Not that any car with a front passenger seat couldn't handle this modest haul of groceries, but the GT-R's surprisingly spacious trunk does give it an edge over most supercars in its class. Only the Corvette can match it when it comes to usable cargo space and even then it's just a big, flat area under the glass which makes it a bit dicey at times.
You could easily fit a few suitcases in the back of the GT-R and not ever think twice about it. Not that people who buy these cars are really all that concerned about cargo space, but hey, it does make life a little easier when you're using this car on a daily basis.

I was soo lucky to land the 2009 Nissan GT-R as our road trip car to Vegas. I usually HATE driving to Vegas, such a boring trip. But the GT-R's seats are comfortable enough for both the driver and passenger to withstand 283 miles and our car has all the amenities to make that long, boring slog to Sin City bearable. We had satellite radio so we wouldn't have to keep switching stations, seat heaters!, 480 horsepower for short bursts of speed to enliven things and the entertainment of watching fellow motorists drool at the car.
