2019 Forester Length When Trunk Open?

My wife and I are very interested in the 2019 Forester. However we have a very tight parking spot in front of our house (both the front and back of the spot are walls), so the exact dimensions of the Forester are important.

While the length is generally available (~182 inches) we also need to make sure we have enough clearance to open the trunk.

Does anyone know the maximum distance the trunk door extends beyond the end of the vehicle when opening?

@ariadland I was trying to find the answer to this question when I was shopping too but came up empty. Once I got my new 2019 Limited in my garage I was shocked at the amount of room I had to spare. I just went out and measured and the hatch sticks out maybe 16 inches over the bumper in the full open position (tough to tell so I kinda eyeballed with the tape measure). So add that to the full length of the vehicle and you get something like 198 inches. I'd call it like 200 or 202 inches just to be safe.

It's deceiving since the full rear hatch height is like 35 something inches, but it slopes back pretty aggressively so that full hatch height isn't added on when open.

Happy shopping!
