Alamo standard SUV big enough for 5 people & 5 luggage?

Hi everyone, we are taking my sons girlfriend with us next year so there will be 5 people with 5 sets of luggage. Will this all fit in any of Alamos standard SUV range?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Standard will get you something like a Ford Edge - 5 People / Cases should be fine.
To be sure, go and have a look at one in your nearest Ford dealer.

As per Scully above, good advice given.
We had a Jeep Grand Cherokee for 3 of us last trip. Nice actually.
Only had 3 cases, 1 grip and 3 cabin cases albeit one of those was on the back seat.

However lets be honest three in the back on 99% of vehicles isn't exactly comfortable but it is achievable. Would I do it with a 250 mile drive? No
But for poodling around the Orlando area totally fine.

Thank you both, we will only really be cramped on the drive from and to the airport, the rest of the time should be fine. Its not a long journey so Im sure they'll manage

The Sante Fe 7 seat which falls ibto standard category could work. Back seats down might give you the required boot space. No gaurantee what will be there though
