Mitsubishi Space Star Towbars

Mitsubishi Space Star Towing Specifics

The Mitsubishi Space Star was first introduced in 1998 by the Japanese manufacturer as an MPV, designed with plenty of towing capabilities. We will cover the towing specifics of this model below.

Mitsubishi Space Star Towbar Electrics Kits

It is recommended that all tow bars fitted to a Mitsubishi Space Star vehicle are done so with a dedicated electrics kit, rather than a universal electrics kit. A dedicated electrics kit not only ensures all modern features such as; trailer stability and parking sensors are functional, but also helps to keep your vehicle's warranty unaffected.

We offer both universal and dedicated electrics kits for the Mitsubishi Space Star vehicle towbars, but be aware that universal electrics kits can invalidate any manufacturer warranty your vehicle has and may also require a bypass relay.

Check your Mitsubishi warranty for more information.

Bypass Relays

All tow bars for the Mitsubishi Space Star models will not require a bypass relay, if universal electrics are fitted.

A bypass relay works by powering what it is you are towing through transferring power straight from the battery instead of taking too much current away from your vehicle.

Whereas a dedicated system works in harmony with your vehicle's ECU and all of its functions.


This is the coding of the ECU to accept the dedicated system, this updates your vehicles software to run smoothly with the new towbar.

All Mitsubishi Space Star models will not require coding.

Coding is used to update your vehicles software in order for it to run coherently with the new towbar through the dedicated electrics.

Bumper Cuts

Depending on the towbar, Mitsubishi Space Star models will require a bumper cut. A bumper cut is when a fraction of the vehicle's rear bumper is cut in order to fit the towbar.

All the Mitsubishi Space Star models have towbars that require non visible and visible bumper cuts.

Nose Weight

Nose weight is the amount of weight pushing down on the tow ball, it is important not to exceed the nose weight set on the tow bar, failure to do so could damage the car chassis and/or tow bar mounting points. Nose weight varies depending on the towbar you choose and are displayed under each tow bar below.

All Mitsubishi Space Star models have a nose weight of up to 75kg.

Towing Weight

Towing weight is the weight that a Mitsubishi Space Star vehicle can tow safely, without any risk of damaging the vehicle. Towing weights are bar specific and displayed below each towbar.

For Mitsubishi Space Star vehicles, the towbars have a towing weight capacity of up to 1400kg.

You will need to check the towing limit for your Mitsubishi Space Star vehicle model as it may not be able to tow up to the weight limit that the tow bar can tow.
