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.

Chevrolet Impala V6-3.6L - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Lansdale, Pennsylvania
Shawn was prompt, professional, and delivered the promised service as expected. This was a used vehicle pre-purchase inspection. Shawn also had to drive to multiple locations to perform the inspection, as the address listed that I provided him with was not accurate, but he still made it to the correct location within his time window and completed the inspection.
Toyota Sequoia - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Akron, Pennsylvania
Shawn was very prompt in communicating with me and was good at helping me decide whether to purchase a used car. He help me avoid a car with a repaired rusted frame that could be a danger to my family's safety since we were planning on using the car to tow a travel trailer!

Luis was great. He showed up on time, acted professionally, and gave me confidence with a pre-purchase car inspection.
Acura RDX - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - South Hackensack, New Jersey
Luis did a thorough pre-purchase inspection for me, and found several major issues that made me pass on buying the car. Had I purchased the car, I almost certainly would have ended up paying thousands in repairs down the road. Thanks Luis!

Hyundai Elantra L4-2.0L - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Englewood, Colorado
He did a pre-purchase inspection for me. He was knowledgeable and fast, and knew what he was looking for. I really appreciate all the pictures and documentation he took of the state of the car before purchase. He noted potential issues with the car that I wouldn't have been able to notice. Would recommend.
GMC Savana 1500 - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Golden, Colorado
I trust Robert. He gave me a list and we will take care of it the week of June 29. I will know then that my vehicle is ready for the winter and is safe to drive. I look forward to getting things ready for another winter of careful driving.
