Help: Rental Car Size & Luggage Space

Hi everyone,

Looking to rent a car from Budget for an upcoming 10-day trip.
Since we'll both be in WDW and on DCL, we'll have 3 large suitcases and the 4th will either be a large or a medium.

People: 2 adults, 2 kids in booster seats

What size car will we need? I know they give luggage suggestions in terms of how much will fit, but they aren't always accurate.

Do we need an SUV? If so, a smaller one (RAV4) or normal (Ford Escape)?

Or - could we deal with a full size?

IMO a full size should be adequate, some have very large trunks, like the Chevy Impala.

We had similar situation. 2 adults and 2 kids in boosters. Rented a Chevy Impala. My husband managed to fit 3 large suitcases in the trunk (size 62 linear inches w wheels)! We also had 2 carry on suitcases and managed to fit them too. No room for a 4th suitcase in the trunk (unless suitcases are smaller).
