The Curt 13135 in the post above yours could be the one you want. Hard to tell if it has the needed clearances. Are the XV and Impreza muffler and hangers the same?
The OEM tow hitch for the XV is installed by removing the original bumper and sliding additional supports into the frame tube. If you don't want to enlarge the holes on the bottom, you could take the long route and send the bolts through here when installing the Curt hitch.
