The new Thule Excellence XT is truly the essence of usability and quality. Market leading design and features such as automatic load fixation, interior lighting and quick mount system makes this roof box the ultimate when ease of use and safety is imperative.

For many car owners the question of where to put luggage when on vacation is not merely a matter of increasing storage space. Easy securing of valuable sports equipment and personal belongings is often a deciding factor. And with Thule Excellence XT you only have to close the lid and the content is automatically fixed.

 “Our new Thule Excellence XT is top of the line in every sense. We’ve taken an already great product and listened to our consumers, improving and adding new user-friendly features. I’m sure that most won’t be able to live without the quick mount system, accessibility from box sides, automatic load fixation and Thule Box light once they have tried them”, says Michael Mitschke, International Product Manager Cargo.

In addition to securing the load, consumers often mention quick mounting and general handling, such as having access to the content by opening from either side of the box, as important features. And as far from all travels start or end in broad daylight, bad lighting conditions can be very frustrating when trying to load and unload a roof box full of luggage and sports equipment. That’s why Thule Excellence XT comes with Thule Box Light, a specially designed lighting system that is easily attached to the roof box and automatically turns on when you open Thule Excellence XT.

Thule Excellence XT is also exclusively designed in a unique sporty two-tone colour combination. Making this roof box a stylish and perfect fit for all modern cars.
