Roof Rack

A roof rack increases the luggage capacity of a car and is used for transporting bulky objects such as bicycles on the car roof.

Roof racks must have high strength, should be flexible to use (bicycle racks, roof box, ski racks) and should generate only low wind noise while driving. Data on their load capacity (roof load) can be seen in the car manual.

When loading the car roof, the driver must keep in mind that the car's driving characteristics may change considerably depending on the weight of the load on the roof.

Through its accessory range, SEAT offers a wide range of roof rack systems with different components.
