bikes almost colour coded with the car, looks great. Good to know that a Tow bar is available for the UP! if it was ever needed.

Can the Up tow trailers?

Does anyone know if it has the capacity to do so?

With two bikes on the rack, do the front wheels on the Up! stay on the ground? ;)

just remove the water bottles from the bikes and the car's front wheels drop back down...

The up! is not approved to tow, and it does not have the relevant weight posted on the VIN plate. You would get clobbered by the DVSA if caught, and if you had an accident whilst towing, it would be highly unlikely your insurer would pay out.

Where did you get the towbar fitted?According to my dealer, VW does not supply one for the UP. :(

Your's looks great and that's exactly what I want to do.

Cheers!
