All you need to know about towbars for Volvo C30
Volvo first introduced the C30 into their range in 2006. The Volvo C30 is available as a or Coupe. So you know you are installing the right towbar on your Volvo C30, we have looked at towing capacity, electrical kits, bumper cuts and more for each variation of Volvo C30 below.
Volvo C30 Coupe() Towbars
The Volvo C30 Coupe() was first released in 2006. To determine which variant of Volvo C30 you have, check your vehicle logbook. This will ensure you purchase the correct towbar.
Volvo C30 Coupe() Nose Weight
Coupe() models made vehicles made after 2006 have a minimum nose weight of 40 kg and a maximum nose weight of 100 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.
Volvo C30 Coupe() Electric Kits
Electrical kits connect the electrics in your Coupe() to the electrics on your trailer, bike rack or caravan so your lights are still visible.
Electric kits for Volvo C30 Coupe()
We would always recommend having a dedicated electrics kit installed, where possible. This syncs with modern computer functions of your Coupe(), 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 Coupe() 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.
Volvo C30 Coupe() Software Update
We will alert you as to whether your Coupe() 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 Coupe() can accurately co-ordinate with your towbar electrics.
Software updates can take place at your local Volvo 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.
Volvo C30 Coupe() Bumper Cuts
Coupe() models made vehicles made after 2006 will not 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.
Volvo C30 Coupe() Towing Capacity
Coupe() models made vehicles made after 2006 have a towing capacity of 1500 kg to 1600 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 Coupe() 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 Coupe() may differ, so you should always go by the specific towing weight of your vehicle, indicated above.
