Cadillac Lyriq Luggage Test: How much fits in the trunk?

Cadillac Lyriq Luggage Test: How much fits in the trunk?



The Cadillac Lyriq is one of the growing number of electric vehicles on GM's Ultium platform, and like the other midsize SUVs on that platform (Chevy Blazer EV and Equinox EV, Honda Prologue, Acura ZDX), a priority was placed on rear passenger space and an aerodynamic, tapering roofline over cargo capacity. Despite being comparable to midsize SUVs in terms of exterior dimensions, their cargo capacity numbers would all be on the small side for non-luxury compact SUVs.

Now, as I found in the Blazer EV luggage test, its 25.5 cubic-feet was still just sufficient to hold all the standard luggage test bags. You couldn't really hold anything else, though. The Lyriq, however, is listed as having 28 cubic-feet of cargo space. Let's see if there's a difference.




Here is the cargo area in question. You can see pretty clearly how much that tapered roofline cuts into the space, resulting in a cargo area that's almost more akin to the sport-utility "coupes" of the world.

There's no frunk. Moving on.

Like other EVs, though, there is a deep underfloor storage area. It is more voluminous than what you'll find in the Blazer. The duffle bag shown here in the Lyriq wouldn't quite fit in the Blazer.
