Default 2017 Impreza fixed crossbars?

Does anyone know if or approximately when fixed crossbars might be available for the 2017 impeza hatchback stock model? Also if anyone would fathom a guess if aftermarkets might be available for less in the future? The earlier models cost like $300-$400 for a pair (ones you bolt on because you don't have rails and you don't want the aftermarket that go agaist the door gasket).

I'm also wondering if the roof rails will be available as an accessory from Subaru. It looks like there are some American models with the roof rails, none of the Canadian models I've seen had roof rails on a 5-door .

I think you have to go with a higher model to get rails (the parts that go along the top of the car above the doors.) I just want the ones that go from driver door to passenger and the one that go from rear passenger to rear passenger door.

In US, The Premium and Limited hatch comes with roof rails by default but the base and sport doesn't. Sedan don't have roof rails at all

I plugged in my 2017 Impreza stock 5 door into Yakima and found the Skyline towers are out of stock but the rest is in stock. The towers are available Prime from Amazon.

Towers #8000148 $199
Landing pad 11 #8000233 $48, you need 2 of these
Jetsream silver small #8000428 $199
Total is $542

Subaru now has the 2017 fixed crossbars available for the 5 door for $199. Apparently made by Thule now?

Seems to fit but the screw is a pain to get in. Other than the screw, super easy. They hold 150 lbs. For install see https://techinfo.subaru.com/proxy/14...e361sfl200.pdf

Can't seem to embed google drive image so here it is:

Thanks for the info! $199 for both of them? I wonder if the Thule fairings/etc are a direct fit.

Actually mine were $180 as I negotiated a 10% off deal. I insisted my next car would have racks so I twisted their arm when I bought the car. Yes, both for $199. They seem solid enough, I tried to bend them and there wasn't a lot of flex. That is a good question about Thule items being a dirct fit. Looking for a kayak thingy right now.

Cool, good to know. If you can, let us know what you find for accessories. I'd be going for kayak/mountain bike bits.

That, or I may get a hitch for it instead (tow 150lb boat and/or bike rack). I had a Curt hitch before but have no idea what exists for this model.

Yup. I checked their site one more time before ordering the OEM Scoobyroo ones. Whatever. I'm pretty sure I'd end up paying more than $162 from Thule based on the prices of their load bars and foot packs/etc.

Fyi, 2012-2016 also came with Thule crossbars. And Thule bike fork mount carrier fits. Thule 513 dominique is the model name.

What does it look like? Post a link and it may help.

I picked up my Subaru-branded Thule crossbars from the dealership today and haven't installed them on my '17 yet but they generally appear to be the same as the general Thule Aero bars (rather than the old square blocky ones I used to have). Will install them this weekend if I have time.

The crossbars I am referring to are the same ones you bought. The J type kayak rack are like these https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/spo/6071276800.html

Oh, when we installed the crossbars we just couldn't get the screws stared in the thread. One screw was a little, well, screwy. So the problem screw was swapped around till it fit in one of the threads then all the others were fine.

I ended up getting the yakima even keel pads for $99. These go on and off super quick and easy from the side of the OEM crossbars (so you don't have to mess with a screw underneath) and holds the kayak pretty well (12 foot on the hatchback).

I went with the Yakima Timberline mounts with CoreBars.

I already had a set of Yakima brand Mako saddles and Hully Rollers, so with their adapter clips, they just clamp directly to the bar.

Using the REI annual 20% coupon (which it actually applied to the most expensive thing, the towers), total bill including adapter clips was almost exactly $350.

They are actually pretty quiet. The additional wind noise brings the in-cabin sound level on the highway up to about what my last car already had. Haven't seen a ton of impact on MPG yet either, but I'm also only on my third tank of gas.
