2012 Sorento Hitch Wiring

I have a 2012 Sorento 4cyl no towing pkg. Is the Reese 78067 or Curt 56328 the right ones? The pictures on their websites don't look like its the right one. I need the one that has the wire running to the battery for power.

The Curt 56328 should be the right one.. I don't know about the Reese. etrailer.com has a fit guide so you can confirm, but here's what I see for a 2012:

I used the e-trailer site to watch the install vid and find what kit I need. When I found it, bought the Curt stuff from Amazon. The Curt wiring is plug and play so no splicing. Can an eye on the hot lead, the wire connected to the battery to the trailer harness. After a few years, mine got corroded to the point that it was causing a parasatic battery drain. My guess is that installing that wire underneath exposed it to the elements more than others even though it's insulated. I'm in a salt state.
