2016 BMW 340i: Will the Luggage Fit?
by Mike Schmidt, Vehicle Testing Manager on July 6, 2016
Will the luggage fit? To answer this question we loaded our 2016 BMW 340i with bags in different configurations and took photos. What constitutes carry-on luggage varies depending upon who you ask. So for the sake of standardization we used the same blue carry-on bag — size (21 x15x10 inches) and red checked bag — size (30x20x13 inches).

Access to the cargo area
The trunk has a large opening that is deep and wide, allowing easy access. Recessed hinges keep them from intruding into the cargo area itself. Load height is 26.5 inches from the ground and, fully opened, the trunk handle is 59.5 inches up. Second-row seatbacks split 40/20/40.
Inside the trunk
The trunk is not deep enough to fit two carry-on bags lengthwise. But the space is tall enough to fit both if one is loaded at an angle. Overall the cargo area it measures roughly 34 inches deep by 38 inches wide (at the wheel wells).
