Expert Reply:

For your 2022 Kia Sorento with flush side rails, the best roof rack you can get is one from Thule, for a number of reasons. The crossbars it uses, called WingBars, are really quiet so you don't have to put up with the annoying whistling noise that comes from lesser bars, and they are also really easy to use, not to mention highly durable. The complete rack that fits your '22 Sorento with flush side rails is made up of the following parts:

- Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars - Silver # TH711300 or Black # TH711320

- Evo Flush Rail Feet for Thule Crossbars # TH710601

- Fit Kit for Thule Evo Flush Roof Rack Feet # TH28JQ

The WingBar Evo crossbars are so quiet for a couple of reasons, starting with their aerodynamic shape, but also because they have what are called WindDiffusers on top, which are rubber strips with small ridges. What they do is help direct air flow over the crossbar, which in turn greatly minimize wind noise that you would hear with other crossbars.

The rack is the easiest to use because not only because the 3-1/8" wide x 1" tall crossbars allow for nearly any accessory to clamp around them, but also for their unique T-slots. The T-slots on the WingBars have rubber strips on top that you just need to push in to mount an accessory in them; this is different than other crossbars where you have to cut off the top rubber strip at the exact spot you want mount an accessory in the slot.

And as for durability, the WingBars are constructed from aluminum which means they'll never rust, and the crossbars (as well as the rest of the components) come with a lifetime warranty to ensure you never have to worry about the parts wearing out over time - they won't. The only other thing I recommend is adding locks to the feet to secure the rack to your Sorento, which you can do with the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders # TH450400.
