Will My Roof Racks Fit Be Affected By My Raised Rails Narrowing At The Rear Of My Volkswagen Tiguan  


Hello, I need to buy crossbar for VW Tiguan 2020. The car came with factory side rails. I notice that the distance width between the back part of the side rails is narrower than in the front. It is kind of taper shape. Does it mean I need to find cross bars set that has two different bars?. Do the ones on your website for my car model fit this issue? Thanks,


Expert Reply:

The crossbars of the roof rack on your 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan will be the same length. You are right, there will be a slight narrowing of your roof rails as they go toward the rear of your vehicle. All that means is that the amount of crossbar that hangs beyond your tower/foot might be different from front to rear. That does not affect the operation of your roof rack. The Curt Roof Rack for Raised Side Rails - Aluminum - Black - 53-3/8" Long, part # C18118, you attached to your question will fit your vehicle without any issues.

I have included a video link of this rack getting installed on a 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan below.
