Volkswagen Polo Service & Repair Manual: Technical Requirements

Factory-Installed Trailer Hitch

If the vehicle was already delivered from the factory with a trailer hitch, all of the technical and legal requirements for towing a trailer have already been taken into account.
Note that a »13-pin« trailer socket has been installed in many models since the beginning of 1988 instead of the conventional »7-pin« socket. This new socket allows additional electrical consumers in the trailer to be connected, such as back-up lamps. This was not possible with the previous 7-pin socket.
If the trailer that will be hitched has a »7-pin« connector, an adapter cable available from authorized Volkswagen dealers can be used.
   

Retrofitted Trailer Hitch

Note the following if the vehicle will be retrofitted with a trailer hitch:
The trailer hitch is a safety-related component. Only use approved hitches that were designed to meet the vehicle requirements. Trailer hitches from the Volkswagen Accessories program are recommended because they are identical to the hitches installed at the factory. The installation instructions provided with these trailer hitches have also been approved by Volkswagen.
