rails on Niro are most common type of rails on newer vehicles. it's universal style you will find on almost all new vehicles in the past few years. close type has been common because of noise reduction. with that note i have the OEM crossbar but it's made by Thule and all the Thule accessories should fit considering KIA accessories are also made by Thule like the bike rack, cargo box and carrier, and etc. I have Yakima cargo box and it's a standard "clamp" on type which is modern style clamps which is easy to secure and place. I don't have any issue clamping on to the cross bar which is thicker than the ones i have for my Lexus which is also OEM and slide-insert type which is unique to Toyo/Lexus.Has anyone actually gotten THule or Yakima racks to fit a Kia Niro? After 2 months of trying the rack dealer is still unable to find a foot to fit this wierd sized kia roof rail.
