Trailer Hitch for 2012 Subaru Impreza to Allow Use of Thule T2 Pro Bike Rack


Will Thule T2 pro mount with this hitch on a 2012 Impreza 5dr with single exhaust? With the “flush mount” of this hitch I worry that the T2 pro will have an issue with the pin that is supposed to go into the hole on the right of the receiver.


Expert Reply:

There are trailer hitches that will allow you to use a Thule T2 Pro on your 2012 Subaru Impreza but the EcoHitch Invisi Trailer Hitch # 306-X7211 is not a good option. The reason for that is this hitch installs inside the bumper and requires you to remove the small knockout panel on the rear of your single-exhaust, 5-door Impreza. Further, this hitch only allows the use of bike racks with stingers/shanks that extend a maximum of 2-3/8" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the end of the stinger/shank.

I highly recommend using the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # DT24959 for your 2012 Subaru Impreza 5-door Wagon, which sits below the bumper and will allow you to use the Thule T2 Pro XTR # TH23JV.

This is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver and both of the T2 Pro bike racks which I linked above are compatible with this hitch for your '12 Impreza.

I have added a link to a video install of the Draw-Tite hitch as well as video reviews of the Thule T2 Pro for you to take a look at.
