Question:

Hello I have a Mazda CX-5 with no side rails. Can I install the Thule Force Sport or Force L without side rails? Thanks so much, this is all new to me

You'll need to install a roof rack first on your 2019 Mazda CX-5 that has no side rails but once you do so you'd easily be able put a Thule Force XT Rooftop Cargo Box # TH6358B or the Pulse L # TH615 that you mentioned.

For a roof rack I would highly recommend the Thule Wingbar Evo roof rack part numbers # TH711400, # TH710501, and # TH145079 as this is a very high quality roof rack for your CX-5 that is easy to install and has aero shaped crossbars to give you a very quiet ride quality.

Hello thank you so much for your quick and detailed response. My last question is if I chose # TH711200 47 inches instead oof # TH711400 53 inches would the rack still fit? I am trying to limit unnecessary rack length off the side of the vehicle.

The shorter bars might work but there's a really good chance they would be too short and not fit. Thule only recommends the longer ones so that is what we'd have to stick with. There isn't a way to attach the box to just side rails though so you do need to have a set of bars installed.
