The purpose of a bumper is the absorb and disperse impact when in a collision. It is designed to help keep you safe and minimize the impact from the car accident.
Compare this to being rear ended with a trailer hitch. A trailer hitches main use is of course to help tow object, not absorb and minimize the force from an auto accident. The trailer hitch is directly joined to the cars frame.
This means that if you have two similar car accidents with one car having a bumper and the other a trailer hitch, the car with the trailer hitch is going to take more force, even though the damage to the car might not look as intense at the damage to the car with the bumper.
