I'll just point out that that "depends on the sedan". I had a sedan
where I could carry three full sections of commercial scaffolding _inside_
the car. Six 5'x5' uprights, six 2'x10' platform sections, and all the
cross-braces. 10' sections of conduit, or plumbing pipe were a 'nothing'.
I could put half-sheets (4'x4') of plywood _flat_ on the floor of the trunk,
and close the trunk lid. I had about 1500 lbs of actual cargo capacity, but
I "wasn't legal" with over about half-a-ton on board.
 A Cadillac Fleetwood on the 'long commercial' chassis, with a crica 8L
engine, it routinely delivered 27+ mpg on the highway, with the A/C on,
when lightly loaded.
