Cars and cargo space... a babble

So, in general, cars talking about cargo space in cubic feet. The problem seems to be that no one can agree on how to messure this. To look at the mazda5, you can find quotes of anything from 70 cubic feet to 44 for with both 2nd and 3rd seats folded and anything from 15 to 4 with all the seats up.

So I've been searching for "real" messurments (because I can't get this off my mind and it doens't make sense for me to go to a dealer until april.) I think I acutally found some and found that that despite the shorter nose, and longer body and wheel base, the cargo area is a mere 2" longer than my current saturn. How does that happen?! I can't really find good numbers on how tall the space is (with out blocking visiblity) but I'm really hoping that will be the big win. I'm still confused that it does not have a longer cargo hold than my saturn... So confused. I really hope it WILL be able to carry things better. What really fightens me is how small the mazda3's space must be.

The more I look into modern cars, the more I realize just how awesome my current car is. *sigh*
