If Kia is smart they will have the tow package be something that is easily bolted on much like how other packages are setup.

Giving customers that option will help them a bit in sales since this can be the make it or break it thing for some people.

That would be ideal, at that point majority of the consumers can do it themselves and would opt to buy it

That or have the dealership or some independent shop do it for them, all for cheap. Should't be more than an hour, even 30min might be possible, if it's a bolt on how hard and time consuming can it be?

Shouldn't be time consuming at all if it's a bolt on. Really hope to see it as an easy to install/remove bolt on though. Hopefully they don't try to complicate it

There is a tow package available in the UK. I have not looked to see if there is an easy connection for the travailing lights though. I'm interested in a hidden type receiver that I can install my rear bike rack to, so if anyone hears of that, please post it here

I installed a hitch on my 2011 Tucson in about 20 minutes. Bolts torqued to spec. Of course it was designed for the Tucson's under carriage. I think that once there are more of these on the road, we'll see some after market solutions.
