Hitch Availability and Recommendation for 2015 Subaru Legacy


will you be making a hitch for the 2015 Subaru Legacy sedan ? thanks.


Expert Reply:

We do indeed have hitches for the 2015 Subaru Legacy in both the 1-1/4 inch or 2 inch receiver size from Draw-Tite or Curt Manufacturing.

Whenever the option for a Class III hitch is available, I recommend going that route as there's a much better selection of hitch mounted accessories available for the more common 2 inch receiver.

Curt makes a great product, but their warranty requirements for their Class III hitch, part #
13390 stipulate that a stabilizing strap like part # 18050 be used for any non-trailer load (like a bike rack or cargo carrying tray) used in the hitch. Problem is that the Legacy usually has a spoiler at the rear edge of the trunk that might not be capable of bearing the weight of the strap that'll need to pass over it. So in this case, I'd rule out the Curt.

If you'll be using the hitch for towing purposes, you'll need to see your dealer for a wiring harness. You'll also need the following to complete your towing system:

Ball Mount, part # 2923
1-7/8 inch trailer ball, part # 19260
2 inch trailer ball, part # 63845
Locking hitch pin, part # e98882
