1. 2013 Ford Taurus

And here it is, the most spacious schlepper in AutoGuide’s Battle of the Boots. Livery drivers rejoice, Ford’s raging bull takes top honors with more than 20 cubic feet of volume in its aft cargo hold.

At 112 inches the car’s wheelbase is the third longest in this competition, falling behind the lanky Chrysler twins and Hyundai’s Genesis. Luggage capacity must have been a top priority for engineers because when it comes to interior space the Taurus is one of the smaller cars in this comparison.

What it lacks in cabin room though, it more than makes up for with choice. Buyers have three engines to pick from and can even opt for all-wheel drive. The mainstream powerplant is a 3.5-liter V6 delivering 288 horsepower. Economy-minded shoppers can spend a little more up front to save some cash at the gas pump. A 2.0-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost engine is optional and delivers up to 32 miles per gallon on the highway. Also, driving enthusiasts can go with the SHO, which offers a 365 horsepower twin-turbocharged V6.

But at the end of the day cargo capacity is what this Top 10 list is all about, and the Ford Taurus is our junk-in-the-trunk champ.

    Who the fuck cares about the size in cubic feets ?!?! FFS !
    This review becomes absolutely irrelevant by using that obsolete metric system!

    Ford Forever! Ford is always good in comfort too. I have even added it to my Wishberg-http://wishberg.com/kakau/wish/cars You’ll can check out the other cars for which I wish and steal them from my wishlist too :D Enjoy!

    You dumb fuck! The metric system is the standard everywhere in the world except in the U.S. Your ignorance is disgusting!

    You are both about as ignorant as one can get. Cubit “Feet” is not metric. It’s English. Did either of you ever graduate the third grade? Apparently you spent your educational years picking your noses and learning colorful metaphors.

    Varga: isn’t that a Hungarian name???? If so you come from a rather unique background and the best you can do it use language to show your ‘low class and degraded vernacular skills, shame on you!

    The CVT can be a sporty transmission, if not a bit more maintenance-intensive–remember, no shifting means more time in the powerband, great for that 80-120 passing acceleration on the highway. Nissan’s Xtronic is a whole lot better than the hunk of junk Dodge was using in the Caliber, if that’s what you’re worried about.

    They’re all so ugly and look like hatchbacks. There was a time when sedans had class and distinction. I hope it returns.
