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 "FIX4BIKEĀ®" system. It allows the installation of future accessories specially prepared for "FIX4BIKEĀ®".

For complete towbar installation, the Trailer Stability Assist (TSA) function is activated. The task of Trailer Stability Assist (TSA) is to stabilise a car with a connected trailer in situations where the car/trailer combination starts to snake. The function is part of the ESC stability system1.

Trailer Stability Assist (TSA) constantly monitors the car's movements, especially laterally. If snaking is detected, individual wheel braking occurs, which provides a stabilising effect on the car/trailer combination. This is usually enough for the driver to regain control of the car. If snaking is not suppressed despite the first engagement of Trailer Stability Assist (TSA), the car/trailer combination is braked by all wheels, combined with a reduction in the engine's driving force. When snaking is gradually suppressed and the car/trailer combination is stable again, the system cancels the regulation and the driver regains full control of the car.

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.
