Question:

Will this rack fit a 2015 Honda CR-V, and does the frame swing down enough to get into the hatch? Thank you very much.

The Swagman XC 2-Bike Rack Platform Style part # S64650 will fit the 2015 Honda CR-V as long as you have a hitch on your vehicle. However, the Swagman XC 2-Bike rack is not a tilt-away rack so you need to remove the bikes from the rack to get into the rear cargo aera of the CR-V.

Instead, I recommend Swagman XTC-2 TILT 2-Bike Platform Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches part # S64671 for the 2015 Honda CR-V because it tilts away with or without the bikes loaded for rear cargo access in the Honda. I recommend to use Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock and Cable for Swagman Bike Racks part # S64030 to lock the rack and bikes.

If you do not have a hitch on the vehicle, I recommend etrailer.com hitch part # e98868. This hitch is a very simple install that does not require drilling into the frame. I have attached an installation video for your reference.

The Swagman XTC-2 Rack # S64671 should allow for hatch clearance when it's tilted back. It's hard to say for absolute certain just because we haven't physically tested this combo but based on similar vehicle's we have used the rack on there shouldn't be an issue.
