Edmunds list the Prius cargo space with the rear seats up as 14.4
cubic feet.
What is the cargo space with the rear seats down?


Can someone look in the Prius owners manual and
tell me what the Prius cargo space is with the rear seats down?

In 3 years of living with it - and before having owned both a Range Rover
and a BMW X5 - enough!  Enuff said?

Having just re-read what I wrote above I don't think it came across very
well at all.  So much for knee-jerk replies after a few beers :-(  Apologies
to everyone.

What I was really trying to say (but not doing it very well) is that I have
no idea what the load carrying capacity is, either in terms of cu ft or
weight, but what I do know is that when I first saw the available space (in
the showroom) I was a little concerned about the shallow boot (trunk).
However, in the 3 years that I've owned it I can honestly say that it hasn't
been a problem - everything I've wanted to move around I have been able to
move around.  The singular exception was last summer, when I put roof bars
and a roof box on to help with 4 adults' luggage on a 3 week touring
holiday.  If the original OP has a specific issue or requirement then none
of this is in the least helpful.

My manual gives the cargo capacity by weight but not by volume.
