What Hitch Platform Bike Rack Can I Use On My 2020 Kia Soul With A Curt 11575 Hitch Receiver


I am getting a Curt 11575 Tow Hitch for my car 2020 Kia Soul this weekend. Will the Swagman XC2 be compatible with the hitch? Can you make other hitch recommendations if not?


Expert Reply:

We do have hitch bike rack options for your 2020 Kia Soul. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4", part # C67FR, has a maximum tongue weight of 200 lbs and a maximum gross tow weight of 2,000 lbs. That maximum tongue weight includes the weight of the hitch bike rack and the weight of the bikes you will be carrying.

The Swagman XC2 Bike Rack for 2 bikes - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Frame Mount, part # S64650, fits Class II and III hitch receivers. It will not work with the Curt hitch receiver that fits your vehicle. My hitch bike rack recommendation is the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Frame Mount, part # HR1000Z. It is a Class I hitch bike rack that comes with an anti-rattle hitch pin to reduce movement between the hitch receiver and the hitch bike rack. It can carry bikes that weigh up to 50 lbs and with tires sized up to 3.0". You will also be able to access the rear of your vehicle, even when carrying bikes, with the tilt down mast of this bike rack. This rack is fender friendly, it secures the bike via the wheels and a clamp for the frame. The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider comes with a lock for the rack and locks for the bikes. This way your rack is secured to your vehicle and the bikes are secured to the hitch bike rack.

I have included product description links and a video review link below.
