Hyundai Sonata Bike Rack Questions

  • I have an alternative solution for you, but none of our trunk mount bike rack manufacturers have released a trunk bike rack fit for your 2016 Hyundai Sonata. I spoke with my contact at Thule, and she says that due to the design of the trunk lid on your generation Sonata, the bike rack straps will not properly attach to secure the rack to the trunk. Rather than a trunk mount bike rack, I recommend a trailer hitch and a hitch mount bike rack. If you do not already have a...

  • Saris has determined that their Bones trunk mounted bike rack, part # SA805 for the 2 bike or # SA801 for the 3 bike version are a fit for the 2015 Hyundai Genesis Sedan. Saris is a very well known and highly regarded manufacturer of bike racks which are very well received by our customers. If you'll be transporting women's bikes or bikes with sharply-angled top tubes, you might also consider a frame adapter bar like part # 64005. The bar spans the distance between the handlebar...

  • Most trunk mount bike carriers will not fit the 2015 Hyundai Sonata because the side hooks cannot be securely attached due to the tail light lenses. But I was able to find a solution. You can use the Saris Bike Porter # SA312B and replace them with the Hatch Huggers # SA3035. The bottom straps would also have to be replaced with a second set of Hatch Huggers OR the hooks will have to go on the inside of the trunk rather that hook onto the lip of the trunk. Only the 2 bike version...

  • I checked with Saris and while they don't recommend your Bones as a fit for your 2015 Hyundai Sonata they do list their Porter part # SA312B as a fit. If you do not want to go the hitch mounted route this would be a great option. For the 3 bike version of this rack you would want the part # SA313B. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well.

  • Yes, since you want to carry bikes I recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24853 for your 2015 Hyundai Sonata Limited. I have linked a video showing how the hitch installs. This, and all of the trailer hitches for your Sonata, is a Class I trailer hitch. What that means is that on a Class I trailer hitch you are limited to 2 bikes maximum. For a compatible platform style carrier one of the most popular platform style carrier options for 2015 Sonata owners is the Swagman XTC #...

  • Your 2015 Hyundai Sonata is not recommended for use with trunk-mount bike carriers. Both Thule and Yakima recommend none of their trunk-mount racks for your car due to the car trunk's thin sheet metal and the bumper cover that COULD be dimpled or dented by the weight of two bikes. Some bike rack makers do show a fit for certain of their lighter trunk-mount racks but my recommendation is to install a trailer hitch and use a hitch-mount 2-bike rack. This puts all of the carrier...

  • I have a solution for you, but the Saris Solo 1 Bike Carrier # SA102 is not a confirmed fit for your 2015 Hyundai Sonata. If your Sonata is a sedan, Saris confirmed their Porter 2 Bike Rack # SA312B as a fit for the 2015 Sonata Sedan. The Porter rack can hold 1 or 2 bikes, and has a weight capacity of 35 pounds per bike. Saris requires their Hatch Huggers # SA3035 replace the side hooks as well as the lower hooks. If the lower hooks are not replaced with Hatch Huggers, they...

  • The Saris Porter 2 part # SA402B that you referenced is actually a hitch mounted bike rack that will fit your 2015 Hyundai Sonata as long as you have a hitch installed as well. For a hitch you would want the # 60269 as it has been confirmed as a fit and would work well with Saris bike rack.

  • According to Thule, the Raceway 3 Bike Carrier, part # TH9002PRO you mentioned is a fit for your 2014 Hyundai Sonata. I have linked you to a product review video for this carrier. If you are planning on carrying womens bikes or any bike that has an alternative frame, I would recommend the Thule Bike Adapter Bar, part # TH982XT. The adapter bar attaches to your bike seat post and handlebar stem post, providing a horizontal bar for the bike rack to secure. I have linked you to...

  • There are many trunk mount bike racks for 2 bikes that will fit your 2014 Hyundai Sonata. I have included a link to them for you. Trunk mount bike racks have adjustable legs and arms to get the best fit on vehicles so the short distance between the rear glass and the end of the trunk will not be a problem. Nor will the glass be harmed. Vehicle glass is strong, it has to be, and even if the carrier was resting on the glass it would not harm it. But it won't be resting on the...

  • The best way to carry a girl's or women's bike on a hanging style bike rack like the Thule Vertex # TH9029XT is to use a frame adapter bar like part # 64005. The bar spans the distance between the handlebar gooseneck and the seat post, providing a level attachment point for the bike rack. This allows the bike to be carried level, which maximizes the ground clearance. As long as the distance between the seatpost and the handlebar gooseneck is greater than 16 inches, the adapter...

  • Honestly I do not recommend the Thule Raceway # TH9003PRO just because of the weight and damage it has caused other vehicles. Especially on a brand new vehicle such as your 2013 Hyundai Sonata. Thule makes excellent racks, but this one was not executed well. Some people have used this rack without problems but I never feel safe recommending it just because of that risk. For a much better Thule trunk mounted bike rack that will work on both vehicles and work very well check...

  • The Thule Raceway platform style trunk mount rack # TH9003PRO is best suited for vehicles that have metal bumpers. This is because the rack itself is fairly heavy and then adding the weight of bikes to it can deform the less substantial bumpers on other vehicles. I recommend a lighter rack like the regular Raceway # TH9001PRO. I own the 3 bike version of this rack and it is the easiest rack to use and install that I have ever used. It is much less likely that this rack or any...

  • Yes, girls bikes will fit on the Yakima SwingDaddy # Y02464, but I would add an adapter bar such as # Y02531. The adapter attaches quickly and easily between your handlebars and seat post to form a sturdy, horizontal bar. I have included a couple video reviews for you too.

  • There is a way to carry 4 bikes with your 2013 Hyundai Sonata, but only two of them will be able to be carried with a hitch mounted bike rack. The reason is that all of the hitches available for your vehicle are Class I which means they are limited to only carrying 2 bikes. What you will need to do is get a hitch like the Hidden Hitch part # 60296 and a bike rack like part # TH9029 that you referenced but only put two bikes on the rack. Any more than that and you will put too...

  • To carry your bikes on the roof of your 2013 Hyundai Sonata, you will want a roof rack and a roof mount bike carrier. We do not sell any roof rack and bike carrier kits. For a bike rack for your 2013 Sonata, I recommend the Rhino Rack Square Bar Roof Rack with 49 inch crossbars # DS126B and custom fit clamps and pads # DK250. This roof rack has a weight capacity of 165 pounds. The Rhino Rack Square Bars are a great budget friendly roof rack. To carry a bike on your roof...

  • We checked with Thule and the Passage part # TH910XT has been confirmed as a fit for your 2013 Hyundai Sonata so it would work well for you. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Swagman Easy-Out Women's and Alternative Frame Bike Adapter # 64005 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also. This will...

  • First, the Curt trailer hitch # C11025 is a fine hitch and I am sure you will be happy with it. However, Curt does require the use of a stabilization strap, # 18050, for any non-trailer load, in this case a bike rack. The other hitches, see link, do not require the strap. The strap is designed to relieve some of the stress on the Class I trailer hitch. Also with any Class I trailer hitch, regardless of the brand, you will be limited to carrying 2 bikes at most. The 2 racks...

  • A trunk-mount platform-style bike carrier such as the Thule # TH9003PRO offers the advantages of not having to lift your bikes up to a roof-mount carrier or remove the front wheels. It is also compatible with a wide variety of frame styles without need for an adapter bar, which is necessary in some cases to transport womens and alternate-frame-style bikes on hanging carriers. The down side of trunk-mount carriers is that they will inevitable apply some force on your trunk...

  • The Thule Passage 2 trunk mount bike rack, # TH910XT, does fit the 2012 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. The correct fit dial setting for this vehicle is 7. You will also need to place the top clips in the gap at the front edge of the top of the trunk, place the lower clips in the bottom edge of the trunk, and the lower arm of the carrier should be positioned on the upper tier of bumper. I have included links to the installation instructions and a link to a video review of the bike rack...
