With your Niro, the last thing you want to do is miss out on accessing all the possibilities when it comes to traveling. One possibility would be our Kia Niro PHEV trailer hitch.

Kia Niro PHEV Towing

As with any vehicle towing, you will want to refer to your vehicle owners manual. Our Kia Niro PHEV hitch has a carry capacity of 525 pounds and 3,500 towing capacity.** We want to ensure that our hitch is over-durable for whatever you have planned in your future.

Installation Steps

Step 1: Start by removing the 3 clips on the bottom of the plastic panel, as well as the panel and the plastic nut.

Step 2: Remove the exhaust rubber and the plastic cover.

Step 3: Using the supplied bolt fisher, and following the diagrams in the provided instruction booklet, insert the hardware in the appropriate holes.

Step 4: Assemble the hardware and insert to the hole on the cross member bracket.

Step 5: Attach the plastic panel back to the frame using the clips and plastic nuts from step 1 and reinstall all factory components with the original hardware.

These installation steps are simplified for your reading pleasure. In order to further learn the technical details of the Ecohitch install, please send a request to [email protected].

**Although your EcoHitch® tongue weight and tow weight rating might be exceedingly high – this is because we build our hitches to withstand all kinds of beatings – your vehicle’s towing capacity could be lower. Please consult your vehicle’s owners manual to determine your factory tow weight rating and never exceed it. No aftermarket products can increase your factory tow weight rating. If your vehicle's tow rating is less than the rated towing capacity on your EcoHitch® trailer hitch, your trailer hitch capacity is limited to your vehicle's factory rated towing capacity. Please check your owner’s manual to confirm your vehicle is rated to tow.
