Focus RS Cargo Area Dimensions

I'm considering an RS as a DD. If I do this I'd be getting rid of my F250 and my trailer that I haul my Mustang to the track in. I would go back to driving to the track for track days. Anyway, I was wondering if someone had the dimensions of the RS cargo area both with the back seats down and up?

Thanks for any help you can give.

Well I'm hoping for brand new. I've seen all years available around the country using Autotrader. Are there differences between the years? I think I read something about an improvement in something with the 2018 limited edition. Are the head gaskets already fixed in certain ones? Either way it would be a warranty/recall fix, correct?

I was just hoping maybe somebody here already measured or would be willing to do it. Just need to see if there's enough room for other stuff I would regularly haul around. My truck has more than enough room but if I ditch that for a simpler life (and better MPG) I need to know it will work out. Would they be the same as any Focus hatch? Not aware of any RS' near me at the moment.

Why not just go to the nearest Ford Dealer in your area that has a Focus RS for sale & answer all of those questions yourself? As far as the inside of the Hatch goes, Im fairly certain that every Focus measures the same, meaning that the RS is no different vs. a base model Focus SE Hatch.

As I said, no RS' in my area last I checked. Yeah, I figured they might be the same. Didn't want to talk to sales people just to get a few measurements. If there was an actual RS I might be buying it would be a different story.

Hoping someone had already done the measurements. Almost every vehicle I've researched in the past had this information somewhere. Though the post is only a day old so maybe someone will still chime in. Google search was not helpful.

Maybe Friday I'll see if there are any hatches around me. Surprisingly few last time I looked. Most are sedans.

What exactly are you looking to put back there? I mean a Ford Focus Hatchback is a small vehicle & a grocery getter, a commuter car. Ford offered a 350HP AWD version of the car & put a 40k price tag on it for the limited number of enthusiasts out there that want a fast daily & a weekend track car. As far as new & used RSs for sale, there are plenty of them, you just having to be willing to drive within a 200 mile radius. I know here in SoCal there are several brand new 2017s still for sale at Ford dealers & theyve been sitting for almost two years. They wont budge much on their prices. Cheapest one is 37k + fees.

5'-6' 2x4's is what I wondering about fitting. Exactly, I'm looking for a fun daily driver. I have no problem going 200 miles or more when it comes time to buy.

6' 2x4's might be stretching it a bit length wise, possibly a few sideways or stacked....You'll really need to see Nitrous blue in person, check out the pearlence...Magnetic or Shadow black are two additional great colors also......I really believe you'll need to open up your search radius & don't forget about shipping....IDK where your located at. btw I've had vehicles shipped w/ no issues.

Especially a Focus RS.

I'd pass on any white vehicles....For sure you'd want to check it out....but it'd be under warranty, you could have it shipped in a enclosed trailer if needed/wanted.
