I am strongly considering a MINI Cooper S (hardtop) for my next vehicle; I've actually wanted one for about 10 years now!
There's one piece of information that's important to me, that MINI doesn't seem to publish: the length
of the rear cargo space with the back seats down. They do publish the volume, but that's not what I need to know. I play keyboards in a band and my larger keyboard case measures 8.5" high X 17" wide X 60" long (21.6cm X 43cm X 152cm). Can anyone tell me whether this will fit in the boot, even diagonally, with the back seats down (perhaps with the front passenger's seat all the way forward)?
The nearest dealer is about an hour away, and at current fuel prices, I really don't want to make a special trip just to take a couple measurements.
Thanks in advance!
