What class of car is a BMW X7?

I’m moving out of my childhood home later this month. I don’t want to worry about paying for a U-Haul, but I’m worried I won’t be able to fit all of my luggage into the back of my BMW X7. Is there an easy way to know how much cargo capacity I have to work with?

According to the EPA’s guidelines, in terms of class, a [BMW X7] is categorized as a full size luxury crossover.
Your vehicle’s cargo capacity and passenger capacity volumes are combined to determine it’s class. Class is really just another way of referring to your car’s size without using exact measurements. There are a bunch of different scales for determining your car’s class, but the EPA’s vehicle size classes are one of the most widely used scales.
According to the U.S. Fuel Economy Guide for SUVs:
  • A mini crossover SUV has less than 116 cubic feet of combined passenger and cargo volume
  • A compact crossover SUV has between 116 and 125 cubic feet of combined passenger and cargo volume
  • A midsize SUV has between 125 and 140 cubic feet of combined passenger and cargo volume
  • A full size SUV has between 140 and 170 cubic feet of combined passenger and cargo volume
  • A minivan SUV has more than 170 cubic feet of combined passenger and cargo volume
Knowing your vehicle’s class can help you know whether or not it’s necessary to invest in a towing hitch, or if you’re going to have to dish out some extra cash on your car insurance policy.
