Helpful Expert Reply:

For your 2018 Mazda 3 Sport Hatchback, I suggest the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver Part # 24914. This is a 1-1/4" hitch receiver that provides an excellent fit with your vehicle, as well as a straightforward and easy installation. It has a tongue weight rating of 200 pounds. This is the amount of weight pushing downward on the hitch receiver.

If you are planning to transport alloy frame, mountain, step-through, or children's bikes, I suggest the Thule Helium Pro 2 Bike Hanging Style Bike Rack Part # TH9042PRO. This is a great rack for any bike that is not an e-bike or a carbon frame bike. It versatile, lightweight, and easy to install to the hitch. It also provides a tilt away feature when the bikes are not loaded to allow access to the hatch and cargo area.

The use of the Thule Bike Adapter Bar Item # TH982XT will allow you to use the rack with bikes that have alternative frames or children's bikes.

I have added below review and installation videos showing the use of all of the products listed.
