Topping the Maxima by more than 1.5 cubic feet is the freshly overhauled Honda Accord. In sedan form this Japanese mainstay delivers up to 15.8 cubic feet of trunk space, a figure made all the more impressive by the car’s overall length, which was shortened nearly four inches compared to the previous model.
Not surprisingly the Accord Coupe offers considerably less cargo volume, but we’re talking about sedans in this comparison, not two-doors so it doesn’t really matter. If you’re just dying to know, the coupe offers up to 13.7 cubes.
