Best Bike Rack Option for 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack


What is your recommendation for carrying bikes on a VW Golf Alltrack Wagon?


Expert Reply:

Hitch bike racks are the best route. They give you the most secure rack that is easy to load/unload that also doesn't touch any portion of the vehicle's painted surface.

The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Thule Roadway 2 part # TH912XTR. 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.

For a hitch you then would want the part # 24949 which has been confirmed as a fit for your 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack.

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.
