Bike Rack and Trailer Hitch Recommendations for a 2012 Subaru Impreza 5-Door Hatchback


Is the super shuttle 3 compatible with a 2012 Subaru Impreza hatchback?


Expert Reply:

The Super Shuttle bike rack, # RG8015127, is not compatible with your 2012 Subaru Impreza but we do have some bike racks that are. Please note that if the vehicle has a rear spoiler, you cannot use a trunk mount bike rack.

I have included a link to the trunk mount racks that are listed as a fit for the hatchback with no spoiler. The rack that is most like the Super Shuttle is the Thule Passage 3, # TH911XT. If you will be carrying womens, childrens, or alternative frame bikes, I recommend using the adapter bar # TH982XT to carry the bikes more level.

If the vehicle does have a spoiler than I recommend installing a trailer hitch and using a hitch mount bike rack. If the vehicle has quad-exhaust (WRX) or is a WRX STi, you can use hitch # C11120. Then, you can use a bike rack like the Swagman Titan # S63400. I still recommend using the adapter bar for women's, children's, or alternative frame bikes.
