The 19 cars with the biggest boots - our unique test reveals the real answer
What Car?'s unique way of measuring boot space reveals the cars that really have the biggest cargo areas...
5= Peugeot 5008 - 10 suitcases
The Peugeot 5008 offers the most space per pound of any SUV on our list – and it even has seven seats. The boot is very well designed; it’s square, with a low lip, and there are no intrusions from wheel arches or anything else to eat into the space. As a result it will take 10 suitcases with no trouble.
5= Porsche Cayenne - 10 suitcases
Performance meets practically with the Porsche Cayenne, as it’s as quick as it is spacious. Even the entry-level model will accelerate from 0-60mph in less than six seconds, and you can fit 10 suitcases in the boot. It’s strictly a five-seater, though, so look elsewhere if a seven-seat SUV is a priority.
5= Range Rover Velar - 10 suitcases
The Range Rover Velar occupies the middle ground between the entry-level Evoque and the performance-themed Sport model, and it’s also the most spacious of the line-up, as our testers managed to fit 10 suitcases in its boot. As with any Range Rover, it’s excellent off road and doesn’t skimp on luxury.
5= Volkswagen Touareg - 10 suitcases
It shares its underpinnings with the Audi Q7 and the Porsche Cayenne, so it’s no surprise that the Volkswagen Toureg is also has one of the biggest boots of the large SUV class. As with its fellow VW Group SUVs, you can fit 10 suitcases in the back of the Touareg, but unlike the Q7, it’s only a five-seater.
5= Volvo XC90 - 10 suitcases
The original Volvo XC90 was launched in 2002 and instantly gained a reputation for class-leading practicality. The current model is no different; it’s an incredibly spacious seven-seater and the boot can handle 10 suitcases. It’s also stylish and well built, while the T8 plug-in hybrid version is quick and, if you charge it regularly, cheap to run for a big SUV.
