Somebody else is right -- this is a new fit since the last time I looked on Yakima's site. It's a good one, too.

The 5 door must have some attachment site where you can put Control Towers with Landing Pad 11 and 48" crossbars to build your base rack. This is actually a better fit than the one for the Sport models as it's rated at a higher weight-bearing capacity (165 pounds vs 125 pounds). Heck, now I wish I hadn't gotten a sport! You could carry nearly anything on this.

The four door will require Q Towers or drilling for a fit, though. Both of these are slightly more labor-intensive racks, and Q Towers should be removed when not in use. I'd go with a 5 door non-Sport...
