These are the steps to get some candidates:

• First, check the specifications of the models that interest you in order to narrow down the list of vehicles.
• Next, compare and contrast the characteristics of these cars to come to a conclusion on which one will comply with your expectations the most.
• Last, contrast the specifications of a smaller set of cars according to your most exigent criteria.

One important feature is the cargo capacity; you want to pick a vehicle that is adequate for transporting the amount of luggage and gear that is necessary in the trips you will make. The trunk space is not only the most relevant factor in this aspect, but it could be decisive nonetheless; it should not be overlooked. In addition to this data, the room in the cabin is also note-worthy so that passengers will have the most space on the road. For instance, do you often travel? Do you like going on trips with your relatives? If you do, you should take note of the following models that stand out for their larger cargo capacity in comparison to other vehicles released in 2015 that are at your disposal in the current market.

1. Tesla Model S

This electric car Tesla Model S is one of the most luxurious out there at the moment; it combines the latest technology to provide great performance.
