Volvo S60: Roof loads

Using load carriers

Load carriers are available as Volvo accessories. Observe the following points when in use:

  • To avoid damaging your vehicle and to achieve maximum safety when driving, we recommend using the load carriers that Volvo has developed especially for your vehicle.
  • Volvo-approved removable roof racks are designed to carry the maximum allowable roof load for this vehicle: 220 lbs (100 kg). For non-Volvo roof racks, check the manufacturer's weight limits for the rack.
  • Never exceed the rack manufacturer's weigh limits and never exceed the maximum rated roof load of 220 lbs (100 kg).
  • Avoid single-point loads. Distribute loads evenly.
  • Place heavier cargo at the bottom of the load.
  • Secure the cargo correctly with appropriate tie-down equipment.
  • Check periodically that the load carriers and load are properly secured.
  • Remember that the vehicle's center of gravity and handling change when you carry a load on the roof.
  • The vehicle's wind resistance and fuel consumption will increase with the size of the load.
  • Drive smoothly. Avoid rapid starts, fast cornering and hard braking.
