Hitch Availability for a 2014 Toyota Prius-C for Bike Rack

Question:

Hi , I have a 2014 Prius C and require a 3 tier Curt hitch for bike transportation. Would that be available?

Expert Reply:

Sounds like you are looking for a Class III Curt Hitch for your Prius. I do have a bike rack solution for you with the Class I hitch. Unfortunately, due to the weight capacity of the vehicle itself our manufactures have deemed only a Class I hitch being able to be suitable for the 2014 Prius C, not a Class III hitch.

There are many great Class I hitch racks available and Hidden Hitch Class I # 60308 is a confirmed fit for your vehicle. One of my favorite racks for this size is the Thule Helium # TH9042. The Thule Helium # TH9042 has some great features also like the integrated hitch and cable locks, the new cradles that have 2 layers of cushioning and the Hold Fast anti sway cradles, and its light weight design. It is compatible with the Class I 1-1/4 inch hitch. You will want to check your owner's manual to see what your vehicle is rated for. Typically this is also listed on the placard in your drivers door.

I have linked the products to this page as well as a video of the Thule Helium and hitches being installed for your convenience.
