Trailer Hitch for 2016 Volkswagen Golf R-Line TDI with Dual-Left Exhaust


Hi guys, I have a 2016 Golf R-Line TDI. It has the looks of the R but a Diesel engine. The exhaust system is of course different with a double pipe end on the left not double twin as the R, nor single twin as the GTI. The fascia is very similar to the R fascia, I think it is lower les distance to the floor compared to the GTI fascia. Do you have any experience on this? Which one would you recommend? Thanks!


Expert Reply:

Draw-Tite confirmed their Class I hitch # 24975 fits and Curt confirmed their similar hitch # C11564 also fits your Golf's exhaust configuration. Both hitches share the same capacities and both will be a fairly involved installation but neither requires drilling. Both include all the required mounting hardware.

If your intended use is to support a hitch bike rack like # TH903202 or cargo carrier like # C18145 then I suggest the Draw-Tite since it does not require use of support strap # 18050 as the Curt does.
