For some, boot capacity doesn't just matter during the holiday season. Whether it's the family suitcases, the weekly shop, or flatpack furniture, not everyone likes playing Tetris when loading into the boot of their car. That's where cars with good boot space come in.

For many, a spacious boot is a top priority when it comes to choosing their next car - but which models are best-suited to their needs?

We run through some top picks from the world of big-booted cars to suit different loading needs and price points. They're listed below, in no particular order. You're welcome.



  • Boot space in five-seat mode: 750 litres

  • Boot space in seven-seat mode: 326 litres

  • Boot space with all rear seats folded down: 2,120 litres

The largest of BMW's range of SUVs has the biggest usable boot capacity of any car on the market (unless you opt for a van-based people carrier). There are plenty of these used BMW SUV options on offer as well - coming in cheaper than purchasing brand-new.

The official boot capacity is 750 litres, and while some other models actually beat that, the X7's boxy shape means you can use more of the space. Twelve carry-on suitcases fit in its boot, and there's still space for five passengers!

Skoda Superb Estate

Škoda Superb Estate

  • Boot space with all seats in place: 660 litres

  • Boot space with rear seats folded down: 1,950 litres

Estate cars are usually a good bet if you’re looking for a vehicle with a sizeable boot. After all, lugging big loads are what estates are all about, aren’t they?

Skoda usually has a headstart over most other manufacturers, because of the way the company ‘packages’ a car – how it makes the most out of the space inside the vehicle – and the Superb’s 660-litre boot is a cavernous space for swallowing up whatever you need to carry.

Volkswagen Touareg

Volkswagen Touareg

  • Boot space with all seats in place: 810 litres

  • Boot space with rear seats folded down: 1,800 litres

Large SUVs are a good bet if you're looking for a bootylicious car, so Volkswagen's beast of an off-roader won’t disappoint.

An official capacity of 810 litres is impressive, but tests also show that it’s possible to squeeze in 10 carry-ons in the Touareg, if you need to. 

Like the X7 above, that still leaves lots of space for five passengers ahead. Plus, you can bag an impressive deal by choosing a used Volkswagen option.

Ford Puma – 456 litres

  • Boot space with all seats in place: 456 litres

Despite having a smaller footprint than the Ford Focus hatchback thanks to its extra height, not to mention its hidden storage box in the boot, the Puma crossover has surprising amounts of load space.

Open the tailgate on this used Ford and you'll see 456 litres of usable space in the boot, with a flat floor to make loading easier.

But lift the floor and there are 80 litres in a rubber-lined box, which even comes with a plug so you can hose it out. Perfect for the wellies!

Range Rover

  • Boot space with all seats in place: up to 909 litres depending on the model

  • Boot space with rear seats folded down: up to 2,030 litres

If you're looking for maximum space in an uber-posh package, look no further than the Range Rover.

A car worthy of the Queen herself, this luxury SUV has space for 800 litres of theoretical luggage – which essentially means the family suitcases, boxes of continental wine and bags of Wine Gums should fit in, no problem.

Best of all, you'll earn hero status using a high-end car so effectively.

Honda Civic

  • Boot space with all seats in place: up to 478 litres depending on the model

  • Boot space with rear seats folded down: up to 1,267 litres

While technically a hatchback, the extended rear-end of Honda's Civic means it offers much more boot space than conventional alternatives.

In fact, there are around 100 litres in there more than most of the Civic's rivals, with 478 litres of space meaning you should get around five carry on cases in the back.

If the roofline wasn't so angled at the back, there'd be even more room!

Cars with flat loading boot space

If you specifically need a car with good boot space that also happens to be flat-loading, there are some specific models to consider.

The Volvo V60 offers some models that have a completely flat rear loading area with the seats folded. Look out for options like the Inscription and anything above to get that feature.

The Skoda Octavia also has a flat loading area of up to 1,555 litres that's ideal for fitting all the extras.

Another option to consider is the Renault Clio. This model offers up to 1,069 litres of rear loading space and a completely flat floor.

If you want an SUV with a flat-loading boot, the Hyundai Santa Fe is a great pick. This one offers up to 1,625 litres of space.
