Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Toyota Prius  


For a Toyota Prius 2013. Looking for a hitch with an opening 2x2-inch not 1-1/4. I already have a Yakima bike rack with a receiver opening for 2x2. Do you have a hitch I can purchase?


Expert Reply:

All of the hitches available for your 2013 Toyota Prius have 1-1/4 inch openings. Hitches with 2 inch openings are reserved for vehicles with heavier duty frames and are designed to do some towing. Basically the opposite of a Prius. I attached an FAQ on hitch classifications for you to check out also.

There's no way to use your Yakima rack with a 2 inch opening on your Prius unfortunately. The best recommendation I could give you would be to install one of the 1-1/4 inch hitches available for your vehicle and then get a compatible rack.

For a hitch you would want the Draw Tite Hitch part # 24847. The most popular bike rack with other owners of 13 Prii is the Swagman XTC-2 bike rack part # S64670. This is an excellent rack with many great features. Check out the review I attached that shows this rack being demoed on a similar 2013 Prius as yours.
