Has anyone heard/seen any news regarding development or design plans for a Class III (2 inch) hitch receiver for the Seltos? I am an avid mountain biker and would like to get a platform hitch bike rack but I seem to only find Class I (1.25 inch) hitch receivers. I wondered if it was just because of the small size of a Seltos but other vehicles in the same series such as the Subaru Crosstrek have Class III hitch receivers available. The Crosstrek even has a lower towing capacity than the Seltos.

I have researched for awhile now and have not had any luck.

The manual says you can tow 2000 lbs as long as the tongue weight is less than 200 lbs, so a class one should be more than enough for a bike. Maybe as it becomes more popular, bigger hitches will become available. I plan on getting the Curt class 1 to tow a small utility trailer for home reno lumber and dump runs.

Yeah I saw that one, but unfortunately it says it’s not a confirmed fit for the Seltos, I reached out to etrailer but they haven’t gotten back to me.
Check there website again, I recall reading that it bolts up correctly but the valence or the plastic trim along the bottom needs minor trimming
