Here is the  receiver style hitch ,model # VR8091R
 it will accept bicycle carriers and other attachments,

You and your Significant other  will love this feature,,,,No more knocking your shins on that hitch!

The hitch sits directly below the bumper,, the angle of the photo makes it look like it protrudes,

If your bumper is different,,, it may have a different mounting angle.  I am not sure what year is different yet..
It seems that the plastic bumpers on the Carat or 1990 or 1991 are different.
Please Check your Tow Loop angle with the quick home made gauge shown below  near the bottom of this page.

Below is a painted version.  model # VR8091R  receiver style

The 1990 and or 1991 Carat models.. have shown to have a different tow loop angle
Below is a way to make a gauge, or measuring tool to compare to your  vehicle tow loop angle.
Draw the Lines on a paper.. cut the paper along the RED lines... and hold the  red line up to the bottom of your loops
Eye up the horizontal line to ensure the angle is correct.
Please let me know if it is a 12 1/2 deg angle.. as almost ALL are std 22 deg

  Tow Loop angle measurement gauge to measure your vehicle tow loop angle

    Towloop Angle 12 degrees
The gauge above is for the Carat or 1991 with the 12.5 degree tow loops,, I have not encountered many of these!
