    2016 CX-9 - Bike fit in trunk?

    Hi guys - currently shopping for a mid-size SUV. The Mazda CX-9 is at the top of our list but the only thing that I am worried about is the cargo space - specifically, the (short) height of the trunk area. Most of the time I will carry my bike on a rack, but for longer road trips I would like the option to transport the bike inside the vehicle. I would be taking off the front tire and standing the bike up like this:

    Any idea if this would work in a 2016 CX-9? I would plan on putting down one side of the seats in both the 2nd and 3rd row (similar to the picture in the above link).

    Thanks in advance.

    I rented a VW Tiguan for a Moab trip. Fit two bikes and a ton of gear with back seats down.

    Are you averse to taking the rear wheel off?

    No I wouldn't have a problem with that... I assume with both wheels off it should fit for sure, right? I just want to be able to store it upright in the vehicle for longer road trips and to keep it in my vehicle during work so I can ride immediately after without having to go home to pick up my bike first.
