This will narrow down the number of racks you have to choose from. Depending on the number of bikes you select your mounting options will change.

Play around with your options so you get a good idea of which styles can carry different quantities of bikes.

While I cant tell you exactly what your rack needs are I can point you to someone who can: Thule. Whether youre going to end up purchasing a Thule rack or not you will find the Thule website (Thule.com) is a great source for figuring out what style you need. This website was very useful in helping me choose a new roof bike rack and I highly recommend doing some research on this site before making a purchase. On the Thule site you can select what kind of rack youre looking for (bike rack ski rack base rack etc.). First youll want to select bicycle rack and then select the load capacity youre looking for(1 2 3 4 or 5 bikes).
If a car can fit roof racks then your car will be able to carry a bike. Personally I dont like this option because of the wind resistance and the amount of gas my car chews when going on a long trip. I also find the bikes are more exposed to rain insects dirt and dust and are more protected behind the car. But if you are concerned that the other types of bike racks will not fit your car or indeed cannot then the roof top is still an option. 2.
