Volvo XC40 Towbars

Volvo XC40

The Volvo XC40 is a compact SUV that has been engineered to deliver smooth take-offs allowing driving in both city and highway to be smooth and enjoyable. Designed to give the driver the ultimate comfort and convenience with every journey, the advanced technology allows the driver to sit back and feel confident with every turn. Equipped with specialised technology, the XC40 has been designed to simplify driving.

For the explorers, the XC40 has fully integrated Google Maps that can be enabled by voice control, meaning the driver doesn't even need to take their hands off the steering wheel. With real-time traffic information at the ready and rerouting technology on hand, the navigation system allows the driver to reach their destination with minimal hassle.

Checking your VIN Plate...

Please remember to check your vehicle's towing capacity shown on the VIN plate. If your car doesn't have a towing capacity, we cannot legally fit a Towbar to your vehicle. We recommend you do this before booking, as some vehicles vary throughout make and model (even though we may show some available).

More about Volvo XC40 Towbars

The Volvo XC40 has the driver and passengers' safety at the forefront of the vehicle's design, with numerous integrated systems on board to make each journey safe.

The 360-degree parking view is a great piece of technology that allows the driver to see all angles outside the vehicle. There are four cameras located around the vehicle providing a 360-degree view of the outside. This technology offers the perfect assistance when tackling tricky parking spaces now; even the scariest spaces will be easy to manoeuvre.

When reversing out of a low visibility parking space, the cross-traffic alert provides the driver to make the manoeuvre without any incident. The system can detect vehicles or pedestrians crossing behind the vehicle and apply the auto brake if required.

Tackling busy motorways can be daunting, which is why Volvo has created a safety system to support its driver through every minute. Changing lanes can be difficult, especially with blind spots providing low visibility in certain lanes; the Blind Spot Information System works with the driver by adjusting the steering if it deems there may be a risk of a collision. The system will subtly adjust steering, keeping the driver in the same lane and keeping everyone safe from an accident.

Long commutes can be challenging, and drifting can be easily done on the motorway, which is why in the Volvo XC40, a vibration will be sent through the steering wheel to help the driver to steer back into the centre of the lane. As well as keeping the vehicle centred the technology can help detect and avoid other vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists, and large animals. At first, the system will notify the driver with a warning; if this has been received, the technology will apply the auto braking and emergency steering to avoid any collisions.

What’s my Towing Capacity?

The Volvo XC40 has an approximate towing weight of 1,500KG; however, some models can tow up to 2,100KG. The best way to receive an accurate reading for your towing capacity is by checking your VIN plate that is located underneath the bonnet or on the passenger door sill.

Which Towbar is best for my Volvo XC40?

There are plenty of choices available when it comes to picking a towbar for the Volvo XC40. Towbar Express has the Fixed Flange, Fixed Swan Neck, and Detachable Swan neck towbars available.

The fixed flange towbar is more suited to those who do not wish to remove their Towbar at the end of towing. The flange style is a permanent towbar; it is fitted with a backing plate to the rear of the bar, which allows towing accessories to be added. The flange style towbar is not advised for those who have rear parking sensors as the chunkier design of the bar means there is less clearance between the Towbar and the sensors, causing interference every time you reverse. However, this style of Towbar is a great option for those who would like to add accessories to their Towbar, such as a bumper protector plate or a bolt-on cycle carrier.

The fixed swan neck towbar is a popular choice for those who want a permanent towbar but a thinner neck. The slim neck provides more clearance between the Towbar and rear parking sensors, meaning there is less chance of interference when reversing. The fixed swan neck is ALKO compatible, which means it will work alongside all caravans with ALKO stabilisers.

The detachable swan neck is most commonly purchased by drivers who have rear parking sensors, as once towing has been completed, the towbar neck can be removed, leaving the Towbar almost invisible. The Towbar is fitted with a lock and key to protect owners from theft. A detachable towbar is compatible with all ALKO stabilisers and cycle carriers attaching to the tow ball.

Will it need a bumper cut?

To have a towbar fitted to the Volvo XC40, a bumper cut will need to be made to the vehicle's undertray. This modification is listed as a non-visible cut, which means it would only be noticeable if you were to look underneath the vehicle. Due to different models and bumper trims being available for the Volvo XC40, some vehicles may need further adjustments to the bumper. Don't hesitate to contact our sales team for more details on bumper cuts for the Volvo XC40.
