The Best Used Cars to Buy If You Need a Lot of Trunk Space

Many people focus more on interior room than cargo carrying capacity. That’s natural if you have a large family or regularly carpool, but what about drivers who need to carry a lot of stuff most of the time and who may or may not be concerned with the amount of interior space as long as they have a roomy trunk? If that sounds like you, here are some of the best used cars to buy if you need a lot of trunk space.

  • 2015 Volkswagen Golf: While you might not have the highest opinion of VW right now, what with the fuel mileage scandal fresh in everyone’s minds, there’s no denying that the 2015 VW Golf offers plenty of cargo space. In fact, it offers 52.7 cubic feet of it. It’s also a four-door hatch, so there’s ample interior room, and getting into the rear cargo area is a snap.

  • 2015 Honda Fit: The Fit has been around for several years at this point, and it’s always had a reputation for offering outstanding interior room. However, if you opt for a used 2015 Honda Fit hatchback, you’ll get 52.7 cubic feet of cargo space (with the back seats folded down, of course). The Fit also has a flat-folding front passenger seat that can offer additional room if necessary.

  • 2015 Ford Flex: The Flex is one of those vehicles that doesn’t really fit into any specific category. Is it an SUV? Is it a minivan? Maybe it’s a wagon. Whatever the case may be, it offers 83.2 cubic feet of cargo space with the third row seats down. That means you can still have two rows of seating for the family with all the space you want in the back without having to drive something that actually looks like a minivan.

  • 2014 Chevrolet Malibu: Looking for a passenger car with good trunk space? There’s good news – you have options. One of those is the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu, which offers 16.3 cubic feet of trunk space, making it one of the best in its class (midsize sedans).

  • 2014 Ford Fusion: The Ford Fusion might not look like it offers much in the way of trunk space, but looks can be misleading. The streamlined body hides it well, but there’s actually 16 cubic feet of trunk space there, along with excellent handling characteristics. If you opt for the turbocharged engine, you also get a healthy dose of power.

Whether you’re more interested in an SUV, a sedan, a hatchback or something else, there are lots of choices.

Ford Transit Connect - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Pomona, California
Very prompt, knowledgeable, honest and super thorough. I had a pre-purchase vehicle inspection at a car lot. Michael's detailed attention helped me bargain the price down significantly, more than enough to cover the cost of his services. I'm super satisfied!!!!
Jeep Wrangler - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Norco, California
I hired Michael through YourMechanic to perform a pre-purchase inspection on a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon before I pulled the trigger and purchased it from a used car dealership. I am SO glad that I did--Michael was able to not only immediately identify that the Wrangler was NOT a Rubicon as advertised (he identified Dana 30 lockers instead of standard Dana 44s) but also that it had a host of other electrical and mechanical issues. He was prompt, professional, and saved me from what was bound to be a nightmare. Glad to be out $100 rather than the cost of a Jeep that was misadvertised, and grateful to have a Jeep expert have my back.

Honda Element - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Webster, Texas
John completed a pre-purchase car inspection for me. I was feeling a bit nervous about purchasing a car from out of state, but after seeing John's inspection notes and then talking with him over the phone about the few issues he found, I feel confident in his knowledge, honesty, and professionalism, and I feel very comfortable about my upcoming purchase.
GMC Yukon - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Webster, Texas
John performed a pre-purchase inspection for me and was great to work with. He is punctual, communicates really well and overall made the experience very easy for me. If I lived local he would be my regular mechanic.
