Toyota Corolla Cross: Hitch

Trailer hitch assemblies have different weight capacities. Toyota recommends the use of Toyota hitch/bracket for your vehicle. For details, contact your Toyota dealer.

  • If you wish to install a trailer hitch, contact your Toyota dealer.
  • Use only a hitch that conforms to the gross trailer weight requirement of your vehicle.
  • Follow the directions supplied by the hitch manufacturer.
  • Lubricate the hitch ball with a light coating of grease.
  • Remove the hitch ball whenever you are not towing a trailer. Remove the trailer hitch if you do not need it.

    After removing the hitch, seal any mounting hole in the vehicle body to prevent entry of any substances into the vehicle.



Trailer hitch assemblies have different weight capacities established by the hitch manufacturer.

Even though the vehicle may be physically capable of towing a higher weight, the operator must determine the maximum weight rating of the particular hitch assembly and never exceed the maximum weight rating specified for the trailer-hitch. Exceeding the maximum weight rating set by the trailer-hitch manufacturer can cause an accident resulting in death or serious personal injuries.


■When installing a trailer hitch

Use only the position recommended by your Toyota dealer.

Do not install the trailer hitch on the bumper; this may cause body damage.
