- Higher fuel consumption, limiting range.

- Higher costs.

- <5% increase in fuel consumption.

- Smarter option, as it makes little to no impact on range.

*Under certain conditions IXTAbox can be positioned so that it improves the car’s performance.







- Overall driving performance deteriorates due to side and front wind impact leading to reduced manouverability

- In a crash situation, even at rather low speeds; i.e., 50 km/h most roof boxes have a high risk of their content breaking through and flying out of the roofbox.

- You can always drive at your regular speed when using an IXTAbox.

- IXTAbox sits closer to the ground and on the back of the car, reducing the risk of gear shooting to the front of the car during a crash.
