The towbar is tested for the maximum towing weight and ball pressure, but this can be lower depending on the car version. For precise information, check car version and refer to the car's owner's manual.


For the V70 Bi-Fuel, we recommend fixed towbar, as it is not possible to ensure collision-safe storage of the towball on the detachable towing bracket.
