    Trunk/hatch bike rack?

    Can I mount a standard rear mounted, trunk style bike rack on the Evoque?

    A little worried, as the top straps would hang onto the rear fin, which is plastic, not metal.

    2016 5-door

    I've done it with no issue. As long as you put the straps tight to the top and the pressure is on the door, the fin doesn't get any noticeable/undo pressure. However, be careful how heavy the bike it. I've heard the auto lock mechanism may be affected.
