Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2015 Toyota Yaris with Manual Transmission

Question:

Please check and advise whether this tow bar can be used to fit onto the 2015 3-doors Yaris? If it does, can you recommend any other attachments/devices that will be required to make this towing possible? Things like signal lighting and/or auxiliary braking system? If it does not, can you recommend a comparable one? Basically I want to flat tow my 2015 Yaris with manual transmission.

A car-mount tow bar like the Blue Ox Adventurer # BX7322 is not vehicle specific but its fit will depend on using compatible base plates or adding adapters if the base plates are from a different manufacturer.

Flat towing requires a few components in addition to the tow bar. You'll also need a lighting/wiring solution, safety cables and a supplementary braking system. Each of these items is detailed in the linked article.

We offer Blue Ox base plates # BX3783 for your Yaris hatchback. With these I recommend the highly-rated Alpha tow bar, part # BX7365 since it includes the required safety cables.
