I'm looking to fit my Fiesta ST with a hidden tow hitch within the next 6 months, with the intention of towing a one (or two) motorcycle open air trailer. Has anyone installed a hitch on their car? Have any pictures/how does it look, and which one did you use? I would think the car has enough power to pull a motorcycle or two (so long as it's not a heavy Harley).

Eh I would personally stray away from towing with it, the car does have enough torque, but with it being SO low, that hitch would damn near be on the ground once installed, nonetheless loaded up with over 500#. You'd be scraping the hitch/tongue all over unless the roads you're on a pretty flat and well maintained.

I'd avoid towing anything serious. I could see a little track wheel and tool box trailer but beyond that I wouldn't. It's a small engine and turbo and really not a car built for towing. And two bikes on an open trailer is probably still pushing 1000lbs which is over a third of the cars weight.
