Compatible Cargo Boxes for Rhino-Rack Roof Rack on a 2016 Volkswagen Golf


I have a 2016 4dr VW Golf R hatchback with a naked roof. I think I am going to purchase the Rhino Rack Vortex bars for my car but I would like to know what cargo boxes are compatible. Ideally I would like something not much longer than 6ft but that still has ample storage space. Can you tell me which boxes will fit this setup? Thanks


Expert Reply:

There are numerous cargo boxes that are compatible with Rhino-Rack roof rack # RR23QR for your 2016 Volkswagen Golf R. For a box that has the most space and can fit the roof rack you can use Thule Motion XT # TH629906. This is a massive 22 cubic foot box that has internal dimensions of 84-1/2" long x 33" wide x 16" tall.

The next step down in size is Thule Force XT Sport Item # TH6356B. This box has less space, 11 cubic feet, but it is longer at 74-3/4 inches.

And the next size down from there is Malone Cargo12 Rooftop Cargo Box - 12 cu ft - High Gloss Gray Item # MPG901 which is a 12 cubic foot box that is 55-1/8 inches long.

With all of these options, you will be able to fully open your trunk with the boxes installed.
