Review of the Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier on a 2014 Kia Sportage

Today on our 2014 Kia Sportage, we're going to take a look at the 20 x 60 CURT Cargo Carrier for 2 inch hitches only. That part number is C18151. Now, we already have it on our vehicle. I'm just going to show you a few features of it. The first feature I'd like to show, with the mesh bottom, it pretty much keeps out your dirt and debris. It also has a nice little black powder-coat that's going to help from rust and corrosion. It can hold up to 500 pounds.

Very sturdy. Let's go ahead and take a few measurements, just to show you overall distance first. Overall distance, I'm looking at 32 inches. Our closest point, I'm looking at 11-1/4 inches. For our ground clearance, I'm looking at 11 inches. While our cargo carrier is empty, you can see you can get in and out of your hatch. We always want to give you the break point so you still can get in your hatch.

Right here, I'm looking at 34 inches. Just keep that in mind when you're loading up your cargo carrier. You don't want to go over 34 inches so you can still get in and out of your hatch. Now with the Kia Sportage, it has the exhaust system on the bottom, here on the passenger side, and it is pointing downward. If you have any heat sensitive materials, you should be okay wherever you put them. The one thing about the CURT Cargo Carrier here, it has a folding position. We're going to go ahead and do that.

We can either take our pin and clip out here, go ahead and bring it up. Insert our pin and clip again. Now I'm going to take two more measurements just to show you overall distance and closest to our vehicle. Overall distance, I'm looking at 11 inches. For our closest, I'm showing up here at 3 inches, but I'm going to go down here and that's showing approximately 2 inches down there. With the CURT Cargo Carrier, like I said, it's for 2 inch hitches only.

It does not come with a pin and clip, but you can find it on our website. That part number is PC3. We also have other anti-rattle bolts and clips on our website. That's going to complete our look at the 20 x 60 CURT Cargo carrier. The part number again is C18151, on today's 2014 Kia Sportage. Let's see how it does on our test course. Here it is on our test course. First is the slalom area, which simulates side to side action, like turning the corners or evasive maneuvers. Next are the alternate speed bumps, which show you the twisting action, like hitting a pothole, road debris or hitting a curb. Finally, we are at the solid speed bumps, which show you up and down action to simulate a parking garage or coming out of your driveway.
