The cargo area might be larger, I didn't actually look at the measurements, but it doesn't look like the space is as usable. I don't know... it just looked really tight in the cargo area, and the cargo floor was much higher than the other SUVs I also looked at. It might have more cubic footage, but the shape of the cargo area is not as good as the competition.
I agree with you on the design of the cargo area, but what I'm looking for is a little more utility then my coupe and still have a sporty look. The interior isnt that bad except when I compare it to my wifes Lexus. The interior in my coupe isn't a showcase either. I'm going to wait untill I find out if BMW is going to add HP to the 6 in MY04, and if not then I will start hunting for the best choice I can find.
