2013 Cadillac ATS: How Big is the Trunk?
December 20, 2012
A trip to the airport yesterday seemed to be the perfect opportunity to test out the trunk in our new 2013 Cadillac ATS. It's a small car, so I was interested to see how useful it is when loaded with suitcases.
In short, it's not. As the second photo shows, I had to jam the second larger suitcase diagonally just to fit it in next to the expanded roller board. My briefcase (not pictured) fit in behind that and with a purse perhaps stuffed in the corner, we would've been full. So I suppose it fit, but this 10.2-cubic-foot space is more akin to what you'd find in a coupe rather than a sedan. In fact, most compact cars are far bigger.
I would note, however, that although the forward part of trunk is on the narrow side, the aft portion is quite wide. This should be good for golf clubs, which is something the CTS struggles with.
