What car is big enough to sleep in the back of?

Asked by Raymond

I'm a piano technician who travels through NSW. The job can take me into the evenings and I end up somewhere curled up on the back seat. So I want to find a wagon or suv I can actually put the back seats down flat and sleep in on occasion as its usually too far or too late to find a motel or hotel. I went looking at vehicles to find none really give a distance from the boot to the back seat only volume.

Which wagons and SUVs are actually long enough to do this? The only one I can think of is the Holden sports wagon but I'd take a new Peugeot 3008 if I could sleep in it. By the way I'm 170cm. hope you may have some suggestions.

It's hard to give you a definite recommendation, as most cargo measurements are in litres rather than floor length, but I reckon most mid-size wagons and large SUVs would do the job for you. 

Most of these have a flat boot floor with the seats folded, and likely have ample body length for sleeping. 

So Mazda6, Skoda Superb or Ford Mondeo wagons are worth a look, plus large SUVs like the Mazda CX-9, Kia Sorento and Hyundai Santa Fe

Don't be afraid to try them out for size at the dealers either. You'd certainly test out a mattress before buying right?!
