Face it, an overstuffed cabin makes even the swiftest road trip feel as slow as molasses. Even if we had supersonic cars to whiz us coast-to-coast in hours instead of days, we’d still need to stow our super-sized load of stuff. Well, with the Thule Sonic Cargo Box riding up top, your gear stays out of the way and you look like you’re traveling at the speed of sound—even if you’re cruising the speed limit.
Featuring an Aeronose and an angle-cut back, your Thule Sonic Rooftop Cargo Box slips right through the wind—silent and sleek. What’s more, the AcuTight Mounting system installs to most factory or aftermarket racks and makes a distinct “click” once secured. And, thanks to the dual side opening box design, packing and unpacking is a breeze from either side of your ride. Plus, the oversize SecureLock keeps your valuables safe and is easy to use even with gloves.
If you need a lot of room or just a little extra space, the Thule Sonic Roof Cargo Box has you covered. Available in 4 sizes ranging from petite to the gargantuan, there’s one for every road trip. And, it’s available in your choice of black of silver to accent your topside style. Best yet, Thule builds it from advanced ABS, coats it with a high-gloss automotive finish and backs it with a Lifetime Warranty.

Found the box to be very usable during our first trip. Very secure. Never knew it was on top of our jeep cherokee. Great feature that it opens and locks from both sides. Very happy with purchase.

The Sonic L is an excellent investment for me. With two large dogs and a family, my Subaru Outback can get a little crowded on extended weekend camping trips. The Sonic L is VERY roomy, lightweight, aerodynamic, fits perfectly on my Subaru factory installed roof racks, AND looks AWESOME on my car. I'm very happy with my purchase.

I was very pleased with the overall performance of the Thule Sonic Cargo Box. I especially liked the ease of installation, the quietness while at highway speeds, and the overall functionality. I had borrowed my brothers cargo box which was a different brand. This one was much easier to install, and the attachment mechanism proved superior.
