Lincoln produces some of the best-looking sedans. The Lincoln MKZ, in particular, is a great mid-size sedan that looks fancy despite being relatively affordable. However, if you like going on road trips or beach drives, I am sure you are more interested in its trunk space.
The car has an impressive 15.4 cubic feet storage capacity. Nonetheless, you might still need more space to store extra cargo that can’t fit your vehicle, for example, skis and snowboards.
That’s where a roof box comes in. roof boxes can easily double your existing space without affecting your passengers’ comfort. That is why we have compiled a list of 4 boxes that we believe are ideal for the Lincoln MKZ.

YAKIMA - RocketBox Pro Compact Rooftop Cargo Box
While we have not arranged our recommended products from best to worst, we had to talk about the Yakima Rocket Box Pro first. This cargo carrier is perfect for sedans such as your Lincoln MKZ. This is because it is specially designed for smaller cars.
However, this box is not small by any measure. First, it has an impressive 12 cubic feet volume- big enough to haul gear of up to two campers. Also, it only weighs 45 pounds making it even more ideal for small cars.
This box also has a sleek aerodynamic design that will blend easily with your MKZ. Being aerodynamic means more fuel efficiency, and also, little to no noise is produced even when driving at high speeds. It is also not too long, so you will not have to worry about accessing your cars’ trunk.
Another cool thing about this box is the double-sided openings, which allow you to access your cargo from either side of your vehicle. Lastly, it is effortless to install, and it can fit on most roof bars.
Thule SideKick Rooftop Cargo Box
I think it’s literally impossible to review roof boxes and fail to mention a Thule product. The Thule SideKick is perfect for small cars. It only has a volume of 8 cubic feet, and its dimensions allow it to sit perfectly on your roof bars. Therefore, if you want extra space to carry small loads such as golf clubs and camping gear, this is the box for you.
The SideKick is one of the older products available in the market; thus, it lacks some features. For example, it does not have dual-sided openings, and you can only access your cargo from the passenger side. Also, mounting it is quite manual, and if you don’t have some essential tools and some DIY skills, you might not be able to mount it.
However, you can have it installed by your local mechanic. While it does not have those few modern features, not many products can compete when it comes to durability and quality. It is made from durable ABS plastic and has a heavy-duty design to protect your gear and help keep out the elements.
Goplus Cargo Box
If you are looking for a beautiful and high-quality roof box, the Goplus cargo box should be at the top of your list. This sleek cargo carrier comes in two colors. You can go for the glossy white finish, or you can choose the black one. The choice is up to you. Apart from being a beauty, this roof box has a tone of features.
First, it is made from high-quality ABS and PC material, making it ideal for heavy-duty purposes. It also helps it haul a load capacity of up to 165 pounds, which is quite impressive for a mid-sized roof box. Talking about size- the Goplus has a volume of 14 cubic feet.
Just like the Yakima, it also has dual-sided openings to make it more convenient for you to access your cargo. Finally, it is easy to install and can fit on most rack systems.
Thule Pulse Rooftop Cargo Box, Medium
Our last but definitely not least pick is the Thule Pulse. This box comes in three sizes (11, 14, 16 cu ft). However, both the alpine and the large are longer than the medium one. If you drive a sedan such as the Lincoln MKZ, you don’t want a roof box that is too long as it will make it impossible to access your car’s trunk.
That is why we have recommended the medium version. It is shorter and wider than the rest, which makes it ideal for sedans. Despite being shorter, it has an impressive capacity of 14 cu ft. In addition, it has a weight limit of 110 pounds. Also, it can fit 3-5 snowboards.
Similar to the SideKick, this box also has a passenger-side opening. It is also made from durable and rugged textured ABS material for long-lasting use. Security is crucial for Thule. That is why the box is fitted with a central locking system that ensures your gear can’t be tampered with.
Always go for a roof box that fits your budget and that you believe will meet your needs. All the products above fall under different price categories to help you make an informed decision regardless of the amount you are willing to spend. However, you can be sure that all of them are durable and will fit perfectly on your Lincoln MKZ.
