What is the circle next to the fake grill for? is there something hiding behind that?

They call it a "tow eye". Pop the cover off and there is or should be a threaded hole for it.

Good discussion of it in this thread:

I had been wondering this for a long time but had never asked. Thanks.

Except it's not possible to thread the actual tow hook through it, ugh...

There is an inner small hole which is off to the left a little and the socket is way off that you can't see it on the picture.
