Trailer Hitch for 2019 Mazda 3 Sedan for Carrying Bike Rack


2019 mazda 3 sedan. Is there a trailer hitch that I can use to carry bikes for this car? I see a lot of stuff for the hatchback but what about for the sedan?


Expert Reply:

There is absolutely a trailer hitch that will fit your 2019 Mazda 3 Sedan and be a great way to carry bikes; what you need is the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 24982.

This hitch will install in your Mazda without drilling and will give you a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver for a bike rack; I have added some photos from the linked installation instructions which show how it will look when installed. This trailer hitch has a powder coat so it will resist corrosion and is extremely durable; so durable in fact that it comes with a lifetime warranty. It also has a 200 lb tongue weight capacity, which means the total weight of your rack and bikes can weigh no more than 200 lbs, though that is highly unlikely to be an issue since a Class 1 hitch is limited to carrying no more than 2 bikes.

You will need to use a bike rack compatible with a Class I hitch and for that I highly recommend the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 because it offers a unique and superb combination of function, convenience and style. The Sherpa 2.0 comes in your choice of colors: Black # SH12B, Pearl # SH12P, or Gray # SH12G.

The Sherpa 2.0 will install in your Mazda's hitch with the swift and simple turn of a knob, making it one of the easiest bike racks to use. This knob also works as an anti-rattle device, giving you a very quiet ride. The rack even tilts down (with the bikes loaded if need be) with the use of just a handy foot lever. It can also fold up when the bikes are not being carried if you want to keep the rack on your Mazda.

Additionally, the Sherpa 2.0 comes with a hitch lock to secure the rack to your '19 Mazda 3 and a cable lock to secure your bikes to the rack, helping protect your investments.

This bike rack has a 40 lb per bike weight capacity and will fit wheels that are between 25 inches and 29 inches. It will also work with tires up to 3 inches wide but if you have tires that are from 3 inches to 4.8 inches wide you can add the Phat Bike Adapter Kit for Kuat Bike Racks # APBK.

I have added links to some video reviews of this rack for you to take a look at.
