A full-size, four-drawer filing cabinet fits in a Ford Capri MkII. Just!

OT: I still have the cabinet, but not the Capri. Regrettably.

The boot of my armada is pretty large.
Middle row folds flat, passenger seat folds flat too.

I moved the entirety of parents belongings (sofa's, beds, wardrobe, garden furniture, the lot) from a 3bed semi into another 3bed a mile away.
All in a Disco 4.
6 trips. Probably no good for the DPF smile

I once spent a frustrating couple of hours trying and failing to disassemble a grandfather clock. Giving it up as a bad job, I then found it would just slide into the back of the XC90 without any bother at all, alongside the bench seat and assorted other bits and bobs that I was rescuing from my father's house.

The subsequent journey down the M6 was rather more musical than normal and you'll doubtless be pleased to hear that the clock was in perfect working order at the other end.

Think this is a Ford (US market)
that is, I believe, the Ford Freestyle -- an early crossover built on a unibody platform shared with Volvo

a bit later, the larger and more design-conscious Ford Flex continued the brief

the Flex is for me a muse of sorts; it marches to a different drummer (albeit also as a unibody); and I also enjoy how a few curmudgeons on PH get all wound up about it, lol

Several years ago at Uni we conducted a precision experiment to find out if the BMW E30 boot was designed to transport old televisions.
We considered it a success.

I can confirm you CANNOT get an Escort Cosworth tailgate in an Escort Cosworth.
That's without spoilers fitted too.

Like you say, few do.

Smart Roadster, so allows longer items from the boot.
Very handy when you want to get four wheels with tyres in your roadster.
