Will Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver Fit 2020 Kia Soul EX

Question:

The hitch listed for the 2020 Kia Soul EX appears to be the same one as for the 2019 models. After watching the video for 2019 Soul nearest available video, it was obvious that the 2020 is different in the mounting area of the hitch. The obvious difference is that the 2020 Soul has a transverse mounted muffler instead of the inline mufflers on the 2019. That, combined with the fact that the 2020 Soul EX model is 2 inch longer than the 2019 Soul caused me to question whether the same hitch will actually fit the new Soul EX. Have you guys actually verified fit of this hitch on the 2020 Kia Soul EX? If so, is there a more up-to-date installation instruction showing how to deal with the transverse muffler? We have one of your hitches on our HHR and it has been great. So, I hope we can use one of your hitches for the Soul EX! Thx!

Excellent question, and I can explain for you. The Kia Soul had a redesign for the 2020 model year, so there is a brand-new trailer hitch for it that is different than the hitch for the 2019 model (which is why you noticed it mounts different).

The trailer hitch receiver that fits your 2020 Kia Soul EX is the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24985, which has been designed specifically for and confirmed to fit the 2020 model year Kia Soul (it fits all but GT Turbo models).

The accompanying photo is one a customer sent in of the hitch installed on their '20 Soul and I have added a link to the installation instructions for you to check out of the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24985.

Which hitch receiver sits higher above ground, Curt or Drawtite? This is for a 2020 Soul.

The Curt # C67FR and Draw-Tite # 24985 are pretty much identical with regards to the ground clearance they provided when mounted on your 2020 Soul. I would go with the Curt model simply because it offers an easier install process.
