    Thanks for posting pics. I picked up my 2018 XC90 at the dealer the other day, and I couldn't believe how bad the bumper looked. I never would have bought a Volvo if I knew this was how poorly their trailer hitch integrated into the vehicle.

    Hi,

    I'm not sure I understand. Does that mean yours looks different than my pictures or that you don't care for how the factory bumper/hitch looks? I won't say it is the most elegant looking solution, but its not terrible. I for sure wouldn't make it a deal breaker by any means.

    When you have a chance, give us more info. There has to be a reason you purchased the XC90, I'm sure the hitch wasn't it. In fact, I would say if you purchased the Volvo to tow a lot (either frequency or weight), you might have had better options. I tow a small trailer every once in a while. It's light and it does fine. I mainly got the hitch option because I have a hitch mounted rack for bikes and cargo.

    Best of luck and I hope that you can over look the cover on the hitch enough to enjoy the rest of the vehicle.

    Rob

    Hi,

    I have a Yakima ridgeback bike rack and I tried to install that on my 18' XC90 with factory installed hitch. For some reason, I noticed the hitch pin hole is located on the left side (driver side) and I have hard time to put the hitch pin through as there is much less space compared with right hand side of the cutout areas. Any people have similar experience?

    Draw-Tite Hitch

    I went with the draw-tite hitch as it appeared to be higher off the ground and did not show up like the Curt. Also did not require drilling. In addition I did not have to remove the entire bumper but only the lower facia. It took a bit of work to get it back together so that everything looked good. Great price. I also added the wire harness for the four plug.

    Stealth Hitch

    Does anyone have a stealth hitch?
    That looks to be the best option around.

    Stealth Hitch

    I just installed Stealth Hitch in my 2018 XC90. It looks awesome.
    It's the combo packaged, as described here.

    Here are some pictures.
