Malone Roof Rack Crossbar Length Options for 2015 Subaru Forester with Raised Side Rails


Hi, Your webpage states that both the 50inch and the 58inch can be fitted to the 2015 Subaru Forester with factory installed raised roof rail. May I ask which one would be a better fit? What are the pros and cons for the 50inch vs. the 58inch one? Thanks,


Expert Reply:

Both the 50-inch # MPG201 and 58-inch # MPG202 versions of Malone's roof racks are confirmed fits on the 2015 Subaru Forester, but in fact their similar 65-inch square bar rack is also confirmed to fit, part # MPG203. These and all other roof racks for your Forester are displayed on the page I linked for you.

All three racks fit the same way and have the same 165-lbs maximum weight capacity so your selection can be based on preference and how large your rooftop cargo items are. I suggest placing a tape measure on your Forester roof to help you visualize where the ends of the bars will be one installed.

Generally it is best to choose a crossbar length such that you have no risk of bumping your head as you move about the car's exterior.
