2014 Mazda CX-5: Will All This Fit?

2014 Mazda CX-5

I took our Mazda CX-5 this weekend knowing full well that I'd be bringing home precisely one metric boat-load of stuff from my parent's house. I also took it over our CR-V even though the Mazda has about 6 fewer cubic feet of cargo space.

So, let's see if all that stuff pictured above (minus the giant marble-topped table) will fit inside.

It does! I must unashamedly commend myself for correctly eyeballing 65 cubic feet of stuff.

I just dropped the seats using the handy trunk pulls and removed the nifty cargo cover that attaches to the liftgate somewhat like a hatchback's. With Tetris music playing in my head whilst moving things about, it was obvious that it would fit with ease.

Would the CR-V, RAV4 or Forester fit more? Yes, by 7 or 8 more cubes. But that would've just meant more items from my childhood I would've had to bring to Los Angeles and sell on eBay.
