Load and unload whatever you’re hauling more easily in the EX30’s wide 14.1 cu. ft. load compartment. It has a flat floor, no lip and you can lower it for extra convenience.

The stylish load compartment gives you the space you need to bring your gear and luggage. To make it really useful, it has a regular shape and the rear-wheel suspension is designed not to intrude on the load area. Shopping bag holder hooks help to keep your stuff in order. Four load-securing eyelets help you secure your cargo. And if you need more space, the two-split rear backrest folds separately to make it possible to combine both cargo and passengers without compromising on comfort. The maximum load volume behind the rear seat is 318 litres under the detachable parcel shelf. This includes a 61 litres hidden storage under the load floor. Adding to versatility, the load floor can be easily adjusted in two levels – normal flat level and low level for larger items such as suitcases. With the rear seats folded, a foldable protection net can be fitted behind the front seats to allow full utilisation of the load compartment and help protect occupants from loose cargo.

Need to pack more in? There’s a hidden compartment under the load floor and the hood, and you can fold down some or all the backrests to increase cargo capacity.

The rear seat backrest is split into two sections 40/60 which makes them easy to fold individually, so you can transport both passengers and cargo without compromising comfort. The discrete ISOFIX attachments in the outer rear seat positions allow quick and safe installation of ISOFIX-prepared child seats.

A central multi-storage gives everyone space on the floor. Pop down your bags and takeaways without worrying about spills. There’s more space slotted underneath it for even smaller items.

Look for hooks, holders, nets, boxes and pockets throughout the cabin and boot. Volvo cars are designed for life, and life comes with stuff.

So....................

What are people going to use the rear passenger storage box for? Litter as Volvo themselves suggest seems a good idea to be honest because it looks like you could put things in from the front seats.

But I'm wondering what enterprising accessory firms might produce aftermarket for either replacing the box entirely or producing inserts for it.

What would YOU envisage could go in there?

I reckon you could put something in (shallower than the box is presently) which could slide forwards under the armrest up to to wireless charging shelf.

That open area in front of center console is a great place to put a purse. I don't know why a purse holder isn't standard on most cars.

I'm liking the idea of the center dash storage area over a traditional glove box because 1) it's always awkward to reach over there, 2) you never want to try to reach over there while driving, and 3) it'll be nice to store stuff in there while driving like my phone, wallet, other random stuff. I could probably design a nice storage solution with my 3D printer to organize things better. Pretty excited!

Yes - it's surprising no one's come up with a central location before (says he expecting someone will come up with previous examples). Of course until lately all the heater gubbins and the "radio" would have been in that location, and opening would have conflicted with the gearstick.

Potentially more common on vans of course because of their particular configuration often with three seats:

... and some cars have them on the top:
