How is the cargo space in the BMW SUVs defined?
I measured (rough) the dimensions of the cargo area and came up with approx 38"x32"x20" for the X5 (with the 'cargo net') ... which, with generous additions for various nooks and crannies would still only come up to about 22 cu ft of trunk space. But the specifications listed are 54 cu ft?!?!
I found the X3 to be a little smaller in my rough (using a measuring tape) calculations ... but this is listed as having 71 cu ft of cargo space! A LOT more than the X5!?
Now, I am thinking of selling my 330i and getting an SUV (baby on the way) ... but these cargo definitions are confusing the heck out of me ...
The Lexus RX330 and the Volvo XC 90 are listed as having 84+ cu ft of cargo space!!!
Is this with the rear seats folded down?
What gives? ... Any insight from the forum?
