2008 Mazda CX-9: Cargo Capacity

June 02, 2008

2008 Mazda CX-9: Cargo Area

I did some spur-of-the-moment furniture shopping this weekend. Luckily, I was driving an SUV with 101 cubic feet of space in the back.

SUVs like the Mazda CX-9 can save you lots of moolah on delivery fees. The three-piece set fit nicely into the back of the CX-9 with the second and third row seats folded.

The third row was already flat and the second row seats were super easy to fold with one hand. No fumbling with latches and levers, just grab the handle on the side and they pull right up. Light and easy.

My 6'1" passenger had to move his seat forward quite a bit for the 2nd row on his side to lie flat. But on my 5'4" driver's side, there was plenty of room.

The back hatch is manually operated but the load height is comfortable, not too high for lifting chairs into the back.

Now if I could just break the habit of bringing home furniture that I don't really need.
