Recommended Roof Rack for 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander With Fixed Mounting Points


I have a set of Thule 430 foot packs with the fit kit for a 2007 Hummer H3. I would like to install the rack onto a 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander with fixed points as there are no existing rails or cross bars. Will part #THTP42 work for this purpose?


Expert Reply:

The Thule 430 foot packs will work with the Thule Top Track Roof Mount System # THTP42 but it does require you to drill holes directly through the roof of your 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander. I highly recommend instead getting a new roof rack for your Outlander which will simply attach to the fixed mounting points on your roof so you do not have to drill holes into the vehicle.

The Thule AeroBlade Roof Rack will fit your '16 Outlander and is made up of Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars # TH711420 (Black) or # TH711400 (Silver), Thule Podium Foot Pack for Aero Bars # TH460R and Thule Fit Kit for Podium Style Foot Pack # THKIT3128.

This roof rack gives your Outlander a graceful look and specializes in allowing for a very quiet ride. It has rubber strips in the T-slots that not only provide cushioning for your gear but are angled for optimal air flow.

Additionally, the WingBars are constructed from anodized aluminum which ensures the rack is not only strong but also rust-resistant which will help maintain its sleek look. I do recommend using Thule's One-Key System lock cylinders # TH450400 to lock the rack to your side rails and help protect your investment.

I have added links to a couple video reviews for you to check out as well.
