Interior space is an important consideration for many consumers, and this is probably why the compact SUV segment and the subcompact SUV segment are growing at such a fast pace. Mazda is well aware of the situation, and the Japanese manufacturer has developed a full range of versatile vehicles that offer plenty of cargo space.

There are several spacious vehicles in the new Mazda vehicle lineup, but we have singled out three that really stand out. If you are looking for a vehicle that offers plenty of cargo space, the following 2017 Mazda models are for you.

2017 Mazda3 Sport

The Mazda3 Sport 2017 is the hatchback version of the Mazda3 compact range. Fully redesigned this year, it proposes a new system called G-Vectoring Control, which aims to improve vehicle stability and the comfort of the occupants in different driving situations, such as on the highway and in the city at low speeds. It still features a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine developing 155 horsepower as standard, or an optional 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine developing 184 horsepower.

Better yet, the new Mazda3 Sport offers 572 liters of cargo space with all seats in place, and 1,334 liters with the rear seats folded down. This is an ideal choice if we are looking for a versatile vehicle that also offers the driving behavior of a car.

2017 Mazda CX-5

Like the other two models on this list, the 2017 Mazda CX-5 has been completely redesigned this year. The new generation offers a more sporty style, a higher-end cockpit and new safety and connectivity technologies. The engines remain the same as the older generation, except for the fact that the 2017 Mazda CX-5 will be available towards the end of the year with a diesel engine.

The dimensions have not changed much compared to the older generation which means that the 2017 Mazda CX-5 offers nearly 1,000 liters of cargo space with all seats in place, and 1,835 liters with the rear seat folded flat.

2017 Mazda CX-9

The new 2017 Mazda CX-9 launched this year offers an extensive list of features and a high-end version that could compete with many sport utility vehicles offered by luxury brands. Under the hood, the CX-9 is now equipped with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 227 horsepower and can tow 3,500 pounds. It offers an average fuel consumption rating of only 8.5 liters per 100 kilometers on the highway.

In addition to all this, the 2017 Mazda CX-9 offers three rows of seats and more than 1,000 liters of cargo space when you lower the third row.
