What 4x4 has the Biggest Boot Space?
If a hatchback is not the one for you, then chances are you’re considering a 4x4, with plenty of space for whatever journey you throw at it.
Not only this, but 4x4’s in recent times have become more economically efficient than ever - making them perfect for those long journeys. With comfort and style added on top, this makes a 4x4 one of the best cars to choose from on the market today.
If you’re looking for a 4x4 with plenty of space for the kids, dog, luggage, ski equipment or whatever else you can think of, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve researched the market to give you this list of the best 4x4s, ranging from 2020 to 2023 models, with the largest boot space we could find.
Range Rover Evoque
- Seats Up: 591 litres
- Seats Down: 1,383 litres
Coming in at number ten but still with plenty of space for shopping bags and luggage is the Range Rover Evoque. This prestige vehicle boasts a boot in the 2020 model that is 10% bigger than the previous. All three rear seats fold down to a 40:20:40 set up to give you all the space you’ll need.
- Seats Up: 530 litres
- Seats Down: 1,525 litres
With all five of its seats set to occupy maximum legroom, there’s 530 litres of luggage room available in the Audi Q3. In this setup, this trumps some of the other 4x4s on the market which don’t leave much room in the back for anything other than the day to day possessions that you travel with. Fold the rear seats down entirely and you have yourself a whole 1,525 litres to play with.
- Seats Up: 475 litres
- Seats Down: 1,534 litres
Next up we have one of the most popular 4x4s in the UK; the Ford Kuga. Here Ford’s 5-seater offering is larger than some of their predecessors and makes packing for journeys super practical. The rear seats easily slide to prioritise either leg room or more boot space. With them completely flipped down, the boot space comes in at a competitive size.
- Seats Up: 550 litres
- Seats Down: 1,550 litres
The BMW X3 boasts a generous amount of room throughout the interior for both passengers and belongings. The boot is neatly designed to maximise the amount of space in here with no bulk on the sides. The maximum boot space of 1,550 litres exactly matches that of the Mercedes GLC, another fantastic 4x4 option.
- Seats Up: 142 litres
- Seats Down: 1,662 litres
With the third row of this seven-seater in place, you’ll get the standard boot space of a smaller car or hatchback. However, fold these down plus the second-row and you’ll create plenty of space for that flatpack furniture.
Skoda Octavia Estate
- Seats Up: 640 litres
- Seats Down: 1,700 litres
The 2020 Skoda Octavia Estate model has had a boost with an extra 30 litres of boot space added when all seats are positioned upright. A clever feature of this boot which gives it an advantage is a split-level floor. This allows you to store even more below the boot and gives you that added peace of mind when needing to store more valuable possessions.
- Seats Up: 670 litre
- Seats Down: 1,728 litre
The Porsche Cayenne is another premium 4x4 with a big boot space. If you are looking to fit a boatload of luggage or looking for a car with a comfy interior, the Porsche Cayenne is great for both. The back seats are on rails, allowing you to slide the seats back and forth creating even more space.
- Seats Up: 650 litres
- Seats Down: 1,740 litres
A similar size to the BMW X5, with the seats up, the Jaguar F-Pace is a great option if you are looking for a luxury 4x4 with a lot of boot space and great interior space, the F-Pace is definitely an option. You will be able to drop the seats in a 40:20:40 split allowing you to adapt the boot space to your needs.
- Seats Up: 561 litres
- Seats Down: 1,756 litres
Next up, we have the Honda CR-V. Despite the boot space having shrunk after its predecessor, the boot capacity still comes in at a practical 561 litres with the seats up. Once the rear seats are down, there is more room that you are likely to not even need. One handy feature of this boot is an adjustable floor to make it level when needing to place in larger items.
- Seats Up: 302 litres
- Seats Down: 1,856 litres
Even with all seven seats placed in the upright position, the boot space in the Volvo XC90 is pretty huge. It can hold 302 litres of luggage and jumps to a whopping 1,856 litres with all back seats placed down. It is a very roomy car with space for both possessions and passengers.
- Seats Up: 565 litres
- Seats Down: 1,996 litres
The Nissan X-Trail Model boasts an impressive amount of boot space. This is 565 on the 5-seater version, however it is still pretty spacious with the extra two seats at 445 litres. With all seats down, the 1,996 litre boot is larger than you’ll probably ever need it to be but having that extra space there is always nice. You can even purchase extra accessories such as shelves for the boot to make it as practical as possible.
- Seats Up: 909 litres
- Seats Down: 2,030
Another Land Rover that has a large boot is the Range Rover. With over 2,000 litres of boot space with the seats down, the Range Rover makes loading big items simple. Even with the rear seats up, you have 909 litres of boot space to play with. The Range Rover is definitely an option if you are looking for a smooth drive with large cargo space.
- Seats Up: 630 Litres
- Seats Down: 2,055 Litres
The 2023 Mercedes GLE has a huge boot space with both the seats up and the seats down. No matter how many seats you have down, you are guaranteed a large amount of space to keep your passengers very comfortable. There is even more storage underneath the boot floor. With the Mercedes GLE, you will never have to worry about not having enough space.
- Seats Up: 326 litres
- Seats Down: 2,120 litres
With over 2,000 litres (with the seats down), the BMW X7 has enough space for everything you could possibly need. With 5 seats up, the X7 has 750 litres of boot space. If you choose to keep all seats up you will still have plenty of space with enough room for 7 people. Although the BMW X7 isn’t the cheapest option, it’s definitely one to consider if you are looking for a luxury 4x4 with a large boot space.
Land Rover Discovery
- Seats Up: 228 litres
- Seats Down: 2,406 litres
Coming in at number 1 is the Land Rover Discovery! With all seven seats up, the boot size is small in comparison to some of the other 4x4s on this list at just 228 litres. However, with the second and third rows of seats down, the humongous 2,406 litres of space gives this 4x4 the luggage space capacity of a small van.
So there you have it, the full rundown of the best 4x4s on the market in terms of boot space. Whether it’s style, comfortability or space that you are considering when buying your next car, Saxton 4x4 is the UK’s Number 1 4x4 Dealership offering an unrivalled selection of vehicles.
