Hello,

Been thinking about this after reading some reviews from various countries. Here in Sweden the boot is listed as 451 liter capacity, same as in the UK. When I was shopping for mine I got all excited reading about how to "reclaim" additional volume only to be confounded when I got the car and it turns out the ones sold in Sweden do not have the higher level floor most markets get but a lower one with a single "layer" below. Coming from a car with similar boot volume 451 liter seems about right, which makes me wonder if Kia is overstating it for other markets. If it was measured differently (e.g. all the way to the roof) I doubt it would land on exactly the same number, so what's up with this? Do you guys in the UK really get the 451 liter claimed?

Seems like it's a bit misleading if Kia UK claims 451 liters, with part of it being taken up by foam storage compartments underneath. But you ought to be able to order the parts used here in Sweden (as well as Norway) and get an OEM fit right?

Well, should Kia use the measurement to the roof in the UK for some reason I doubt they'd arrived at exactly the same 451 liter volume. I think someone just screwed up and put the same specifications on all markets despite the differences.
