Roof Rack With Wide Crossbars for 2019 Mazda CX-5 With Naked Roof


I was planning to install the Rhino Roof Vortex product on my CX-5, but I would like to have a wider bar than the standard 46 inch and hoped to install the 49 inch bar instead. My goal is to mount a RTT with enough space to also mount an awning. Can you confirm if the 49 inch bar would still mount properly?

We do have a great solution for a roof rack with wide crossbars on your 2019 Mazda CX-5 with a naked roof, but due to the way the Rhino-Rack bars mount, we cannot confirm you can use bars wider than the recommended 46 inches. Instead, the best option is to use a roof rack from Yakima, which uses 50 inch crossbars and fits your '19 CX-5. The rack is made up of the following parts:

- Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00425 (Black)
- BaseLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars # Y28TR
- BaseClip Fit Kit # Y06130
- BaseClip Fit Kit # Y06154
- Same Key System Lock Cores (Optional) # Y07204

I have added a link to a video review of this rack on a similar year Mazda CX-5 as well as a link to an install for you to check out. Keep in mind the vast majority of roof top tents require your vehicle to have raised side rails for a roof rack to mount to, so you need to verify this with the tent that you have.
