Cargo boxes, bags, and baskets are great for transporting gear on your vehicle's roof. A cargo box has the added benefits of an aerodynamic shape that reduces drag and wind noise, a hard shell to protect your gear, and a higher degree of weather resistance. And you can latch and lock a cargo box for added protection against theft.

Aerodynamic Cargo Box with Two-Toned Gloss Grey Finish

Cargo16 case

With 16 cu ft of space, the Malone Cargo16 has enough room for sports equipment, camping gear, or luggage for 3 to 4 people. The aerodynamic design helps reduce wind noise and drag. The locking lid opens from the passenger or driver side, and it's designed to provide clearance when you open your rear hatch. Quick-attach clamps accommodate most crossbar styles and spreads so you can install the box in minutes without tools. And the durable yet lightweight ABS plastic construction helps to prevent warping, denting, or cracking.

Sturdy, Dual-Side-Opening Lid

duel side open

The Cargo16 lid opens from both sides for easy access to your cargo. This means your gear is always close at hand whether you mount the box closer to the driver or passenger side. The extra-stiff lid helps reduce road noise and vibration, and it guards against dents and scratches.

Built-In Lock

lock key

The box includes a built-in lock on both sides to secure your gear. The locks also deter theft of the box itself because it denies access to the mounting hardware. The key can only be removed once it is in the locked position, ensuring the box is securely locked and safe for transportation. 3 locking points on both sides keep the lid secure when locked.

Universal Clamp-On Mounting Hardware

Cargo16 Mounting Clamps

The Cargo16 installs with inward-facing quick-attach mounting clamps. These clamps fit most crossbar styles, and they are inserted into the slots along the floor of the box to accommodate different crossbar spreads. To adjust a clamp, loosen the knobs and move the clamp to the desired location. Then tighten the knobs down to close the clamp around your crossbar.

Video Transcript for Malone Roof Box Review - 2014 Volkswagen Passat

Speaker 1: Today on our 2014 Volkswagen Passat, we're going to be test fitting the Malone Rooftop Cargo Box, and that's going to be part number MPG902.If we take a look at some of the features visible from standing right here, we're going to see that it has a very nice aerodynamic shape to it. So while it's installed in your traveling, it's going to cut down on wind noise and drag while it's up there, and your gas mileage shouldn't be affected too much.If we take a look from the front of the vehicle, we're going to see that it's a very narrow cargo box, and so while we have it pushed to the right side of our vehicle, we're going to see on the other side we could fit another accessory even on our smaller sedan. If you wanted to put a bike rack up there, you could choose to do that. You just want to be sure you double check the weight that you might have in your cargo box or on the other accessory and make sure that the roof rack and the vehicle roof can handle that weight.When we come to the back of the vehicle, we're going to see that even with our cargo box installed, we have no problem trying to access the trunk of our vehicle. You can see there's plenty of space, so you're going to have no problem right there. We're going to see we have four different points of contact where our cargo box is secured to the roof rack.

We're going to have these clamps that kind of look like hooks that come out from the bottom of our cargo box and wrap around our crossbars right here, and they simply tighten from the inside. We have four hooks, two on the back and two on the front. I'll show you how to put the last hook on in a little bit.These hooks also are adjustable back and forth to meet a wide variety of spreads you might have on your different roof rack systems. These clamps also can accommodate to a lot of different variety of different crossbars you might have whether it's an aftermarket roof rack or even a factory style roof rack. You can see we have aerodynamic crossbars right here, but it can also fit elliptical style, square bars, or even round bars.

You just want to be sure to keep in mind that the minimum size bar required to fit this cargo box is 1" wide by 3/4" tall. So make sure you have big enough crossbars to be able to fit this cargo box.We take a look on the inside. I'm going to come over here and see this lock right here. Now this is how we open it. You will receive a set of keys with your cargo box.

You simply just insert the key, turn it to the right to unlock it, and we can simply lift up our lid, and it's going to keep itself open by these to arms on the front and the back. I'm going to grab my ladder right here, so I can step up and show you guys some features on the inside. Now even though this is a narrow cargo box, you're still going to have 6 cubit feet of space to use up here, which is still a lot of room, especially for a smaller vehicle like this sedan, for you to be hauling.Now I'm going to show you guys how to install the last clamp. I'm going to step in closer with my ladder. So when we get up here, we're going to see that we have our other hook.

We have the tightening bolts, we have the bracket that goes between the bolt of the hook and the tightening bolt, and then we have a tightening tool right here for when we get it tight enough with our hand we can turn it a few times with that.So how we're going to start, we're going to grab our hook. Want to come to the bottom side of our cargo box and simple feed it up through that hole like so. You want to hold it there. Want to grab our bracket. Want to slide that over like so. Now we can grab our tightening bolt. You want to make sure you thread it onto the bolt. Once you get it threaded, can start tightening it down. You want to make sure that the bracket stays with this edge right here. You don't want it to turn like that. You need to have it flush with the edge.So once we get it tight enough with our hands, we're going to grab out tightening tool and tighten it a few more times. Now that we have that, we can grab out tightening tool and insert those prongs right there and just turn it more. As you can see, our rooftop box is secure to our roof rack. You can store your tightening tool in the cargo box if you choose or you can store it in your vehicle, whatever you prefer.Now up top inside, you are going to get a set a straps for if you don't have your cargo box full, you could strap down your items that you have inside so they don't shift too much while you're traveling. How we're going to enclose our box is we're simply just going to grab the top of our lid and pull down until the arms break down, and it just slides right over that lip. Once you're done you can just lock it like so, and you're all good to go. Now, this rooftop cargo box can open from both sides. You're going to have the same exact system with a lock on the other side of our cargo box, and if you choose to put it on the left side of your vehicle, you can open it from that side too.The weight capacity for this cargo box is 165 pounds, but you do want to be sure to double check your vehicle manual and the instructions for your roof rack to make sure that they both can handle the weight, also keeping in mind that our rooftop cargo box does weigh 26 pounds. There you have it for the Malone Rooftop Cargo Box on our 2014 Volkswagen Passat.

Malone Cargo16 Rooftop Cargo Box - 16 cu ft - High Gloss Silver - MPG902

Average Customer Rating:  4.0 out of 5 stars   (2 Customer Reviews)

76-3/8 x 27-7/8 x 18-7/8. Roof box mounts to your crossbars with quick-attach clamps. Locking lid opens from either side of your vehicle. Great for carrying sports equipment and luggage for 3 - 4 people. Durable ABS plastic construction.

- MPG902

Pro: This box is a perfect option to add to the cargo capacity of my Toyota RAV4. Great for camping, fishing or skiing trips (but watch out that your XC skies don't exceed the length capacity of the box!). Pro: The box fits onto Malone cross bars very securely: once screwed down it's solid. Install and removal is very easy. Con: The front arm that holds the box lid open is attached with a rubber-covered pin at the front, and a metal retainer at the rear, see photos. Without the locking metal retainer, the front arm pops loose off the lid's pin. Initially I thought this was a mfg defect, but this is how it's built. etrailer contacted Malone and both provided great support. Malone sent me a new rubber grommet to insert on the pin at the front arm. But that didn't fix the problem at all. In the end, I replaced the rubber grommet with a metal bolt that permanently attaches the front support arm with the box lid. Would I buy this product again? Probably not. 681660

- MPG902

After using this roof box for the past year, I can say with experience that it is just what I was looking for. It's the right length for skis and snowboards and wide enough to fit several pairs. It also has enough height to fit additional gear on top of the skis and boards. I usually throw and couple duffles and my cooler on top. The duel hinge feature is quite nice when loading/unloading on the street. The product seems to be pretty durable and made of high quality materials. The box attaches to roof rack crossbars solidly. When it is loaded there is very little to no movement while driving at highway speeds. 601371

  • Best Cargo Box For Limited Hatch Clearance On 2014 Hyundai Elantra
    I am happy to help you find a box that fits your factory crossbar spread on the 2014 Hyundai Elantra. The original box ordered, Malone Cargo12 Rooftop Cargo Box part # MPG901 required a cross bar spread of 24" to 28" to fit. Since your cross bar spread is 31" the Malone Cargo16 Rooftop Cargo Box part # MPG902 will fit your cross bar spread because it can fit cross bar spreads from 24" to 40". However, it requires at least 16 inches from the rear bar to the hatch opening. Since you are right...

  • Will the Malone Profile18S Rooftop Cargo Box Clear the Hatch On a 2015 Subaru Forester
    The Malone Profile18S Rooftop Cargo Box part # MPG910 will fit a 2015 Subaru Forester no matter what crossbars you are using. That said, if you want to be sure that you can open your rear hatch fully with the cargo box attached you will need to do some measuring. If you have a bare roof with fixed mounting point then I can confirm the Malone Profile18S will clear the rear hatch but if you have raised side rails then you will need to move the front crossbar all the way up and then move the...

  • Roof Mount Cargo Box for a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee with Factory Roof Rack
    The SportRack Horizon cargo box # SR7017 has a good chance of interfering with the rear hatch on your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee because it is a u-bolt mounted box with limited positioning options. For a good economical box that is a much better fit take a look at the Malone box # MPG902. This box has mounting feet that fit a crossbar spread of 24 to 40 inches from the center of one bar to the center of the other. The mounting feet can slide so you will be able to position the box more...

  • Cargo box and Roof Rack Recommendation For 2019 Nissan Rogue
    Cargo Boxes are not technically vehicle specific, as long as you have a roof rack on the vehicle you can use a cargo box that is compatible with the bars that you have. The Car Top Cargo Rooftop Cargo Box part # CTC-18S fits the most round, square, aero, elliptical, and factory crossbar as long as they are no bigger than 3-3/4" wide x 1-3/16" tall. You will also need a cross bar spread of 22". Measure from the center of the rear cross bar to the center of the front cross bar for the cross...

  • Will the Malone Cargo12 Rooftop Cargo Box Fit a 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon
    The correct way to measure the crossbar spacing on a vehicle is from the center of the front crossbar to the center of the rear crossbar. WIth that being said it looks like you measured correctly as the research I was able to gather indicates that you have a 30" crossbar spacing on your 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon. Therefore, the Malone Cargo12 Rooftop Cargo Box part # MPG901 will not work for you. Instead, I recommend using the Malone Cargo16 Rooftop Cargo Box part # MPG902 which will...

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Luggage System for 2013 Toyota Venza
    For your 2013 Toyota Venza, I recommend the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack for Naked Roofs - Vortex Aero Crossbars # RR37YR. This is a confirmed fit for your Venza and I've attached a video to assist with installation. Since you will be carrying luggage, I also recommend the Rola Platypus Expandable Roof Top Bag # 59100 or a roof box like # MPG902 for a quality and cost effective option. Let me know if you have further questions.

    The SportRack SkyLine XL Cargo Box # SR7095 that you referenced will fit the factory crossbars on your 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon, however I don't believe it's going to work with the crossbar spread (distance between the two bars, on center). This particular box works with a very specific crossbar spread of 21-1/2" and based on my research the factory crossbars on your Outback have a spread of 30 inches, although you can take a quick measurement to verify this.
