I gotsa question about the hatch cargo area. I'm tryin to save a little on shipping, anyone know if a box that's 56 x 22 x 26 will fit in? By my measurements it will fit inside with couple of inches to spare lengthwise. I did notice that the hatch opening has a lip of a couple of inches on the bottom, that shouldn't be a problem though, right? Also, if it does fit in the car, will I be able to close the hatch since the rear window is slanted? Maybe I'm overthinking but I don't wanna drive 2 hours to find out that I need to ship it anyway. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

Without the actual box that you're going to pick up, it's hard to say. The only dimension of concern is the 56" length. Try measuring with the hatch closed and starting about two feet up off the floor so you can see if there's room even with the glass. Also, with the seats folded down, I find that they do have a bit of an angle, so you will want to add another two or three inches just to be sure.
