Trailer Hitch - 2018 Yaris Manual Hatchback SE

So Iíve done a quick search and it seems like all of the available hitches donít fit the SE trim models:

https://www.etrailer.com/hitch-2018_Toyota_Yaris.htm

Does anyone know why? Is it the muffler? Iím looking at getting a bike rack as I go mountain and road biking. I really donít like trunk mounts so am I restricted to adding a roof rack?

Thanks,

Michael

Not sure about 2018, but the same statement is made by them about the Gen2 S (RS for we Canadians) trim. The issue there is the trim on the rear bumper fascia impeded clearance between bottom edge of bumper and the draw bar receiver.

Thanks for the response! That makes sense.

I have a Sportrack roof rack that I got with the purchase of my 07 Hatchback.. if I look at the fit guide is says compatible to 2015 with no option for a new Yaris:

If I look at the fit guide for the Thule 480 foot packs (kit 1427), it says they will fit 207-2018 hatchbacks. Any idea why one would fit and not the other. It is the same method of installation.

Hi Michael,

Just a guess, does the backup light mounted at the bottom of the bumper have anything to do with it.

They did away with that for the 2018 model year. Reverse lights are again in the taillight assembly.
