With the electrically folding towbar you do not have to stretch beneath the car to detach or remove the towbar. Pressing a button in the luggage compartment fold the towbar out. A simple hand movement positions the towbar in a locked position.

For increased safety there is a light indicator on the button that indicates that the towbar is locked. If the towbar is unlocked a warning message is shown in the car's combined instrument panel.

The trailer module manages the electronic communication between the vehicle and trailer.

With the help of the light control function in the car's display, the lamps on the trailer illuminate in a sequence which makes it easier to check the lighting.

If, when driving, there is a fault or problem with the trailer's direction indicators or brake lights, the trailer module immediately sends the driver information.

The towbar is equipped with the "Fix4Bike" system. It allows the installation of future accessories specially prepared for "Fix4Bike".

The towbar is equipped with Volvo's Trailer Stability Assist-technology (TSA) and interacts with your Volvo's DSTC-system1. If the trailer starts to sway back and forth at speeds in excess of 30 mph (50 km/h), TSA can brake one or more wheels to regain stability and maintain control.

Each Volvo towbar has been designed for your Volvo. They are an integral part of the car's body and have been tested to ensure that they meet the most stringent safety and function demands.
