Will a Yakima SkyBox Fit a 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe with Factory Roof Rack


Is any Yakima Skybox safe to attach to Hyundai Santa Fe 2017 roof rack with crossbars. If no, what would be.


Expert Reply:

I checked with Yakima and they do not recommend the use of any of their roof boxes for use on the FACTORY roof rack on the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe. The issue is that the Yakima mounting hardware cannot get tight enough on the factory bars. If it is an aftermarket roof rack then they would be fine.

I also checked Thule and they do have options for models that have the factory roof rack. They specifically recommend the Motion line:

# TH6297B or # TH6297T for 16 cubic feet
# TH6298B or # TH6298T for 18 cubic feet
# TH6299B or # TH6299T for 22 cubic feet

The Thule boxes have a different style of mounting hardware which is why they will work with the factory roof rack on the Santa Fe.
