Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2017 VW Golf GTI  


C11412 Fit 2017 GTI?


Expert Reply:

Yes, the Curt Class I Receiver Hitch # C11412 referenced in your question is confirmed to fit your 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI. This is custom designed for this vehicle and will use existing holes in the frame for installation, so no drilling will be required.

This is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening and a tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds. I have attached the written installation details that you can look through.

If you are looking to get a hitch-mounted bike rack, you will just need to make sure the one you choose is compatible with Class I trailer hitches. Also keep in mind that Class I trailer hitches can support a maximum of 2 bikes with a bike rack. I recommend looking at the Swagman XTC-2 Platform Rack # S64670. This is a great and sturdy platform style rack that can transport up to 2 bikes at 35 pounds each. The rack features a shank with a rise to provide better ground clearance and the upright arm can fold down for easy storage when not in use. Locks can be added with # S46031 to secure the rack and your bikes to your vehicle.

I have attached a video demonstration on this rack along with a link that will take you to our available selection of Class I bike racks that you can look through.
