Every 2021 Honda Accord has a trunk that steps sixteen.seven cubic-ft in volume, which includes the Accord Hybrid whose past versions experienced seriously lowered cargo potential. That suggests it ought to have the ideal cargo space of any midsize loved ones sedan. Despite the fact that I have uncovered in the course of these luggage checks that relying on cubic-ft is an imperfect suggests of comparing a person car or truck to a further, in this circumstance, a true-globe test confirms the Accord’s trunk supremacy. 

Possessing done a similar cargo potential test in the course of our midsize loved ones sedan comparison test, this was seriously a foregone conclusion. Nevertheless, I hadn’t done the correct test with all six bags, so I could only loosely point out that the Accord would be much better than the Toyota Camry, Hyundai Sonata, VW Passat and Subaru Legacy. How substantially much better is still to be answered. Other members of the segment? Well, the Mazda6 was incorporated in that comparison and was evidently the smallest. The remaining two loved ones sedans, the Kia K5 and Nissan Altima, have not been luggage-examined, but their volume figures would point out they ought to be guiding the Accord. 

Let us see how it does it.

Yep, absolutely sure appears like a large trunk to me. Notice how substantially space there is guiding the wheel wells and how there aren’t any strange and/or huge protrusions that can end result in volume measurements not corresponding with genuine true-globe luggage-storing space.

You can also see below that there aren’t any huge items hanging down from the parcel shelf, concealed impediments that successfully cancel out available volume. The gooseneck “egg-crusher” hinges, in the meantime, do not reside in their personal sheathed tunnels (as in the Subaru Legacy), but also you should not seem to noticeably impede space (as in the VW Passat). 

Alright, on to bags. As in every luggage test I do, I use two midsize roller suitcases that would require to be checked in at the airport (26 inches very long, sixteen vast, 11 deep), two roll-aboard suitcases that just barely in shape in the overhead (24L x 15W x 10D), and a person smaller roll-aboard that suits quickly (23L x 15W x 10D). I also involve my wife’s extravagant overnight bag just to spruce items up a little bit (21L x 12W x 12D).

Clockwise from top rated: 2021 Accord, Toyota Camry, VW Passat, Subaru Legacy, Hyundai Sonata

1st, as I have with all these midsize sedans, I tried to in shape the 4 biggest bags on their side in between the wheel wells. Appealing, I could not in the Accord … ish. I could alternatively in shape a person of the biggest bags then the a few have-ons. This would be similar to the Passat (decrease suitable). However! The Accord’s trunk is also uniquely tall, this means I could alternatively stack the 4 biggest bags to make them in shape. How thrilling. 

Either way you minimize it, you’re left with an terrible ton of space guiding the bags as nicely as guiding the wheel wells. Let us see what you can fill it with.

Yep, all the bags in shape. With home to spare. And in that home to spare, you can in shape …

A whole damn cooler! A 38-quart a person. This sucker typically only will make appearances in seriously roomy stuff like the Toyota 4Runner, Subaru Outback, Land Rover Defender, Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4. But below it is in a loved ones sedan. 

Now, it ought to be reported that the weirdly rigid ends of the extravagant bag failed to make it possible for it to in shape alongside the cooler. However, the blue duffle bag is the exact volume as the extravagant bag and managed to in shape, so let’s just go in advance and dwell with this end result. There is certainly even some home left about.

Of the loved ones sedans examined, this was by much the biggest additional item that could be added. The Hyundai Sonata managed a Pack ‘N Participate in, and the Camry in shape a little folded stroller. All of the higher than is much better than a lot of compact crossovers who wrestle just to accommodate the essential established of six bags.

So there you go: The Honda Accord trunk is large adequate to in shape six items of luggage and a whole damn cooler.
