Does Thule Motion XT Roof Cargo Box Fit 2018 Subaru Forester


Hello, we have a 2018 Forrester and are thinking of buying the Thule 6297 motion XT, 16 cu ft. Do we need to buy the cross bars too? And can a regular person install it or do I have to go to a dealer?


Expert Reply:

If your 2018 Subaru Forester has factory crossbars the Thule Motion XT Cargo Box part # TH629706 would fit directly without requiring additional roof rack components but if you do not have factory bars you would need to install an aftermarket set like the Malone AirFlow2 roof rack part # MPG215 which is a confirmed fit. This kit is very easy to install and you'd have no problem with it.

I attached an install video for this rack on a similar 2018 Subaru Forester as yours for you to check out as well.
