The SportRack Horizon Rooftop Cargo Box - 11 cu ft # SR7011 is 21" wide, so since your side rails are 38" apart you won't have an issue fitting this between the rails. Also, crossbars will raise the box over the side rails which will allow for a wider box to be added. For a crossbar setup, I recommend going with the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack - Aero Crossbars 50" # MPG215 which is a very affordable option. These are low-profile aerodynamic crossbars that feature the common T-slot channel on top for channel-mounted accessories. You could also go with the longer 58" version # MPG216 instead.

One last thing to keep in mind is that the SportRack box is rather long and may interfere with opening the rear hatch. To clear the hatch, this box requires a minimum distance of 52-1/2" from the center of the front crossbar to the line where the roof and trunk meet. Since you don't have crossbars yet, you will need to measure from the point on the side rails where the front crossbar will attach. To get an idea of where this will be, the Malone crossbars need to be spaced out about 27.5" from each other so you can measure your side rails and find the front-most portion that will allow the crossbars to be mounted and measure back to the line where the roof and trunk meet. If it is less than 52-1/2" then I recommend going with a shorter box to allow usage of rear hatch.
