Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2015 Toyota Prius


Hi, I was looking for a good bike rack/hitch for my 2015 prius. What i did want to know is which would be my best option. I saw the hitch option, but i wanted to know if i needed to by a hitch adapter for my car as well? Thank you

The best way to carry a bike with a vehicle is a hitch mounted bike rack. They don't contact the painted surface of the vehicle like trunk racks do and they provide a more secure attachment point.

Roof rack options aren't ideal since they require a different rack for each bike, roof racks can be expensive, they require lifting the bikes to the top of the vehicle, they can cause height interference and affect gas mileage.

The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Swagman XTC2 Bike Rack part # S64670. This rack has a ton of positive reviews from our customers who have tried it. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

For a hitch the part # 24847 would be the best option to use. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.
