I own an Outback and am currently waiting for an Ascent. We travel with our dogs and squeeze 3 metal crates into the car. I went to dealer to take a look at space, but seem to have the wrong measurement for the clearance for the opening of the hatch from top to bottom. I need at least 40 inches width at the narrowest opening in the back and at least 27 inches from top to bottom to fit the crates in.

Rear gate opening width at floor: 47.0 in. Maximum: 47.2 in.

Cargo width between wheel housings: 45.9 in.

Cargo area height 33.9 in. (with moonroof: 33.6)

Cargo liftover height 32.0 in (distance from ground to cargo area)
Maybe 1 more measurement:) ?...from the back of the front seat (2nd & 3rd rows down) to the inside of the closed tailgate?:nerd:

Cargo area height 33.9 is the opening of the tailgate? What is the narrowest opening of the tailgate? I know that the length from the back of the front seat to the inside of closed tailgate is good.
Thanks so much!

In case future prospective buyers are dog people and want a LOT more information regarding use of the Ascent as a dogmobile, I highly recommend this Facebook group: Dog Sport Vehicle Ideas & Setup: https://m.facebook.com/groups/67449...ODU5MTQ3MDksMCwwOjIwOkt3PT0=&multi_permalinks

So much great information, measurements, and photos relating to how well specific crates fit and can be secured in a wide range of vehicles, including the Ascent. I found it extremely useful in making my decision to purchase this vehicle.
