Honda first introduced the FR-V into their range in 2004. The Honda FR-V is available as a or MPV. So you know you are installing the right towbar on your Honda FR-V, we have looked at towing capacity, electrical kits, bumper cuts and more for each variation of Honda FR-V below.
Honda FR-V MPV(All variants) Towbars
The Honda FR-V MPV(All variants) was first released in 2004. To determine which variant of Honda FR-V you have, check your vehicle logbook. This will ensure you purchase the correct towbar.
Honda FR-V MPV(All variants) Nose Weight
MPV(All variants) models made between 2004 and 2010 have a minimum nose weight of 90 kg and a maximum nose weight of 90 kg.
What does nose weight mean?
Nose weight is the force on the towball when a caravan or trailer is attached. Every towbar for every vehicle will have a specific nose weight for that vehicle which can differ between the age of the vehicle and the variation of the model. It is crucial that you don’t exceed the nose weight set on the towbar as this is dangerous and can decrease stability when towing.
Honda FR-V MPV(All variants) Electric Kits
Electrical kits connect the electrics in your MPV(All variants) to the electrics on your trailer, bike rack or caravan so your lights are still visible.
Electric kits for Honda FR-V MPV(All variants)
We would always recommend having a dedicated electrics kit installed, where possible. This syncs with modern computer functions of your MPV(All variants), like ABS and trailer stability, rather than just basic lighting.
Why is a dedicated kit important? Well, not only does it work with the specific features of your vehicle, but it also protects the warranty of your MPV(All variants) and works with any enhanced safety features you may have.
Of course, you can choose between a dedicated kit or a universal kit, and we do offer both, but a universal electrical kit can affect your manufacturer warranty and you might also need to install a bypass relay.
Honda FR-V MPV(All variants) Software Update
We will alert you as to whether your MPV(All variants) requires a software update when you choose your towbar electrics kit.
Does my vehicle need a software update?
Sometimes your vehicle may need a software update to accommodate your new dedicated electrical kit. This is so all of the latest computer features in your MPV(All variants) can accurately co-ordinate with your towbar electrics.
Software updates can take place at your local Honda dealership when your vehicle is in for service. Or, this can sometimes be updated at your local garage when you arrange towbar fitting through WebFit.
Honda FR-V MPV(All variants) Bumper Cuts
MPV(All variants) models made between 2004 and 2010 will require a non-visible bumper cut in order to be fitted.
Does my vehicle need a bumper cut?
Some towbar styles might require a bumper cut in order to be fitted to your vehicle. But, this is improving and newer vehicles are less likely to require a bumper cut due to better towbar designs.
Honda FR-V MPV(All variants) Towing Capacity
MPV(All variants) models made between 2004 and 2010 have a towing capacity of 1500 kg to 1500 kg.
Be sure to check the EXACT towing capacity of your vehicle before towing on your VIN plate.
What is towing capacity?
Towing capacity is the weight that your MPV(All variants) is capable of towing safely, but it can vary even across the same model of car. It is important to note that the capacity of the towbar and the towing capacity of the MPV(All variants) may differ, so you should always go by the specific towing weight of your vehicle, indicated above.
