Volvo XC90: Roof loads and load carriers - LOADING, STORAGE AND PASSENGER COMPARTMENTVolvo XC90: Roof loads and load carriers

Volvo-developed load carriers are recommended for carrying loads on the roof of the vehicle.

Volvo load carriers are specially designed to help prevent damage to your vehicle and help ensure maximum safety while driving. Volvo load carriers are available from authorized Volvo retailers.

Carefully follow the installation instructions provided with the load carriers.

  • Distribute the load evenly throughout the load carriers. Place heavier cargo at the bottom of the load.
  • Check periodically to ensure that the load carriers and load are properly secured. Secure the load firmly using tie straps or similar.
  • If the load is longer than the vehicle, such as a canoe or kayak, attach the towing eyelet in its front outlet and secure the tie straps in it.
  • The vehicle's wind resistance and fuel consumption increase with the size of the load.
  • Drive smoothly. Avoid rapid acceleration, hard braking and fast cornering.

WARNING

The vehicle's center of gravity and driving characteristics are altered by roof loads.

Follow the vehicle's specifications regarding weights and maximum permitted load.
