Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 2020 Mazda 3 Hatchback for Bike Rack


I need a way to carry our bikes using my 2020 Mazda 3 hatchback. I want to use a hitch rack but don't want to do a bunch of mods for the hitch. What's your input?


Expert Reply:

The trailer hitch I recommend for a 2020 Mazda 3 Hatchback is the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24984. The Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver is a custom bolt-on fit with no major modifications required. The instillation process should only take around thirty minutes to an hour. There are also no special tools required either so you should be able to install this hitch yourself without issue. Please note, the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver has a relatively hidden design so the vehicle will be able to retain the factory-like appearance. I have attached an in-use photo for you as well.

If you will be using the trailer hitch for a bike rack, I recommend taking a look at the Saris Freedom 2 Bike Platform Rack part # SA4412B as it can accommodate bikes with all kinds of different frames and it is super lightweight at only 22.5 lbs so it's easy to take on and off the vehicle. In fact, this is actually the same bike rack in the photo.
