Trailer Hitch for a 2013 Subaru Impreza 5-Door WRX with Factory Quad Exhaust


Which trailer hitch should I use for my 2013 wrx wagon with OEM cat back quad exhaust. Will Curt trailer hitch # C11120 work? I know it works for quad exhaust but not sure about cat back. If so will I have to cut any of the plastic body?


Expert Reply:

Curt trailer hitch # C11120 is the right hitch for you. It will fit your 2013 Subaru Impreza WRX wagon with quad exhaust. CAT in CAT back is catalytic converter. Back means that the part of the exhaust starting behind the catalytic converter(s) back to the exhaust tips. If it is all factory exhaust then you will not have a problem!

There is some trimming of the lower rear fascia (not visible) where the receiver will be. I have included a trim diagram along with a link to the instructions that show this for you.

If you want to use the hitch for an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier then you have to make sure the accessory is rated for use with a Class I trailer hitch. Also, with a bike rack, you are limited to 2 bikes maximum on a Class I hitch.

Curt also says you have to use stabilization strap # 18050 when using this hitch for any non-trailer load (such as a bike rack or cargo carrier) per their warranty requirements. I have linked the Class I compatible 2-bike racks and cargo carriers for you.
