Cool Vehicles with the largest Boot Space

One of my acquaintance wants to purchase a Car/SUV which is having the largest boot space since he is a frequent air traveller and he wants to keep his big suitcases. The ride quality is very important and whether the vehicle is Diesel/Petrol doesn't matters.

And, the budget is 15 lakhs.

So please list the vehicles with large practical boots.

Go for the Skoda Octavia with your eyes closed !! It takes 3 big suitcases without a problem + some knick knacks !!!



Cheers

Logan provides good boot space compared to other cars. For SUVs, you can go for safari.

If boot space is only the criteria then try for OMNI. It has lots of space for carrying suitcases as it is for travelling from home to ariport.

Innova's perfect for lugging bags. The rear seats will fold away when he needs to move his house. If he is not keen on an MUV, then the Skoda Octavia / Laura will do just as well. The Sonata has a large boot too.

The guy has a lavish budget of 15lakhs! The Omni and Logan are definitely nowhere close on his radar.

Seeing the ad for the Octavia, i am led to believe it has great boot space.

Go for either of the Skoda- Octavia or Laura. Octavia is been on our roads for sometime now and IMO quite boring as of today(no offence Octavia wallas), so i would suggest a Laura since he s got a 15l budget.

Tata Safari 2.2 if the preference is SUV and Skoda Octavia is Sedan. Try out these two along with the big suitcases !!

Days of 32 Kg X2 for USA are long past and in most airlines its 23 X2 for US and 20 Kg X1 for all other destinations so this much can fit in any car.

Others have given you practical advise, but How about Telcoline or Mahindra Scorpio getaway with a canvas cover for the back

TATA winger Ace deluxe version with seats removed and a small restobar kinda thing fitted to beat the traffic blues to and fro from the airport.

Pick the Innova. It has a HUGE boot, good ride quality for an MUV and Toyota reliability.

Also, rear seats fold to extend the already big boot on Octavia. Notchback boot design also makes a very big boot opening.

I believe GV has only 400 ltr boot, if you are not crossing seat height.
