Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2015 Mazda 3 Sedan


Hi, looks like there are 2 options for my 2015 Mazda 3 sedan - the Curt C11377 or the Draw-Tite 24914. There was a comment in the Curt reviews indicating that the Curt hitch didnt align with his 2015 Mazda 3 isport sedan frame holes. I just have a 2015 Mazda 3 sedan grand touring I think, not the sport. Prefer the look of the Curt over the Draw-Tite, but wondering if I need to move away from the Curt for an easier install? Thanks,

As you mentioned, both the Curt Class I # C11377 and the Draw-Tite Class I # 24912 Trailer Hitches are confirmed to fit your 2015 Mazda 3 Sedan Grand Touring.

Both hitches will work with all models of the Mazda 3 Sedan, however the Draw-Tite # 24912, as you referenced, is going to be a considerably easier installation process and will take about half the time as the Curt Trailer Hitch. Also keep in mind that per Curt warranty guidelines, all non-trailer loads such as bike racks and cargo carriers must be supported with stabilizing straps like # 18050. Draw-Tite does not have this same requirement with their trailer hitches.

For that reason and the easier installation, I recommend going with the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch on your Mazda 3 Sedan. I have attached the installation details for you to look over. This hitch will provide a 200 pound tongue weight capacity and a 2,000 pound towing weight capacity, although you will also want to check the vehicle capacities as listed in the owner's manual.
