How much can you fit into the back of a new 2018 Subaru Crosstrek? Well, if you look at the specs, you’ll see it can hold 20.8 cu ft. of stuff behind its back seat, and then 55.3 cu ft. when it’s lowered. Great, but what exactly do those figures mean? How much stuff do those cargo volume figures indicate?
To give you an idea, we fit a variety of items into the redesigned Crosstrek in this video. We use golf clubs to indicate its width, and a 38-quart cooler to provide a general baseline of space. Then, we see how many of the five suitcases on hand will fit behind the back seat.
The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek, which represents a complete redesign, has grown from its predecessor, and we can really see that inside the trunk. The opening is bigger, as is the space, allowing for a bigger, more versatile place to store your stuff. Plus, in true Subaru fashion, if something doesn’t fit inside, the big, sturdy, standard roof rails make it easy to mount racks and roof boxes.
