    I am reading the 110 gets 646 L when 2nd row seats are up, which is half of the Disco's 1200L...
    It does say 1075 L loaded to the roof, but who would load their car to the roof when going offroad?

    I like its look much better than the SUV-shape of the Disco 5, but boot is too small
    Will have to pray for a boxy Disco 6

    Thatís a goof point, havenít looked atthe accessories yet, didnít think they would offer one on a 7-seater

    Does anyone know if the 1200L bolt space of the disco is measured with boot filled to the roof as well?

    If you need 7-seats you probably wouldn't be using the cargo barrier, depends on your kids though.....

    I run a 7-seater (not Land Rover) and have fitted a cargo barrier when I need to carry stuff for work.
    I remember the 'carry on' on the forum when I mentioned this ! Difficult to get people in when the cargo barrier is fitted but I'm sure someone will try. The company that supplied it included a 'glass hammer' fitted to the rear along with a warning sign to state nobody to be carried behind the cargo barrier.

    Wouldn't be holding breath for that.
    That's really the major downside with the unitary body construction.
    Notice that they're all rounded or moulded, so you won't see one with a 'boxy design' .. like a Defer or Transit van.
    The inner double skin walls(strength) and rounded corners(strength) for the unitary chassis is basically a requirement.
