2015 Porsche Macan: Holds My Giant Mountain Bike
February 23, 2015
My Giant XTC hard tail is a fairly big mountain bike. Confusingly, small Giant bicycles exist, but mine truly fits the name: it's an XL-sized frame and it rolls on 29-inch wheels. Despite its dimensional bigness, it fits in the back of our 2015 Porsche Macan, but only just.
The rear seats have to be down, of course, but I don't have to make any allowances with the front seat position, especially on the driver side, because the tire clears it fully. In fact, there's a nice flat spot behind the driver's seat for a gear bag.
And it turns out the lip at the rear edge of the slightly sunken load floor is a good thing. It helps keep the bike in position and eliminates the risk of it hanging out too far and getting smacked by the closing hatch.
