One of the biggest concerns among existing Chevrolet Corvette owners when the Corvette C8 was in development was if the mid-engine sports car would still have enough room for luggage, golf bags and other large items. General Motors recognized this widely held concern and addressed it, giving the vehicle a total of 12.6 cubic feet of cargo volume between its front and rear trunks.
YouTuber and 2020 Corvette C8 owner ‘Brink of Speed’ recently decided to show his viewers just how much stuff he could fit in the trunk of the car for a clearer, real-world depiction of how big the vehicle’s two cargo cavities are.
The rear trunk in the 2020 Corvette C8 seems to get most of the attention online, as it was specifically designed to hold golf clubs – something middle-aged and elderly Corvette buyers have deemed extremely important. As demonstrated in this video, though, the size of the front trunk is also quite impressive. The owner of the vehicle in this video manages to fit a carry-on suitcase, a duffel bag and a decently sized women’s handbag in the front trunk area alone – more than enough for a weekend getaway. While the front trunk opening isn’t very big, it makes up for it with its depth. In the rear cargo area, Brink of Speed manages to fit a golf bag, a duffel bag and a backpack with room for another soft bag.
While the mid-engine Corvette C8 does not have as much cargo space as the Corvette C7, which had a volume of 15 cubic feet, we think it still has more than enough storage for a two-seat sports car. It even has more cargo space than the current sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro, which has a paltry 9 cubic feet of storage space. That said, the Camaro’s back seats could be used to store bags, luggage and other items if they are not being used.
