Trunk Mounted Kuat Bike Rack for 2019 Honda Fit


I have a 2019 Honda Fit and am lookign for a trunk mount bike rack. I had a Kuat rack for my hitch and loved it but sold it (new car) and want to go to a trunk mount for this car. Is there a Kuat trunk bike rack for the 2019 Fit? Does Kuat make trunk racks?


Expert Reply:

Kuat does make trunk-mounted bike racks and they will work on your 2019 Honda Fit!

The Kuat Highline is the name of the rack and it is available as a 2-bike rack # HIT2B (Black) or # HIT2S (Silver) as well as a 3-bike rack # HIT3B (Black) or # HIT3S (Silver).

The Highline is unique in that it features four clear protective strips which you will put on the rack where it contacts your Honda, which totally protects your car. This rack attaches to your Honda with six cam-buckle straps that have padded hooks on them which will also prevent damage.

The Kuat Highline excels at keeping your car looking as slick as when you bought it but it is also very good at doing its main job, which is to transport bikes. The Highline has anti-sway cradles which keep the bikes from contacting one another as well as your car, has a 35 lb per-bike capacity and weighs only 13 lbs so it is very easy to handle.

I do recommend using the Security Strap for Trunk Mounted Bike Carriers # TH533 as a method to lock the Highline to your Fit as well as Cable Lock # SA981 to lock your bikes to the rack and help protect your investments.

Additionally, please note that when using any hanging rack like the Highline you'll need bike frame adapter bar # UB01 if your bike is dual-suspension, has a step-through frame or you want to carry a small children's bike. The bar will give those bikes a horizontal mounting point so they can be carried by the rack.

I have added links to video reviews of the Highline and adapter bar for you to check out.
