Which Hitch for 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon is Least Visible


I have a new 2017 Subaru Outback and want a hitch for bike rack and maybe a small trailer. Which hitch is less visible from the rear sits higher Curt or Drawtite? I just had UHaul remove hitch that clanged with muffler and sat very low. Thanks

From a visibility point of view the Draw Tite hitch part # 75673 will be your best option for your 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon. This hitch is also better priced. They both sit very close to the same distance from the ground. The Curt # C13206 is 15-1/4 inches from the ground and the Draw Tite is 15 inches.

What really makes the Draw Tite less visible is that it is tucked in closer under the vehicle than the Curt. The Curt's hitch pin is 2-1/4 inches from the outer edge of the rear bumper whereas the Draw Tite has that measurement at 5 inches.

I attached pictures of both hitches. The first one with the square tube is the Draw Tite and the round tube is the Curt.
