Hi everyone,

I'm looking to potentially hire a Q3 for my upcoming road trip. We have 4 adults in total so we can't fold down the back seats for more luggage space.

May I ask if the trunk space will be able to fit four 26 inch suitcases? The actual dimensions are 65x 45 x 25cm (26 x 18 x10 inch).

Thank you so much for helping in advance!

Cheers,
Chris

That's not easy to answer without having the exact suitcases to try...

Be aware, the Q3 luggage space has difficult dimensions. The problem is the rear seat back leans into the space and the rear hatch leans the other way, so while there is a lot of volume and a large cargo floor area, it can be difficult to fit anything bulky and tall. I can just barely fit our ice-chest in the center for a camping trip, and then can only pack small and soft items into the odd shaped spaces left around it.

And, because the rear hatch is sloped so much, you also cannot stand up anything tall behind the rear seat without worrying about smashing the rear glass when you close the hatch. I have had the experience of picking someone up from an airport with two large roller cases and not being able to fit both without folding a seat down, to use the head-room of the passenger area. The same cases would have easily fit in my older A4 avant cargo area but had no chance in the Q3.

Three "carry-on" (small) suitcases plus a medium size duffle bag....that is about it. The Q3 can't carry much...that's why I bought the roof carrier bars (I modified the much cheaper Q5 bars to fit), and a Jegs 18 cu-ft roof cargo box ($159)

You need a Q5 or new generation Tiguan.
