Towbar and trailer

Towing bracket*

Updated 7/23/2018

The car can be equipped with a towing bracket that makes it possible to tow e.g. a trailer after the car.

There may be different towing bracket variants available for the car; contact a Volvo dealer for more information.

For information on towing capacity and towball load, see the section "Towing capacity and towball load".

Important

When the engine is switched off, the constant battery voltage to the trailer connector can be switched off automatically so as not to drain the starter battery.

Important

The towball needs regular cleaning and lubrication with grease in order to prevent wear.

Note

When a hitch with a vibration damper is used, the towball must not be lubricated.

This also applies when fitting a bicycle rack that is clamped in around the towball.

Note

If the car is equipped with a towing bracket, there is no rear mounting for a towing eye.
