Bike Rack and Trailer Hitch

Has anyone found a bike rack that fits properly on a GT, GT Sport, or N-Line? Most places I've looked have recommended a trailer hitch rack, but I haven't had much luck finding a hitch for my N-Line. Anyone else been able to find one?

2018 Elantra GT Sport - manual -

I just bought a Thule roof rack rails system with a bike rack attachment...Thule EVO Wingbar Rails and Thule ProRide XT

I have the panoramic sunroof so it cannot be open when the rails are on it. . did not go with a hitch as i wanted to take the roof rack with me just in case....on a dual exhaust as well its not recommended.

Thanks, i'll check that out. I thought a roof rack was out of the question because of the pano sunroof, but glad to hear it's not. I called a local hitch company yesterday and they tried to find a hitch, but could not find one that fit with the dual exhaust, like you said.

No problem at all !!

don't get the square rail system, its noisy, the wing bar reduces it greatly.

Update....After purchasing the Thule EVO Wingbar Rails and Thule ProRide XT for my Sport GT with the pano sunroof...

both the tilt and slide works perfectly and there is no interference at any point when i tilted or opened the sunroof...the bike rack also works amazing...

@gmalfara glad to hear that positive feedback from a real member. Seen similar reviews but usually like to verify them with different sources.

Keep us posted on how they hold up.
