EcoHitch and Recommended Bike Rack for a 2018 Subaru Crosstrek


Is there an Ecohitch that fits a 2018 Subaru Crosstrek? I like the hidden style but I don't know which one will fit so I can carry my bikes. I don't have a bike rack yet either so if you could point me in the right direction it would be appreciated.

We do have both a 1-1/4" EcoHitch # 306-X7366 and a 2" EcoHitch # 306-X7365 that are confirmed to fit your 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. Out of both options I recommend going with the 2" receiver as it allows you to use a wider variety of accessories like a bike rack.

I have attached an installation video that you can check out. The installation is identical for both trailer hitches so it is a good reference no matter which way you go.

If you don't already have a bike rack then I highly recommend the Kuat NV 2.0 Base # BA22B because it combines a great look with usability that competes with other top-notch bike racks out there. This bike rack not only includes the everyday tilting/folding and locks like most bike racks today, but it also allows you to carry up to 2 bikes weighing in at 60 lbs, and can accommodate bigger and smaller tire/wheel sizes with parts # APBK and # 016-025-00-00 respectively.

Aside from being compatible with any bike frame style that doesn't incorporate fenders you also have the option of a 2-bike add-on # BA02B and a bike repair stand # TDKB.

Attached is a review video of this bike rack on a Subaru for you to check out.
