The Thule Passage 2 Bike Carrier part # TH910XT fits the 2007 Toyota Prius. It also fits the 2004 - 2015 Toyota Prius, the 2012 - 2017 Toyota Prius v with or without the spoiler and 2012 - 2019 Toyota Prius c without spoiler.

The Thule Passage 2 Bike Carrier is a great option for a trunk mount rack because of it's fit dial system that fits the contours of your vehicle for a snug fit. I have attached a video for your reference. If you have a step through frame which is standard on women's and children's bike you will need the Adapter Bar for Women's and Alternative Frame Bikes part # 64005 to give the big a horizontal bar to hang from.

Thule is well known for making quality products but you may consider adding a hitch to the Prius because hitch mounted bike racks are easier to use. You won't have to take the bike rack on and off the vehicle when you want to use the trunk if you install a hitch.

I recommend to add Draw-Tite Class I Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24808 to the Prius. The Draw-Tite will give you a receiver at the rear of the Prius for a bike rack. The install is pretty simple, it does not require drilling. The hitch bolts right up to the frame and can be installed at home. I have attached an installation video for your reference.

Then you can use the Malone RunWay 2-Bike Platform Rack, part # MPG2149 for your bikes which is a tilt away bike rack to allow access to the rear cargo area and mot importantly, it features a considerable rise in the shank to make sure you have plenty of ground clearance, since the hitch on the Prius will sit fairly close to the ground. I have attached a video for your reference.. I have attached a video for your reference. You will also need the adapter bar with this rack as well if you have a slanted cross tube frame bike.
