Product Details



Volvo XC90 Towbar - Retractable, 2 Inch Square Profile - Class III

This folding trailer hitch was introduced by Volvo especially for the North American Market, and eliminates the need to stretch underneath your car to detach the tow hitch. Simply pressing a button in the luggage compartment folds the towbar out, and a hand motion positions the tow bar in a locked position.

A light indicator on the button indicates when the towbar is locked for increased safety, and a warning message is shown in the car's instrument cluster when the towbar is unlocked.

The trailer module manages the electronic communication between the car and the trailer, and the light control function in the car's display allows the driver to check the lighting by illuminating the trailer lights in sequence.

Any error with the trailer's direction indicators or brake lights during driving is communicated by the trailer module to the driver immediately. The towbar is also equipped with Volvo's Trailer Stability Assist Technology (TSA), and interacts with your car's DSTC system. If the trailer begins to sway back and forth at speeds exceeding 30mph, TSA has the ability to brake one or more wheels to regain stability and maintain control of the trailer.

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.
