CUV’s (Crossover Utility Vehicles) are very popular these days! Typically, with a lower price and better gas mileage than their larger SUV cousins, CUV’s provide all the room and convenience needed for a daily driver. However, when it comes time to carry extra cargo, CUV’s just don’t have extra space like SUV’s. So the added carrying capacity of our Car Top Cargo is a CUV’s best friend!
We were curious as to how much our Car Top Cargo could increase the cargo carrying capacity of a typical CUV. So we used a 2016 Mazda CX-3 for our highly (un) scientific test! When the back seat is occupied, the manufacturer’s rated cargo capacity is 9.6 to 12.4 cubic feet. With our CTC-18S model, 18 cubic feet of carrying capacity is added for a total of 27.6 to 30.4 cubic feet, effectively increasing cargo capacity by 150%! When the back seat is unoccupied and folded flat, the carrier adds 18 cubic feet for a total of 59.7 to 62.5 cubic feet. That’s only 10 cubic feet less than the maximum cargo capacity of Mazda’s largest vehicle, the CX-9!
With a Car Top Cargo carrier, CUV owners get all benefits of a CUV with the cargo carrying capability of a larger vehicle! Order yours today just in time for your holiday travels!
