Introduction  - Loading - During your trip - Volvo XC60 Owners Manual - Volvo XC60

The load carrying capacity of your vehicle is determined by factors such as the number of passengers, the amount of cargo, the weight of any accessories that may be installed, etc.

To increase loading space, the rear seat backrests can be folded down, see page 87.

When loading the cargo area, keep the following in mind:

Х Load objects in the cargo area against the backrest whenever possible.

Х Unstable loads can be secured to the load anchoring eyelets with straps or web lashings to help keep them from shifting.

Х Stop the engine and apply the parking brake when loading or unloading long objects. The gear selector can be knocked out of position by long loads, which could set the vehicle in motion.

WARNING
Х Stop the engine, put the gear selector in P, and apply the parking brake when loading or unloading long objects.
Х The vehicle's driving characteristics may change depending on the weight and distribution of the load.
Х A 44-pound (20 kg) object produces a force of 2,200 pounds (1,000 kg) in a head-on collision at 30 mph (50 km/h).
Х The cargo area and rear seat should not be loaded to a level higher than 2 in.
(5 cm) below the upper edge of the rear side windows. Objects placed higher than this level could impede the function of the Inflatable Curtain.
