2018 Subaru XV Crosstrek

I installed this on my 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. It fits perfectly. Only the square hitch is visible below the bumper from the rear. It installs easily without having to drop the muffler as some models have you do. When putting it in place just start inserting it a little to the vehicles left side. Once in and over the exhaust you can shift it back right and into position. I accomplished widening the feed through holes in the car frame with just a round file. I was nervous about losing a bolt into the frame while getting the hitch into final position so I supported it on 2 additional jack stands plus aluminum shim plates until the last second. I fed the fish wires through the holes in the hitch before moving it into position onto the bolts. This was also a one man operation for me. 495024


Perfect for my bike rack. The hitch does not reduce the ground clearance of the vehicle.

Hitch was easy to install, fits perfectly, and looks great. We did have to enlarge two of the mounting holes so that hardware would fit but even with that installation took less than an hour to complete with two people. Highly recommend this hitch. 527909

2019 Subaru Crosstrek

Really happy with this product!! I had a Curt Class 2 hitch on my last car for my bike rack, so needed to purchase another hitch as I recently bought a new car. It's sturdy, well made, and I really like that most of the hitch is hidden from view behind the bumper. The install was straightforward, and I found the installation video posted with the Curt Class 3 hitch on etrailer's website very helpful!! Although the printed instructions that come with the hitch say to use a die grinder (which I don't have) to do the hole enlargement , the video mentions using a "rotary tool" (aka Dremel tool - which I do have, yay!). For a rotary tool to be effective though, the correct bit needs to be used. I purchased a Dremel tungsten carbide cutter bit (#9901) from my local hardware store and it did the trick! It's also very important to wear eye protection and gloves when doing this step as metal filings will be generated from the grinding. Once the holes are enlarged, and you've got the bolts in place, get someone to help lift the hitch in position and fasten the nuts and you're all set! :) 600523

2019 Subaru Crosstrek

I ordered the hitch and receiver cover together and both arrived within a week. Packaging was pretty straightforward and everything was organized inside the box. Instructions were clear and easy to understand with descriptive detail and photos. It is challenging to install the product on your own but if you solicit some assistance it goes rather smoothly. Great product and looking forward to getting good use out of it. 653505

  • Concealed and Visible Trailer Hitch Options for 2018 Subaru Crosstrek
  • For your 2018 Subaru Crosstrek we offer several hitch options, all shown on the linked page, that include both 1-1/4-inch Class II and 2-inch Class III types. We generally always recommend the 2-inch option when it is available since these hitches typically offer a higher weight capacity for towing and much broader compatibility with the range of available accessory items like bike racks and cargo baskets. Also among the hitch options are products that have a completely hidden crosstube,...

  • What Curt Trailer Hitches Fit a 2019 Subaru Crosstrek
  • Both the Curt trailer hitches # C12184 and # C13382 are confirmed to fit your 2019 Subaru Crosstrek.

I have attached an installation video of this hitch on a 2018 Crosstrek for you to reference. If you let me know what you plan on using the trailer hitch for I can make additional recommendations if necessary.

  • 1-1/4 inch Hitch Options for 2019 Subaru Crosstrek for Carrying Bike Rack
  • You need a hitch with a 1-1/4 inch opening based on the dimensions of the shank of your bike rack. Unlike lumber which uses arbitrary measurements for wood hitches measurements are basically exact. So for a hitch in the correct size for your bike rack for your 2019 Subaru Crosstrek we have the Curt part # C12184 which will work well. Or if you prefer a hitch that can be totally out of view when not in use we have the EcoHitch part # 306-X7366 which can have the lower hitch opening totally...
