I'd really like to get an idea of the space available when the rear seats are folded and the trunk is open like this picture:

If hatch owners are willing to measure, I'd really like to know the following:
-The horizontal distance from the top of the rear seat (folded down) to the end of the trunk near the rear bumper (Effectively the length of the cargo area)
-The vertical distance from the cargo floor to the limiting height of the cargo area, probably near the hatch hinges (the height of the cargo area)
-The width of the cargo area in between the rear wheel arches
It looks so large that I'm very interested in comparing it to my '91 Pathfinder.

From the german review in .pdf format from the Autobild post in "Why 6?":

For those interested:
Depth, seats up = 1.01m ~ 40 inches
Depth, seats down = 1.9m ~ 75 inches
Width = 1.01m ~ 42 inches
Based on the trunk capacity of 492litres I'm estimating:
Height to trunk lid ~ 18 inches
Height to hatch hinges ~ 36 inches

CVette, you looked at the wrong line I think. The width is 1.07 m, so add about 2 more inches to width. (Depth was 1.01 as you stated out).

We are talking about one of the widest boot spaces, thanks to the intelligent solutions on the back for the tires suspension etc...

Yep, javah, the 1.01 was a typo - should have been 1.07, but the width in inches is correct and is equivalent to 1.07m.

I measured my Pathfinder's cargo area yesterday:
Length (depth) - 70"
Width - 38"
Height - 34"

The Mazda 6 Hatchback is bigger! Woohoo!
