Review of the Thule Roof Box on a 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek


Speaker 1: Today on our 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek, we're gonna be testing the Thule Motion XT Rooftop Cargo Box, Part Number TH6297B. This will also come in Titan Glossy as Part Number TH6297T.The Thule Motion XT Cargo Box is great for carrying a wide variety of accessories ranging from luggage, to camping gear, to skis, anything you want to keep out of your vehicle or make more space in your vehicle for, you can put up here and secure it with a lock.How we have it configured on our Cross Trek now it's not gonna interfere with our antennae here in the back. As you can see, there's plenty of space in-between, and also, it's not gonna come into contact at all with our rear hatch, as there's plenty of space in between there as well.The box has a nice aesthetic look, especially with this particular vehicle. The black gloss plays perfectly off the color of the car. The box also has an aerodynamic shape to it. You can see that here, and that's gonna cut down wind noise and drag while you drive.To open it the key has to be inserted and in the unlock position, and once it's in the unlocked position, you can't remove it.

Then you push this sliding button in, like so. You see that color there, that means it's open or at least ready to be open. Inside we have 16 cubic feet of space to work with, as well as straps to tie down our cargo once we put it in.One thing I'd like to point out is how it actually attaches around our roof rack. It's very easy, but also very different from most cargo baskets. This actually used clamps that come down and tighten down inside the actual cargo basket with these knobs here, and they do make audible sounds once it's completely tighten down, like so, so you don't over tighten it.This box does open on either side so you can put it more towards the passenger or driver's side, whichever you prefer.And there you have it for the Thule Motion XT Rooftop Cargo Box on our 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek..
