Volvo XC40 Recharge 2022 with Tow Trust detachable towbar

This Volvo XC40 detachable tow bar was fitted at our premises in Horndean, near Havant in Hampshire. We fitted a Tow Trust towbar and Right Connections 13 pin dedicated electrics which is 'full function' for towing a caravan and powering the fridge and leisure battery while driving.


Using a vehicle-specific wiring kit maintains the vehicle warranty.

The wiring kit features include:


  • Bulb failure monitoring - the trailer indicators are integrated into the vehicle's bulb fail system, alerting the driver to a trailer bulb failure through a notification on the dash. 

  • Trailer Stability Programme - this safety feature is an extension of the vehicle's Electronic Stability Programme. Using sensors built into the vehicle, it detects any "snaking" from the trailer and brings it back under control by applying the brakes individually on the car.

  • Fog cut-out - the vehicle fog light is deactivated when towing to avoid glare from the fog light reflecting back into the car. 

The detachable tow bar option is really neat on this Volvo and is easy to attach like we've shown in the video.
