Sporting just over 500 litres with the rear seats in place, the CX-5 has slightly less room for luggage than many of its rivals, including the Kodiaq and X-Trail. It's hardly poky, though; there’s still enough room to fit two large pushchairs inside and it's wide enough to take a standard set of golf clubs.
In addition, folding down the rear seats creates a huge, flat load bay with no annoying steps or crevices. The boot floor isn't height-adjustable, but there is a usefully large storage area beneath it, plus two handy cubbyholes behind the rear wheel arches. And because the floor sits almost flush with the boot opening, there’s no awkward lip to heave things over.
