A sedan is arguably the best type of car on the market because it combines style, comfort, safety, and space better than most other segments do. If you pair that with the fact that many premium manufacturers such as Mercedes, Audi, BMW, and Lexus still prioritize sedans over SUVs, it’s easy to understand why.
A decent cargo area is a must for all modern-day cars, and once you own and live with a car that offers superior trunk space, it’s hard to settle with anything less than that. As such, we have rounded up a list of the most spacious sedans trunk-wise on the market right now.
The Volkswagen Arteon offers the largest trunk space out of all sedans on the market right now thanks to a clever design, the use of a hatchback tailgate, and a medium-sized rear bench. The Tesla Model S comes second right behind the Arteon, but the Tesla does offer more space if you also take into account the front trunk.
In third place sits the Audi A7 Sportback and the Kia Stinger is in fourth place. The BMW 7-Series has placed fifth with a slightly smaller trunk when compared to the Kia. Al things considered all five of these are ample spacious for most people out there.
Volkswagen Arteon – 27.2 cubic feet of trunk space
The VW Arteon is VW Passat’s more handsome and more expensive cousin, but it also offers more trunk space than the Passat. The reason why the Arteon is so welcoming is that it utilizes a hatchback trunk lid opening. A hatchback design enables the car to offer a wider and more encompassing opening which is beneficial for practicality.
Besides a large trunk space, the Arteon is also a lovely car to drive just like with all VW products. The recent redesign of the Arteon has brought the Arteon back at the very top of most futuristic-looking cars on the market right now. The only thing that lets it down slightly is the fact that it looks somewhat identical to Mk7.5 Golf on the inside.
Tesla Model S – 26 cubic feet of trunk space
The Tesla Model S is one of the very best electric sedans on the market right now because it takes advantage of Tesla’s advanced supercharger network and it also got a nice refresh a few months ago. Be that as it may, the Model S is also incredibly practical thanks to a large trunk space both in the front and in the back.
Compared to the Porsche Taycan with its measly 12.9 cubic feet of rear trunk space and 2.8 cubic feet of front trunk space, the Tesla Model S is a significant step above. As far as the front trunk or the “frunk” is concerned, the one on the Model S offers 5 cubic feet of space.
Audi A7 Sportback – 24.5 cubic feet of trunk space
The Audi A7 is one of the best-looking sedans on the market right now, and if you pair that with a cavernous 24.5 inches of trunk space, the A7 seems like a great purchase. Besides the handsome looks and a huge trunk, the A7 is also packed with the latest luxury and safety kit available.
The A7 manages to offer a large trunk also thanks to a hatchback design which virtually adds another door to the car. The trunk opening is wide and the load lip is fairly low which makes the A7 dwarf all the other cars in its class.
Kia Stinger – 23.3 cubic feet of trunk space
The Kia Stinger is fairly comparable to the aforementioned VW Arteon because it also utilizes a hatchback design which enables the Stinger to also benefit from a large trunk space. With 23.3 cubic feet of trunk space, the Stinger places fourth on this list.
Besides superior practicality, the Kia Stinger is a fairly nice-looking and docile driving sedan. However, if you opt for the performance-rated Kia Stinger GT sedan, the driving experience is not so docile, quite the contrary, it is even more exciting than some of its more expensive rivals.
BMW 7-Series – 18.2 cubic feet of trunk space
The BMW 7-Series is a full-size BMW luxury sedan flagship designed to take you on a far-away trip with the utmost levels of comfort and luxury. Even though the 18.2 inches of trunk space is nowhere near the space offered in the Arteon or the Tesla, it is still large enough for most people.
However, the BMW 7-Series does offer the largest amount of trunk space in its category while also being the most spacious full-size sedan when compared to the Audi A8 and the Mercedes S-Class. No matter if you are being chauffeured, or you like to drive the 7-Series yourself, you are comfortable either way.

Which mid-size SUVs have a lot of trunk space?
In the last decade or so, we are witnessing trends shifting towards SUVs because they offer a raised-up driving position, superior safety, and off-road capabilities. Trunk space-wise, mid-size SUVs are also superior when compared to sedans because the VW Atlas has 30 cubic feet of trunk space behind the second row of seats.
The Hyundai Palisade offers 26.2 cubic feet behind the second row of seats, and the Infiniti XQ60 offers 25.2. As far as 2-row SUVs are concerned, the Hyundai Santa Fe takes it with 25.3 cubic feet of space.

A compact car does not have to have lots of trunk space, but thanks to clever packaging a few compact cars offer more trunk space than full-size sedans like the BMW 7-Series do. The Toyota Corolla offers 19.1 cubic feet of trunk space while the Hyundai Elantra offers 19 cubic feet of trunk space.
Even the Honda Civic sedan trumps the 7-Series with 18.8 cubic feet of space, and so does the Nissan Sentra with the very same amount.
Which compact SUVs have a lot of trunk space?
