Anyone know a better way of storing the cargo cover? I looked through the instruction manual, and it shows a few steps.

1) Remove cargo cover
2) Lift trunk mat
3) Flip cargo over so the flap points the front of the car
4) Set down trunk mat
5) Hook trunk mat straps onto the two hooks

There's no cutout for the cargo cover, so the trunk mat rests on the cargo cover and bulges upwards at an angle. Note that I have a US-spec model with the spare tire (not sure if that makes a difference).

Hi Starbot.

I just posed the same question for my 2019 Hatch.

"Hello, 2019 Impreza Hatch. One month old. I like it. Hauls my bike well. I lifted up rear floorboard and stowed rear cargo cover . I do not need it for now.
It does not go deep enough on the floor beside tire, so when rear cover board is re-stalled, rear cover board is no longer completely flat.
Is that the way it is supposed to be or am I missing something real simple? Thanks."

Maybe that is the way it is supposed to be on these 2017 and up Hatchbacks.

It's the same with the Crosstrek. It doesn't fit...

The only time I've need to stow the cargo cover is when the rear seats are folded down, so since nobody's using the back seats the cargo cover goes in the rear seat footwells.

I saw those same instructions and tried it under the trunk mat and said 'who is the lame-o that came up with that idea?'

I've had window shade rear cargo covers on cars since 1998. I'm always folding down the rear seat, or at least half of it, for something. Skis all winter. Bicycle. Home Depot runs. You store them in the basement or the garage.
