2014 Toyota Prius

I purchase two different products and installed both, back to back. I did not use a jack or a lift, so it took about 45 minutes to finesse this one into/onto my Toyota Prius. I needed a helper (wife) which made it much easier. This is for a bike rack. Ordered Friday and delivered Monday, fast, fast. Thank you.

Ezekiel A.


It has performed as my intended use. I have only used this for attaching a bicycle rack and holding 2 bicycles.

2013 Toyota Prius

Etrailer pointed me to the correct hitch for my vehicle. The hitch arrived very quickly. I used Etrailer recommended installer ABG Fabrication and Jim and his crew were awesome. This hitch works perfectly for the bike rack on my 2013 prius. A very good experience all the way around! Thank you etrailer & ABG!

2012 Toyota Prius

Installs easily and fits as advertised. I had the 2” receiver first and it was not possible to install in my 2012 Prius. Stick to the 1.25 and you’ll be set.


Everything fit as advertised without any alterations. It appears strong and handled my bike rack for Ebikes just fine. Good company to work with.


I bought this hitch after watching the online videos by etrailer detailing the installation. They make it look a lot easier to install than my experience, but i was not using a lift and had never done it before. The price on this hitch was very good and it was shipped very quickly. It beat the tools that I ordered from another online retailer to do the install, in fact. The packaging was good as well, and protected the hitch. I included a picture of my installation, which admittedly does not show very much, but its a win for me. The hardest part of installation was dealing with the exhaust bracket. I plan on purchasing a bike rack and a cargo rack in the near future, maybe even a small trailer.

After a year there has been absolutely no problems with the hitch. My plans of cargo racks and trailers were derailed due to the crazy year 2020, but I did purchase an Allen Sports 2-Bike Hitch Rack. The hitch holds the very heavy bike rack heavier loaded very securely with little to no wobble just using the locking hitch pin I also bought. I have no complaints about the hitch.

2013 Toyota Prius

Love it! This trailer hitch allows an upright bike rack to attach, with the addition of an adapter, to our hatchback style Prius. It is much sturdier than our old bike rack that leaned against the hatch window. The trailer hitch/bike rack combo allows us to get into the hatch without removing the rack. We travelled across Florida and back, 300 miles, with no problems. Your website was very helpful in determining the proper hitch and installation was easy. Thank you for a great product at a good price.



Still great! Thanks for following up. Not many companies do that. Great customer service.


Great customer service and very timely delivery. Clean and easy installation.

2010 Toyota Prius

I installed it in 15 minutes with good video and instructions that are provided. Mounting tabs lined up perfectly to OEM holes using their upgraded bolts and washers.
Received it in 3 days after they sent me shipping confirmation and tracking number.
They should tape foam on the mounting tabs to prevent damage and puncturing through the box.
I like how it tucks up and hardly noticeable.



is this a lowered prius?



Hey Victor, were you able to do it at home or did you need a raised platform?

Victor Y.


John it is not a lowered Prius, but with the tucked-up hitch, it gives it that look.

Victor Y.


Sundeep I did it at work in the parking lot, I use the box to set the hitch on then pushed it under the rear and held it up with one arm while the other was threading in their supplied bolts.


After using this custom fit trailer hitch reciever for one year, I am loving it! It was easy to install and it has done exactly what I needed it to do and more! I also bought my vehicle specific trailer light wiring harness which was easy to install as well and continues to work great! I would definitely recommend both of these products!


The hitch is great. Super strong and it has never loosened or worried me driving with a loaded bike rack on many miles of dirt and gravel roads. Highly recommend upgrading to a hitch if you were previously using a clip-on roof rack like me to carry bikes, which can be shaken loose on rough roads or high winds. Installation was straight forward after you find the right bolts to take out.


Plug n play. Directions were easy to follow and the harness operates as it should.

2013 Toyota Prius

Very easy install and great for my bike rack. Confirmed fit for the Xsp version of the Prius too!


The service from eTrailer and the price is always the best around. This is the fifth hitch I have ordered from them and it has always been a great experience. The only issue I have had is that two of the hitches got dropped in shipping and bent. Unfortunately you can't tell it until the bolt holes don't line up under the car. In both cases I was able to simply use a floor jack to spread the ends back the 1/4 inch needed, but it just adds some annoyance. I love eTrailer prices and their service!

2015 Toyota Prius

Purchased this for my "new" 2015 Prius and I'm very pleased by how easy it was to install and how nice it looks. My primary need for a hitch is to carry a bike rack, but I also have a small utility trailer that has been very handy when I need to carry a bulky load that won't fit in the Prius even when it's not all that heavy.

I had previously installed a Curt hitch on my 2009 Prius and had a bit of a problem where the bolt holes didn't quite line up (even though it was only off by 1/8 of an inch or so, it was a lot of work to "stretch" it by even that much to fit. So, I wasn't quite sure what to expect this time. But it turned out to be no problem at all - the holes lined up perfectly, making the installation quick and easy.

A few tips:
1) When removing the tow hook from the drivers side, make sure to carefully remove the bolt and socket driver. If you don't, they can fall down and get caught on the top side plastic underbody panel. That turned what would have been about a 30 minute job into a 60 minute one!
2) The video was very helpful. The installer in the video suggested putting some spray lubricant on the exhaust hanger to help get it back on. I initially found it impossible to remove, even with lots of effort to point that I as worried about damaging it. But a quick shot of silicon lubricant worked wonders - it slid right off to all access to the bolts, and the slid back on easily as well.
3) Be sure to use a torque wrench as described in the installation instructions. I had to torque it down a lot tighter than I would have guessed without the torque wrench.

2010 Toyota Prius

First, let's make a comment on etrailer's service. I placed my order at 4:40 am. The item was shipped at 7:30 am. UPS attempted delivery the next day mid-morning. What would expedited service look like?!!
The Curt hitch is excellent quality. It took a little longer to install than anticipated, but once in it is great looking and very sturdy. The knuckle of the hitch sticks out about an inch to two inches beyond the bumper of my 2010 Toyota Prius. A couple of pictures are attached.


Such a easy install it took me only 20mins from the ground I did back both rear wheels on a bricks to give me more room underneath to install the hitch I recommend lubricant on bolts and muffler hanger, I didn’t have a breaker bar so I used a wheel lug t bar and used the 3/4 side to just loosen it then came back with 19mm ratchet and loosen and tightened it all up and torqued to spec , It’s really simple I watched the curt video install on you tube once and understood it . Im glad I chose the Curt because it was so simple to install great product I recommend buying from etrailer vs eleswhere receiver hitch was delivered well packed with no problems I’ve heard complaints from other websites that delivery was received damaged or bent so the bold won’t line up . Do yourself a solid and go to etrailer you won’t regret it.

2015 Toyota Prius

The install was easy because of the instructions and video, and it has served me well on my 2015 Prius. I use it for my bike rack, and I couldn't be happier. Have another one that I had bought earlier for my Subaru, and it's fantastic. Thanks for coming through eTrailer.

2013 Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid

I’m super excited to use the hitch I just got. The installation went fairly smooth with a big help from the video. It took less than an hour for the 2 guys who were helping me. I’m not sure I could have done it alone. The hardest part seemed like attaching the hitch on the passenger side because of the exhaust. The spec for this product says to torque it to 86 lbs. I hope that is enough to carry the load it is manufactured to claim. The hitch looks great and hangs as it should but I hope it’s not to low since I am already scraping the bottom of my car on shitty Bay Area roads. I like how it doesn’t stick out past the bumper much at all so I won’t knock my shins.


This hitch appears to be a much higher quality hitch/receiver than the U Haul one I bought for my minivan several years ago. I had some help with the installation with auto-tech students from where I teach because it is much easier to install it from a lift. If you are handy, you might be able to install it yourself using jack stands.


Hitch is great. Ended up using a mechanic to put it on due to the measurements width was a tad off.

Toyota Prius

I highly recommend etrailer hitch and wiring harness They were both easy to install. The Prius pull the motorcycle camping trailer very well. You would not even know it was hooked to the car

2011 Toyota Prius

It took over 2 hours for install for 2 reasons. First, the tools would not fit around the exhaust system and in the access slot. 3/4 drive equipment was too bulky. Second reason, an Important issue, the heat shield on my 2011 prius extends further aft than the video and to fit the rightside bracket correctly, the bracket must be sandwiched between the shield and the frame. It took alot of time bending the shield to get the bracket installed. The video is wrong, they just clamp on top of the shield and squeeze it against the frame. You don't want heat to transfer to the vehicle because the 12-volt battery is located in that area.

2012 Toyota Prius

the shipping was fast and it bolted right up to the car as expected. I'm always happy to bring my business to e-trailer.

2010 Toyota Prius

For a 2010 Prius

Very well crafted.
It is a bit heavier than the other Hitch Receivers on the site, but looks way better. Everything was packaged nicely and came as promised.

Install wasn't bad either. I'm slender and fit underneath the car without car ramps and jacks. Just cut out a side of cardboard from the provided box and slide under. At around 45 lb. it's a bit tricky to hold up on your own. So a few house items to prop it up fixed that. 30min install time. MAKE SURE you have 17mm & 19mm DEEP Sockets and 6" extender.

2015 Toyota Prius

Perfect fit, thanks for your user-friendly website! And thanks for the timely delivery also.
The Curt hitch was easily installed by a local shop that has installed "hundreds" of these on local Priuses.
The cargo carrier was pretty simple for this gal to assemble, but would have been even easier if I'd have had a good wrench and another person to assist. It's very sturdy and will be very useful.

  • What To Do If The Holes In The Hitch Don't Quite Line Up With The Holes In The Vehicle Frame?
    The Curt # C11276 is designed to fit all trim levels and or options for the Toyota Prius in the 2011 model year. From what you are describing, I believe the hitch is just flexed out of alignment a little bit. Hitch manufacturers design the frame attachment arms with mild steel so that they can flex. They do this to prevent stress fractures from occurring over time due to changes in temperature, impact from potholes, and anything that can cause the vehicle frame to twist. Because they are...

  • Can a Yakima Bike rack for a Class II Hitch Fit in a Curt Class I Hitch on a 2014 Toyota Prius
    Curt Class I trailer hitches do not have that stop in them. That stop is there to prevent accidental overloading of a Class I hitch. It allows only Class I compatible accessories to be used. In terms of bike racks a Class I hitch is only rated for a maximum of 2 bikes. The reason isn't the weight but rather how far that weight is from the receiver. A third or more bikes will create too much leverage on the hitch receiver and can damage it and the vehicle. I have actually seen it happen;...

    You have to be careful because if the vehicle was in an accident the hitch could also be damaged even if it does not appear to be. I recommend going with a new hitch. Removal of the hitches for the 2013 Toyota Prius is easy since it just directly to the frame. You would just remove the hardware and pull off the hitch. If you are able to determine that the hitch is still fine, not damaged, then if you reuse it you will need to replace the hardware with # RHK. The hardware is meant to...
