Default Towing With Q30

Has anyone thought of towing with their Q30? What tow hitch is a good one and easy to install or do I need a coupling system?

Odd, I don't see a tow weight rating in the Q30 owner's manual but they mention towing and give you tips on how to do so safely. Not sure if the Q30 was meant for towing or not, or how much weight it can bear.

I was going to ask what the tow rating was but maybe call the dealer to find out first just to be safe ?

This website here has information but I would still check with dealer maybe ?

Question, what are you looking to tow? Being a vehicle of this size, fundamentally it can't be too heavy. Most I would probably do is a Seadoo trailer like this:

Just a small cargo trailer for camping equipment, has an empty weight of around 192 lbs.

Often you can push the limit a bit, but when doing that you also have to be mindful of how you drive... so using lower gears off the line and going on an incline, things like that usually position you better than those that don't think it through.

I may have found a list of the Q30's braked towing rate: https://carleasingmadesimple.com/dat...-weight-limit/

At the very least, you should be able to tow a braked weight of 2645 pounds.

Lol, seems like it. The Infiniti UK site has an optional tow bar for the Q30 but that doesn't seem to be an option elsewhere.

That might be solely due to regulation. Don't know anything about the UK market (if anyone does enlighten us, please), but for all we know their regulations could be quite lax and not as tight as they're known to be in the U.S.


At least when we (Americans) get something odds are its **** good.
