As small as my G35 looks, it has a surprising amount of cargo room, including the trunk. I just need a trunk big enough to fit my 4'x1.5' hardware bag in. Everthing else should fit, if that does. That being said, if the battery IS in the trunk, it better be under it, where the spare tire would normally be (are you listening, GM? Please don't force me to buy a BMW by overlooking these little details). Also, I am not a truck kind of guy; I like sporty coupes, so that's what I buy. If it were not for my need of cargo space, I'd probably be looking at vettes instead... Nahh, I'd still look at the 'Maro also 'cuz it looks so bad-@$$!
Well I can ge mine and my wife's stuff in the Sky for a 5 day beach trip... With the top down... and it has much less trunk space than the camaro...
thats all I was geting at...
Maybe you should invest in a 2009 HHR panel SS then...

That solves the "hanging string" mystery.

Or does it?

How in the world did that guy get in there?! The opening looks a little small but maybe that's just my eyes. I wonder how much easier it is to lean into that trunk than in was to lean over the 4th. Gen. trunk. It doesn't look like there rear facia stick backward as far and it doesn't seem like the opening is as high; that should make it easier to load and unload the trunk. That would be cool Is this car going to have a flat floor too? I thought there was not going to be a spare so maybe it'll be flat and deep. That would be nice too.

Sorry for the rambling...

Yeah, 11.6 cubic feet of cargo room is pretty big if you ask me.

I was considering getting the Solstice Coupe GXP (still am) but it only has 5.6 cubic feet of cargo space, not practical for a daily driver, and sadly probably the only thing that'll prevent me from getting it.

My SS/SC has 13.8 cubic feet so it's close to what the Camaro will have give or take 1 or 2 cubic feet, and it'll fit a lot.

But yeah like my car and looks like on the Camaro the opening doesn't appear to be too big...

I don't recall ever seeing measurements. Judging by that fella' it looks like probably ~ 24-inches on the bottom by ~32 at the top. I'd find it hard to believe you couldn't get a golf bag in there pretty easy. Hmm...

I'm just happy to finally know that I'll be getting a trunk. Now, I don't have to keep looking back every minute to make sure that someone isn't breaking into my car to steal my bags. I can finally put them in the trunk.

Out of site means burglars pass over your car...plain and simple. That's one of my biggest concerns about my 4th Gen right now.

Sure, but, what, did he crawl into the and over the seats to contort himself into the trunk, LOL?! That's just a plain funny picture.

I'm not worried about a golf bag. I'm worried about a subwoofer box. That was a nightmare with the Cobalt I used to own. It was almost as bad as the wiring mess in the same car.
