Volkswagen Polo Owners Manual: Introduction

This chapter contains information on the following subjects:

 → Securing mounts, roof bars or load carrying system
 → Loading the load carrier system The roof of the vehicle has been designed for optimum aerodynamic effect. Therefore, conventional mounts or other load carrier systems can no longer be attached to a rain channel.

As the rain channels have been integrated in the roof for better aerodynamics, only those mounts, roof bars or load carrier systems approved by Volkswagen can be used.

When should the mounts or roof bars and load carrier system be removed?

Additional information and warnings:

WARNING

When transporting heavy or bulky objects in the load carrier system, the way the vehicle handles will change due to a shift in the centre of gravity and increased susceptibility to crosswinds.

NOTICE

Driving with fitted mounts, roof bars or load carriers will increase air resistance and thus increase fuel consumption.
