Cargo capacity is an essential factor to consider when choosing your new ride, and the compact SUV segment offers a great balance of people- and cargo-carrying skills.

The following pages show how compact SUVs compare when it comes to space for carrying your stuff. To come up with the top vehicles, we combined their cargo capacities with seats up and seats folded forward.
