Recommended Aero-Style Roof Rack for a 2018 Mazda 3


What roof rack do you recommend for my 2018 Mazda 3? I like the look of the aero bars but I'm not sure what would be the best option.

I recommend going with the Yakima JetStream roof rack system for your 2018 Mazda 3. These are aero-style bars that are made of aluminum so they are not only lightweight but they also have excellent corrosion resistance. The reason that I like the JetStream bars over other aero bars is that they are designed so that you don't have to remove or cut the rubber strips on the top and bottom which help cut down on the wind noise.

If you have the fixed mounting points on your roof then you need the 50" bars # Y00425 Black or # Y00428 Silver along with the SkyLine Towers # Y00148 and the Landing Pad 22 # Y00248.

If you don't have the fixed mounting points on your roof then you need the 60" long crossbars # Y00426 Black or # Y00429 Silver along with the BaseLine Towers # Y00146 and BaseClip Kits # Y06130 and # Y06132.

If you would like to add locks to the system for security then you can do so with the Yakima SKS Lock Cores # Y07204.

Attached is a photo of the roof rack for the fixed points that you can check out as well as a link to a variety of accessories that we carry which you can filter through for your application.
