Roof Rack Options and Recommendations for 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe with Naked Roof


I see the Yakima roof system using clips, but Im not fond of them. Is there side rails available I can install on my Santa fe so I dont have to use clips? Thanks

We have roof rack fits for your 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe if it had factory flush rails that run front to back like the Thule Wingbar Evo rack part numbers # TH711200, # TH460R, and # THKIT4093 for a through bar rack but in order to go this route you'd have to check with Hyundai to see if they can install factory flush rails on your vehicle. Or if you prefer an OEM look we have the flush bar Thule rack # TH7602-TH7603 and # THKIT4093. I attached an install video for this rack on a 2019 Santa Fe for you to check out as well.

Otherwise the best solution is the style that attaches to the door frames like the Yakima JetStream rack part numbers # Y00425, # Y00146, # Y06151, and # Y06154. These types of roof racks are more secure and sturdy than they might appear. They also don't allow water in when it rains or have any other adverse effects on the vehicle. As long as you can look past the clips in the door frame there really is no downside to this style of rack.

Or another option that's a bit outside of the box is the SeaSucker part # 298-SX6000B which uses vacuum cups to secure to the roof of the vehicle. These are also much more secure and strong than they appear at first glance as well.
