Trailer Hitch Receiver With Best Clearance For 2018 Mazda 3 Hatchback


Ive got a 2018 Mazda3 Touring Hatchback and a Kuat NV 2.0 Base. Do you know the ground clearance for the 3 hitches you carry that fit my car? Item numbers: Item # 24914 Item # 306-X7305 Item # C11377 Thanks

The trailer hitch receiver that has the best bumper and ground clearance for your 2018 Mazda 3 hatchback is going to be the option from Draw-Tite:

- Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24914

When we test fit this hitch on an '18 Mazda 3 hatchback we found the distance from the hitch pin hole to bumper was a mere 2-1/2 inches and the distance from top of the receiver to the ground was 11-1/4 inches.

This is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver, which you can use with the Kuat NV 2.0 # NV12B bike rack. That said, if you do have the NV 2.0 that fits 2 inch hitches - the Kuat NV 2.0 # NV22B - you will need the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7305 because it is the only hitch for your Mazda 3 that has a 2 inch receiver.

I have added a link below to the video install I mentioned of the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24914.
