Availability of Bike Rack System To Fit a 2012 Volvo C70 Convertible


needs extension clearance behind bumper 9?


Expert Reply:

If you have a factory hitch on your 2012 Volvo C70 Convertible you will need to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole on the hitch to the edge of the rear bumper. This measurement will help you determine the amount of clearance you will need to install a hitch bike rack.

One of the hitch bike racks I have with the longest distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the bike rack is the Swagman Trailhead 2 Bike Rack, part # S63360. The # S63360 bike rack measures 14-1/2 inches of clearance. If this measurement is greater than the measurement you took on your car, then it'll clear your rear bumper.

I have a hitch available for a 2011 Volvo C70 convertible, but it has not been tested on a 2012 model at this time. The Curt Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # C11065, is a hitch that will bolt underneath the rear of the vehicle. Looking at the installation instructions, the hitch receiver is located underneath the bumper a few inches. I am including a link to the installation instructions on the Curt hitch.
