So i could compare the Q50 with vehicles like the ATS or the 3 series on the grounds of cargo capacity but those horses have been beaten to death.

While looking over a press release for the new Corvette Stingray I noticed that the Vette actually has more cargo capacity than the Q50 so i decided to do a little digging and see what other out of segment vehicles provide more cargo space than Q50. Before you scream SKEWED, I didnt use larger sedans or SUV/CUVs, I tried to keep the list to sports cars and compacts.


Trunk Size (L)

Infiniti Q50: 352L

Corvette Stingray: 634L
Honda Fit: 585L
Subaru STi: 538L
Ferrari FF: 450L
Porsche Cayman: 425L
SRT Viper: 414L
Ford Mustang: 379L
Ford Focus Sedan: 374L
Ford Fiesta Sedan: 363L
Bentley Continental GT: 358L


Keep in mind i understand no one is going to be cross shopping a Q50 with a Stingray or Fiesta but I do think it is a little appalling some of the vehicles that beat out the Q50 for Trunk Space..

Cargo is the biggest thing that is pushing me towards QX70, but i want the new infiniti face!!

Are you planning on carrying around really big stuff in your trunk? Sure it doesn't have a big trunk, but its not a SUV or even a CUV, so I don't think it was really trying for that.

I am surprised by the cargo space of some of the vehicles you listed though (the Cayman!)

The QX70 is a far different vehicle. If cargo capacity is the most important thing to you it may be worth a look, but the two vehicles are aimed towards very different people. It should be easy to tell which is more appropriate for you.

this is actually a pretty cool thread even though the list above doesn't have any of it's competition.

i think it's kind of sad to see that the Corvette Stingray has close to double the cargo space than the Q50.

with 352L of cargospace, what exactly can we fit?

Are we talking Q50 Hybrid trunk space here, or the 3.7 regular trunk size??

any Q50 owners want to speak on how good or bad cargo space is?
On the gasser, it is plenty spacious. Best of all, it has gas struts for the trunk, so no goose necks intruding into trunk space when you close the lid. That makes a difference in *usable* space, compared to the competition which i think all use the goose necks.

I'll bet the Honda fit doesnt use goose necks... Some of the vehicles in this comparo admittedly only have like a letter drawer more space than Q50 i just found the paper comparison to be interesting, and a touch surprising
