The biggest boots in the business

 

I like big boots and I cannot lie… A big boot is such a valuable thing on a car, and is potentially one reason why people have embraced SUVs with such enthusiasm. The argument there is that an SUV’s boot can be packed from floor to ceiling, offering both flexibility and treasured volume. A sedan may have a more contained luggage space, but that doesn’t mean it’s not practical, as you can see in the figures below:

 

4x4s

This is no surprise – the big daddy of the Toyota stable, the Land Cruiser 200 boasts a mammoth luggage bin of 1276 litres, making it easily the biggest with the Toyota badge on it. It’s close kin, the Lexus LX, actually has 5 litres more (1431 litres) due to interior styling, while the Toyota Fortuner reveals yet another weapon in its formidable armoury with a luggage capacity of 716 litres.

Rounding off the big 4x4s is the Land Cruiser Prado, which can handle some 620 litres of cargo. 

 

SUV/Crossovers

The new Toyota RAV4 is a much bigger can than it was when it first disrupted the SUV scene, now featuring a luggage capacity of 698 litres, yet another reason for its success as a family vehicle.

Offering perhaps the best luggage capacity for your money on the entire car market is the Toyota Rush, with a phenomenal 609 litres.

On the Lexus side of things, the Lexus NX has an impressive 500 litres of cargo room, slightly more than the 453 litres of the Lexus RX’s bin.

 

Sedans

This might surprise you – the sedan with the biggest boot out of both the Toyota and Lexus brands is the sporty and svelte Lexus IS (480 litres), followed closely by the new Toyota Corolla – itself a good looker, with 460 litres.

The ultra-luxurious Lexus LS offers 440 litres of luggage space in its boot, in part because the design focused more on creating space for rear passengers than their belongings. The Lexus ES rounds off this category with a boot of 420 litres.

 

Hatches

The hatch category actually makes for some interesting reading, mainly because the new Starlet actually has the most to offer in this regard – 345 litres of luggage space. Then, also surprising, is the Yaris with 310 litres, a smidge ahead of the Corolla Hatch with 294 litres of luggage volume.
