Hyundai Elantra Questions

  • We have a few different options for carrying bike racks with your 2013 Hyundai Elantra, however, Thule has not released any information regarding bike rack or roof rack fits for your vehicle. If you were interested in a trunk mounted bike rack, then I would recommend taking a look at the Yakima KingJoe Pro 2 Bike Rack, # Y02624. With this bike rack you will want to use the Glass Hatch Hooks that are included in place of the upper hooks. If you were interested in a roof...

  • I spoke with several of our roof rack manufacturers and Thule was the only company that said they had a confirmed fit for your 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT with the panoramic sunroof. For a rack similar to the Rola Sport Series Roof Rack # 59740 that you referenced you would want the following components. Thule AeroBlade Load Bars # THARB53 Thule Rapid Traverse Foot Pack # TH480R Thule Roof Rack Fit Kit # THKIT1695 I asked if you would still be able to open the sunroof...

  • Since the SportRack square crossbars are 50 inches long on your 2013 Hyundai Elantra, I recommend getting a fairing that fits across most of the crossbar. The Thule Fairing, part # TH8702 is a 44 inch long fairing and to work with square crossbars would need the # 853-7362 adapter and you would still have 3 inches on each side of the fairing left uncovered. I recommend the Inno Fairing, part # INA262. This fairing is 48 inches long which would leave only about an inch on each...

  • We do offer a roof rack system with square bars that is compatible with your Elantra GT with the panoramic roof. Thule offers a compatible rack system that can be constructed using the following part numbers: Thule 50 inch square crossbars # THLB50 Thule Traverse foot pack # TH480 Thule vehicle-specific fit kit # THKIT1695 I have confirmed with Thule that this system will fit your vehicle.

  • When it comes to a trailer hitch receiver for your 2014 Hyundai Elantra, I recommend going with the Draw-Tite Sportframe, # 24902. This hitch offers a 2,000 lb towing capacity and 200 lbs of tongue weight. One of the perks of the Draw-Tite hitch is that a support strap, like part # 18050, is NOT required on non-trailer loads in order to maintain your warranty. If you plan on doing any towing with your Elantra, I recommend that you start by checking your owner's manual to determine...

  • The main difference between the Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 60872, and the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 24795, is that the # 60872 has a drawbar, pin and clip included with it, whereas the # 24795 does not include those things. Aside from that, they are so similar in design that they even share the same installation instructions. I attached the instructions and a video of this product being installed onto a similar car as yours below for you to check out. You...

  • Both the 2015 and 2016 model years of the Hyundai Elantra are part of the car's 5th generation. This will tend to mean that they will share fits for aftermarket parts like trailer hitches such as the Draw-Tite # 24902. I did check with my technical contact at Draw-Tite and hitch # 24902 is indeed a confirmed carry-over fit for the 2016 Elantra Sedan and Coupe versions. Curt hitch # C11303 has also been confirmed as a carry-over item for the Sedan. I have linked an installation...

  • Yes, as you can see in the larger picture, I have the attachment point noted which shows the bolts are located inside the cargo area. If you are looking for a cargo basket for your 2011 Hyundai Elantra that is free from attachment intrusion in the basket, check out the Yakima LoadWarrior # Y07070. In the video I have attached of a 2013 Elantra installation you can see that the attachment points are on the far corners of the rack and do not interfere with any cargo loaded in...

  • If you have a 2012 Hyundai Elantra Touring Hatchback, the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 24844, will fit. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. I have also included a link to all of the hitches that fit the Touring Hatchback model. If you plan on doing some towing, this is a Class I trailer hitch with a 2,000 pound gross trailer weight capacity and 200 pound tongue weight capacity. You will want to consult the vehicle owners manual to determine the towing...

  • The roof rack you referenced is designed to fit a 2014 Hyundai Elantra GT model without a panoramic glass roof. This roof rack has Euro Style 46 inch square crossbars and features locking legs that secure your rack to the roof of your Elantra. For this roof rack you would need part # DS118B and part # DK289. All of the roof racks we offer are pretty simple to install and come with installation instructions. If you have a GT and also have a panoramic glass roof, the roof rack...

  • The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 24902, and the Curt Trailer Hitch, # C11303 can be used on the 2011 Hyundai Elantra or a 2012 model. It looks like you have 2012 Hyundai Elantra. I have included a link to the available trailer hitches for you. If you like the Curt hitches, # C11303 fits the sedan and # C11471 fits the hatchback. Or for Draw-Tite, # 24902 fits the sedan and # 24844 fits the hatchback. The Curt hitches come with a ball mount, pin and clip. The Draw-Tite hitches...

  • The Draw-Tite hitch #24795 will fit your 2010 Hyundai Elantra as long as it is the Sedan model. We have test fitted the product on a Hyundai Elantra with a tow loop and I attached photos of the hitch on the vehicle. The hitch sits right in front of the tow loop and it does not interfere with the use or installation of the hitch. If your Elantra is a Touring Hatchback, this hitch will not fit and you will need Draw-Tite Hitch Receiver #24844. This hitch has a powder coat finish...

  • At this time there are only Class I trailer hitches available for the 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT. What I recommend is to use a trunk mount bike rack that can handle up to 3 bikes. I have included a link to the trunk mount racks that fit your vehicle and can hold 3 bikes. Out of this list I recommend the Thule Raceway # TH9002PRO. I own this rack myself and it is by far the easiest rack to use that I have encountered. What makes it so easy are the retractable cables it uses instead...

  • All states will have some law regarding blocking the license plate. What you can do is use a license plate mounting bracket, # LP15SB, and move the plate off to the side of the vehicle. This will require drilling. Another option that is less permanent and less expensive is to secure the plate to the last bike on the rack using wire ties or bungee cords. On a long trip, I would use wire ties.

  • You would definitely want to have the gear selector of your 2015 Hyundai Elantra in neutral for flat towing. Check the owners manual of your vehicle for further instructions. According to Roadmaster you would not need to disconnect the battery to flat tow your vehicle so that would indicate that there is a way for you unlock the steering wheel of the vehicle without draining the battery. This should be covered in your owners manual. For a base plate kit you would want the...

  • I know you said you plan on buying a Curt hitch for your 2011 Hyundai Elantra but I would actually recommend the Draw Tite part # 24902 instead as it has a better price and doesn't require a stabilizer strap like the Curt does with a hitch carrier. The most popular cargo carrier that would work well for you would be the Curt part # C18110. The Rola Cargo Bag part # 59102 would then fit the carrier well and would be a great choice as it's dimension closely match the carrier....

  • On your 2011 Hyundai Elantra you will be limited to a maximum of two bikes on a hitch bike because the hitches that fit your vehicle will all be a Class I rated hitch. A Class I hitch has a maximum tongue weight capacity of 200 lbs. That is how much weight that can be applied to the hitch opening. Since you mention about opening your trunk I would assume you have the Elantra Sedan model and not the Hatchback. If you need a hitch I would recommend the Draw-Tite Class I 1-1/4...

  • If your 2012 Hyundai Elantra is a sedan model then Draw-Tite trailer hitch, # 24902, will be a good choice. The recommended ball mount is # 3594 and you can use 1-7/8 inch ball # 19256 or 2 inch ball # 19258. For a hatchback, use # 24844. There are Class I hitches so they have a 2,000 pound gross trailer weight capacity and 200 pound tongue weight capacity. While this is enough for a small rental trailer, you will want to consult the vehicle owners manual for the vehicle towing...

  • The manual transmission 2016 Hyundai Elantra is flat-towable as-is. You would just need the base plate part # 521632-1 as it is a confirmed fit. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well. I am sure the 2017 model will be as well but since it's not out at this time (May 2016) we don't know yet. This would work well with you Roadmaster Falcon part # RM-520. For safety cables you can use # RM-643. The coiled design helps keep the cables off of the ground. For...

  • We rate hitch installation difficulty based on the amount of time it takes for a professional or skilled layman to complete the installation. The hitch that takes the least time to install is Draw-Tite hitch # 24905. The estimated pro installation time is 30 minutes so their difficulty is rated a 3 out of 10. Please note that none of the hitches fit models built in Korea; check the door manufacture sticker or VIN. If the second letter is an M it means it was Korean-built. This,...
