at least 24 hours later for fitment !

I need a tow bar for bike rack, this would be a big inconvenience having to take a new car back for the tow bar to be fitted after delivery. Dealer did not advise of this when I was discussing my spec, which included tow bar option.

VW don't half make life difficult when trying to spec and order a car, why can't it be a factory fitted option.

Is this again VW trying to fiddle the figures and get around legislation!.

The tow bar exists! Link to YouTube video clearly showing one on a Dutch, I think, showroom model.

If you've specced it they will fit it at the dealership before handover

This is one of the reasons that I have not ordered a T Cross yet, can't get a definitive answer from dealer, much rather have one factory fitted than dealer fitted.

Currently waiting to see what new Skoda Kamiq offers as on the same platform as T Cross, although prefer the look of the TCross.

Just had the removable towbar fitted. I got the dealer to include it as part of the deal when I ordered the car.
Took the garage a whole day to fit as internal trims and panels had to be removed to install wiring harnesses etc and the didnt want ro rush it !
Easier to install and remove than the one I had on the Yeti . No removeable panel in the bumper to fiddle with.
Also compared to Yeti_
just a storage bag - no stowage space built into tool storage.
no 13 to 7 pin adapter included.
Anyway pleased with the result and service from dealer

In Sweden the tow bar was available as factory fitted option when I ordered the car. Weird :p
