This hitch fits nicely under the bumper (GV Impreza WRX) and is not too noticeable.


Solid product. Perfect fit (the authorized Curt installers said so). Reasonably priced. The best products are the ones that do their function perfectly, no more, no less. This hitch is one of those products. The email updates on shipping status were helpful, and shipping was fast! There was _no_ cutting of the rear bumper and no extra drilling even though the instructions said there may be some drilling necessary.

Ryan, did you install on a WRX?
-- comment by: Charlie - 08/25/2014

2011 Subaru Impreza

I ordered a hitch for my Subaru Impreza to carry a Thule bike hitch rack. The hitch arrived on time. Unfortunately when we were installing the hitch, we realized that we were sent the incorrect screw/nut (3 of the 4 were correct, the 4th was the wrong size). I tried to contact etrailer, but was unable to talk to a person (long wait times the couple times I tried to call) and the company did not respond to my message sent through their website. This was disappointing as I had had no issues talking to someone prior to purchasing the hitch when I had questions. To sum, the hitch is great (5 stars) and the customer service mixed (3 stars).

2013 Subaru WRX

Fits 2013 WRX sedan..paired with c45023 drawbar.

Install was simple..did it solo. Remove bumper, remove mufflers(I removed 1 heat shield..then found out you dont nees to so 1 stayed), and drill out holes and install. If one person helps hold into place as you bolt in makes it easier..i used my body to prop it up.

At most half a day job if you live in NE like me where bolts are all rusted out. Could do it in an hour or 2.

Solid built..came fast.

2011 Subaru Impreza

I have a muffler delete on my car so the right hitch for my car just popped in place with no need to remove anything. Also the wires they give you to snake your bolts into the holes are ingenious and I need more of them in my life.

2014 Subaru Impreza

Have not installed the trailer hitch yet but everything seems to be in order. Sales people were quick to respond to my inquiries and the product arrived on time.


Great hitch. Went on my 2013 sti sedan very easily fits and works perfectly. Excellent costomer service from etrailer

2008 Subaru Impreza

The hitch went right on. Great directions in the package! Seems very sturdy built

Still very nice

  • How Visible Will CURT Trailer Hitch # 11317 Be On 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX
    The item you selected, CURT Trailer Hitch, part # 11317, will fit your 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX. The hitch will be visible from the rear and you will be able to see the cross tubing of the hitch. The hitch is designed to be tucked up out of the way, but cannot be completely hidden, as you would not be able access the receiver. With any hitch, it will be somewhat visible but the hitch manufacturer does try to design the hitch to be mounted as close to the vehicle or out of sight as much...

  • Does Curt Trailer Hitch for 2013 Subaru Impreza WRX STi Require Fascia Trimming
    The Curt Trailer Hitch part # C11317 is a confirmed fit for your son's 2013 Subaru Impreza WRX STI and would not require any modification of the lower fascia. As long as the exhaust on his vehicle is the stock dual exhaust this would fit and work well.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and 2 Bike Rack To Carry E-Bikes On 2009 Subaru Impreza Sedan
    I have another option for you, but there is not a 2" trailer hitch available for your 2009 Subaru Impreza Sedan. What I recommend instead is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # C11317 which has a 1-1/4" trailer hitch receiver and a 200lb tongue weight rating and 2000lb trailer weight rating. This rack can still carry your two E-bikes, but you will have limited options when it comes to bike racks. I recommend the Thule EasyFold XT Bike Rack for 2 Electric...

  • What Trailer Hitch Will Fit a 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX with Dual Exhaust
    I checked with CURT and the Trailer Hitch # 11317, will fit a 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX with dual exhaust. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. If you plan on doing some towing, the hitch comes with a ball mount, pin and clip. For a ball, use # 19256 (1-7/8 inch diameter) or # 19258 (2 inch diameter). For trailer wiring, use T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, # 118464. I have included a link to the installation details for the wiring as well.

  • Weight of Trailer Hitches for 2013 Subaru Impreza WRX STi
    We carry two trailer hitches that fit your 2013 Subaru Impreza WRX STi; The EcoHitch # 306-X7279 and the Curt # C11317. The EcoHitch is a more difficult install but has a much better look that the Curt. A reputable shop shouldn't have an issue doing either one though. They likely handle much more complicated repairs than any trailer hitch. The Curt is the heavier of the two, it weighs 36 pounds when packed up to ship. The EcoHitch is less at about 27 pounds for shipping.

  • What Hitch and Wiring will Fit my 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX 4 Door Sedan
    In order to determine if it will fit and what wiring is need I need to know what year your WRX is. Hitch 11315 from Curt is designed for 2008-2010 Impreza Wagons, so I doubt it is the right fit for a 4 door WRX.

  • Trailer Hitch That Fits 2013 Subaru Impreza Sedan
    While there is a trailer hitch that fits a 2013 Subaru Impreza sedan the # DT24959 you referenced only fits an Impreza 5-door wagon with a single exhaust. Instead you will need Curt Trailer Hitch # C11408 UNLESS your '13 Impreza sedan is a WRX or WRX STi model; if that is the case you will need Curt Trailer Hitch # C11317. Both of these are Class I hitches with a 1-1/4" receiver and complete bolt-on installations so you will not have to drill into your Subaru's frame.

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2013 Subaru Impreza STi for use with a Bike Rack
    If your 2013 Subaru Impreza STi is a hatchback then the trailer hitch that fits is # C11120. If it is a sedan model then you would need hitch # C11317. Since you want to use the hitch for a bike rack then you have to make sure the accessory is rated for use with a Class I trailer hitch. Also, with a bike rack, you are limited to 2 bikes maximum on a Class I hitch. I have linked the compatible bike racks for you. Curt also says you have to use stabilization strap # 18050 when using this...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Subaru Impreza
    You will need to get a new hitch for your 2013 Subaru Impreza, the Curt Hitch # C11315 that you referenced is only designed to work on Imprezas from 2008-2011 so it would not work for your 2013 even though they look similar. I would recommend the Curt Hitch # C11286 if you have a hatchback with single exhaust, Curt Hitch # C11120 if you have a hatchback WRX with quad tip exhaust, or Curt Hitch # C11317 if you have a Sedan WRX.

  • Installing Hitch Meant for 2004 Subaru Forester on 2014 Subaru Impreza
    The Curt # C12038 is a fit for the 1998-2008 Subaru Forester only, and wouldn't fit your new 2014 Impreza. For the 2014 Impreza, I'd recommend the Draw-Tite # DT24959, assuming your Impreza is a single exhaust hatchback model. For a four door sedan model, that's NOT a WRX or a WRX STi model, go with the Draw-Tite Class I, part # 24960. For a WRX or a WRX STi model, use the Curt part # C113178.

  • Trailer Hitch for 2012 Subaru WRX With Receiver That Fits Through Cutout in Bumper Fascia
    When installed, the Curt # C11317 receiver tube would sit right under the bottom edge of the rear bumper fascia. It would not use the cutout in the bumper cover. We do offer a hitch that would install in that manner, though. The EcoHitch # 306-X7279 would indeed install so that the receiver would fit through the cutout you describe. The hitch also includes a magnetic cover that would conceal the receiver opening when the hitch isn't being used. For a trailer wiring harness, you'll want...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2014 Subaru Impreza WRX Sedan
    For the 2014 Subaru Impreza WRX sedan the correct trailer hitch is # C11317 that you have referenced. The recommended ball mount is # C45521 and the pin and clip is # F-4. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19256 and for a 2 inch ball use # 19258. Trailer wiring will need to be obtained from a Subaru dealer.

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX Wagon
    The 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX has different configurations and depending on which one you have will determine which hitch, if one is available, fits. If it has single exhaust, there is no hitch option available. But, if it has quad exhaust, you can use Curt hitch # C11120. I have included a link to the installation details for you. Curt hitch # 11317, fits a 2008 to 2012 Subaru Impreza Sedan, but not the STi models. It does not fit the 5 door model (wagon). Curt hitch # C11120 fits a 2011...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2009 Subaru Impreza WRX Sedan with Dual Exhaust
    For your 2009 Subaru Impreza WRX sedan with dual exhaust, I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24807 over the Curt # C11317 because Curt requires use of a security strap for cargo carriers and bike racks that Draw-Tite does not. If you will be doing light towing with this hitch receiver, I recommend the ball mount # 3594 and hitch ball # 19256 or # 19258 for a 2 inch diameter ball. For wiring, I recommend the T-One # 118464 which is an easy installation behind...

    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11317 is specifically designed for a 2013 Subaru Impreza WRX model or WRX STI models if that is what you have it is a good hitch. I believe what you have is the standard Subaru with the single exhaust in that case the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # DT24959 is a good choice if you want the 1 1/4" receiver tube opening or the EcoHitch Invisi Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 306-X7211 if you would prefer the larger 2" receiver tube opening.

  • Compatibility of 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver with 2008 Subaru Impreza 2.5i 4 Door Sedan
    At this time there is not a 2 inch hitch option available for your 2008 Subaru Impreza sedan from any of our manufacturers. The EcoHitch # 306-X7261 is a fit for the WRX models, but is not compatible with your Sedan. I reached out to the manufacturer and although they haven't tested it for a fit, they think the frame would line up but the trim would be an issue. There is not a 2 inch option available for your vehicle as it has a very limited capacity, so only Class I hitches like #...

  • Compatibility of Thule Roadway 4 Bike Carrier TH914XT with 1-1/4 Hitch on a 2012 Subaru Impreza WRX
    Yes, you are correct the Curt 1-1/4 hitch # C11317 requires you to use a stabilization strap like the # 18050 for any non-trailer loads which means accessories like bike racks and cargo carriers. Typically the tongue weight capacity is lowered from the 1-1/4 inch hitch receivers to the 2 inch receivers, but I have seen some that are the same. The weight capacity of the Curt hitch # C11317 is 200lbs tongue weight and 2,000lbs towing. It's important to see what your vehicle is rated for...

Now you'll need a hitch installed on your vehicle so for that you'd want the Curt # C11315 for if you have a 5 door wagon with single exhaust # C11120 if you have a wagon with quad exhaust or # C11317 if you have a sedan.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for Towing Small Rental Trailer With 2008 Subaru Impreza
    I'm seeing conflicting information regarding towing with a 2008 Subaru Impreza. Online searches seem to agree that the 2008 Impreza can tow 1200kg, or about 2600 lbs if the trailer has brakes. The owner's manual bluntly states that the car isn't intended to be used as a towing vehicle and lists no capacity. I'd recommend checking with a Subaru dealer for clarification. My suspicion is that the the 1200kg towing capacity I found refers to vehicles outside the US. This wouldn't be the first...
