    does anyone know what the trunk dimension diagonally is in the 5 seat configuration? Also, I noticed there is some room under the seats, will it be enough space under there to put some 210cm/83inches skis diagonally?

    Finally, I saw some pictures of the trunk in the 5 seater where a small gap was visible under the seats from the trunk, can you put skis under there?

    Cheers

    Diagonal is a max of 90" and straight to the back of the seats is 76" with my front seats in their normal driving positions. With either of those dimensions, I would think the skis need to be at least 1-2" shorter because of the spread of the ski tips (on the diagonal both ski tips can't go to the perfect corner like the measuring tape I just used) and because you don't want ski tips only 1/4" off your seat backs.

    There's no way to go under the 2nd row seats with skis. There is a raised portion behind them, presumably for the motor/axle.

    I believe 83" diagonal would be fine, but you should still wrap the tips & tails to avoid damaging the backs of your seats or the tail gate.

    Two thoughts:

    There is a post floating around here somewhere where someone figured out she could slide her skis under her 'middle' row in a five seater. They pitched up at a diagonal but fit just fine. She had pictures too - it looked great!

    Secondly, in my six seat confit I can fit our 180cm skis just barely diagonally behind the middle row. Possibly you have a little more space with the five but 210 is pretty long...

    With regard to the person who angled the skis under the middle row, I wouldn't go on that assumption, at least not now. There is a separate debate about how the load floor is supported. Some 5-seaters have a support board that can be removed entirely while there's at least one comment that someone got that support board fixed in place so that it cannot be removed at all (which would completely block access to that area). My service center doesn't know. It's possible the method shown by the one user may not work going forward.
