For a hitch to use with a bike rack on your 2021 Audi Q3, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # DT68MR. The Draw-Tite Trailer hitch involves an easier installation and is a more economic choice than the competitor Stealth hitches we have available for the 2021 Audi Q3. The Draw-Tite Trailer hitch comes with all hardware needed for installation and involves a bolt-on installation process without the need for extra drilling or welding.

The Draw-Tite hitch will allow you to transport a bike rack even if you don't plan on towing. The higher-rated 2-inch receiver will open the door for a lot more options when it comes to choosing hitch-mounted accessories due to the increased maximum weight rating. If you would like a bike rack recommendation for how many bikes you plan on transporting, I would be happy to make you a recommendation.

Absolutely! If you want to transport a single bike on your 2021 Audi Q3, I recommend the Yakima SingleSpeed Bike Rack for 1 Bike - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount # Y02481. The SingleSpeed will fit your Draw-Tite Hitch # DT68MR and allow you to safely secure the bike at the wheels using the bike rack's ratcheting hooks. The SingleSpeed also includes Single Key System locks to deter theft.

If you are looking to transport 2-4 bikes that is compatible with the Draw-Tite hitch, I recommend the Curt 4 Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount - Tilting # C18087. The great thing about the Curt 4 Bike Platform Rack is that two of the bike's positions can be removed if you only plan on transporting 1 or 2 bikes. This way, the rack won't be as bulky when setting up and transporting.
