2012 Jaguar XF: Small Trunk Opening

January 8, 2013

2012 Jaguar XF

That box is exactly 16.5 inches tall and as you can see I can just squeeze it through the very center of the Jaguar's trunk opening. I think this is a problem.

There's much more space in the XF's trunk than you can utilize at times because of the sedan's small trunk opening. Stuff will fit in the Jag's trunk, but too often I find myself unable to get the object in the trunk so I can use the available space.

Just a few weeks ago my wife asked me to put a box of Halloween decorations in the trunk of the Jag. It was a much larger box than the one in the photo. I could see that the box would fit in the XF's trunk, but it was just too large to get through its puny trunk opening.

How did I solve the problem? Simple, I put it in the trunk of my mother-in-law's Hyundai Genesis sedan instead.
