Subaru XV Crosstrek

First I want to say that trying to design a hitch to fit around a muffler on a small crossover is not an easy task. The construction of the hitch and receiver are heavy gauge and we’ll constructed. The fish wires worked like a charm and were integral for the installation. I did run into an interference with the muffler isolation rods welded to the frame. After placing the hitch, I had to hand tighten the nuts before tightening incrementally each bolt as the rods were pushed away during the tightening process. Dropping the muffler would not have helped here as the welded ends were the issue (see photos) Other than that, I am pleased with the result and would recommend to other Crosstrek owners.

After one year, this hitch has made hauling our bikes around worry free. Combined with the Kuat bike rack and locks, our bikes are secure no matter the road conditions. Before purchasing this hitch I investigated mounting to the roof. This proved impractical since I couldn’t mount them while in the garage plus who wants to lift bikes over their heads to stow these. Not happening… love the hitch and rack setup. Peace of mind and just plain easy. Plus the hitch looks like I just installed, no rust and no movement even after many uses this year. Plus, I’m rough on stuff and I’m confident it will last for many enjoyable years to come.

@KevinH We're delighted to hear that, thanks for checking back in!

2024 Subaru Crosstrek

I placed the hitch onto my Subaru 2024. I watched some YouTube videos on how to use the fishing wire, bolts, spacers. Watching to videos was very helpful.
I drilled the back holes using a titanium step bit. Try to be very careful if you don’t have an extension from the drill to the bit. I crushed my fingers a few times because I forced the drill more then necessary and the drill and bit would twist and get stuck. Let the drill do the work with minimal force.
I didn’t t need to jack the vehicle at all I had enough clearance to get under as is. I did use a small wood box and some scrap wood to rest the hitch onto to help position. I completed the installation in about two hours. I also had to use the spacers at the two back bolts to level the hitch.

2018 Subaru Crosstrek

Lower profile, and still holding strong! Initially wanted to get the EcoHitch (with the removable receiver) but couldn't find enough info to give me enough confidence to run it the way I do. Glad I went with the Curt! Great install tutorial. Pic included: can't even tell its there, like a vanishing magician.


Perfect fit, easy to install, and very discreet. I'm not a total gearhead or anything and I was able to follow the instructions and install this pretty easily with just an extra set of hands at the very end. I had to get some tire lifts to get all the way under the car to install comfortably. I've had this on my car for a year now and it's worked great! This option isn't a total eyesore and it looks great. Highly recommended!


This is the 2nd Curt Trailer hitch I've installed on a 2nd Subaru. Both were easy to install with bolts and nuts supplied. They come with great spring' like things that make feeding the bolt in from the top of the frame hole easy. I use the 2" receivers for bike racks only, no towing. For hauling 2 bikes they receiver works great, even 2 fat bikes in winter. I would recommend these receivers 100%.

One year in and Hitch is still great. Even use it to jack up the back of the car for tire rotation. But mostly used for bike rack.


The installation videos on etrailer guided me step by step and made the install manageable even without being on a lift. I was able to complete the installation on ramps with the help of my wife just to lift the hitch up. If you're not using a lift, taking off the muffler completely really helps and it's pretty easy to do so. I'd also like to mention that Odelia from customer service who helped me with the purchase was wonderful. She helped me cancelled the hitch that was on backorder and picked one that has the same features and price point. She was easy to work with, professional, and courteous which made me feel like I am a valued customer. I can't say I have the same experience with other companies I've dealt with. This is the 3rd hitch I've purchased from eTrailer and I've got to say, every experience was very pleasant.



Still rock solid after one year. Didnt expect anything less.

2021 Subaru Crosstrek

So far so good. Going to mount my kuat nv 4 back rack on it today to test it out. Prepping the car was simple, was able to just lay underneath not jack stand needed. And I’m not small. The install video is quite helpful. I learned to not use duct tape to hold the spacer, the bolt won’t go through very easily. After I installed the hardware my 13 year old daughter helped me feed the fish tape through the hitch and get nuts started. I did not move the exhaust, I had a hinged ratchet that gave me plenty of ability to access all four bolts. Solid rack, simple install, love it.
Also this was installed on my 2021 Crosstrek Sport



Still love it. I found out I put it on a little crooked. Totally my fault. Easy fix with putting a ball on it to see when it was square, then re tighten the bolts. I am planning to get the same hitch for our mini van and Subaru Accent when we get it.

2023 Subaru Crosstrek

The hitch quality is what was expected from Curt, exceptional. The installation was well demonstrated in the etrailer videos. Elongate the front holes and fish wire the hardware through. This was ingenuous. Definitely needed a second pair of hands to position the hitch in place for me. Also would recommend for others to have a selection of ratchet extensions. Great product looks great on the 2023 Subaru Crosstrak.


Buy a different harness! Installed and used after 90 day warranty, trailer lights stay on even with car light off, tester yields same issue so I know it's NOT my trailer or trailer wiring. E-trailer would not replace due to order placed over 90 days ago. $90 down the toilet. Avoid this harness and if possible, buy elsewhere with better warranty period.

2018 Subaru Crosstrek

It arrived in a box. There were two holes in the box, where the bolted to car parts were scuffed as they must have been dragged around during delivery. I filed them just to remove burrs. The center receiver (visible after installed) was well packaged and avoided any damage.

I grinded the hole into the car frame to allow fishing bolts and spacers into the car with the pictured tool. It was less material removal than I feared. But be careful you make the hole large enough for both spacer and the bolt, because I had trouble fishing the bolt in one hole that was just shy of the right size. A light hammering helped it in. But I made sure the hole was big enough before putting away the air tool.

I did not need to lower the muffler, but it was much easier to wiggle the thing into place with the fished wires with my wife assisting. It only took 10 minutes of her time. From raising the car onto jackstands, installing the hitch receiver, to lowering it, I was done in 2 hours.

2018 Subaru XV Crosstrek

I bought and installed the hitch(bar is out of sight receiver is seen when not in use) and the vehicle specific Wiring Harness (plug n play).
I watched a install video of this being installed on my new 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. After seeing how easy it was to install I ordered the things needed and in less then 48 hours they were delivered to my front door. I did the install by myself and followed the install video instructions. I took extra steps to run the wiring by removing the muffler heat shield so I could route the wiring out the spare tire drain hole. Resealed the drain plug and mounting hardware with Rubber undercoating spary.
This. Whole Kit and the video’s are top of the line. The fish wires for the mounting hardware is a very nice add and makes it very easy to install this hitch. I managed OK by myself but it would definitely be nice to have a helper when it comes to raising the hitch into place for bolting it to the frame.
I am very impressed with the thought and attention to detail this company did with this Hitch, wiring harness and install videos. I would not hesitate to do this same purchase again and highly recommend it. There were several hitch options and price points to for me to choose from for my 2018 Subaru Crosstrek.


After looking at the Curt and Drawtite hitches, I decided to go with the Curt hitch because it appeared to be more concealed under the car and I did not need the increased tow capacity of the Drawtite hitch. I placed my order on a Tuesday afternoon and my hitch was delivered on Friday, which was awesome.
Installation was straightforward and easy as described on Etrailers website,
I took my time and even spray painted around the holes that needed to be enlarged to get the bolts in the frame. Total install was 1hr 15 min.
Very happy with fit and look.


Pleasantly surprised by the weight of it. Sturdy, built like a tank. Installation was fairly easy. Took me about an hour to install using rhino ramps. Widened the access holes with a rotary tool and dremel tungsten carbide cutter piece. Lifting the heavy hitch to the undercarriage while screwing in the bolts was definitely the hardest part. Get an extra pair of hands. Earlier hitch/crosstrek models recommended lowering the muffler/exhaust but that’s not necessarily needed with this. However, you’ll need extremely deep sockets to reach the left hex nut closest to the driver’s seat. I couldn’t get an impact wrench to fit and ended up hand ratcheting that one. (see picture). It looks amazing. Love the hidden look.

2024 Subaru Crosstrek

Easy and quick install. Thanks for the great instructions.

2022 Subaru Crosstrek

very solid. I like that the cross bar is hidden up above the receiver.



Still looks and works fine.

2018 Subaru XV Crosstrek

I bought this Curt trailer hitch receiver for my 2018 Subaru Crosstrek because of its clean appearance and easy installation. It took me a little less than 2 hrs. to get it and the T-One wiring harness installed, working at a very deliberate pace and checking the excellent etrailer videos frequently. I didn't have to jack up the car, and didn't need an extra set of hands. Could not be happier with the hitch and the fast, free shipping I received from etrailer. Highly recommended!


As advertised. The hitch arrived quickly and well-packaged with clear instructions and all parts. If you are in anyway mechanically inclined, this install is super straightforward. Highly recommend purchasing from


A little tricky to install without a lift and without a helper but i was able to do alone in about an hour. There are some very helpful videos showing how to install. One of the mounting bolts arrived with damaged threads but i was able to fix okay using a file. The shackle shown in my photo is more for look. I'll be using the hitch for a bike rack mostly.


This is the second of these hitches I purchased. First one was for a 2018 Sub Crosstrek. The latest for a 2023 Sub Crosstrek. The concealment design is the main reason for my multiple purchases. It looks good and the tuck-a-way design doesn't mess to much with the ground clearance.


Hitch arrived and looks fine. Have not installed as of this review as E-Trailer is way to fast in asking for a review of the product, but I'm sure it will tow a trailer just fine.


E trailer is always on the ball and provides great customer service and shipping. An example of top notch e-commerce. Thanks

2020 Subaru Crosstrek

I ordered the Curt Trailer Hitch on Sunday (6 pm) and I was pleasantly surprised that etrailer shipped the hitch in about an hour…on a Sunday evening. The trailer hitch took 5 days to travel across the US to California. The trailer hitch was shipped in a heavy weight corrugated box, arrived unblemished and no missing parts.

The installation was not too difficult and one should view the video before the installation. I highly recommend that the vehicle’s exhaust system be detached from the rubber supports. This will allow easy access to the vehicle’s frame where the trailer hitch is being attached. The most difficult part of the install is detaching the rubber supports from the exhaust system. Although the trailer hitch is not too heavy, it is advisable have an assistant help hold the trailer hitch in place while securing the nuts to the bolts. I was always concerned that if the trailer hitch moved too much while bolting it to the frame, the bolt(s) would recede into the vehicle’s frame.

As you can tell, this was a success story. I would recommend purchasing your vehicle trailer needs from etrailer.


This hitch is very well made very sturdy. Thank you for instruction video helped a lot. The only thing I did wrong was pull on guide wire when pulling through frame. It took awhile to get them off bolt. I am very pleased with ordering and how quickly it arrived. Looking forward to doing more business with your company.

Excellent very reliable


I mounted this receiver hitch on my 2019 Subaru Crosstrek by myself which was much more difficult than expected. The video directions are very good, but, the installation was a real challenge. To be fair, I did not lower the exhaust and did not jack up the car. I used a circular bastard file to make the forward holes about 1/4" larger to accommodate the bolt backing plates and threaded the backing plates/bolts as instructed with the threaded wires. Be careful as I poked myself in the eye (that's why you use safety glasses). I had to tilt the entire assembly to position it around the exhaust. I used some nylon straps attached to the exhaust brackets to carefully lift up the receiver assembly one side at a time, so I could thread the nuts onto the bolts. I needed to use a screwdriver to put lateral pressure on the end of the bolt while screwing on the nut so that the bolt didn't push upward. The job took about 90 minutes, mostly to twist and position my hands to the appropriate place to reach the assembly while under the car. It is awkward but doable, just be patient or have an assistant. I highly recommend this product; it is 1/4 the price of the dealer installed hitch and 2" compared to the manufacturer 1 1/4" hitch.


This is my third hitch purchased from etrailer. All three arrived quickly and with no damage. For this one on my 2018 Crosstrek I also purchased the Curt 4-pole wiring harness which installed in about 10 minutes. I found this hitch the most challenging of the 3 to install but with two people it was ok; it was the first hitch install to require snaking through wires to pull the blocks and bolts through. That went pretty smoothly though after using a file and dremel to widen the two forward holes. I used a helper to hold up one side while I removed the snake wires and hand threaded on the bolts.

After tightening the bolts (due to the spacer blocks) the forward bolts did not extend through the nuts. On the passenger side the bolt was flush with the bottom of the nut and on the drivers side the bolt was not even to the end of the nut, it was recessed up in at least 2 threads. That was no good. Looking at the hitch from the rear and verifying with a level, the hitch was not level and actually angled up a bit - I calculated about 1/4" (about the same thickness of the spacer blocks...).

Also note that the drivers side forward nut is partially blocked by the exhaust. I removed the 3 rear rubber hangers which allowed me to move the exhaust just enough to the right to get the socket straight on to tighten it up.

So, I did the same as another reviewer (William 04/11/2020) and removed the spacer blocks. The hitch now is perfectly level with plenty of thread protruding through the forward nuts.

These videos should emphasize that those spacer blocks are optional and use only as necessary. But I guess the only way you will know if you do not need them is to first install with them and see how it goes.

  • Most Hidden Trailer Hitch that Fits 2022 Subaru Crosstrek
    For your 2022 Subaru Crosstrek the most hidden trailer hitch we have is the Curt part # C13382 which only has the hitch opening that hangs below the rear bumper. This gives a more hidden look and also helps with ground clearance.

  • Does Installing Curt Trailer Hitch on 2019 Subaru Crosstrek Affect Rear Crumple Zone Integrity
    The install of the Curt 2-inch hitch part # C13382 that you referenced on your 2019 Subaru Crosstrek would not negatively affect the crumple zone of the rear bumpers. This attaches to the bottom of the vehicle frame where a hitch was designed to attach by Subaru. If you were rear-ended the hitch would provide a bit more rigidness but it would still crumple like it would need to and be safe.

  • How to Know if Installation of Curt Hitch C13382 Requires CM-SP16 Spacers
    Spacers are provided with just about all hitches since there can be slight variances between vehicles, even similarly-equipped vehicles of the very same model year. You'll want to use the CM-SP16 spacers if the hitch mounting flanges do not rest flat against the frame rail. If the flanges make full contact with the frame along their entire length then you do not need the CM-SP16 spacers.

  • Troubleshooting Bolt Not Going All the Way Through Frame of 24 Subaru Crosstrek Curt Hitch Install
    We have to recommend using the flange since that's what Curt recommends. My guess is that the the carriage bolt isn't going all the way through the spacer block so you might try rotating the bolt to see if it can seat all the way through it. If the front bolts are tight you might try loosening them to see if that gives more slack for the rear bolts to thread through.

    Long story short a towing setup is only as strong as it's weakest component. So even if you install a higher rated trailer hitch on your 2018 Subaru Crosstrek like the Curt # C13382 you'd still be limited to the 200 lb tongue weight capacity of the vehicle. The hitches are designed to fit the vehicle and also designed to be as strong as possible. They are rated off of the vehicle and independent of it too. This is why the hitches will have much higher capacities than the vehicles typically.
