Availability of Completely Concealed Receiver Hitch for 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI


Hello, I am wondering if the EcoHitch 306-X7375 trailer hitch will fit my 2017 GTI?


Expert Reply:

Although we do have hitch fits for your vehicle, the EcoHitch Stealth 2 inch receiver you referred to, part # 306-X7375 is not a fit for the 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI. According to EcoHitch, it's only a fit for 2018-2021 models, and unfortunately, they don't offer a stealth-style hitch for the 2017 GTI at this time.

For your 2017, EcoHitch recommends the # 306-X7309 which features a concealed crossbar but would leave the receiver tube and safety chain hooks visible.

If you want a fully concealed hitch for attaching hitch mounted accessories, Stealth Hitch offers the # SH69ZR which is compatible with your 2017 VW Golf GTI. If you were planning on towing a trailer, you'll also need the upgrade kit, part # SH34ZR which includes the trailer wiring and a ball mount that can safely be used for towing (the receiver included with the # SH69ZR is intended as a mounting point for hitch mounted accessories, not for towing).

I've linked to an install video showing the EcoHitch # 306-X7309 being installed on a 2017 VW Golf.
