Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for 2016 Mazda 3 Hatchback for Electric Bikes  


Hi, I have a 2016 Mazda3 hatchback, and need a trailer hitch + hitch-mounted bike rack, to carry two ebikes about 45lb each. Please let me know what youd recommend. Many thanks

There are some great options to carry a couple e-bikes with your 2016 Mazda 3 hatchback, and you do need a trailer hitch receiver to start with. For the best quality hitch that fits I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24914.

For a bike rack to fit this Class I hitch and carry your 45 lb electric bikes there is one option that stands above the rest, the Thule T2 Pro XTR 2-Bike Platform Rack # TH23JV.

This rack is Class I compatible, has a 50 lb per bike capacity, and is a wheel-mounted rack so there is no contact at all with the frames of your bikes. It is also easy to use because of its wheel holders which are large to make loading and unloading your bikes easy, and because to fold or tilt the rack down, all that is required is to use its HitchSwitch lever.

I have added links to video reviews for you to check out as well.
