Trailer Hitch Receiver and Wiring Harness For a 2021 Kia Sportage


Hello, I have a Kia Sportage 2021 2 wheel front-drive and was wondering if this hitch would work? how difficult are they to install? I see from the questions they are installing them in Kia Sorento and Hyundai. Do you need to make modifications or is it straightforward


Expert Reply:

For your front wheel drive 2021 Kia Sportage you will need to use the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13281. This receiver is custom fit to your Sportage with no modifications needed as seen in our installation video that I have linked below.

The etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98841 that you found fits certain model years of the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and some Kia Sorento's, but will not fit your Sportage.

I recommend installing the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118698 when you install the receiver. This will make it easier to install and run the wiring before the receiver is mounted in place. The 4-way connector is needed for most small trailers you may tow and can also be used with Auxiliary Lights # C53201 in the event your hitch mounted accessory impairs the view of your tail lights to other drivers. The Curt Easy Mount Bracket # C58001 will secure the 4-way connector to the end of the receiver for easy access.

Curt does recommend using the Curt Cam Buckle Stabilizing Strap for Hitch-Mounted Accessories # 18050 with any hitch mounted accessory to secure the load in place.
