Every 2021 Honda Accord has a trunk that gauges 16.7 cubic-feet in quantity, consisting of the Accord Crossbreed whose previous variations had actually drastically minimized freight capability. That implies it ought to have the very best freight area of any type of midsize family members car. I have actually discovered throughout these baggage checks that counting on cubic-feet is an incomplete methods of contrasting one lorry to an additional, in this instance, a real-world examination validates the Accord’s trunk preeminence.
Having Actually done a comparable freight capability examination throughout our midsize family members car contrast examination, this was truly an inevitable verdict. Still, I had not done the specific examination with all 6 bags, so I might just freely state that the Accord would certainly be much better than the Toyota Camry, Hyundai Sonata, VW Passat and also Subaru Heritage. Just how much much better is still to be addressed. Various other participants of the section? Well, the Mazda6 was consisted of because contrast and also was plainly the tiniest. The continuing to be 2 family members cars, the Kia K5 and also Nissan Altima, have actually not been luggage-tested, however their quantity numbers would certainly suggest they need to lag the Accord.
Allowed’s see just how it does it.
Yep, certain resemble a large trunk to me. Keep in mind just how much area there lags the wheel wells and also just how there aren’t any type of huge and/or uncommon outcroppings that can cause quantity dimensions not referring real real-world luggage-storing area.
You can likewise see right here that there aren’t any type of huge points suspending from the parcel rack, concealed obstacles that successfully negate readily available quantity. The gooseneck “egg-crusher” joints, at the same time, do not stay in their very own sheathed passages (as in the Subaru Heritage), however likewise do not appear to substantially hamper area (as in the VW Passat).
OK, on bags. As in every baggage examination I do, I make use of 2 midsize roller travel suitcases that would certainly require to be signed in at the airport terminal (26 inches long, 16 broad, 11 deep), 2 roll-aboard travel suitcases that simply hardly suit the expenses (24 L x 15 W x 10 D), and also one smaller sized roll-aboard that fits conveniently (23 L x 15 W x 10 D). I likewise include my spouse’s expensive carry-on simply to spruce points up a little bit (21 L x 12 W x 12 D).
Clockwise from top: 2021 Accord, Toyota Camry, VW Passat, Subaru Heritage, Hyundai Sonata
Initially, as I have with all these midsize cars, I attempted to fit the 4 greatest bags on their side in between the wheel wells. Fascinating, I might not in the Accord … ish. I might rather fit among the greatest bags after that the 3 carry-ons. This would certainly resemble the Passat (reduced right). ! The Accord’s trunk is likewise distinctly high, suggesting I might rather pile the 4 greatest bags to make them fit. Just how exhilarating.
In either case you sufficed, you’re entrusted to a terrible great deal of area behind the bags in addition to behind the wheel wells. Allow’s see what you can load it with.
Yep, all the bags fit. With area to save. And also because area to extra, you can fit …
An entire damn colder! A 38- quart one. This fool typically just emerges in truly large things like the Toyota 4Runner, Subaru Wilderness, Land Vagabond Protector, Honda CR-V and also Toyota RAV4. Right here it is in a family members car.
Currently, it ought to be stated that the strangely inflexible ends of the expensive bag really did not permit it to fit together with the colder. The blue duffle bag is the exact same quantity as the expensive bag and also took care of to fit, so allow’s simply go in advance and also live with this outcome. There’s also some area left over.
Of the family members cars checked, this was without a doubt the greatest added thing that might be included. The Hyundai Sonata took care of a Play ‘n load, and also the Camry fit a tiny folded up baby stroller. Every one of the above is much better than countless portable crossovers that battle simply to fit the standard collection of 6 bags.
So there you go: The Honda Accord trunk allows sufficient to fit 6 items of baggage and also an entire damn colder.
