Cargo boxes, bags, and baskets are great for transporting gear on your vehicle's roof. A cargo box has the added benefits of an aerodynamic shape that reduces drag and wind noise, a hard shell to protect your gear, and a higher degree of weather resistance. And you can latch and lock a cargo box for added protection against theft.

Aerodynamic Cargo Box with Matte Grey Finish

Malone Cargo16 case

With 16 cu ft of space, the Malone Cargo16 has enough room for sports equipment, camping gear, or luggage for 3 to 4 people. The aerodynamic design helps reduce wind noise and drag. The locking lid opens from the passenger or driver side, and it's designed to provide clearance when you open your rear hatch. Quick-attach clamps accommodate most crossbar styles and spreads so you can install the box in minutes without tools. And the durable yet lightweight ABS plastic construction helps to prevent warping, denting, or cracking.

Sturdy, Dual-Side-Opening Lid

Dual Side open

The Cargo16 lid opens from both sides for easy access to your cargo. This means your gear is always close at hand whether you mount the box closer to the driver or passenger side. The extra-stiff lid helps reduce road noise and vibration, and it guards against dents and scratches.

Built-In Lock

lock key

The box includes a built-in lock on both sides to secure your gear. The locks also deter theft of the box itself because it denies access to the mounting hardware. The key can only be removed once it is in the locked position, ensuring the box is securely locked and safe for transportation. 3 locking points on both sides keep the lid secure when locked.

Universal Clamp-On Mounting Hardware

Cargo16 Mounting Clamps

The Cargo16 installs with inward-facing quick-attach mounting clamps. These clamps fit most crossbar styles, and they are inserted into the slots along the floor of the box to accommodate different crossbar spreads. To adjust a clamp, loosen the knobs and move the clamp to the desired location. Then tighten the knobs down to close the clamp around your crossbar.

Malone Cargo16 Rooftop Cargo Box - 16 Cubic ft - Gray - MPG902

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (15 Customer Reviews)

76-3/8 x 27-7/8 x 18-7/8. Roof box mounts to your crossbars with quick-attach clamps. Locking lid opens from either side of your vehicle. Great for carrying sports equipment and luggage for 3 - 4 people. Durable ABS plastic construction.


Pro: This box is a perfect option to add to the cargo capacity of my Toyota RAV4. Great for camping, fishing or skiing trips (but watch out that your XC skies don't exceed the length capacity of the box!).

Pro: The box fits onto Malone cross bars very securely: once screwed down it's solid. Install and removal is very easy.

Con: The front arm that holds the box lid open is attached with a rubber-covered pin at the front, and a metal retainer at the rear, see photos. Without the locking metal retainer, the front arm pops loose off the lid's pin. Initially I thought this was a mfg defect, but this is how it's built. etrailer contacted Malone and both provided great support. Malone sent me a new rubber grommet to insert on the pin at the front arm. But that didn't fix the problem at all.
In the end, I replaced the rubber grommet with a metal bolt that permanently attaches the front support arm with the box lid.
Would I buy this product again? Probably not.



After a year of ownership, with the front support arm rubber pin replaced with a metal bolt, this box has been great. The top stays open for loading really well now, and the original problem I described above has been solved. Hopefully Malone or the Italian company that builds these boxes has modified their design!?! The box contents stay dry, too. We drove through a storm that dumped 3.5 inches of rain and caused road flooding in places, but everything inside the box remained perfectly dry. A nice feature. Would I buy this product again? Yes!


We received our Malone Cargo Box and are very happy with it. It was installed on a 2016 Subaru Outback. For us, it holds two complete sets of golf clubs, golf shoes, balls, a bag of miscellaneous tie downs, and a small metal carrying case with wheels. We haven't used it on a long trip yet, but locally it's very stable. There is some strong wind noise when the sunroof is open. We also needed to use shims on the rear crossbar to prevent the pod from hitting the antenna. You can access this Box from either side which is nice. Overall we're happy with our purchase.


Very nice look. Not that much noise while driving unloaded. Have not tried loaded yet. Love the look. Easy access. Not heavy to install but would need two people. Really recommend!


Perfect! Lightweight but tough, great mechanics & robust locking system. Plus, etrailer was perfect with quick shipping & great customer service


Thanks for asking!

This cargo box
works for my needs now. But, one of the keys BROKE off in the lock chamber. I cannot get it out. Any thoughts on how to fix this issue?


While I haven't installed it yet, I wanted to leave a review about the service I got from! TomyLyn was terrific to talk with. She answered all my questions, didn't try to sell me the most expensive box, but got me the one that fit all my needs. I'll come back and update my review once I've installed the box. Thank you TomyLyn!


I have just received the product, and so far so good; light enough at 37.5 lbs; installation was a breeze; took it for a short spin on the highway, reached close to 80 mph, seems to hold up pretty well. But time will tell in the end.

Also, quick, prompt delivery. Would use this company again.


After using this roof box for the past year, I can say with experience that it is just what I was looking for. It's the right length for skis and snowboards and wide enough to fit several pairs. It also has enough height to fit additional gear on top of the skis and boards. I usually throw and couple duffles and my cooler on top. The duel hinge feature is quite nice when loading/unloading on the street. The product seems to be pretty durable and made of high quality materials. The box attaches to roof rack crossbars solidly. When it is loaded there is very little to no movement while driving at highway speeds.


Didn’t have the one I initially wanted in stock and need for upcoming trip so had to get slightly smaller one. Tammy P. Was super helpful with the orders. Haven’t used it yet but looks like this box is going to work fine. Love the free shipping.


Everything arrived as promised & was packaged well for the journey. No dings or scratches...will happily order again from etrailer, should the opportunity arise.




After a year of use, I am still very satisfied with this car topper. We have gone on multiple camping trips with it now, and it has worked great. I think I have yet to see another Malone car topper out on the road, which is too bad, because I think the quality ranks up there with Yakima and Thule and the price is better.


Well constructed, easy to install, stayed dry inside during a heavy rain. Arrived promptly in good condition.


Very nice product

  • Will the Malone Cargo16 Rooftop Cargo Box Fit on a 2019 Infiniti QX60 with Rear Antenna
    We haven't tested the Malone # MPG902 specifically on a 2019 Infiniti QX60, but I can tell you how to measure to determine whether you'll get any interference with the antenna or the rear hatch. For the rear hatch, you'll need at least 16" between the rear crossbar and the line where the roof meets the rear hatch for the box not to interfere with opening it completely. When it comes to the SiriusXM antenna, typically a roof box will not interfere with reception with empty and as long...

  • Can I Clamp The Malone Cargo 16 On The Factory Rack Of My 2018 Honda CR-V
    While I have never had a rooftop cargo box slide on factory crossbars after installation, I do have a suggestion that my provide you with piece of mind. When you install your Malone Cargo16 Rooftop Cargo Box - 16 Cubic ft - Gray, part # MPG902, on your factory crossbars, I suggest that you cut up a bicycle inner tube into small pieces and use the clamps from the cargo box to clamp the rubber around the crossbar. Do not forget to use the enclosed tool to tighten the clamps on your crossbars....

  • Will the Malone Profile18S Rooftop Cargo Box Clear the Hatch On a 2015 Subaru Forester
    The Malone Profile18S Rooftop Cargo Box part # MPG910 will fit a 2015 Subaru Forester no matter what crossbars you are using. That said, if you want to be sure that you can open your rear hatch fully with the cargo box attached you will need to do some measuring. If you have a bare roof with fixed mounting point then I can confirm the Malone Profile18S will clear the rear hatch but if you have raised side rails then you will need to move the front crossbar all the way up and then move the...

WIth that being said it looks like you measured correctly as the research I was able to gather indicates that you have a 30" crossbar spacing on your 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon. Therefore, the Malone Cargo12 Rooftop Cargo Box part # MPG901 will not work for you. Instead, I recommend using the Malone Cargo16 Rooftop Cargo Box part # MPG902 which will work...

  • Can a Malone Cargo16 Rooftop Cargo Box and Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier Be Used Together
    I tried to find the width of the factory roof rack on your 2020 Toyota Highlander but was unable to do so. You will need to measure your crossbar width to verify fitment. The Malone Cargo16 Rooftop Cargo Box # MPG902 is 27-7/8" wide and the Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # MPG114MD is 6" wide (your kayak would make this a little wider). These equal approximately 34" in total width between the 2 carriers. As long as your crossbars measure wide enough to allow these carrier...

  • 2014 Mazda 5 Cost-Effective Roof Cargo Box for Rhino-Rack Roof Rack
    The SportRack Vista XL Cargo Box # SR7018 fits crossbar spreads of 23-5/8", 25-7/8", 27-7/8", and 29-7/8". Since the crossbars on your 2014 Mazda 5 are 32" apart we need to look at a different solution. For your application I recommend checking out the Malone Cargo16 Rooftop Cargo Box # MPG902 because it fits a crossbar spread range of 25" to 40" and it isn't so set since the clamps adjust along a track system. This is a little higher in regards to price-point but there isn't anything...

  • What Gray Glossy Cargo Box do You Recommend?
    Great question! I went ahead and called my tech at Malone, and he confirmed that the Malone Cargo16 Box # MPG902 is a matte gray color. It is not a gloss gray. Even though that is the case, we do carry some gloss gray options. For those, I recommend the Thule Motion XT Rooftop Cargo Box - 16 cu ft - Titan Glossy # TH629707 or the Malone Cargo12 Rooftop Cargo Box - 12 cu ft - High Gloss Gray # MPG901. It is important to note that the Thule Motion XT requires 23-5/8" - 36-7/8" of crossbar...

  • How to Tell if Rooftop Cargo Box Will Clear Rear Hatch on 2019 Honda CR-V
    The SportRack Vista XL Cargo Box # SR7018 is small enough that you should be just fine with hatch clearance on your 2019 Honda CR-V (see attached review video of this box on a Honda Fit). But with that being said, it looks like the OEM roof rack (and any aftermarket rack for that matter) has a crossbar spread of 27" while the Vista XL fits crossbars spreads of 23-5/8", 25-7/8", 27-7/8", and 29-7/8" so you would have to drill new holes in your cargo box to make it fit with your vehicle.

  • Can the Inno Wedge 660 Rooftop Cargo Box Carry 192cm Skis
    While your idea may be possible, I cannot recommend doing so. The Inno Wedge 660 Rooftop Cargo Box # INBRM660BK technically only has a max ski length of 182cm. The 190cm is a measurement taken elsewhere and not what Inno list the max length at. While having the skis slope from the top of the box to the bottom should provide a little more length, I cannot confirm that this will work for your skis. We do currently have one cargo box that can accommodate your 192cm skis. That is the Malone...

That said, you mentioned not affecting your MDX, and by that I assume you mean being able to open your rear hatch without interference. What you will need to do is take a measurement from the rear crossbar to the line where the roof and your Acura's hatch meets to see what that distance is.
