Lots of threads - "hey, look at my cool storage idea" Let's not over think it. Pick your container, pick you bungee and Bammo find what's right for you.

My 2012 VW Jetta Sportwagon (which was involved in the Diesel Gate scandal and was purchased back from me by VW. I used that cash to buy our CX-5) came with a cargo management system called Cargo Blocks and Monster Mat.

Here are the blocks at Amazon.

And here's the blocks and the mat.

Before I sold the Jetta back to VW I removed the mat and the blocks. The mat fit almost perfectly in the back of the CX-5, with a small adjustment. The blocks stick to the mat with Velcro and work great!

I did the same. The Diesel Gate buyback was too much to refuse. I also still have the mat & blocks. I had a 2011 TDI hatchback & I never thought to see if it was useable in the CX-5 with some tweaks.

I had to trim a bit of the mat, right where the back seat folds. It's hard to tell that it's been trimmed unless you're looking for it. Other than that it's a great fit.

Nice! Better and cheaper than my $22 solution after the 10% coupon. I used the supplied straps to secure the container on the passenger side with the hook near the wheel well and the hook near the trunk lid opening. So far I have not really had a chance to use it.

More often than I should admit I accelerate and corner like an idiot so I definitely should have any container strapped down.

@hal2 - is that a clear cargo cover in the first pic? Where did you get that?
Unlikely, just the standard OEM retractable cargo cover which has a screen or netlike feature that extends out when trunk is opened. Saves weight space and does not create a solid barrier between the passenger compartment and trunk.

Yes, original Mazda cargo cover. That screen portion is only about 8 in deep, and retracts into the roll up when closed, so it is a solid cover over the cargo area when the trunk is closed
