Thule Motion XT Rooftop Cargo Carrier

Thule is probably the first name that comes to your mind when looking for roof boxes, and the Motion, XT Rooftop Cargo Box, is their most iconic product yet. Praised for its sporty appearance, sturdy construction and excellent aerodynamics, it is no doubt the 77 x 36 x 17-inch Motion XT carrier is the perfect roof box for your Hyundai Kona. 

With plenty of 16 cubic feet space, you can haul tents, 6 pairs of skis, 5 snowboards and any other outdoor equipment you’ll need on the trip. The Motion XT’s low profile setting allows for more control while taking corners or driving at high speeds without damaging the car or the box. 

Lastly, the quick mount systems, lid stiffeners and dual opening make this carrier incredibly easy to use. The biggest downside to this 46lbs roof box is the price, but its superior quality and performance are worth every penny. 

Malone Auto Racks Cargo 16 Rooftop Box

This is neither the biggest nor the cheapest roof box on our list but if you want a versatile roof box well suited for both urban living and off-road vacations, look no further than the Malone Auto Racks Cargo 16 Rooftop Box. 

As the name suggests, you have 16 cubic feet of cargo space to fit no more than 165 pounds of shopping or camping gear. In the event you drive in bad weather or unexpected storms, you’re assured that no water will seep into the compartment as the lid shuts tightly for a waterproof seal.

The Cargo 16 roof box requires a 25″- 40″ crossbar spread for quick attachment to your Hyundai Kona. When mounting, provide 16″ between the rear crossbar and edge of the roof to enable the trunk to open effortlessly. The Malone Rooftop Cargo carrier weighs 50 pounds, so be careful not to overload it to the detriment of your Kona’s rooftop.

SportRack Horizon Alpine Cargo Box

If you have a big family, look to incorporate the SportRack Horizon Alpine Cargo Box for your next adventure. Like the other Thule on our list, this 76.88 x 32.88 x 17.13-inch roof box carries up to 16 cubic feet of cargo. 

Impact and UV resistant ABS plastic make for a rugged, heavy-duty construction ideal for unforgettable off-road experiences. A centralized lock offers ease in opening/closing the 43-pound roof box as well as ensuring the safety of all your luggage. 

You can’t talk about the SportRack Horizon Alpine Cargo Box without mentioning its passenger side opening. This gives you safe and convenient access to your belongings away from oncoming traffic. 

Additionally, the lid stiffeners don’t wear out or get distorted from frequent usage, as is the case with roof boxes with dual opening mechanisms. While you can save a good deal of money, the 110-pound load capacity is the lowest of any listed roof boxes but holds 6 pairs of skis or 4 snowboards.

Goplus Cargo Carrier

The Goplus Cargo Carrier is an excellent asset for outdoor enthusiasts who want to explore the world. It comes in a stylish titanium gray colour and is designed to offer you additional space at a subsidized price. 

The robust construction from high-quality plastic material ensures the box can handle any weight you throw at it. At 63 x 31 x 15 inches and weighing 25 pounds, the Goplus Cargo Carrier matches our top pick’s 165 load capacity, the Thule Motion XT, despite being lesser in size and storage volume.

Extensive rack compatibility and four quick connect anchors make the mounting of this box hassle-free. For maximum protection of your valuables, the Goplus features dual locking functionality and a super latch security system. 

As the Hyundai Kona rarely comes with roof bars, a roof rack with a width between 16-25 inches has to be installed first, and the width of the roof crossbars should be below 3.1 inches.

Conclusion

You should always consider the quality of construction materials when choosing the best roof box for your Hyundai Kona. You want something you can use for years to come with no flexing or bristling. As tempting it might be, always go for quality over the price to avoid disappointments after purchases.
