These figures canīt be correct. The total storage is much smaller in the mirage, its 235-912 liters only. Thatīs comparable to my much smaller Daihatsu Cuore (19 cm narrower and 30 centimeters shorter) which has 157-930 liters. The height of the loading sill of the Space Star is 13 centimeters higher than that of my Daihatsu Cuore (72 centimeters vs. 59 centimeters) and the opening of the tailgate is much smaller.
Some Minicars like the Toyota Aygo or VW up! (and the badge-engineering models) might have even higher loading sills and smaller tailgates, but are also comparable concerning maximum storage (VW up! 951 liters, Hyundai i10 1046 liters). But the Space Star has slightly more room for the rear passenger legs.
Loading big boxes in the Space Star is no fun and I really didnīt buy the car because of its practicality which is much worse than that of my Daihatsu. Concerning practicality no car can compete with the Honda Jazz with magical seats in this class.
Just have a look at the picture:
