For a car to be practical it needs to have a large trunk, lots of head and leg space, and it also has to be easy to use and have lots of interior cubby spaces on hand. That being said, large trunk space is likely going to be one of the most important aspects for those who tend to carry a lot of stuff with them.
Even if you are not one of those people, but you do have a large family, even bringing the bare minimum of necessities for each member of your family requires you to have large trunk space. As such, we have rounded up cars with the largest trunk space currently available on the market.
The car with the biggest trunk space is the Volkswagen Arteon. Thanks to a hatchback trunk lid, the Arteon manages to squeeze a lot of stuff while also having a large opening. The Tesla Model S trails behind the Arteon as the car with the second-largest trunk space on the market.
The Audi A7 follows the Tesla Model S closely when it comes to trunk space and the Kia Stinger and the BMW 7-Series are both offering a cavernous trunk space, but none of these are nowhere near the Arteon or the Model S.
Volkswagen Arteon – 27.2 cubic feet of trunk space
The Volkswagen Arteon is VW’s answer to the Audi A5 Sportback and the BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe, but the Arteon focuses more on what VW does best, and that’s practicality and ease of use. For a spot of context, the Audi A5 offers a measly 11.6 cubic feet of trunk space which is nowhere near the Arteon.
The BMW offers around 17 cubic feet which is still way off the Arteon. If you put down the second row of seats in the Arteon, you are looking at 55 cubic feet of space which is enough even for sleeping purposes. Besides the practicality, the Arteon is a lovely car to drive, but it does cost similar money as some of its more premium competitors.
Tesla Model S – 26 cubic feet of trunk space
The Tesla Model S offers two trunk spaces which make it even more practical than the Arteon. However, if we only focus on the main trunk space at the back, the Model S offers 26 cubic feet of it, but when combined with the front trunk, the Model S totals at 31 cubic feet.
If you fold down the rear seats, you are looking at 58 cubic feet of space which is also a bit better than the Arteon. Besides great practicality, the Tesla Model S is one of the best EVs on the market right now which makes it a great option to consider for anyone wanting to make the transition.
Audi A7 Sportback – 24.5 cubic feet of trunk space
The A7 Sportback is to the A6 what the Arteon is to the Passat. This means that the A7 offers a more stylish take on a 4-door sedan which also comes with a hatchback tailgate in order to boost practicality. The A7 comes packed with all the latest technology and safety features, so it is safe to say that the A7 is a truly impressive automobile.
If you fold the seats down, you are looking at around 30 cubic feet of space which is as big as you can get on modern-day sedans. Either way, the A7 Sportback is a great car, but the price certainly does reflect that.
Kia Stinger – 23.3. cubic feet of trunk space
The Kia Stinger can also be viewed as a competitor to the VW Arteon, and it certainly seems that way when you compare their trunk spaces. The Stinger sits at 23.3 cubic feet and you can expand that space up to 41 cubic feet with the rear seats down.
It’s not on the level of the Arteon, but it is still better than most cars out there. The power trunk lid is available, and the Stinger is generally a really good car to drive, especially the GT version thanks to a fruity engine and a cleverly tuned chassis.
BMW 7-Series – 18.2 cubic feet of trunk space
The BMW 7-Series is a full-size luxury flagship that still does not offer nearly as much space as all the other cars on this list. Be that as it may, BMW has still managed to offer enough trunk space with the 7-Series in for it to be included in this list.
If you go for the plug-in hybrid version, the available trunk space falls to 14.8 cubic feet. However, the 7-Series is so big that you can pack a lot of stuff in it if you wanted to. It has to be said that BMW mostly focuses on the rear seats with the 7-series which means that the trunk space is usually sacrificed.
Which EV has the biggest front trunk?
The Ford F150 Lightning offers a cavernous 14.2 cubic feet of so-called “frunk” space which is class-leading at the moment. For a spot of context, a regular sedan offers 13-15 inches of trunk space on average which means that this F150 has more trunk space in the front than some cars have in the back.
If you pair that with 52.8 inches of trunk space in the bed, it means that the F150 Lightning is the most practical medium size truck in existence.
Which SUV has the largest trunk space?
The Honda Pilot takes the cake as the SUV trunk space champion with 48 cubic feet of available trunk space with the third row of seating out of use. The Ford Flex SEL offers 47.5 cubic feet of trunk space and the Mercedes Benz GLS350 offers 47 cubic feet.
It’s worth mentioning that all of these have an easy load lip because the trunk space is high of the ground, and they offer wide opening tailgates which makes them easy to carry stuff in and out.
Which minivan has the largest trunk space?
The Toyota Sienna XLE with either FWD or AWD comes out on top as the minivan trunk space champion with a huge 70.5 cubic feet of trunk space. The Chrysler Pacifica Touring L offers 66 cubic feet of trunk space and the Nissan Quest offers 62 cubic feet of trunk space.
That being said, if you want a car with the biggest trunk space available, go with a minivan, but if you need even more space, be sure to check out full-size passenger vans.
