How Much Cargo Space Does the 2021 Mazda CX-5 Have?

Cargo Space: Rear Seats Up

When all the seats are up in your 2021 Mazda CX-5, you have 30.9 cubic feet of cargo space. That’s more space than you will find inside the average home refrigerator. Of course, if your cargo doesn’t stack well, you might not be able to use all of that space at once. If that’s the case, you can increase your cargo space by folding down the rear seatbacks.

Cargo Space: Rear Seats Down

The simple act of folding the rear seats down nearly doubles the amount of cargo space you can use. To be precise, you can use 59.6 cubic feet of cargo space by folding down the rear seats. The cargo measurements don’t change by trim level for the 2021 Mazda CX-5 like they might on some other vehicles.

Legroom for front passengers is a generous 41 inches, while rear passengers get slightly less at 39.6 inches. Considering how ample the cargo space is, the CX-5 is well balanced for passenger space.
