Great product for my Kia Niro Plugin. As previous reviews have noted, the plug-in requires a slight modification in notching the passenger side to accommodate an electrical conduit, but other than that the hitch and hardware all worked as planned. I was able to install by myself with the aid of some floor stands, although I'd recommend having a friend for this part as the hitch is measured very precisely and would be easier to push into place with two people. 602282

I've had this hitch for my 2019 Kia Niro Plug-In hybrid for about a year. The fit was a bit tight, and I needed to spread the ends a few millimeters in order to get the hitch to slide in place. Once I spread the ends though, the hitch slid nicely in place, taking about 15-30 min to install. I've been using it for my Kuat bike rack most days since, and love the way the hitch looks and works! 729076

Although the pictures on the instructions were a little hard to make out the installation was easy enough but you will have to be strong or have some help. The trailer is very solid and inexpensive. Comes with all the hardware you need to bolt it up. I would recommend supporting the exhaust with something 6-8 inches tall like a block of wood or something so as to not cause too much stress on the front exhaust connections. 380983

My brother recommended etrailer when I decided to purchase a hitch kit for my 2019 Kia Niro. I plan to haul at least two dirt bikes and likely my camping gear from time to time. My need was sparked by spring cleaning when I realized how much junk needed hauled out of my life. I was impressed at how easy and accurate the search tool and the filters were. I found my make and model and the products that fit my vehicle so easily I was truly amazed. I immediately noticed that every product that etrailer sells had a list of very detailed reviews, installation videos, recommended tools and lots of other information. I purchased a Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" and a T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector. I watched the accompanying video for the hitch installation one time all the way through. I was able to gather all the tools and get my vehicle set in just a few minutes. I revisited the video three or four times throughout the process. The hitch went on just as smoothly as the video showed and I am confident that it will reliably haul exactly what its rated for. The hitch fits nicely and is tucked safely below the fascia where you won't wack your ankles on it. It is clean, sturdy and rust resistant. I look forward to my first haul. I have yet to install the wiring harness but only because I ran out of time over the weekend. I will update my review when I have completed the installation of the wiring harness. 809702

The trailer hitch is awesome. It was a breeze to install. It only took me maybe 30 minutes. The video on etrailer is a huge help. The only downside is the plastic that you have to notch or cut isn’t very secure being help by 3 plastic anchor pins with no anchor at the top I am slightly disappointed in that. I used some flex seal tape to secure it better. We will see how long that will last. I worry it will fly off going down the I-90 at 70mph. We will see. 808109

  • Is It Safe To Remove Exhaust Shield For Curt Hitch Installation On 2018 Kia Niro
    The Curt Trailer Hitch part # C13329 for the 2018 Kia Niro does require the exhaust shield to be removed during installation or the hitch will not fit into place. It not a piece that can be reinstalled because there will not be enough room between the exhaust and the hitch for hitch to fit into place. However, the metal hitch will now act as a heat shield for your exhaust. You are not removing the main heat shield between the exhaust and the vehicle so there is not anything to worry about...

    I checked with Curt and the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13329 is a confirmed fit for the non-PHEV version of the 2019 Kia Niro like what you have so this would work well for you. It's a Class III hitch with a 2 inch opening and has a concealed crosstube so it's less visible than other hitches. If you need trailer wiring too we have the T-One kit part # 118749 would be what I recommend. It's a custom fit that won't require any splicing and it has the most reliable converter box of...

  • 4 Bike Rack Recommendation for 2018 Kia Niro
    Sounds like you are getting a lot of conflicting info on fitting a 4-bike hitch rack to your 2018 Kia Niro. I can help you accomplish carrying a 4-bike rack with your vehicle but we do not offer a 2 inch hitch for your vehicle. Reason being that 2 inch hitches are only used typically on larger vehicles with heavier capacities. But since the Curt hitch for your vehicle part # C13329 is a Class II it can allow you to carry a 4 bike rack. Only issue is that none of the Class II 4-bike racks...

  • Can a Weight Distribution System be Used with Curt Trailer Hitch on 2019 Kia Niro
    That's a great question! The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13329 for your 2019 Kia Niro cannot be used with a weight distribution (WD) system. Curt has determined that it would put too much stress on the trailer hitch so they cannot recommend using it. Normally in this case I would recommend using a suspension enhancement solution but so far (Sept. 2019) there aren't any for a Kia Niro so I recommend either making sure you tow a smaller trailer or that you use a different vehicle...

  • Does Curt Hitch # C13329 Fit 2019 Kia Niro Hybrid
    The Curt hitch part # C13329 is not listed as a fit for the Plug In Hybrid versions of the 2019 Kia Niro although we had one customer come back and say they were able to install it on a plug in version but they had to modify the hitch and the vehicle to do so.

  • Will Installing a Trailer Hitch Reduce the Ground Clearance on a 2018 Kia Niro
    If that 6.3 inches is measured at the bottom of the rear fascia on the 2018 Kia Niro then yes, a trailer hitch such as # C13329 installed would reduce the ground clearance by about 2-1/2 inches. But there could be something under the vehicle that is even lower than the fascia. So really it depends on where the measurement is being taken.

  • Removing The Heat Shield To Install The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver On The 2017 Kia Niro.
    I talked to my contact at Curt Manufacturing and they advised me that when installing Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13329 to your 2017 Kia Niro, the heat shield needs to be removed to reach the access points to bolt the hitch to the frame of the car. Removing the shield, and then installing the hitch, will not compromise the integrity of your vehicle. Many vehicles require the heat shield to be removed to complete this install.

    You are right that the exhaust shield on your 2019 Kia Niro needs to be permanently removed to install the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13329, however there's no need to be concerned about missing it. Once the trailer hitch is in place, it will actually take over the shield's duties of protecting the exhaust and will do just as good a job. You do not need to be worried about any effect on performance, safety, or warranty after installation. I have attached an installation video and...

  • Will Backup Sensors and Camera Be Affected When Transporting Bikes on 2019 Kia Niro PHEV
    I do have a great option for you, however there isn't a trailer hitch available that's designed to fit your 2019 Kia Niro PHEV (plug-in Hybrid). With this in mind your best option for transporting a couple bikes is with a trunk-mount bike rack. For this I highly recommend the Yakima FullBack 2 Bike Rack # Y02634, which is confirmed to fit your vehicle.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch And Bike Carrier For 2017 Kia Niro
    The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2017 Niro is the Curt Hitch # C13329. This is a Class lll hitch and it has a 2-inch receiver opening. I recommend the Class lll because there are many more accessories for 2-inch receivers available that there are for 1-1/4 inch Class l or Class ll hitches. The Dr. Tray bike carrier, # Y02474 has a 40-lb weight capacity per bike so it is not capable of carrying 120-lbs as you said. I do have a better option for you. I recommend the Kuat NV...

This trailer hitch is designed for the 2017-2018 Kia Niro and no drilling will be required, as it will use existing mounting holes in the vehicle's frame. The exhaust will need to be temporarily lowered and some minor trimming on the plastic panel will be required during installation.

  • Is Tongue Weight Rating for Curt Trailer Hitch the Same for 2019 Kia Niro
    The 525 lb tongue weight (TW) rating and 3,500 lb trailer tow rating for the Curt Trailer Hitch # C13329 is tested and determined independently of your 2019 Kia Niro. Basically Curt (or any other trailer hitch manufacturer) would sure that it fits the vehicle and then they strength-test it which would include hitting a bump in the road or whatever else you would encounter. I tried looking up weight ratings for your Niro but the online owner's manual stated that they don't recommend using...

    Sounds like you are looking for a ball mount to go with a hitch like the Curt part # C13329 which is a confirmed fit for your 2017 Kia Niro. Our hitches do not come with ball mounts for towing as not everyone tows a trailer with their hitch. Since you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900.

If it's lower than the hitch capacity you have to go by the lower rated figure as the overall capacity. For trailer wiring you then would want the part # C56376.

  • Best Way to Carry Bikes on a 2018 Kia Niro That Will Allow Rear Cargo Access
    I have a solution for you, but there are no trunk mounted bike racks that will allow you to open the hatch with bikes still attached to it. The other issue you're going to run up against is that most Kia Niro models have a spoiler at the back of the vehicle that makes attaching truck mounted bike racks problematic and not advisable. The best solution for carrying bikes is adding a trailer hitch to your 2018 Kia Niro like the Curt # C13329 and then using a swing away bike carrier like...

    For your leased 2019 Kia Niro the best option will be a trailer hitch mounted bike rack since the hitches that fit your vehicle like the Curt # C13329 do not require drilling. You will have to remove a heat shield but when you go to return the vehicle you'd just want to remove the hitch and reinstall the heat shield and they'll never know.

This is really important because when using it for accessories such as bike racks and cargo carriers, a 2 inch receiver is going to have a much wider range of higher-quality options to choose from.
