Recommended Roof Cargo Box For A 2019 Audi Q5


I have an Audi Q5 it has the rails that are installed on all Q5s. I also have the crossbars that come with vehicle. What boxes would fit. Also hopefully one that would also work with the Porsche Macan. Thanks

Whether the box is going to fit or not comes down to your crossbar spread. Crossbar spread is the measurement between the center of one crossbar to the other. If your crossbar spread is between 24 inches and 36 inches I HIGHLY recommend getting the Yakima CBX Solar Box # Y76FR. This thing is so cool! I was lucky enough to do the video on it and I really liked the look but of course having a solar panel on top is a very cool unique feature to this box specifically. You can charge your devices while your tailgating, camping or just traveling to your destination.

The Thule Pulse # TH615 you're looking at needs 23-58 inches to 34-3/8 inches of crossbar spread. Since you have factory crossbars the clamps will fit around it no problem. If you're wanting to go all out and get the most premium box, the Yakima CBX is the right choice. The Thule Pulse has the same capacity as the CBX but doesn't look as cool and can't charge anything.

I've included videos of these boxes and watching them may help you make your decision!
