6. 2013 Volkswagen Passat
Precisely tying the bad-boy Hyundai in trunk volume is Volkswagen’s Americanized Passat. This midsized sedan offers up 15.9 cubic feet of boot space in a slightly tidier package than the Genesis, albeit one that’s probably a lot less entertaining to drive.
Glancing over the spec sheet nothing really stands out about the Passat. All of its key dimensions, from wheelbase to rear-seat legroom to the size of its fuel tank fall just about in the middle of this comparison. It’s probably exactly the way Vee-Dub engineered it.

One exciting thing about the Passat is the availability of a diesel engine. Its 2.0-liter TDI delivers 140 horsepower with a giant lump of torque, 236 lb-ft. Interestingly that little oil-burner can be matched with a shift-it-yourself six-speed manual transmission. For this reason alone you should consider buying a Passat.
