Crossbars?

I just ordered a Limited (Moonlight/beige) and can't wait for it to arrive. One option I couldn't find on Hyundai's website is crossbars for the roof rails. Does anyone know if they are available? Would Kia bars fit? Any reason to prefer factory bars over aftermarket - or vice-versa? Main use will be car-topping a canoe.

Your best bet, IMO is aftermarket. That way, you are assured that the company will make components to fit all of their carriers. I has a rack many years back that I had to use flimsy "adapters" to make work.....not good/

Thule has rails out now (https://www.thule.com/en-us/us/roof-rack/roof-racks), and there are some cheap aftermarkets (would not advise).

Have not seen anything on Hyundai crossbars, and would not bet that a Kia would fit as the body is significantly different.

I installed the Thule ones and just used them this weekend. These were my first 3rd party bars I've ever used. The installation was pretty simple, and overall pretty happy with how quiet they are.

Are you still happy with the Thule bars? Did you go with the Evo or the Square?

Have you tried the MyHyundai.com site. https://www.hyundaiaccessories.com/accessories/2020/palisade/
All kinds of accessories, most not made by Hyundai, good place to start

Overall yes. I went with the Evo ones. My only gripe is that my Thule Ski Rack doesn't slide nicely on the evo bars, and I have just taken to leaving them up, and remove the roof rack instead.

Did you use them for a boat? What did you tie the bow/stern to?
