2016 Toyota Mirai: How Much Room Do You Need?
by Michael Massey, Vehicle Testing Assistant on November 2, 2016
I popped the trunk on our 2016 Toyota Mirai for the first time before driving three friends to a reality-show dinner party. What I saw concerned me. There's a bump in the cargo floor due to the rear hydrogen tank and battery, which are stacked on top of each other.
It didn't look like there was much space left over.
Fortunately, we didn't have that much stuff to load. Three backpacks, a pan of brownies and a couple packages of soy chorizo went in without issue. It didn't matter that the rear seatbacks don't fold down, and since the trunk hinges disappear into their own covered channels, there was no fear of crushed cargo.
There's no doubt that the Mirai's trunk is modest, but it got the job done in this case. And less time spent worrying about our cargo meant more time to focus on who was or wasn't getting a rose.
