First impression: Great looking box with lots of room and nice upgrades
January 26, 2017
I just saw this box at an outdoor show, and was immediately impressed with the aesthetics. This box looks great, nice and aero but also roomy, and will certainly compliment the look of any vehicle. The opening function being separated from the locking mechanism is a nice upgrade. No more broken keys! And as always, Thule's mounting hardware is intuitive and easy to use and now features an integrated torque setting so you know when the box is perfectly secure on the bars, no more guessing.
Pros:A roomy box that doesn't look clunky, new features optimizing ease of use, and forward mounting to avoid hatch interference
Cons:A bit less aerodynamic than the Sonic series it replaces, so will affect gas mileage a bit more, but worth it for the extra cargo space!
