Bike rack for Yaris?

Hi,

Does anyone have any suggestion about how I could transport my MTB with my new Yaris? The manual recommends that I don't install a hitch. Which isn't preferable anyway, I like the unaltered looks ;-)
I was wondering if there is a roof rack out there that could fit the Yaris Liftback...

Thanks, Florin

Get the type of rack that does not live on your car all the time....otherwise your MPG could suffer greatly!

Neither Yakima or Thule make a roof rack, Yet. Here is your only option for now.

Sweet find. Remember it will only fit the 4 door batch back. 2 door HB people are SOL for now unless your good with a drill.

If you like the unaltered looks....why a roof rack? Hidden hitch has a hitch thats totally invisable until you want to use it. Ya, I know trailers aren't for everybody!!!!!! I just hate racks!!!!
