Bike Rack Recommendation for 2017 Audi Q7 That Does Not Require Stabilizer Strap


Looking at Hitch Bike Rack Support Start, is this compatible with Audi Q7 2017 ? I ask this question due to 2 reasons: 1. Space to metal hook 2. I feel the top portion of car is plastic and not metal Please advise.

Not every vehicle has a great place to attach the stabilizer strap part # 18050 to. For your 2017 Audi Q7 your best solution would be to go with a trailer hitch that does not require that strap as that will allow you to to bypass the hassle all together. For that you would want the Draw Tite hitch part # 76076 which is a confirmed fit.

The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Thule Camber 2 part # TH9058. We asked our demo and install guys to name their favorite, most easy-to-use bike racks and this one showed up in nearly everyone's top three. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also. This will allow the bikes to be carried more level and will provide more ground clearance.
