While the SportRack Horizon Rooftop Cargo Box # SR7011 will fit the factory installed roof rack on your 2019 Mazda CX-3, it's just a little too long to allow you to fully open your rear hatch. For the hatch to fully open with the # SR7011 installed, there must be at least 52-1/2 inches measured from the center of the front crossbar to the line where the roof and hatch meet (see photo). If you can live with that, the roof box will otherwise fit nicely around your factory cross bars and will also work perfectly with their 26 inch crossbar spread (distance between front and rear crossbars on center).

According to Yakima, your CX-3 with the factory roof rack has a hatch clearance of 48 inches. So, if you'd like to be able to fully open your hath, a similar option, and the one I recommend is the SportRack Horizon Rooftop Cargo Box # SR7016.

I also attached a link to a page where you can see a list of roof boxes and their required clearance.

Question:

Hello Carla: Thank you for your prompt response. Are there other choices of cargo box for my 2019 Mazda CX-3? Maybe multi color and not too long.

Sure, take a look at the Thule Sidekick Roof Mounted Cargo Carrier Box # TH78GC. This one is just 54" long and offers 12 cubic feet of space to fit quite a bit of gear. I'm not sure what you meant by multi color.

If you're looking for something more specific, and the # TH78GC doesn't fit the bill, feel free to share with me what type of cargo you plan on carrying on top of your roof so we can explore other options.
