I'm always amazed what my little Yaris can haul. I had forgotten how much you can stuff into a hatchback
Some recent examples (not all at the same time)
- an assembled Ikea sink cabinet
- a 3 drawer filing lateral cabinet (The guy said no way it would fit. It fit...)
- 17 sidewalk blocks!
- I'm a musician and I can easily haul: a large amp, 3 keyboards, a guitar, a box of cables, stands. And there's still room for the bass player and his bass

Not sure which is more impressive, the sidewalk blocks or the musical equipment!

I was also surprised when I managed to load much more stuff to Yaris than to my previous Fiesta.
Last time it was 22 boxes of wine (6 bottles in each), two snowboards, two sets of snowboard equipment (boots, helmets, pants, jackets...), two bags packed for a weekend, up to 5 large bags full of groceries after we stopped to do some shopping. And there was still enough room and only one backseat was folded down. This little car rocks!

And I remember, it was ten years ago when I bought a new bike and I needed to load it into my old 3-door Nissan Micra. People around would not believe but I easily put it inside. But it was easy because the front passenger seat could be folded as well.

In case anyone is wondering, you can fit:

-7x 8ft 2x4
-9x 8ft 1x4
-3x 8ft 4x4 (cut shorter though)
-lots of tools

In a 09 5dr with the hatch closed I had to pull my glovebox to fit the last few pieces in. No pics because it was raining very heavily.

Cheers.
