Best Hitch Recommendations for 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon


Which Class 2 and Class 3 hitch do you recommend for a 2018 Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium? Thanx!

Helpful Expert Reply:

For your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon the Class III hitch I would recommend is the EcoHitch part # 306-X7266 as the overall winner. It has the higher Class III towing capacities, doesn't require the stabilizer strap when carrying a bike rack like the Curt, but also because it only has the hitch opening that hangs down below the bumper so it's the least visible. It is the most expensive though so the next best option is the Draw Tite part # 75673 which is still a great hitch but it has a visible crosstube.

When there's a Class III hitch available for a vehicle I don't typically recommend a Class II unless ground clearance is a big concern as the Class III is all around the better option due to better capacities and more hitch accessories being made for that size. The Class II to go with is the part # 36493 though as it does not have the stabilizer strap requirement like the Curt like I mentioned before.
