Recommended Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for 2017 Hyundai Ioniq


I’m looking at setting up a 2 bike carry system to go on my 2017 Hyundai Ioniq. I’m looking at the following: Curt Trailor Hitch Receiver - C11486 Thule Helium Pro 2 Bike Rack - 2xSwagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar - 64005 Will that package work on the Ioniq? Anything else I should consider? I’m thinking I might need help with the hitch installation. Thank you!

For your 2017 Hyundai Ioniq the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Class I # C11486 is a confirmed fit unless you have the all electric model. There is not a trailer hitch that will fit the model that is all electric, but the hybrid models have a fit.

With that hitch, the installation requires some underbody panel trimming but utilizes weldnuts already in the frame. I've attached an article to assist.

The Thule Helium Pro 2 Bike Rack # TH9042PRO has a locking knob that will not fit with this application because it is too close to hitch pin hole. Instead I recommend the Thule Camber Roadway 2 Bike Rack # TH9058. With this rack, I recommend the hitch pin lock # THSTL2 and a cable lock like # e98891. Then the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's, and Alternative Frame Bikes # 64005 and the Softride # SR54FR will help the bike or bikes travel better.
