Despite sharing the most trunk volume with the BMW 5-series, the XF held one less carry-on than most of its rivals. The highest lift-over height and limited interior storage space thwart its aspirations as an ideal travel companion.

Inside and out, the 2018 XF is identical to the previous model year, which means its cargo space and interior storage are exactly the same.

Interior Cubby Storage

A lack of interior storage means multiple smartphones and wallets will need other places to hide. There’s a small tray at the front of the center console and decent-size door pockets, particularly in the back seat. The minuscule center console is more amusing than it is useful. Unlike every rival we tested, the XF doesn’t have a single bin or cubby in its trunk.

Why do we use ping-pong balls

To determine the interior space available to stash travel essentials, we’ve devised a range of measuring protocols. We use six beverage containers ranging in size and shape to gauge cupholder accommodation. We stack, stuff, and arrange 9-by-14-by-22-inch cardboard boxes to quantify the number of airline-carry-on-size suitcases that will fit in a trunk or folded seat’s cargo space. To measure irregularly shaped gloveboxes, door pockets, and console bins, we fill each container with 1.5-inch-diameter ping-pong balls. It’s tempting to convert the number of spheres to a volume (cubic inches), but we resist that calculation because-as with the box of tissues, 12-ounce can of soda, or gallon of milk you might stash in these compartments-there are voids between the balls. Random packing (our procedure) nullifies approximately one-third of the available space. The negative space between the balls could theoretically be reduced to 25 percent of an irregular shape with precise stacking, but while we might be pedantic, we’re not crazy.
