Lexus LC Convertible Luggage Test: How much fits in the trunk?

Lexus LC Convertible Luggage Test: How much fits in the trunk?

Leave no stone unturned, right? I've actually luggage tested the Lexus LC 500 before, but that was the coupe. And with it, I was able to fit a surprising amount of stuff inside. Admittedly, by taking advantage of the back seat.

The LC 500 Convertible, however, is a different story. It has 4.7 cubic-feet compared to the coupe's 5.4, and while seven-tenths of a cube may amount to nothing in SUVs and family sedans, it can be a make-or-break amount when we're talking tiny trunks like these.

It's also important to note the LC 500h hybrid has the same trunk as the Convertible. Both the hybrid battery and Convertible roof rob the same amount of real estate from the standard trunk, which also explains why there's no LC 500h convertible.


Here is the trunk in question. It sure is small, but the opening is actually quite large, so that's nice.

You'll note there's some little thingies inside it, though.

This is a tire inflator kit. And no, it won't fit under the floor.

This is a first aid kit, which doesn't seem like the best use of trunk space, but hey, people get ouchies. I decided to stuff it on top of the tire inflator box for this test.

Now to the bags, as if we're really going to need the full boilerplate description of them. As with every Luggage Test, I use two midsize roller suitcases that would need to be checked in at the airport (26 inches long, 16 wide, 11 deep), two black roll-aboard suitcases that just barely fit in the overhead (24L x 15W x 10D), and one smaller green roll-aboard that fits easily (23L x 15W x 10D). I also include my wife's fancy overnight bag just to spruce things up a bit (21L x 12W x 12D).
