Helpful Expert Reply:

The hitch I recommend for your 2016 Subaru Forster which is a confirmed fit for the XT model is the Draw-Tite # 75876; which will not require you to use stabilizing straps for non-trailer loads like the Curt hitch does. The Draw-Tite is a Class III, 2" receiver with a towing capacity of 3,500 lbs and tongue weight capacity of 525 lbs.

Should you want to tow with your Forester, you would need a 4-pole connector, which you would get with wiring harness # 118467. For a ball mount, I recommend checking out Ball Mount Kit # 989900, which will fulfill your towing needs in one tidy package; a pair of ball mounts to give you the appropriate rise or drop, a 1-7/8” ball, a 2” ball and a pin and clip.

I've added links to videos of the hitch and wiring harness for you to check out.
