Recommended Bike Rack for 2017 VW eGolf

Question:

HI, I saw your video on the hitch installation for the Golf GTI. Would this be the same hitch to use on a VW egolf, if not which hitch should I order? It will only be used for a bicycle carrier. Thanks

Unfortunately there is not a trailer hitch receiver compatible with your 2017 VW eGolf model from any of our manufacturers. The Electric version is a different fit that they haven't completely figured out at this time. That will limit you to a trunk mounted rack which will limit your options slightly, but there are some really good options available that will fit your vehicle.

To carry your bikes, I recommend the Malone Hanger 3 Bike Rack - Trunk Mount - Adjustable Arms # MPG2139. This will fit well and by design will protect your spoiler. It also has the integrated lock that will allow you the security that some other racks don't offer as an integrated option.

You may also be interested in an adapter bar like # 64005 for any bike frames that don't have a top frame rail for level transport as well as the Softride Soft Hook-and-Loop Tie Down for Bike Racks # SR18679 to keep the front wheel in line with the frame when transporting.
