Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for 2017 Volkswagen GTI


Hi etrailer experts, Thank you for confirming the hitch for the 2017 VW GTI for another customer. There doesnt seem to be confirmation of a proper wiring harness for this vehicle... Is that correct? Do you expect one to come into existence? Thanks so much -

I checked with Curt and they do recommend the universal fit trailer wiring harness part # C56236 as a fit for your 2017 Volkswagen GTI as a fit. This is a universal fit harness though that will require some hardwiring.

The other option is the no-splice Tekonsha kit part # 119250KIT which uses sensors to tap into the taillight wiring instead of requiring splicing.

The Curt Trailer Hitch, part # C11412 is a confirmed fit as well and would work great. For a ball mount you would want the part # C45572 for a 2 inch ball or part # C45571 for a 1-7/8 inch ball.
