Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack For 2019 Acura MDX


Hello, I have 2019 MDX Hybrid. Want to use a hitch for mounting a bike rack. Will this fit my vehicle with a full size spare P245/50R20?


Expert Reply:

We do have hitches that fit the 2019 Acura MDX but the full size spare tire does need to be removed. The P245/50R20 wheel has a 20 inch diameter and all of the hitches available for your vehicle only install with 18 inch or smaller wheel.

I recommend the Curt Class III Hitch part # C13146 because it provides the most ground clearance when carrying a bike rack on the Acura. You have about 14-1/2 inches from the top of the hitch receiver tube to the ground. It is a custom fit hitch that does not require any drilling with a concealed cross tube design. The only visible portion of the hitch on the Acura is the hitch receiver square. I have attached a photo of what that looks like and an installation video.

If you need a bike rack for the Acura MDX, I recommend the Yakima FullSwing part # Y02465. The Yakima FullSwing is a great option because it swings away from the vehicle and provides full rear cargo area access with the bikes on the rack. This is helpful when you need to get to your cooler or other cargo in the back of the Acura; you don't have to remove the bike rack or the bikes to get to it. Most bike racks that provide rear cargo access, like a tilt-away bike rack, require the bikes to be removed to tilt. The locks are included with the bike rack so there is not a need to purchase locks.
