2012 Volkswagen Beetle: Cargo Area
July 16, 2012
I bought a lamp this weekend that came in a bulky cube-shaped box. With the dramatic slope of the Beetle's back window, the box wouldn't fit into the 15.4 cubic feet of rear cargo area and still allow me to close the hatch. So I lowered the rear seats which brings the cargo volume up to 29.9 cu. ft.
As you can see in the photo, the seats do not fold anywhere near flat. Even so, I was able to push the box further into the cargo area and the privacy cover held the box in place.
