Cargo Space in 9-3

OK, I heard some folks at Saabtoberfest bragging about cargo space in their hatch-style 900s/9-3s.

Does anyone out there have the exact dimensions of the maximum cargo space with seats down and cargo tray removed?

I'm waiting on a 9-3 being found at auction by a local dealer but want to try to plan for transporting some furniture south to my boyfriend's place. I think, with the right padding and planning, I should be able to do it in the 9-3 and still take my dog!

Not an exact dimension, but I have been able to a fit a picnic table in the back, a big armchair, a barbecue grill in its box, and enough clothes for a two week trip that my wife and I took to Quebec a couple of winters ago. Of course, that's not all at once.

It's big.

According to the specs on edmunds.com, maximum cargo capacity is 46 square feet for a 1999-2002 9-3.

If you take out the rear seat cushions the rear seat will fold FLAT without having to sit up against the steering wheel.

here is a pic of the cavernous space.

and also one of me hauling a giant box!

I was able to fit two bumpers and a spoiler in the rear with the seat folded down, and I had room for more.

It's almost 50 cubic feet with the seat folded down... I've fit some outrageous amounts of stuff in it. Honestly, it's huge.

Cool. Thanks for the box photo especially.

I've got two tables - a two-tier massive coffee table that can come apart as well as a dining room table with leaves that can come apart - that need to go between Vermont and Washington, D.C. I'm pretty sure with enough padding around the edges and the dog sitting in the front seat on the way down, I should be able to get these in there no problem.

Sweet. :P :P

7 foot Xmas tree.

Completely INSIDE the car. Thr guy that threw it in there was like
"where ya' wanna' put it?"
*open hatch
"Inside... it'll fit"
The trunk of the tree was up by our heads in the front and it was baled..
but as the trunk *slinked* closed he says...
"wow...never saw that before!"



(have a pic somewhere...)

Since I'm a goalie when I was looking for a car I actually took my hockey bags to make sure they would fit. As you can see there's plenty of room for bags and more! Just another reason to love my Saab.

the funniest part is - even with all that weight - the car still appears to be sitting level

ahhhh....chest freezer from Home Depot, and the hatch closed!..

Nine sections of fence railing (hatch open) but lots of incredulous looks from pickup truck loaders....

Lots of firewood, pea gravel, landscaping, changing tables, lotsa boxes, etc...

It's not called a Swedish pickup truck for nothing.....

somewhat related sidenote: In college I had a roomie who vowed never to own more than he could fit in the back of his pickup truck. That statement really resonated with me and for years, I kinda stuck to that. The queen-sized futon fit nicely, as did the platform I built for it, but I had to make a couple of trips for all my records. Yeah, uh huh, that's right. Vinyl LPs...

Thats only 550lbs. Has Viggen springs in the rear. Stock "s" in the front for now. To busy.. You should see it with a batch of roll bars and other parts headed to the powdercoater... Then it is on the bump stops. The gas mileage is so much better than the 250 ford...

when we were moving my little brother out of the dorms i know for a fact that it will hold almost as much as my dads new 4runner with both our seats down, the only reason he fit more was that his back is square and ours slops down. the thing is a friggen pickup!!
