Please choose your vehicle to see what Roof Bar options you have

Thule makes excellent roof bars and has fittings for almost all car makes and models. Our database shows all the Thule roof racks available for your vehicle.

Most vehicles have several Thule roof bar options. As well as the standard black plastic-coated galvanized steel SquareBars there are also super quiet aluminium WingBars, SlideBars (ideal for use on tall or wide vehicles) and the rugged Professional bars.

We also show you where you can use longer bars than specified - this may useful if you have lots to carry, or if you already have the longer bars from a previous Thule roof bar system.

Pick the load carrier that fits your car

If we show a choice of different car roof fixings, for example "for cars with raised roof rails" and "for cars with fix points" it is essential that you look at your car roof and choose the correct fixing system. These are the most common types of fixing system:


The fixing points are usually hidden underneath flaps or sliding panels

Raised roof rails

These rails run from front to back, and you can push your hand under them

Flush roof rails

These rails run from front to back and touch the car roof along their whole length

Clamp around fittings

If your car doesn't have any other obvious fitting system, the bars clamp around the bodywork

Which roof bar type would be best for your needs?

Thule SquareBar

Actually a rectangular steel bar, 32 x 22mm. This is the cheapest option. The more expensive options look better but also offer load carrying benefits.

Thule WingBar

Aluminium bars include T-track slots which allow you to use the full length of the bars for load carrying. The WingBar not only looks good but more importantly includes a device which reduces wind noise to the minimum, as well as reducing drag. Many customers leave their Thule WingBars in place from week to week, especially if they are taller vehicles and fitting is awkward.

Thule WingBar Edge

These WingBars have carefully designed low profile fixings on their ends, allowing them to integrate really well with the car roof, although you lose some load carrying space because "the bars don't stick out beyond the feet".

Thule SlideBar

These are ideal if you are carrying kayaks or bikes and know that lifting these into the centre of the roof will put a strain on your back. They're almost essential for safe loading on tall and / or wide vehicles. The bars slide out so you can load, for example, two bikes on the left side of your vehicle, then slide them the other way and load two more on the right. They're brilliant.

Thule Professional Bar

This bar has a unique tri-slot design which allows for multiple accessories to be fitted, especially load stops, but many customers choose them just for their rugged good looks.


One Key System

Look out for our 'One Key System' lock matching offer. When you put Thule products in the Shopping Basket we automatically calculate how many identical replacement lock barrels you'll need so you can lock all your Thule gear with the same key. We'll charge you a nominal price for each of these replacement lock barrels, refunding you the same price for each lock barrel posted back to us.

Experience the Whispbar in action

Prorack engineers built a mini wind tunnel for the Frankfurt Automechanika trade fair in September 2008, capable of generating wind speeds up to 160 km/h. A range of standard European roof bar profiles were compared to the Prorack Whispbar, and the results were graphed. They’re compelling.
