Thule Roof Rack Recommendation for 2016 Subaru Crosstrek


Hi, Ive matched my 2016 crosstrek on your site with the Thule aeroblade edge model 7502. Would the 7501 size also fit?


Expert Reply:

For your 2016 Subaru Crosstrek, the Thule AeroBlade Edge Aero Bar Roof Rack, part # TH7502-TH7502 is a confirmed fit as long as your vehicle has factory installed rails that run front to back. This is a great aluminum roof rack designed to reduce wind noise and drag, resulting in a very quiet ride. The crossbars simply attach to your vehicle's factory roof rails via rubber-coated stainless steel straps. I have included a video link demonstrating this roof rack for your review.

The Thule Roof Rack # TH7501-TH7501 referenced in your question will not fit your 2016 Crosstrek. The crossbars on this model are a different length than the # TH7502-TH7502 and will not properly fit between your vehicle's raised side rails.

If your Subaru Crosstrek has a naked roof (no existing rails or crossbars), then I recommend the Thule AeroBlade Edge, parts # TH7601B-TH7602B and # THKIT3068.

Lastly, I recommend the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders, part # TH450400 for your roof rack. This will securely lock the rack and any Thule One Key accessories to your side rails using a single key.
