Post by: carid on February 02, 2016, 12:58:32 pm
If you want to tow a trailer with your Fiat 500 or use hitch mount accessories like a rear bicycle carrier you need a proper trailer hitch. 

CURT® - Class 3 Black Trailer Hitch with Receiver Opening is one of the most popular models and we have it available for the 2016 Fiat 500X: http://www.carid.com/2016-fiat-500x-trailer-hitches/curt-rear-trailer-hitches-81524255.html

These trailer hitches allow the use of equalizing hitches to transfer excess tongue weight to the front axle of the vehicle. It is also a handy place to mount a bicycle rack, cargo carrier or other receiver-mounted accessory.

Just a quick couple of points for clarification. :thumb:


Is this fitment just Fiat 500 and not Abarth 500?

You also show a link to the Fiat 500X.

Do you have to saw the rear diffuser for it to fit? Also, does it fit with the standard 500 abarth exhaust and the Monza? I know a lot of systems don't fit because of the exhausts.

Thanks

I am quite surprised that the tow bar hitch will fit the Fiat 500 / Abarth 500.

In 2014 I bought part no #11347 from a Curt approved retailer in the States. When it came to fitting at an multi-brand approved fitter, they said the mounting holes were reversed.

I still have the hitch at home in the garage gathering dust. I can send you photos if you like to vertify whether it is identical to that shown on the website.
