Driving the family up to the campground? Hauling tools and equipment from the home improvement store? Pulling your boat to the nearby swimming hole? Whatever your destination and whatever trailer you're towing, Bring It® with a CURT trailer hitch!
CURT class 3 trailer hitches are designed, built and tested to accommodate a wide variety of towing applications. They are used on everything from full-size cars, vans and crossovers to light-duty pickup trucks and SUVs. Class 3 trailer hitches are perfect for towing fishing boat trailers, popup campers, ATV trailers, utility trailers and much more. They are also ideal for adding storage space to your vehicle with a hitch-mounted cargo carrier or bike rack (NOTE: Never exceed the lowest-rated towing component).
Each CURT class 3 hitch is engineered to fit on a specific vehicle. This provides the best possible fit and easiest installation. This particular custom class 3 hitch fits specific years of the Kia Niro (to verify vehicle compatibility, see the CURT application guide or use the Vehicle Lookup tool). It is designed to integrate with the vehicle's existing features and offer a reliable connection to your trailer.
This Kia Niro hitch is stringently tested in accordance with SAE J684 to ensure a weight carrying capacity of 3,500 lbs. GTW and 525 lbs. TW. It also features a 2" receiver tube opening to accept ball mount or other hitch accessory with a 2" x 2" shank.
From class 1 to class 5, all CURT custom-fit receiver hitches are made in the USA to ensure quality from design to finish (may include imported hardware). They are designed with hands-on engineering for a precise fit. They are welded using a combination of manual and robotic operations for speed and accuracy. Finally, they are finished with our unique co-curing process. Each hitch is dipped in a liquid A-coat for rust prevention, inside and out, and then co-cured in a durable black powder coat finish for maximum rust, chip and UV resistance.
Every CURT custom hitch design is thoroughly tested at our in-house testing facility in Detroit, MI. We adhere to the proposed SAE J684 testing protocols to make sure that the hitch you mount on your vehicle will be a dependable means to enjoy your lifestyle.
Whatever your passion -- whether it's hunting, fishing, camping, offroading or hard work -- you can expect reliability for the road ahead. All CURT custom hitches are covered by a limited lifetime warranty to give you confidence in each adventure, season after season.

This is the second hitch I've installed from eTrailer.com and the quality is second-to-none. I did waste some time on the installation so here are a couple of tips for the Kia Niro. My daughter has a 2018 model and I found (after spending time cutting up a trim piece) that Step 2 of the instructions should be modified to "remove the plastic trim piece from behind the rear wheel on the driver's side" There is no need to cut it as the 3x5 piece the instructions say to cut out doesn't actually get in the way. Not only is the cutting unnecessary, it also weakens the structural integrity of the trim piece. Just reinstall the trim in it's entirety and save yourself the trouble.
The other tip is for the DIY installer who has no lift and is squeezing under the vehicle while it sits on the ground: Install the passenger side bolts first. This way you can slide the hitch in over the tailpipe and bolt it up. I did the driver's side first and then found that I couldn't get the other side past the tailpipe so I was stuck with a redo. Otherwise, the install was a piece of cake.
Perfect fit. No cutting on the center trim panel. Took us 30 min. the first time. Thank You!
