Is there a way to mount a rack for cargo carrier with the panoramic sun roof on the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport?
asked by: Toms S
If your Santa Fe does not have factory-installed flush side rails that run front to back on your roof (and I believe that it does not have these) you can select the Rola Roof Rack for the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport with Panoramic Sunroof, part # 59779.
If your Santa Fe Sport does in fact have the factory-installed roof rails that run front to back on your roof, then you can use the Rola Roof Rack, part # 59766, which is intended for vehicles that do have the factory installed roof rails. Both of these rack systems use elliptical-shape crossbars.
You will want to select a cargo basket or cargo box that will work on this bar style. Thule's Canyon Roof Cargo Basket # TH859 fits elliptical bars as long as their center-to-center spread is between 20- and 37-inches. An extension piece, part # TH8591, is available if you ever need to expand the basket's capacity. If you prefer an enclosed cargo box then consider the Rhino-Rack # RMFB440. This too will fit on elliptical bars up to 3-1/2-inches wide and with a center-to-center spread of between 24-1/4-inches and 36-1/2-inches. Videos for both carriers are linked for you.
Often our customers who use a rooftop cargo carrier also like to use a tire step like the Topline # TH2100. This step comes fully-assembled, folds for easy storage and simply slips over a rear tire when you need a height advantage for loading and unloading your cargo.
