I have 2500 km on my R-Sport so I took it easy towing today. It really felt effortless towing 2 seadoos. Pulling out was so easy, unlike my Jeep Wrangler which got wheelspin on the same ramp until I put it in 4wd the F-Pace pulled out with no issues. I really like the activity key. The waves in Lake Huron were 4-6' with a few whitecaps. I got soaked and it was so nice not to worry about losing keys or damaging them with water.

Here are some pics. The line on screen is nice. Does anyone know how to turn off the rear sensors when reversing with a trailer. Hitting the off button on the screen only reduced the beeping volume slightly

I haven't had a chance to tow with my F-Pace yet, but I know I'm going to like the fact that I can turn on the rear camera while still driving. That will be extremely useful.

I was pleasantly surprised that the 35t has a max towing capacity of 5239lbs. It's less than my old Grand Cherokee but still more than enough for most of my needs.

I have not owned my car for long but Activity key was the first add-on I ordered and not I cannot think it not having one.

Hey! They were full of gas馃構 so about 2000 lbs for seadoos and trailer. They hold 60 litres of gas each, about the same as the F-Pace. Yes you could hardly feel them.
Thanks for the compliment, I think the 22" double helix wheels really make it stand out.
Any help with turning off the backup sensors when you reverse with a trailer would be appreciated.

Towing jet skis with the F-Pace is really a breeze. It handles great on the highway and you don't even notice 2000# plus weight. Love the rear camera for backing onto the launch ramp!!!! image.jpg

Another towing adventure!!

Put my Volvo racer in storage for the winter. Towed it using a u-haul dolly and averaged 16mpg with no issues whatsoever. She pulled really strong even with 3000# plus in tow.

Last week, I towed my trailer for the first time. I know it's a little less glamorous but I was impressed with the trip. My trip was a mix of freeway and country curves, all totaling about 125 miles. During a ten mile stretch, I used Eco mode and got 29.5 mpg. The following stretch in Normal showed 33.0 mpg. Winding country roads showed 31mpg. Towed weight was under 1000 lbs. (Sorry for the inverted photo! I have no Idea why this happened. I've seen others with the same issue!)
