Will the Yakima Fullswing Fit on a 2016 Mazda CX-5


Do you think the Yakima Fullswing will work good on a 2016 Mazda CX-5? Thank you

As long as your 2016 Mazda CX-5 has a 2" hitch like the etrailer Hitch for 2016 Mazda CX-5 # e98902, then yes, the Yakima Fullswing 4 Bike Rack - 2" Hitches - Swinging # Y02465 will work on your CX-5 and is a great choice for carrying 4 bikes. The Fullswing will swing away from the rear of your vehicle to allow you to open the rear hatch and provides you with a solution to carry up to 4 bikes; the Fullswing also comes with a hitch lock and locks for the bikes, so your investments are always protected. Overall this is a great alternative to a tilt away carrier and you're getting a high quality Yakima rack.

In the event that you're going to be carrying bikes with aggressive step through frames like women's or children's bikes you will need a bike frame adapter bar like the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's, and Alternative Frame Bikes # 64005. This bar attaches to the seat post and handlebar post to allow you to carry the bikes level and minimize shifting around during travel that might damage the bikes or the carrier.

I've linked some review videos of these parts for you to have a look at.
