The Thule Motion XT XXL is a very elegant and spacious cargo box that can be mounted on the roof of a car. The following article takes a closer look at it and lists the advantages and possible disadvantages.
Thanks to a pre-installed very simple PowerClick quick-fastening system, the Thule Motion XT XXL roof box can be quickly and easily mounted to a roof rack. An integrated torque indicator shows you with a practical click sound when it has been correctly attached. This means you can always be sure that the box is secure and will not slip. Very practical are also the handles on the outside and the lid lifters. These two practical features allow you to open and close the Thule Motion XT XXL quickly and easily at any time.
It is supported by Thule’s newly developed, state-of-the-art locking system called SlideLock. This system has a separate opening and closing function and automatically locks the roof box. A very convenient feature of the system is that it shows you when the Thule Motion XT XXL is securely and properly locked. The box is mounted so that you have easy access to your trunk at all times. This is a very important point, especially when traveling, and Thule has taken this into account when manufacturing the box.
The Thule Motion XT XXL roof box has an enormous volume of 610 litres. This means that it can hold much more luggage than most comparable models. It measures 232 x 95 x 47 centimeters and weighs 25.5 kilograms. The rather high weight results from the size of the box and at the same time speaks for stability. It is kept in a simple and timeless black.
advantages & disadvantages
Very practical is the possibility to open and load the box from both sides. It has an aerodynamic design and is therefore hardly noticeable while driving. This is a very important point on long journeys. Thanks to a newly developed PowerClick quick-fastening system, the roof box can be mounted on the roof rack very easily and in a few seconds. It is opened with practical lid lifters, which are also included in the delivery. You have unrestricted access to your boot at all times and can attach the Motion XT XXL to your roof in two different ways.
If you own one of the two carrier systems WingBar or SquareBar from the manufacturer, you do not even need an adapter for this. Since the box has the two security seals GS and TÜV, you can be sure that this is a reviewed and safe product.
The only disadvantage is the relatively high weight. However, this results from the enormous capacity. So this is not really a disadvantage.
Scope of delivery
In addition to the box, the scope of delivery also includes some practical lid lifters.
If you own the Thule Motion XT XXL roof box, you no longer need to worry about capacity problems. The enormous volume of 610 liters and the large payload of 75 kilograms allow you to transport even larger sports equipment, such as up to eight skis.
This allows you to store all the necessary utensils for a winter holiday with four people in it. The box itself can be quickly and easily attached to your roof rack. However, it also has a proud weight of 25.5 kilograms. Therefore the assembly should be carried out by a second person.
