Expert Reply:

Both the Draw-Tite 1-1/4" Class I hitch part # 24920 and the Curt Class I 1-1/4" hitch part # C11406 are great options on the 2019 Honda Fit but the Curt is better for bike racks. The Curt is less recessed under the bumper than the Draw-Tite option so if your bike rack folds up it will not rub the bumper of the Honda.

If you do not have a bike rack yet you will need a compatible Class I bike rack, for that I recommend Thule Helium Pro 2 Bike Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches part # TH9042PRO which is a very lightweight bike rack at 19 lbs because of it's aluminum construction. It carries 2 bikes, tilts away from easy rear cargo access and also folds up against the vehicle when not in use. The cradles are spaced 7" apart of easy loading of the bikes compared to most bike racks with 5-6" of space. It also comes with with the bike lock and hitch lock so you don't have to worry about finding those separately.
