Op. No.: 89208 89204

A towing device especially developed for the North American market. It is easy to remove the ball section by removing a pin. This makes room for Volvo's towbar-mounted accessories.

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 requirements.

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.

The towbar consists of three main parts: cross member, ball holder and a 2" diameter ball. The vehicle is prepared for installation in the bodywork. The towbar comes complete and ready to be installed.

The towbar is treated in several stages to provide excellent protection for corrosion resistance.

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