Why Roof-top Rack For Top-class Cars??
People feel that such additions improves the car’s road presence considerably and gives it a butch look. That’s true in several fronts, but what’s interesting about the roof rack? One can witness that almost all the trendy SUVs and MPVs – Scorpio, Innova, Bolero, Grande, XUV 5oo, Fortuner, etc. are fitted with the roof racks. I even saw a Toyota Land Cruiser with a roof rack in Chennai. I almost got vertigo!!

Such roof-top luggage racks, carriers and boxes may affect the aero-dynamics of the car and reduce the fuel efficiency. SUVs themselves, due to their massive size, height and weight, suffer from higher center of gravity phenomenon while braking or cornering affecting the car’s handling and stability. The roof racks and boxes would add worse to it. More than anything, it seriously affects the cars genuine looks and styling, making them look cheap and like cabs, aiming for hauling objects. The tailor-made roof railings in some cars which makes them look smart and sportier, is disturbed. I don’t think that all the owners who have fixed them on their cars use them frequently or occasionally either. It is better not to use them unless it it inevitable.
