Hitch for CT

Is there a hitch out for the CT? I have been looking around and don't see anything. I would be looking for a 1.25" hitch. I go with Curt, but nothing out. Just wanted to see if there are other options. I want to put my bike rack on there. Also, a great defense for city parking also.

Curt has one out now...

I just wanted to let everybody know that the hitch is selling at Amazon for $117.13 with free shipping. But, you have to wait for it to be in stock and says 1-2 months. But, if you purchase it from etrailer they will price match it. They have it in stock and ship it out quickly. I did it with no problem. It will save you chunk of change and get it quicker.

Hmm...that's no good. Kind of annoying since we asked the sales folks point blank if Lexus would offer such a thing before we signed and they said they didn't know. I mean, if the manual SAYS "no" then at least they could have told us that.
I'll flat out ignore the no bike rack recommendation. Roof racks suck. I think the hitch for a 2010 Scion tC could be modified to fit since the tC is based on the same platform and also has a double wishbone rear suspension (unlike the Prius). Another possibility would be the HS250h hitch.

Might want to check and make sure the installation won't void your warranty. If the manual does say not to install a hitch (I haven't looked to see what it says) there is a good chance it will. I have a Thule roof rack and a hitch rack on my Highlander, I use that when taking bikes somewhere.
There is no such thing as "void your warranty". Lexus can refuse to repair issues caused by installing a hitch (assuming the manual says not to), but they cannot void your whole warranty.

I have a 2010 4Runner with a hitch mounted Thule bike carrier that I'd like to be able to use on the CT as well. I'd hate to have to buy a fuel economy sapping roof rack system, that takes forever to install and remove and damages the paint. Bleh, I might tell the wifey that she's just going to have to get a Prius v instead and I'll put my bikes inside the car!
Really?? That's interesting...thanks
Yeah, I see nothing inappropriate about it.
Thule Helium: 26 lbs.
2 Road Bikes: 50 lbs.
Hitch Weight: 23 lbs.
Total Weight: 99 lbs.
Being able to have wifey easily attach Thule bike rack and load both bikes....
I think you should reward your CT with some sub-20lb road bikes now. :p
