Trailer Hitch recommendations?

Post by Motobrewmaster » Sun Dec 09, 2018 3:52 am

Hello XC40 people. We just picked up our XC40 T5 today and are getting used to it. We have a 2005 XC70 which we use to tow a trailer once in awhile.

Come spring we intend to let our daughter drive the XC70 so that means occasionally we will need to pull a trailer with the XC40. Therefore I need to install a hitch. Has anyone installed a hitch on their XC40 yet?

I found these but would like to hear others experiences/thoughts first.

Thanks in advance for your input. Cheers, Brew

I checked out the Blue Ox website and did not see any hitches available for the XC40 yet.

I just had one installed in the U.S. brand name is Draw Tite 2”. Here’s a link to the hitches available for the 2019 xc40: https://www.draw-tite.com/products/trai ... abhF%7C9in

We decided the best option was to go with the Volvo hitch. Here are some pictures of the install.
Pros - High quality, fit is perfect, integrated into the Volvo computer for road control during towing.
Cons - Expensive $$$$$
